I LOVE this concept! When it comes to animals, local rescues hold a special place in my heart. Thanks to local rescues, I have my two dogs Wrigley, and George. Wrigley was rescued by Another Chance for Animals where I adopted her, and George was rescued by It Takes a Village. So I'm very thankful to local rescues for the work they do in our community. Plus while we all know, Kat Mykals is the QUEEN of thrifty finds, I do enjoy thrift stores, and love a good deal (I wish I was as good at finding deals as Kat is though, maybe she can teach us her ways?). Either way, this sounds like a win/win. It's a great way for items that would otherwise be taking up space in someone's home to go onto a new life and help local rescues at the same time, and it's a good way to score a good deal for a good cause. I can't wait to stop in.
