Hello my friends! How has your week been, thrifting and otherwise?
As I mentioned in Monday’s post, summer kicks off the season of Craigslisting for us over here, so our days this week have been full of finding and hauling – I’m looking forward to sharing more soon!
Last week was our inaugural edition of #dearTST, but this week we’re back to our normal features. We’d love to see, admire, and feature YOUR thrift finds…
Simply post a pic of any recent thrift find on Instagram or Twitter 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, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, Corinna from For My Love Of and I (plus a special weekly guest host!) will pick a few favorite thrift scores 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.
After taking the week off features last week, there were so many goodies waiting for me in the #thriftscorethursday feed that I couldn’t help but squeeze in a few more features today…
Rachel (Instagram: at_home_in_maywood) has been sharing some incredible finds lately, but I think my favorite is this vintage type set drawer she’s repurposing to display gems and minerals! I love it!
Carol (Instagram: thespectaclednewt) definitely knows how to show off her finds – every last detail of this vignette is just perfection!
I can’t tell you how much I LOVE this clock makeover shared by Jodi (Instagram: twineandvines) – so vivacious, so fun!
Finally, I just have to shout out Shavonda’s find because she’s been looking so intently and patiently for it for so long… A gorgeous black Eames style lounge chair! (Blog: SG Style, Instagram: sgardnerstyle)
It’s always the best when you find that one “white whale” thrifting piece!
I’ll make a little confession to you: I never go to garage sales. Bryan doesn’t enjoy vintage and thrift shopping with me (crazy, I know!) and I don’t like going alone, so that’s a whole branch of thrifting that I haven’t really explored.
I was lucky enough to spend a day visiting garage and estate sales with sweet friend from church the other day though, and had a blast! I didn’t find anything until the last sale we visited, but these adorable cat figurines immediately stole my heart…
I believe they are antique Staffordshire cats – I was so surprised to find a similar pair online dated to the 1880’s!
I am completely in love with their sweet little faces and gilded details! You might have spotted them on Instagram the other day, but I had fun giving them their own little #thriftscorethursday photo shoot yesterday.
How could I not love their little gold polka dots and crackled finish?
And as a confirmed crazy cat lady, finding a pair of the more rare Staffordshire cats rather than the traditional dogs was just absolutely perfect!
So excited to welcome Jess from Domicile 37 as our guest host this week!
This lovely lady has an incredible sense of design and shares wonderful decorating ideas on a budget – I know you’ll enjoy following her blog & Instagram!
Be sure to check out the finds and features from Cassie, Corinna & Trisha!
P.S. Are you a blogger who also love thrifty finds? We’d love to have you join us for a week of Thrift Score Thursday! If you’re interested, send me a message!
