A Baton Rouge Guide to Thrifting - Part I
It’s finally here: a guide to thrifting in Baton Rouge - Part 1! This blog is more of a vlog because I felt that it could show off more than I could in pictures- don’t worry, I don’t think I’ll ever be an actual vlogger, I’m too awkward and Oliver is too needy lol.
I’m excited to share this with you because I want my community to feel comfortable and confident to shop secondhand for things. We don't need to put our money towards mass produced products. Don’t get me wrong, I am still very guilty of shopping at big stores, but I’m learning to make a habit of shopping secondhand for things first. Plus, you can find some really amazing and unique items that not everyone else owns.
Here’s my breakdown on these three places:
Purple Cow: I love this thrift store because it is so clean and organized. When I feel brave enough to go thrifting for clothes I always go here first because I feel like I can find things easily and not get overwhelmed. They also do good job at posting things they get on social media- so you can possibly see something you like online and snag it before someone else does!
Family Thrift: I just love family thrift. It’s not the most organized place so it’s good to go to when you have a decent amount of time and you feel like digging. I’ve found a lot of treasures here and the prices are always pretty low!
Joseph’s Storehouse: This thrift store is a little bit outside of Baton Rouge, but to me it’s worth the drive. It’s huge - like really huge. They are the place to go if you need furniture because they are stocked up on it. I’ve seen so many good pieces there that I wish I could have gotten if we had a bigger house! Since it’s a little outside of Baton Rouge and it’s huge, I’d also only recommend going here if you have a lot of time on your hands.
I hope you feel encouraged to get out there and try thrifting yourself! Please share with me any good finds you get :)
Happy Thrifting, friends!
