Happy TST!!!! It’s time for some of my blog friends and I to show off our own and your own thrifty finds, and we are starting to get in the Christmas spirit around here!
If you aren’t sure what I am talking about, here are the details:
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 ProperCorinna 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.
And this week we have a special guest host… Amber from Restless Arrow is also sharing her finds and features today! Be sure to head to her blog to check it out! (And check out her beautiful Christmas home tour while you are there!)
Before I get to my features, I have an announcement!!!! Next Thursday December 18th, we will be featuring your thrifted CHRISTMAS or HOLIDAY finds!!!! So make sure you keep on hashtagging your thrifty finds with #thirftscorethursday, and be sure to include those holiday finds!
First up for features, I adore this wall hanging that Ashley from Bigger than the Three of Us found. It would look awesome in my guest room, ya know, in case you ever tire of it, Ashley.
Head over here to find Ashley on Instagram!
How fantabulous is this vintage mail truck from Vanessa at Tried and True?!?! LOVE it! She’s using it to hold Christmas cards!
You can find Vanessa on instagram here.
And I love this tree from Turena at TS Finds! I had a white one like it (but without the gilded touch!) with colorful birds that was a thriftscore as well, and it broke last year. SO SAD! But hey, I have all the birds, so maybe our trees are a match made in heaven!
You can find TSFinds on instagram here.
And now for my finds! If your name is Ali and you live in Cali…. NO PEEKING! Because my vintage find is a Christmas gift.
Ali is my bestie and soulmate, and the person I find shopping for the easiest. I think of her often and see things when I am out and about that make me think of her and smile. Usually by the time her birthday or Christmas rolls around, I have a stash of items I’ve collected for her. I found this awesome vintage Santa pitcher and these adorable mini santa mugs! You can’t really tell from the photo, but they are minis and SOOOOO cute! And I found the mugs and the pitcher on two separate occasions! And you might notice that brass swan in there, too. Ali loves swans, and when I found this guy I knew he had to be hers.
Ali just redid her kitchen last year, and she displays these on her white shelves and they look adorable! I can’t wait to see how she styles these guys, especially the winking Santa. He’s such a flirt.
And the mugs are adorable! It’s not easy to find a full set of four, so I was super excited to happen upon these.
Now be sure to visit all of my cohosts to see their finds and features, and remember to hashtag those finds and have your Christmas finds featured next week!
