Meeting Mr. Goodwill Hunting June 23, 2012

20120623-094001.jpg
Hello from Atlanta!,
I’m back at the airport, after a mind boggling three days here! My brain is spilling new information. It’s coming out of my ears! Looks a little strange!

One of the high points of the Haven conference, was meeting Rashon Caraway, better known as Mr. Goodwill Hunting. Charm spillith over! (“spillith”: new word)

While I had visited his blog before, I’m now a convert! Not only is he a thrift shopping expert, his warmth, humor and authentic charm is infectious!

He showed us some of his thrift shop design make-overs, and gave us lots of tips for successful thrift shopping.

Always have these essentials with you, when shopping:
– Tape measure
– Hand sanitizer! Self explanatory.
– Smart phone, for on the spot research
– Truck/van
– Dressed down attire. ( How are you going to get a mark down, if you look like a million bucks?)

You can’t help but love this guy! Do you follow Rashan? If not, be sure to check him out! You’re in for a treat!

Cheers!,
Barbara

    Absolutely love Rashon. What else did you learn about (hand sanitizer — great tip)?

    Hey Barbara–wasn’t Rashon a hoot? I’m so glad I met you at Haven and had a little time to hang out–not nearly enough. My head is spinning, too, with ideas. I hardly know where to start.
