Happy Thrift Score Thursday!
If you are new here, let me explain just what #thriftscorethursday is. 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! And we love it when you tag your friends to play along, too!
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.
Now, you know I love thrifting or I wouldn’t be hosting this weekly gig, now would I? I’ve recently reached out to some friends to help me with my finds for Sweet Clover since I’ve been busy, snowed in, and just don’t want to spend time out hunting sometimes…. it happens! So this find came to me from a friend, along with a few other things. She found me some great pieces, and this vintage Underwood typewriter was my favorite of the bunch.
Isn’t it a beauty! It brings back memories… I am so old that I recall my mom helping me do all f my college applications on a typewriter. It wasn’t one this old, but every time I see a type writer, that’s what I think of! And white out. Oh the white out! These young whipper snappers don’t know how easy they have it. 😉
Now for my features…
Shannon found these stacks of books in my favorite colors and an awesome crochet bedspread and then she staged them so beautifully for this shot.
You can find Shannon on instagram here.
And finally, the magic of the unicorn gets me every time, but this one’s a needlepoint unicorn and such a beauty! Jami found this piece and will be using it in
my her daughter’s bedroom.
You can find Jami on instagram here.
That’s it for my features this week- be sure to visit my cohosts to see their finds and features as well by clicking on the images below.
That’s it! I’ll be back next week with another find…. until then, happy hunting!
