THRIFTING IN TENNESSEE!
Just over a week ago, I flew to
Tennessee for a little mini-vacation! I was
excited to check out some local thrift in the Chattanooga area, and what I
discovered were some neat items that were priced fairly consistently with what
you might find in Michigan thrift store—or should I say, “Tharift Stower”?

hats! Below you’ll find some items that
I bought, and some that I didn’t but wanted to share with you! My prize find
was the Gant Gaither signed silk Tiger dress below. It was only three

SO BAD ASS!)
I had to throw in a few shots of the gorgeous spot we hiked to at Fall Creek Falls. So pretty!
This little gem was carved into the paint on the state park bathroom stall:
