About

Hi!  I guess this is where I write about myself…something I have never been particularly fond of doing- but here goes!

First, age- cause that says so much…?  I am 27 years old, and female- my name can go both ways.  I currently live in Nashville, TN where I moved from Connecticut to pursue a career in songwriting!  I have always loooved, lived and breathed music, mainly in that I play classical piano, keyboard, and sing.  However, fashion, sports and wine are also main interests of mine.   Yes, wine can be an interest. 

For purposes of this blog, I am a thrift store lover.  I have always, well for the past 7 years, loved to shop at thrift stores, mainly the Goodwill.  I love the thrill of the hunt, and never knowing what you are going to find, or what new item you can make out of what you find. 

I also love Goodwill’s mission of helping others to find jobs and get back on their feet when no one else will help them.  With this blog, I hope to inspire others to start shopping at Goodwill more, and to see it for the treasure trove that it is, and to just be able to share the amazing things that I find for next to nothing!  I find some amazing clothing, jewelry and household items there.  I hope that one day, you will too.  And help someone out while you are doing it.

    Hooray for classical piano!!! 🙂 Do you still get to play much? Man, I wish I had a piano. When we move out of this apartment, I’m going to get out and start taking students! 🙂

      Yeah, I saw in your profile that you play classical piano- we are few and far between! And not as much as I’d like, because although I moved to TN for music, my full sized piano is still in CT at my mom’s. And also because once I start, it’s hard to stop for like hours! So that is a deterrent. Taking students sounds interesting, I should give that a try as well.

      I also saw that you taught in the DR? That sounds awesome. How did that come about? Were you certified here in the states first? It sounds interesting to me…

      Awesome! And thanks for stopping by! Nashville is a great city for thrifting, not that I can compare it to other cities as I haven’t lived anywhere else, but I have definitely not been lacking in places to go thrift here. There are three local Goodwills alone!:) Hope you found some great stuff while you were here
