Last weekend, Miss Frugal and I headed to the Festival of Thrift in Darlington for a bit of girly time while the men of the house watched the football.
If you’ve haven’t had the pleasure of visiting the Festival of Thrift before then I strongly recommend trying to get there next year because we had an amazing day! The first Festival took place in 2013 and welcomed 27,000 visitors, and last year which was our first year visiting saw a massive 40,000 visitors visiting. I’ve no idea how many went this year but it felt bigger than last year so I’m guessing even more than last year!
Here’s what the website itself says about the festival:
The Festival of Thrift is a cultural celebration for the people of the North East, the UK and beyond, where people could find the fun in learning how to reuse, recycle and upcycle, saving both money and benefiting the environment.
I’m not going to tell you about our day because it was genuinely one of the most fun days I’ve had in a long time and I think my photos probably show it better than I could say in words…
I was so inspired by the day and we both learned a lot about being thrifty and frugal – I can’t wait for next year’s festival already!
