Hello you guys! Happy #thriftscorethursday! How has your week been?
This week we have the lovely and sweet Jess from Bright Green Door as our guest host! From her blog introduction: “If the words vintage, DIY'ed, or the color gold inspire you, you're in the right place!” Um, yes – blogging soul-sisters! She just completed an incredible kitchen makeover – check out the final reveal right here.

This vintage card catalog that Kim from Reposhture (Instagram: reposhture) found was a total score at $30! I just love vintage card catalogs (who doesn’t?) and I’ve been lucky enough to find (and subsequently sell) a few myself. Fingers crossed there’s another one out there someday with my name on it!
Found an awesome vintage light fixture but you can’t actually hang it from your ceiling? Check out this brilliant idea from meganomarrow: suspend it in a vintage bird cage stand!
If you spotted these little brass pieces would you know what they are? I would have been stumped! Luckily Sandra (Instagram: lightglassandtrend) knew exactly what they are – vintage brass mineral holders! Stunning!
Finally, this is one #thriftscorethursday transformation that completely blew me away. Would you ever have believed this “before” desk could look so good?! Chelsea from Style Mutt (Instagram: chelsea_stylemutthome) worked her magic on it and it is amazing!
Are you ready for another round of “Things I Didn’t Buy at the Thrift Store”?
On my most recent trip I spotted tons of share-worthy things that sadly just didn’t make the cut to come home with me. I’m doing my best to only buy things that I either have a purpose/place for in my home or are just such incredible finds/deals it would hurt to leave them behind. Sadly, none of these exactly fit the bill.
This first piece was truly awesome – a vintage Underwood typewriter built into this adorable little desk. It was one of Goodwill’s auction pieces – I didn’t test myself by checking to see what the bids were on it so far, because I knew this was something I didn’t need to bring home. Someone else will get to enjoy this baby!
There were two of these little white metal faux-bamboo and yellow vinyl chairs, $10.50 each. I will admit, I was tempted. But the vinyl was cracked and ripped on one of the chairs and again, I had no purpose or place in mind for them.
This amber glass canister was so cool! It was $8.99, which isn’t terrible, but wasn’t cheap enough that I felt comfortable impulse-buying it.
This collection of blue and white pieces were really neat. I know some of my #thriftscorethursday friends are going to be jealous of these and think I’m crazy for leaving them behind! The big lidded jar was $15.99, the vase was $12.50 and the adorable watering can was $5.50…
This clock was really cool and I loved the organic tree-trunk shape. I didn’t care for the ornate style of the gold hands/clock numbers, so at first I toyed with the idea replacing them with something more modern. Sadly they they were covered in a thick coat of pour-over resin. At $15.99, this was another “catch and release.”
Lastly, check out this cheery (or make that “beery”) Christmas wreath I spotted a little while ago. On my next trip to the store, it was gone. (Sing it with me: “Said the night wind to the shepherd boy: ‘Do you beer what I beer?’ ”)
So let’s hear it! Should I have non-buyers remorse over some of these things? What would you have done?
