Every week we feature a fun and/or educational activity you can try at home or in the classroom. This weekend you might be searching for the best back to school deals, but don't forget to check out your local thrift shops!

Find back to school treasures that can easily be refashioned in honor of National Thrift Shop Day on August 17. Vintage clothes, unique satchels and even retro tin lunch boxes are a few things you can give new life! Check out this thrift shop refashion from ReFashionista.
