It's Raining English Thrift Blogs

I feel like I'm one lucky blogger and blog reader. The awesome Jumbles and Pompoms (don't you love that name?) began following Yard Sale Snoop this week. I'd never heard of Jumbles and Pompoms before, so I checked out her blog and thought it was terrific. I left a comment and noticed numerous comments with links for other thrifty house and home English blogs. They're all great.
I love the fact that people all over the world - from big cities to small towns - are united in their desire to find beautiful things at thrift stores and garage sales (or boot sales if you please).

Here are the links to a bunch of swell English blogs as well as another terrific American thrift blog which I wish I'd know about a long time ago: Bounty Huntress. That doesn't sound English at all - does it? Bounty Huntress is from Texas and has a thriftastic blog too. Do check it out. Thanks to my new followers Jumbles and Pompoms and Thriftstore Dolls. Welcome aboard!

Vintage, Pretty & Shabby

Bella's Country has a comprehensive of blogs many of which are English with a thrifting or crafters angle. do check them out. I'll be adding more of these wonderful blogs on my links as and when I have free time.
All the best,

Here's my homegirl Kate singing just for the thriftacular English bloggers. Who knew I was such a romantic?
