What you'll do

You won't want to miss my master class on thrifting casual wear at mind-blowing prices! I've got tips and secrets you have likely never thought about. This master class fits all experience levels. Everyone comes away a better thrifter!

Our tour will convene in the morning for coffee, pastries and introductions, I'll prepare guests for our exciting thrifting excursion by starting with basic guidelines often taken for granted. You think you know denim, but being presented with so many choices can be daunting without a plan and a little advanced coaching. Then we'll embark on our itinerary of thrift meccas with the highest turnover and quality merchandise!

The guidance provided during this experience will offer a distinct advantage to finding and wearing better quality goods at distinct savings. But we will also discover the possibilities for up-cycling and resale. Because the fabric is so ubiquitous in today's style sensibilities, this experience grants guests many options for their finds. If you love good stuff and are crazy about bargains like me, don't hesitate to book this Experience. You won't regret it!!

NOTE: OTHER DAYS/TIMES AVAILABLE! 10 AM is the standard time set aside in the calendar, but I'm happy to make arrangements for the afternoon. Need a specific date? Give me a heads up. I am also happy to host groups. Just drop me a note and let me know what works best!
Other things to note
There is a moderate amount walking and standing involved. It's advisable to wear sneakers or comfy footwear. For trying things on, I usually wear my ASICS and yoga gear with layers I can remove easily

A perfect excursion to the hidden shops in the area. With Allison as our guide, we found some very cool treasures at the local resale shops. Allison’s eye for quality and her approachable personality are second to none!
