Thrift Lunch began as a lark: I'd meet my friend Cara over the lunch hour to see what we might dig out of our favorite thrift spots, and then meander back to the office. It was part thrift adventure, part girlfriend time and it quickly grew into a beloved tradition. Over the years, "thrift lunches" equaled shoes and skirts and jackets and dresses and many, many vintage Coach bags.

Now, it's my little side project, a place where I can share my finds -- and some of Cara's, too -- with other girls who might, I hope, feel the same thrill shopping here as I do in thrifts everywhere.

Thrift Lunch would not be possible without the help and support of many friends, including:

Dana Damewood, the talented photographer who shoots our banners. Find more of her work at danadamewood.com.

Kat O'Connor, a stylist and ballet dancer who is also our model. Find her at Rain Salon in downtown Omaha.

Liz Noser, who drew our logos by hand out of her stylish Omaha home

Jackie Sterba, who contributes many amazing accessories, lots of encouragement, hand-mixed cocktails and her styling prowess to our photo shoots. 

Special thanks to Nite Owl for playing host to our very first photo shoot.
