Good morning and happy Thrift Score Thursday my friends! How are things going in your world? Any good recent thrifting scores?
I’ve been simplifying things just a bit around here, as I’m trying to strip down my maximalist tendencies and stage the house for showings. Quite a few of the layers on our teak bar got packed away, but I just couldn’t quit two things – a brass animal figurine and my go-to stack of vintage books.
I found this 1960’s Hammond World Atlas at a Salvation Army a few months ago and thought it made such a great addition to two of my other favorite vintage books (also thrifted)!
Don’t even get me started about gold lettering… Why don’t we make books this pretty anymore?!
Consider this your friendly reminder to always take a quick peek in the book section for anything interesting!
Earth Day was last Friday, so please let me just take a moment to give you all a huge round of applause…
Every find in the #thriftscorethursday feed has been given a second chance and I’m so proud of you guys for recognizing the potential in other’s castaways and helping give them new life and purpose! Just think of how many thousands of finds have been potentially saved from landfills (I’ll let you know: 9800 #thriftscorethursday rescues so far!) because YOU have the vision and the heart to appreciate them!
Seriously, to all my Thrift Score Thursday peeps: You rock! And thank you.
Here are this week’s features, hand-picked from the #thriftscorethursday feed on Instagram. You guys killed it, as always!
I love a good vintage seascape and I’m really crushing on the moody waves of this one @acquiredlovelies found for just $7 at Goodwill!
Check out this stunning RS Associates teak nightstand @mellabobella scored for just $10 on Kijiji and refinished herself! If that’s not awesome enough, the lamp was also a Kijiji find and the art (mmm, that blue frame!) came from a thrift store. I love it all!
Finally, here’s some perfect gathered style headed you way from Holly (@hollyyoung77). I spy too many treasures to count (hello, darling vintage camera collection!), but most of all I’m just totally obsessed with her shelf styling acumen. Take notes, friends! It’s the perfect eclectic mix.
Fellow thrift lovers, we’re putting out the call – share your thrift scores for a chance to be featured next week!
Simply post a picture of any recent thrifty find on Instagram using #thriftscorethursday!
- You can share any thrifty finds with us – whether they hail from a thrift store, Craigslist, estate sale, garage sale, side of the road, or apartment dumpster! The fun, the funny, the awesome, the odd – this hashtag party is open to all!
- Feel free to use #thriftscorethursday any day of the week! We’ll be keeping up with the hashtag all week long to find our favorites for the following Thursday.
- Each week, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, Corinna from A Designer At Home, Maggie from Maggie Overby Studios and I will pick a few favorite thrift scores to feature! So please understand that by linking up with #thriftscorethursday, you are giving us permission to share your finds via social media or on our blogs.
- Please note that we can only see photos shared by public accounts, so if you have a private Instagram account and we haven’t been showering your finds with love, it’s simply because we aren’t able to see them.
This week, we have Jessica from House Homemade joining us as a guest host!
I love Jessica’s eclectic, gathered style – check out her built-in bookcase styling in this post here for just a taste of what she can do! I’m excited to see her find this week! Check it out below:
Be sure to check out the finds and features from Cassie, Corinna & Maggie!
