“Shop with Pippa” is about finding good deals, whether they be from a Thrift Store, Dollar Store, Department Store or Garage Sale, then incorporating your newest finds with things you already have. You can develop a signature style with little money yet lots of taste.
This blog is a collaborative effort! I, Pippa, do the shopping and the girls model the clothing (and sometimes my son).
As my youngest daughter recently told me she loved her clothes from the thrift store because “No one can copy my style”!
2 words that I try to incorporate on a daily basis into our lives are repurposed and upcycling.
“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
Repurposed: to give a new purpose or use to / Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value.
This concept is something that I strongly believe in! Second-hand items are a form of recyling, we also donate to thrift stores on a consistent basis. I have also repurposed a few other things in my life:
I have a Repurposed husband! I have found a treasure in my husband Bryan. He is my biggest supporter and my best friend!
(plus he is proud of me and the ways that I have found to save money!)
I have a Repurposed home! After looking at homes for several years, we decided to go with an older home that had the “bones” we were looking for and was very expensive to recreate in a new home. Every single inch was repainted and new lights installed (old lights were either donated to charity or Repurposed in another home).
I have a Repurposed dog! This 4 year old little guy joined our home a few weeks ago. The lady who owned him passed away several months ago and the husband felt like the dog needed to be in an active yet loving home. I couldn’t ask for a more perfect dog and we are growing to love him more and more each day!
I even have a Repurposed car!
I am truly blessed and thank you for taking the time to visit “Shop with Pippa”.
