Parting is such sweet sorrow

July 29, 2013

If you’re a regular reader, you’ve probably noticed the longer and longer gaps between posts. After a lot of thought, we’ve decided to no longer update Thrifty Threads, but we will keep the blog live. Each of us has evolved and grown over the last (nearly) four years, and we can’t thank you enough for being a part of our lives.

Our first posts were about Black Friday in 2009, and we’ve loved sharing our thrifty shopping adventures over the years. Personally, I still refer to outfit posts to remember the different ways I wore pieces from my closet.

We’ve all experimented with different ways to wear clothing — like when Shannon and I participated in the 30×30 challenge — and our sartorial tastes have certainly evolved from fresh-out-of-college to a little more refined late-20s look.

Since we started, Shannon and Jenny have migrated to New York City, and Katy moved back to Atlanta from Washington, D.C. Each of us has changed jobs and moved at least once. And Kristen and Katy both got married.

If you’re just stumbling upon this blog, we have 357 posts since Nov. 27, 2009 — most of which relate to affordable clothing and thrift store tips and finds — and we hope you enjoy them.

Thank you so much for being a part of Thrifty Threads, and happy thrifting!

    I am sad to read this, but I’m really glad you’re leaving the blog up. It’s been a real resource for me as I transitioned from college to my first “big girl” job. It’s also inspire me to get more into thrifting! Thanks for what you’ve all written over the past four years!

    I love thrifting, and your blog really gave me some inspiration and tips for both career and play. Sad to see it ending, but super glad that everyone seems to have moved on to bigger and better things!!!
