Hello, greetings, salutations, and welcome to #thriftscorethursday week 12! Trisha, Brynne and I have been having a great time seeing your thrifty finds on Instagram and Twitter for the past three months. New to Thrift Score Thursday? Well an extra-double "welcome" to you! Here are some guidelines to help you get started.
1. Take a photo of something you see or purchased at a thrift store, consignment shop, garage sale, Craigslist, or anywhere else secondhand.
2. Post your photo on Instagram and/or Twitter, any day of the week!
3. On your photo post, include the hashtag #thriftscorethursday.
4. Each Thursday morning, your hosts The Gathered Home and Black and White Obsession and I will share our favorites of the week! This means you should be posting photos throughout the week, so we can gather up our favorites on Wednesday night to share on Thursday.
Don't forget, you can share any and all thrifty finds, whether they are gorgeous or goofy. Sometimes we don't actually purchase the thrift scores we share, other times we do. We just want to see what you see when you make your thrifting excursions. Because there's nothing better than thrifting except more thrifting.
Okay, I get you. It's been a long week. I feel it too. I think we're in need of some inspiration, motivation... maybe a musical pep talk? I'M ON IT.
Let's get down to business
To complete... our home
Do we need a table?
Or perhaps... a globe!
There's the saddest couch I ever met
But you can bet before I'm through...
Thrift Store, I'll... score a find... out of you!
Boom. Now I'm ready to get down to business, if you know what I'm saying.
My first favorite find (alliteration!) is from @betty8701, who blogs at See Betty. She found this super cute Michigan collector's plate for $1 at a roadside sale! The main reason why I love it is because it gives me hope that one day I can find an Ohio one so I can show off my love for my home state. Also because look at those old timey car illustrations. So cute. I wanna drive one.
Thanks for sharing, Betty! I also love your placemats!
Next up, yes, I know, another mid-century vintage chair. Dudes. I'm obsessed with vintage chairs. I want to have a room one day where I just have a bunch of vintage chairs, all mismatched and scattered around like a maze. Wouldn't that be a fun place to play The Ground is Lava? Anyway, check out this #thriftscorethursday share from @tsfinds:
Best part? IT SWIVELS. Be still my heart. Turena had to let this one go, sadly. Thanks for sharing your find, Turena, and thanks for participating in #thriftscorethursday almost since the beginning!
Now it's time for my #thriftscorethursday find for week 12. Since I'm still dealing with unpacking, I'm going to share with you one of my recent ridiculously comical finds that I definitely did NOT purchase. Mainly I just want an excuse to put a picture of this kitten kettle on my blog.
I mean... There are so many things to mention here. First of all, cute little kitty on a tea kettle. Secondly, the knob is a ball of yarn. Oy. Third... $7.00 is a little overpriced, don't you agree?! Geez, Goodwill. I expect better of you.
The good news is, I am in need of some dishes and other items around the house, so I will be on the thrifting hunt for the perfect set. That kind of thing excites me.
Looking for more thrifty finds? You can look at all the Thrift Score Thursday archives here, follow me on Instagram, or check out the #thriftscorethursday hashtag on Instagram or Twitter! Also be sure to check out my co-hosts, Brynne and Trisha, for their featured finds this week! I'm sure theirs are a lot more chic than mine...
