Today is a day of celebration. I'm very excited to announce the first ever Thrift Score Thursday!
I've combined forces with two of my best blogging buddies--Brynne from The Gathered Home, and Trisha D. from Black and White Obsession--and created a mass celebration of all things thrifty. And guess what? YOU'RE INVITED! Every Thursday, The Gathered Home, Black and White Obsession, & Rental Revival are teaming up to bring you #thriftscorethursday - an exciting new blog series where YOU get to share your awesome thrift store finds with US!
If you love thrift stores, finding awesome treasures, bragging about your finds with your friends, and then taking photos of all of those secondhand steals, this is for you. If you love those wacky items lurking in the back of the thrift store shelves, and you just have to show someone else out there, this is for you too. Even if you just love perusing everyone else's thrifty finds, you're gonna love this weekly series!
Here's how it works. Get your hashtag on. You post photos of your thrift store finds on Instagram or Twitter. Your finds can be big or small, comical or cute, old or new... we're just looking for some thrift store goodness here! When you post your photo, add the hashtag #thriftscorethursday (you can even add this hashtag to an existing photo). After we're done drooling or giggling over your thrift scores, every week, Brynne, Trisha and I will share our favorites with our readers!
Your thrift score doesn't have to be epic or mind-blowing. The other day I saw a mug that said "Don't trust anyone under 30." Did I buy it? No, I have way too many mugs. But you can bet yer boots I posted that find on Instagram! That's what we're talking about here, people. Hilarious mugs that happen to be ironic because you happen to be under 30 yourself. If you do happen to find the most glorious couch, by all means, we want to see that too! Just share that find with #thriftscorethursday and we will be all up in your business, drooling over those thrifty scores.
Speaking of thrifty scores, today marks our first Thrift Score Thursday, so Brynne, Trisha and I are kicking it off with our own finds! Enter: the best credenza of all time.
I found that lady for $40. She still needs some TLC, as is seen by the worn out finish and scratch marks. But don't you just love that little starburst detail (and the Paint by Numbers painting I did, and the gallery wall, and the record player, and the reeeally old-school television that I never use...)?!
My thrift score find can also be found on Instagram! Follow me there to see my fancy cell phone shot, or to doubly make sure I notice your awesome #thriftscorethursday finds! Don't forget to follow my co-hosts, Brynne (Facebook + Twitter) and Trisha (Facebook + Twitter + Instagram). And be sure to check out their awesome thrift scores of the week by clicking on the banners below. Can't wait to see what you got! (By sharing with #thriftscorethursday, you are giving us permission to share your finds via social media or on our individual blogs. Just putting that out there!)
