Thrifting near and far

Yesterday Lise + Katina headed north to do a little thrift shopping. We woke up early, drove straight to Bellingham, and hit every shop we could on our way back down south. We thought we would share a few pictures from our trip:

Shopping Day

Want to know what we’re busy doing almost every weekend? Shopping at estate sales, of course!

Our selections for Lise + Katina are chosen discerningly at a wide variety of sources to ensure that we see the full range of what’s out there! However, estate sales are our favorite places to find the best quality vintages loves (with the best stories). This is where we most often stumble upon true gems that have been meticulously stored or cared for over decades by owners who loved them just as much as we know their new owners will!

Here is a little peek into what this weekend was like for us:
