Thrift Store HOT: Upcycled Sweaters!

Want to know what's hot in thrift store shopping right now?
I am going to tell you! 

Brrrr winter is right around the corner! Right now is the perfect time to create some cozy 
 accessories for you and your home by taking advantage of the fabulous prices of thrift shop
sweaters. Look in the men's sweater section for cashmere sweaters. These super soft
luxuries work great transformed into pillow covers, accessories, or coordinate a few
 and sew them together into a blanket for a friend!

*Remember my friends: Pay no mind to that spot of ink on the cuff or tiny hole near the 
label. If the rest of the sweater looks great and is what you are looking for, get it. Don't let 
a small flaw hold you back from the perfect sweater if you aren't going to be using that part
of the sweater in your project. Note the flaw to the clerk and they may even give you a discount.
It never hurts to ask, I always do!
