It’s #thriftscorethursday once more and I’m enjoying our Thursday tradition more than ever! Since opening up Thrift Score Thursday to guest hosts last week, we had an unbelievably awesome response and I’m just so excited about this new twist.
Our guest host today is Anna from Le Crafteur and – get this – she is actually the manager of a thrift store, St. Margaret’s Thrift Shop! Trisha and I came up with some burning questions we wanted to ask her about managing a thrift store, so be sure to pop over to her blog after this for the fun Q & A session!
Just now finding out about the marvelousness that is #thriftscorethursday?
Simply share a picture of any recent thrifty find on Instagram or Twitter (or both!) 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, Trisha from Black and White Obsession and I will pick a favorite thrift score or two to feature! So please note that by linking up with #thriftscorethursday, you are giving us permission to share your finds via social media or on our blogs.
One of the things I love about #thriftscorethursday is that it allows me to virtually “meet” so many awesome and talented people! I’m now completely obsessed with Jenny’s gorgeous blog and Instagram (Mikasa Su Casa, Instagram: mikasasucasa) and I think you will be too! She shares lovely vignettes like this of her thrifted treasures… I fell in love with this perfectly sweet paint by numbers artwork! But isn’t the way Jenny styled the shot divine as well?
See the painting in her daughter’s room makeover here!
Rachel (Instagram: creationsbyrachelw) used these vintage thrifted mugs to create a beautiful herb garden planter! Isn’t this a wonderful idea?
Sometimes, there are days where you find one fantastic thing out thrift shopping. And sometimes, you come home with the mother lode of thrift score hauls… Like Jenn from Suite22 Antiques (Instagram: suite22antiques – another Instagram account you definitely want to follow!) Owls and rusty hardware – what’s not to love?
I finally found it.
My personal secondhand holy grail…
Are you sensing what’s about to happen here?
I just recently found out about and joined several local “online garage sale” Facebook groups (you can usually find these by typing in some local towns and the words “garage sale” in the Facebook search bar). Late last Wednesday night, this vintage Underwood typewriter popped up in my Facebook news feed in the town next door for just $30 and I commented to claim it as quickly as I could! Bryan kindly dropped by to pick it up for me while I was at work (and I may or may not have texted him multiple times beforehand to make sure he remembered).
I have no idea whether or not this typewriter works or could work, but I’ll be doing some reading up on it soon! I did do a little research on this typewriter, and apparently portable Underwood Champion typewriters with a carrying case like this one date to the 1930’s.
I love it so much and it just photographs beautifully! I couldn’t stop snapping photos 🙂
So what about you? Did you score anything awesome recently? We’d love to see!
