I Love Thrifting Houston Style

We had a fabulous time at the 1st annual I love Thrifting Party created by Mr. Goodwill Hunting and hosted by a number of bloggers from different cities.  We had a great turn out in Houston.  The party was held at A Perfect Fit Resale Boutique and Clothes for Kids Resale.

Owner Marie Pace, from A Perfect Fit Resale Boutique, brings her southern hospitality to anyone who enters her store and offers a frequent buyer program, monthly sales and lay-a-way.  If you’re ever in Houston, check them out and tell them Katie Mac sent you!

Now, who wants to thrift on an empty stomach?  Not Houston!  We had a fruit and cheese tray, summer sausage, and crackers....all with a glass of Pinot Grigio….now we’re off and ready to shop!

A perfect fit resale boutique has a wide selection of name brand women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories…so many choices, what’s a girl to do?  SHOP till she drops!

We had such a fabulous time shopping!

The DIY girls!

If you need to pick something up for the kiddo's, no worries, we've got you covered! Roxanne Weideman is the owner of Clothes for Kids Resale the oldest resale shop in Houston.  Her shop has a huge selection of children’s clothing from sizes newborn to 16.  Another special treat is to see “Smokey” the cat who can be found chilling at the checkout counter.

I handed out The Mac Styles Survival Kit.  It had everything you need to keep you going for a full day of thrifting - water, snack, antibacterial lotion and my business card..LOL  

I received such positive feedback that I’m thinking of hosting another party.  We can’t wait till next year!
I wanted to send a special thank you to everyone who came out. We had a wonderful day of thrifting and making new friends.
