Who would I Recommend this book to?
This book would be great for a novice thrifter. If you have been wanting to try your hand at thrift shopping give this book a read for some good tips.
The book introduced me to some online thrift shops that I am excited to check out. Also, I loved the up-cycling chapter. There are some really good ideas for redoing thrifted items.
I did feel as though some of the information was common sense but that maybe because I have been thrifting for a while now.
Overall this book was a quick enjoyable read and I did pick up a few tips. It made me want to hit the thrift stores ASAP. I give it a 3 out of 5.
