yours truly

Another gem of Winston Salem's secondhand shops has made an impression on me and I'd like to share it with you! This shop, located on one of the quaintest stretches of Reynolda road, features anything from vintage to modern clothing and shoes, to handmade pottery, old books, and furniture.

One of the employees was kind enough to talk to me a bit about the store and also communicate with me about how they function. Not only do they support the community by buying and selling gently used merchandise, but they also feature pottery from a local artist, and furniture from local venders.  I spent over an hour looking through racks of clothing and browsing an entire room of furniture and home accents!

My absolute favorite part of shopping secondhand is finding unique treasures that are unexpected and describe perfectly something about me. For example, IF we were redecorating a bathroom, I would now own a red tub (see below right), and a new bathroom would be created around that piece. But because we can't afford any of that, I'll let someone else be inspired by its uniqueness.  Instead, I found a cute, vintage clutch that was tucked away under a pile of purses, and I LOVE it (below left).

**thanks yours truly**
