Granny-Downs: hand-me-downs that are obtained from Granny (quite often given to her by other people); similar to items the average person would find in a thrift store; vintage clothing and accessories.

Ever since I was a little girl my Granny would always have a bag full of second-hand clothing that she wanted to give me. Back then, I didn’t want someone else’s “unwanted” clothing, but, since I was too scared to tell Granny no, I grudgingly took them home anyway. Today, she still gives me “pre-owned” clothes, but, since I’m into vintage, I gladly take them home. The only thing is they’re rarely my correct size, but, no worries, that’s what a seamstresses is for!

In addition to clothing, Granny occasionally gives me some of her personal items: broaches, scarves, & handbags. I treasure those items the most, because I’ve always wanted to start a tradition of passing down heirlooms to my children and children’s children.

Now that you know what “Granny-Downs” are, you’ll be seeing them here and there on the blog. I’ll show you how I take “Granny-Downs” and turn them into cute outfits. This will kind of give you an idea of how to see potential in clothing when shopping in a thrift store. **G.I.G.**
