Thrift Shop Addict

My idea for this project is to illustrate the words 'Thrift Shop Addict' to go on a tote bag. The reason for this is I'm addicted to thrift shops, I seriously can't walk past one without going in! I also love bags...

I did a search for thrift store signs to help with lettering styles:

Some of the words on my brainstorming list:

bargain, bric a brac, books, scarfs, woolly jumper, felting, wool, old ladies, knitting needles, CDs, ornaments, funny mugs, toys, artificial flowers, funky, girly, upcycling, sewing, style, vintage, lace, lampshades, groovy!

I also got some ideas for phrases to possibly incorporate into the design:

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Thank you for your donation

My outfit cost less than a coffee

New 2 You

Come out of the closet!

I could put these words around the design, onto a 'mug' or 't-shirt' or jumper, within the design?

I like the way the patterns wrap around this lettering:
