If you are a virgin to thrifting and want in on the action but don't know how to get started then look no further because Looking Fly on a Dime by Patrice J. Williams comes to the rescue. Patrice is the writer and owner of the style blog Looking Fly on a Dime. This eBook is a thorough guide, yet a light read, chock full of great tips to snag designer and one-of-a-kind pieces to add some flare to your style for cheap, like sometimes even $1 cheap! She includes tips on prep for an outing, thrifting etiquette, what to get and what to put back, whether to thrift alone or with friends, how to sanitize; deordorize and care for your finds and ideas for how to rock your secured goodies. As a seasoned thrifter, the tips she shared are the sames jewels that I would share with newbies. I enjoyed and drew inspiration from the pictures Patrice shared of looks she's created from partially or fully thrifted items. I especially loved the look she created with a beautiful, thrifted cape. I want hers! I so want one for the fall and am hoping the thrifting gods will place a fab one in my view during my next thrifting excursion!

You can find the book through Amazon (Kindle). Happy thrifting!
