I did not strike out at the thrift store this week!
How’s that for a #thriftscorethursday opening line? After many fruitless treks to the thrift store, I finally spotted a few things worth taking home, and the best part is that it was 50% off day at Goodwill!
Actually, if I had known that ahead of time, I probably would have stayed home since it can get pretty cutthroat during sale days at the thrift store! And the shelves were pretty well picked over by the time I stopped by. Luckily, I spotted the gleam of brass behind a few other objects…
What, you don’t have a brass peppermill just chilling on your mantel with a collection of vintage books? So weird.
It has these really great engraved designs on it, as well as “Atlas Pepper Mill Imports Made in Greece”, which proved very useful in discovering that my little 99 cent purchase retails for $76 online! (Although, affiliate link, you can snag it on Amazon for just $47.15)
While it makes for a lovely knickknack, I was also happy to hear that it’s high-quality and very functional! Expect to see this piece starring in my kitchen as soon as I get around to tackling that room… oh, maybe in 2020?
Ready for this week’s #thriftscorethursday features?
I fell so hard for this gorgeous silhouette gallery wall shared by Maggie from Maggie Overby Studios (Instagram: maggieoverbystudios)! She’s collected these silhouettes over time from flea markets and thrift stores in Germany – just incredible!
I am obsessed with this collection of plates from Emily from The Anatomy of Design (Instagram: anatomyofdesign)! The coral, navy, cream and gold are such a heavenly color combination! And this photo is impeccable!
This thrifted candlestick makeover from Kris at Driven by Decor (Instagram: drivenbydecor) is divine. So elegant and modern with just a few coats of black paint! Doesn’t this make you want to coat everything in matte black?
Okay, are you ready to have your mind blown by this last feature? Prepare to pick you jaw up off the floor…
Pam from Simple Details (Instagram: pamsimpledetails) shared THE thrift score of the year – this enormous, fantastic, drool-worthy mirror she found on Craigslist! Are you following Pam yet? If not, hurry to go do so! She is fabulous!
