It’s hard to believe September has gone and Fall is approaching fast. I’m happy to bring the third edition of “Let’s Go Thrifting” – The Lifestyle of the Thrift and Famous magazine. It was very exciting putting this issue together as I focus on two of my favorite decor items: Bar Carts and Black Art. I chose the bar carts because holiday entertaining season is approaching, and what better way to entertain than with a stylish beverage cart. Marsha of MJonesStyle joins me with tips on how to style your cart. For the love of vintage, read about the re-introduction of the “new art” to grace our walls.

I hope you enjoy this edition and share with your friends.As always, Happy Hunting While You Thrift Your House into a Home!
