beans in a can is a photoblog featuring thrift and vintage finds throughout the United States. After moving to Boston in 2010, I saw a need for an online resource for thrifters and created “beans in a can” for frugal folks who want to express their personal style on a budget or add a special and unique touch to their home. Since moving from Boston, I have expanded the blog to other cities. I hope you enjoy exploring the country through thrift stores with me!
