Oh you guys! I’m so glad it’s Thrift Score Thursday again because I have a backlog of recent thrift finds to share with you! I’m pacing myself, however, since these things tend to come and go in spurts. Fantastic luck for a few weeks, then weeks and weeks of nothing but creepy clowns and Pilgrims…
Two weeks ago I shared an Instagram peek at an enormous gold Greek goddess bust I found…
She’s very nearly life-sized and quite imposing! I wasn’t quite sure about the purchase initially, but I remembered this fantastic thrift makeover from Refound Vintage (featured on Thrift Score Thursday 66) and knew I would regret leaving her behind.
While I don’t typically alter my thrift finds all that much, I decided that she really needed a coat of white paint to work in the way I envisioned…
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a bust once found MUST be in want of a necklace adornment…
Such a cool and classy lady!
Color me jealous of these incredible acrylic lamps Britt (Instagram: bbkingery) scored at a yard sale! I’ve had lamps on the brain lately but haven’t had great luck at the thrift store (it’s a sore subject; passed up on a lamp I regretted and it wasn’t there when I went back), so I’ll live vicariously through her finds!
A wooden rhino is another thing on my thrifting wish list! Sandra (Instagram: vintaushop) was lucky enough to stumble across this guy… Must. Find. One.
(And name him Harold.)
How sweet is this vintage globe makeover shared by Leila (Instagram: leiloutadesigns)? Just darling! I know I’ve passed up on a few globes that weren’t in great shape or just weren’t anything particularly special on their own – such a great idea to give it a gorgeous floral redesign!
Finally, I have to shout out Emily’s fab find! (Find her on Instagram: watassa) She spotted four of these wicker chairs at Goodwill for $75 and had one of those sixth-sense moments… And boy did it pay off! A little research revealed that they were designed and produced by Tito Agnoli from 1960-1969 and are quite collectible (and valuable)!
I absolutely love hearing stories like that!
This is exactly what sends me back to the thrift store and browsing Craigslist again and again – you simply never know what treasures you might find in someone else’s trash…
