Talking trash on Monday morning may be far too easy to do for some people. But, we’re not here to make disparaging remarks about the Gamecocks or Tigers, to belittle any political figure or even pass along the latest gossip about our favorite celebs. We’re talking trash – literally items that are thrown away by a staggering 87% of the population.

This weekend, while thousands of people were beating the heat in pools and battling traffic to make the most of weekend sales at department stores, Kira was at Stepping Stones Thrift Store buying other peoples’ trash.

Kira arrived at Stepping Stones Thrift Store at 2 p.m. on Saturday and was pleasantly surprised by the layout and selection. She found three pieces to add to wardrobe and spent only $4.00.

First Kira chose a Faded Glory blue and white long sleeve pinstripe blouse. The classic style is ideal for her to wear to work with black or navy belted dress pants. It can be worn alone while the weather is still warm and layered for year-round wear.

Kira next found Riders light wash denim in a hard-to-find long length Versatile, comfortable and easy to wear, .they’ll go everywhere Kira’s active lifestyle takes her. She’ll wear them to work on ‘casual Fridays,’ and on weekends spent with her three young children.

An adorable blue chambray shirt embroidered with teddy bears showed up, catching Kira’s attention. It was a perfect fit and simply too cute to resist. In like-new condition, it appears never to have been worn.

We can all learn a valuable lesson about trash. What one person cannot use or doesn’t want can create a fashion find for another. The next time you clean out your closet, take your trash bags to the nearest thrift shop rather than the dumpster. And the next time you are near a Stepping Stones Thrift Store, stop in and look around. You just might find the best trash in town!

Stepping Stones Ministry, Inc. is a mission of Elmwood Avenue Church of God at 1427 Elmwood Avenue in Columbia. Stepping Stones Thrift Stores are located at 6001 Two Notch Road in Columbia and 1916 Augusta Road, in West Columbia.

As always, maximize your style and minimize your spending~
