I’ve heard people say it’s wrong to resell because you’re taking things that needy people could buy. But today two of my family members said it to me (they didn’t know that I do this). Suddenly with the comment coming from them, I got really self-conscious. I wondered, β€œWho else that knows I resell thinks I’m doing a terrible thing??”

Devils advocate here: What if you source someplace besides a thrift store? Does that make it more acceptable? Yesterday I hit up the ole Plato’s Closet 75% off sale which made all of my purchases cheaper than my favorite thrift store. And I wasn’t technically thrifting.

I have loved thrifting for several years now, before it even occurred to me to resell any of it for a profit. In fact to this day I have a really hard time taking it seriously as a β€œbusiness” because I buy so many things that I end up keeping. Sometimes when I start feeling self-conscious like this I justify it by saying that I wear everything myself a time or two and then sell it. Which makes it my own clothes I’m selling. Which is often the truth lol

One of the best things about picking is having the opportunity to meet such interesting people. I met a man to purchase a dining set this week. When I inquired about all of the amazing art on the wall, he asked if I wanted to meet the artist. Within a couple of minutes of meeting New England artist Sandy Swan (in her 80s), she looked at me and asked β€œCan I draw you?” Clearly you know how I answered her question, but without hesitating I replied β€œHell yes you can!” πŸ‘‰πŸ»πŸ‘‰πŸ»πŸ‘‰πŸ» scroll to see her signature and title for the piece πŸ˜‰ #MIDCENTURYCOLLECTIVE #fineart #originalart #originalartwork #art #watercolor #artist #artwork #originalartworks #originalartist #newenglandartist #newenglandart #portrait #portraits #portraitsociety #handsomedevil #handsomedevils #signedart #newhaven #newhavenct #newhaveninsta #newengland #picker #picking #picked #sandyswan #sandraswan #personalcollection #drgoodwillhunting
