Does the idea of shopping for furniture at thrift stores and flea markets intimidate you?  Not sure which ones to go to? Have you always wanted someone to help you choose what to buy and what not to buy? Well this is for you!

Join us for a FUN day of thrifting with the Handy Chics around the Philadelphia area! We will hand select some of our favorite thrift stores and flea markets to go to and help you pick out furniture and other home decor items to revamp! We will help you decide what to buy and keep you from wasting money on junk!  In addition, we consult with you on steps needed to transform your piece from drab to fab!  And, you get an official Handy Chics tote with a few goodies inside!

As with any shopping trip, thrifting can be a hit or miss. We make no guarantees on attendees finding exactly what they are looking for. The fee covers us accompanying and consulting with attendees on purchases and how to transform them. 

After registering, attendees will receive further information on meet up location. You must have your own transportation so you can transport your own finds.  We will take a lunch break during the day and each person is responsible for purchasing their own lunch.

There are no refunds on registration so please make sure you are able to attend before registering.
