Thrift Bound

I LOVE to thrift bound!! For those of you who don't know what bounding is..bounding is basically low key cosplay/ costumes. Bounding started as a way to wear outfits at Disney World since adults can't wear costumes to the park. And thus, a movement was born. It's not just relegated to Disney. You can Harry Potter Bound, Star Wars Bound, Marvel Bound, DC Bound, Carrie Bradshaw Bound and on and on and on.

Story of a Small Shop: Volume 2

Volume 2: A Really Good Day The Thrifty Duckling Holy crap! Maybe I can really do this thing. But do people really live their dreams? Is it as simple as that? Of course it's not simple and yes, it's possible! Dreams exist to teach our brains that possibilities exist beyond our every day realities. But they don't come cheap and they don't come easy! Candice, Jenna, Cristina and Bethy...you made the first week of my shop opening an extraordinary day!! I wrote it down so I'd remember to never forget what it's like to be fully supported by good friends you've known for a long time, good friends you've met on Instagram and good friends you didn't expect to show...
