I find this incredibly hard to believe. Like as hard to believe as the conversation I had with Bryan last night where he told me that there are extremely smart people who believe that computers will take over the world by as early as 2035…
That’s how hard I find it to believe that our little hashtag party has been running for an entire year now!
Happy first birthday, Thrift Score Thursday! I forgot to get you a smash cake, or in fact any presents, however, my awesome cohosts and I did collaborate to put together a fun little giveaway for our awesome #thriftscorethursday participants…
We love and appreciate our incredible community of fellow thrift-lovers and we wanted to say thank-you for everything you’ve done to help us grow #thriftscorethursday over the past year! We’ll be giving away $50 PayPal cash to one lucky thrifter on Instagram – and you all know what incredible treasures that can buy in a thrifter’s world!
UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who entered! The giveaway is now over.
This week’s Features:
Kristin from The Best From Our Nest (Instagram: thebestfromournest) shared this adorable piece of art in her son’s nursery – she made a monogram wall plaque out of these vintage laundry bag pins she found in an antique store.
I bet you could have guess I would go crazy for the brass bunnies Jo (Instagram: simplepleasuresvintage) spotted on her local online yard sale group. Are you part of any in your area? Try searching Facebook for “online garage sale” or “online yard sale” + your town name – you can find some really neat things!
Tanya from Dans Le Lakehouse (Instagram: danslelakehouse) posted her absolutely stunning and drool-worthy collection of vintage Iitala glass candlesticks. Read more about her collection here on her blog.
The rules are that if you spot a box marked “Pottery Barn” at the thrift store, you have to look inside. (Hey, I don’t make the rules… Oh wait, I do.)
Inside, I found a little Christmas lights ball – the kind you would hang from a tree branch or from your porch. I thought it was cute but I couldn’t think of the perfect purpose for it. A sweet fellow thrifter saw me contemplating it and mentioned that there were several more the next aisle down. Cue me opening more boxes and finding this “big daddy” version – like 10” diameter big and super sparkly. I just couldn’t resist!
Sadly, I had to leave behind the other two smaller versions (you know, financial responsibility and all that). But I have huge plans for this one. I want to hang it in our guest bedroom (which I have never showed you here on the blog because it is completely undecorated) – I think it will make the sweetest reading light over the bed!
Okay – are you ready? Hop onto Instagram and share your awesome finds! Wishing you all the best of luck in the giveaway!
P.S. If you’re a blogger who loves thrifty finds too, we’d love to have you guest host a week of Thrift Score Thursday with us! Just send me a message!
