I’m feeling generous today. So generous in fact, that I’m willing to divulge one of my secret thrifting spots in Southern Maine. It’s a tiny, two-floor thrift shop that, on a good day, has been home to some of the best vintage and consigned pieces I’ve ever found. Here’s what I got on a recent trip.
