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.
I adore the colors in this afghan Meg (Instagram: megknitshit) scored for $3 at the thrift store! I’m super jealous because I’ve been looking for something exactly like this lately – wouldn’t it be just perfect in the “Nautical Naturalist” guest room?
These Mid Century chairs Karrie (Instagram: makerofhome) found on Craigslist and then recovered with a Pendleton wool blanket are incredible! I love the shape of the walnut leg/arm combination! Get more details on them on her blog.
When Kim (Instagram: refound_vintage) said that this vase was an awful shade of pink when she found it at the thrift store, I could instantly picture said shade of pink (hello 80’s!) and I’ll admit – I knew I wouldn’t have seen the potential in it! A new coat of white paint is miraculous, isn’t it? Love your vision, Kim!
You already saw this thrift score in yesterday’s post, but I saved the closeups for today! I found this oak and brass ship’s wheel clock a few weeks ago for $8 at Goodwill and waffled a little over the price. (You guys, I know, I am so cheap. But I need to be, or I could spend a literal fortune on cool vintage finds.)
But once I saw the way the cool glass porthole window unlatched and lifted up from the clock face, I knew I had to take it home.
I wasn’t able to find the exact same clock online, but I did find this very similar one selling on Amazon for $230! (Affiliate link just in case you feel like buying a $230 clock today.) So after all, I don’t feel so bad about spending $7.99.
Let’s hear from you! What have you found recently? Share using #thriftscorethursday!
We’re welcoming back Maggie from Maggie Overby Studios as our guest host this week!
I can’t wait to see what she’s sharing! She’s moving back to the US from Germany soon, so I’m sure she’s enjoying some last-minute fabulous European thrifting!
Be sure to check out the finds and features from 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!
