I was putting up flyers for the Frugal Fe$tival last weekend when I noticed two thrift stores on Sherman Way in Canoga Park had gone out of business. I was just west of Owensmouth in a cluster of second hand and discount shops. To my shock Out of the Closest was a discount a furniture store and Aaardvarks Odd Ark was dark. If anything, in a recession thrift stores should be thriving! http://www.bargainbabe.com
Is it back to school season already? I’m hearing rumblings that retailers are gearing up for the annual spending spree so I called Mary, who writes The Recessionista fashion blog. She just outfitted her neice and nephew for fall. We talked about what is worth splurging for, where to go low-budget, and what everybody is going to be wearing when the first bell rings. http://www.bargainbabe.com
