Your Instagram host for the week of August 9, 2020
You know that feeling when you score a great deal and you want to share it with everyone you know? That’s how a thrifter feels all the time. In 2009, I created Dina’s Days as a place to share my love for thrift stores, flea markets, and any place that requires digging through bins to find a treasure. Dina’s Days not only started as a way to share my secondhand finds with the world, but also to start a critical conversation about the cost, creative, and environmental benefits of secondhand shopping.
Today, nearly 95% of my wardrobe is secondhand. I believe in thrifting because it’s affordable, great for the environment, and promotes individuality and creativity. My personal style is ever changing with each trip to the thrift store. I do however, have Blanche Devereaux tendencies and can’t resist a fully beaded vintage dress.
I am regular contributor for several blogs, including Goodwill Akron and Goodwill of Greater Cleveland. I live in my beloved hometown of Akron, Ohio with my husband, a jazz guitarist and our daughter. We love to travel and explore our city’s beautiful parks.
