thrifty love: a new kind of gift exchange

It's no secret that I have a love for thrifting. If I have a few moments without the boys in tow,
I like to sneak away to find some little treasure. Which tends to drive my husband batty,
but I'm not a hoarder, I swear.

One day while I was wandering the aisles of my favorite Goodwill, I thought about how 
FUN it would be to have a bloggy gift exchange centered around the love of thrift.
I talked to a few of my favorite ladies and they were excited, too.
And we want you to join us!
so what is this thrifty love gift exchange all about?
a fun new way to get to know some fantastic bloggers who share a love for thrifting!
get paired up, hit the thrift shop for that perfect little treasure, and send it to your new bff.
if you are interested in participating (and I know you are), here's what you need to know:
1. send an email to me at punkpumpkinpeanut {at} gmail {dot} com by july 5
2. include a link to your blog and a mailing address (only to be shared with your match up!)

you'll get your match no later than july 10. 
at that point you can get to know your new blog buddy and set to thrifting!
spending limit is $10, which is like lottery winnings at the right shop.
all packages should be in the mail no later than july 25.
if it turns out you can't participate, please let me know by july 20 so we can set your match up with another buddy!
open to u.s. residents only this go 'round.
(BUT PLEASE, if you think you can't do it, don't sign up. It's kind of a big bummer when you are so looking forward to receiving your goods, and nothing ever comes.)

then get your blog posts ready with a full report of your thrifty love for a huge blog link up on august 6
hosted by hannahdaniellesarahjami, stephanieheatheresther and carina!
