Kim and I love Flickr not just for the great inspiration but also for the interesting people we meet. Thrift Store Addict is one such Flickr member. Thrift Store Addict, let’s call him T.S.A., is exactly what his name implies – someone who spends their spare time haunting local thrift stores searching for interesting finds. T.S.A. has taken it one step further though. He has furnished his apartment with retro finds from the 50s, 60s and 70s and he never pays more than a couple of dollars for each piece! His Flickr pages are filled with his thrift shop treasures and we have slowly seen his living room change over the months as new pieces are incorporated. As you can tell from the photos he likes to swap things out. Nothing is “precious” except that it is because T.S.A. has found it, researched it and shared it with others. Some may just see clutter. Others will see funky finds and a commitment to a “green” ethic of reuse. I see a groovy bachelor pad.
P.S I must warn you though T.S.A. is addictive himself. A totally charming guy! Oh and an update…the T.S.A. etsy store is coming. Seems like his closets are groaning with goodies and he has to off load some loot. We’ll keep you informed.
