11 Things I Thrifted In August
Rain, leaks, COVID...a carefree-summer it was not. Thankfully, the thrifting was reliably 🔥 AF.

We are upstate working on Future Cottage, and being it’s a No Camp month, grabbing stolen hours here and there to work where/when we can ain’t always easy. Yesterday, I was hiding out at Bartlett House, working on this very edition, when a lovely person came over to my table and told me she loved…this newsletter. I pointed to my screen and told her I was writing it “like right now!”…and, I swear, it completely made my summer (THANK YOU, kind person).
Bartlett House yesterday when my salad arrived, right after someone came over to my little table and Made My Day.🌻😬
A summer that has not felt much like Summer at all. We had RAIN and a few leaks to go with it. A whole A/C system to replace (+ a mini makeover). A surprise visit from COVID (HI👻). And, now Mercury is retrograde…🤡. But as someone who is not of this particular season, my expectations for summer are always generally low. Like, if I manage to wear a swimsuit only once and catch a sunset with a drink (not made by me) in my hand, I’m winning.
See ya, Summer! Winning with an armful of vintage Japanese kitchen things and a vintage Ralph Lauren rugby shirt…fall, you have my ❤️.
BUT…in the absence of Carefree Summer (whomst is she??), salvation/solace/sunshine shall always be found in the form of estate sales, thrifting road trips, and regular drive-by’s at my favorite therapy spots. Because I’m currently stockpiling goodies for a special project up here (stay tuned, it’s awesome😎) AND my follow-up Brooklyn yard sale with Stacy London (September 30, details on the way), I’ve managed to accumulate…THINGS. A lot of them. So, it wasn’t so easy whittling it down to just 11 here. But, you know, we do what we must, friends….xxCb
