Thrifty Furnishing with Sammy D.

Monday, August 15, 2011

Back in April we blogged about Sammy Davis, the cost-conscious fashionista from New York City. The stylist, writer, and thrifty shopper has proven herself to be a huge fan of the Salvation Army!
So, we thought it fitting to showcase her latest ‘Sal Val’ (Sammy lingo for Salvation Army Thrift Stores) post: Thrift Shopping Salvation Army for a Brooklyn Bedroom Part 1 and 2. Together with a friend on a furnishing deadline, Sammy shopped Manhattan’s massive Salvation Army clothing & furniture store for all of the bedroom essentials. They were able to find some amazing pieces! In the end, they successfully purchased the perfect dresser at a jaw-dropping price. Check out more photos here.

Get a good deal and lend a helping hand by visiting your local Salvation Army Family & Thrift stores today!
What’s even better than the price? Every dollar you spend benefits Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Centers nationwide. Click here to learn more.

Sammy Davis is on a mission for vintage.

In 2009 the young stylist and writer founded Sammy Davis Vintage to “make vintage fashion more accessible to the contemporary woman of New York City.” She’s traversed many trunk shows, flea markets, and second-hand stops to find just the right pieces for one-of-a-kind style.

Sammy regularly shares her shopping tips and styling tricks on her website sammydvintage.com. Her latest web video, “How to Mix Stripes in One Outfit,” was filmed on site at a Salvation Army Family Store in Manhattan, and she uses clothes from the store to create a look straight from New York’s runway.

Check out her video below. We hope it inspires you to get creative with the many fashion finds at your local Salvation Army Family & Thrift stores!
