If I don’t share this quick, November will be over and I will have missed my chance entirely!!  Time flies, yet I apparently found plenty of time to thrift in October, kicking the month off with a thrift and theatre date, meeting up with Adina for Tuesday Night Thrift mid-month, and plenty more before/during/after.  What can I say?!  NOTHING.  I’m staying silent.
