It’s time for #thriftscorethursday !
New here? Let me explain!
We want you to participate! Hit up your local thrift stores, craigslist, yard sales, estate sales, side of the road, anything! Thrifty doesn’t necessarily mean from a thrift store. We want to see your good deals, wacky finds and treasures.
Don’t feel like you need to save those finds for Thursdays! Yes, features are shared on our blogs and Instagram on Thursdays, but we’re all checking in on (and using!) the hashtag all week long. So, when you see/find it, feel free to share it!
Each week, Trisha from Black and White Obsession, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, Corinna from For My Love Of, Brynne from The Gathered Home and a weekly guest co-host will pick a favorite thrift score or two to feature! So please note that by linking up with#thriftscorethursday, you are giving us permission to share your finds via social media or on our blogs.
This week we have TST rock star Paula from Sweet Pea. She has some mad DIY skills to go along with her thrifting skills.
So this week I have a rather silly find. A couple weeks ago I was feeling overwhelmed with so much… I was gearing up for the Sweet Clover sale and the camp my kids were supposed to attend that week cancelled on me. So I was working every day that week with the kids, or shuffling them around with friends who volunteered to help me. By Friday night that week I was worn out, and asked Chris if he would take the kids out for the evening to do something so I could just have a quiet night at home. He took them out to dinner and mini golf; meanwhile back at home, I fell asleep at 9 pm. True story. Anyhow, Chris won the round of mini golf that they played and scored a couple holes in one. The next morning I headed out to yard sales and Emmy asked if she could join me…. so we ventured out together and at a local church yard sale we discovered this little trophy for 25 cents. The best part about it is what it says on the plate. We brought it home and Emmy presented it to Chris with a hearty congratulations.
I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did when I was writing this post. Brings back memories!
Now let’s check out some awesome features!
First of all, this brass trunk table Jennifer from Dimples & Tangles scored… I die. It’s so amazing!
I am always one for a fab colorful Mexican blanket! I have a few in my stash. Check out this one (and that gray one!) that Jess of Bright Green Door scored! Sidenote- I saw one in a local antique shop I like to go to for $65 yesterday. Crazy.You can find Jess on instagram here.
Love Recycled always has amazing finds…. makes me want to go thrifting in Florida. Just look at this pair of chairs!
You can find her on instagram here.
Now make sure you check out my cohosts to see what they’ve found and featured this week!
And one more thing…. don’t forget to use #DearTST if you find something thrifty and you are stumped with what do do with it- We are here to help!
And now get out there and hit those yard sales and thrift shops while people are busy cleaning out their garages…. go get the good stuff while it lasts! See you next week for another thrift score Thursday. Until then, happy hunting.
