Young House Love - Macklemore Thrift Shop Challenge. - A Video Response -
Last week, the fun family over at Young House Love issued a (completely unofficial) Macklemore Thrift Shop Challenge. For full details, check it out, here. The gist of the challenge is to go to your local thrift shop with $20 and share your spoils.
I have to confess - I leave the farm with the goal of clothes shopping for myself about once every 3.5 years. And even then it is for something useful, like flannel lined work jeans. Lame. So, since a large part of my closet consists of clothes from high school (and, it turns out, most clothes aren't meant to last over a decade..) it seemed logical to see if I could find some daily wear clothes at the local thrift shop. I mean, the Petersiks told me to, right?
Here is my reply, in video form. (Be warned, there were other elements to the challenge in which I completely fell on my face. As in, "did not complete". It might have something to do with being my life's own photographer and soundtrack editor...while often dragging along the four kids.)
Speaking of kids - I tried to hand the camera to my 3 and 4 year olds and have them shot the modeling pictures of the sweet spoils... epic fail. It's almost like they're only 3 and 4 years old... So, I just had to use the timer on the camera. It worked. So, without further ado:
See, we have some fun down here on the farm! While we may not have an abundance of stores in rural America, the ones we have make up for it in awesomeness. Quality over quantity, right?
