Stripping down – sometimes it’s necessary. Enjoy this post by Tina

Just Ask Tina

I love going thrift shopping. I got hooked after an old friend of mine turned me on to it about twenty some-odd years ago. We’d get a kick out of people at church telling us how cute our outfits were, knowing we paid about five bucks for the full ensemble! And then there were those Sunday mornings when one of us would whisper over to the other, “I’d go up for prayer if I didn’t have $2.92 written in red grease pencil on the bottom of my shoe!”

Slowly but surely I will get there- I think.:-/
