Apron Thrift Girl
apronthriftgirl.typepad.com/apron_thrift_girl
This blog is a great combo of thrifting, swapping, frugality thought and tips, crafty stuffy (l love her menu planning pages), and great design. Apron Thrift Girl is also the mastermind behind the $99 Thrift Challenge, which I think is pretty much the sweetest thing ever.

Confessions of an Apron Queen
anapronaday.blogspot.com
You may already know this blog as the host of my favorite weekly blog event “Vintage Thingies Thursday.” Aside from VTT, though, it also features a great pin-up girl inspired blog design, an excellent recipe section, and an occasional drool-worthy antiquing photo journal. PLUS she gives away vintage aprons every week. For real.

Fresh Vintage
freshvintage.typepad.com/freshvintage
Colleen’s blog features the great stuff she finds, mostly at garage and estate sales, outside Philadelphia. She clearly has both a good eye and the requisite good luck.

My Thrifting Finds
thriftstorefun.blogspot.com
This is a newish blog featuring photographs of my online pal Tilia’s thrifty finds.     

Thrift Candy
thriftcandy.blogspot.com
Blog features both blog owner Missa’s original thrifts and her favorite picks from Flickr’s 100% Thrifted and Nifty Thrift pools. She describes herself as a “kid in a candy store” and it comes through in her positive and fun (though stylistically very plain) blog.

Thrifting in Oblivion
thriftinginoblivion.blogspot.com
is a how-to blog about thrifting in the Southwest US (particularly the New Orleans area). It features

Thrifty Goodness
thriftygoodness.blogspot.com
A combo craft and thrifting blog.

Queen of Fifty Cents
queenoffiftycents.blogspot.com
Uses her blog mainly to chronicle her Saturday morning garage sale and estate sale adventures. They’re worth reading.
