This past week, I went to the beach with my dear friend Sherian for some "girl time". The highlight of my trip was thrifting while we were there and getting to meet one of my blog buddies! One of my sweet blogging friends, Donna, lives in the area and manages a thrift shop. I emailed Donna and we arranged a time to meet at her awesome shop! It is always so exciting to meet a blog friend in person after reading their blog for so long.
Donna was just as sweet and precious as she is on her blog and I enjoyed so much getting to meet her in person! She has children who live near me. Hopefully if she is ever up my way, she will give me a call and we can see each other again. I would love that.
Donna's shop is very nice and the proceeds benefit a teen shelter/home in the area. It is a home where teens live that have had to be taken away from their parents. Not because the teens have been bad, but where the parents were sent to jail or were involved in drugs,etc.
I found some treasures at the shop and 2 things I will need to refinish. I got a really neat old shelf and also a table that I want to use to put a plant on. Sherian and I spent the entire day thrifting from one shop to the other. We were in heaven!! Then on Saturday we attended the largest flea market in SC at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. More on that later. It was an awesome show and we found lots of wonderful treasures.
Donna, I so enjoyed getting to meet you and visit. Your lunch recommendation was wonderful and we had the best seafood.
Ladies, I would highly encourage you to make an effort to meet your blogging buddies if you live nearby. It is so much fun to get to connect in person and see each other!!!
Love & blessings,
