Like anything, it takes practice. Since starting this blog I've learned quite a bit about what works for me and what doesn't. I also spend a lot of time shopping. Sometimes I walk out with the haul of the century and sometimes I find nothing.
When I hit a shop I devote at least an hour. I collect things as I go and make the final decision at the end. Yes, I have a 'route'. Books, home goods, clothes then shoes.
This is a typical cart for me. Of this I found five treasures - a success. I will show you my finds tomorrow.
