Imperfection and Thrifting 

There is beauty in imperfection. I saw a doll missing her left arm in the thrift store today. I picked her up with the intention of throwing her into the trash. But I notice there was something special about this doll. 

Even though her left arm was missing, she was still a beautiful doll. In a world where people will do anything to be perfect, it’s nice to be reminded that IMPERFECTION is just as beautiful. 

I use to be an out-of-control perfectionist and I literally developed stomach ulcers as a result. The difficulties of life humbled me and transformed me into the woman I am becoming. The THRIFTLife is teaching me so much about real authentic beauty. 


My hair may not be perfect sometimes; my knees hurt often; I need reading glasses now; I have crazy painful headaches; life seems unfair sometimes, and the list goes on and on. BUT….what matters most is that external imperfections produce the most amazing inner beauty. 

God created us all with extraordinary beauty inside, and it gives us the ability to see beauty in anything if we simply look beyond the “perfection”. 

I love the ThriftLife because I get to encounter treasure & the most amazing people. I see God. I see Him in the people and the many different items that are donated. 

“An ordinary life can be extraordinary, there is beauty in IMPERFECTION, and that magic can be found in the everyday”

Junk = Treasure

Junk always equals Treasure. I am an ever evolving professional thrifter and I am learning that there is no such thing as junk. 

All so called junk has a purpose and when the creator of that purpose is introduced to the so called junk, treasure is born.


Thrifting is the heartbeat of living simple. It’s a trend that will never end.

I love to see people buy used, tattered items and use their artistic imagination to create something new. 

There are no mistakes, just freedom to create.
