It is week 5 of #thriftscorethursday and we’re still going strong! I just love seeing all of your awesome finds each week – it gives me a positive itch to run out to the thrift store and see if I have the same wonderful luck ;)
Simply snap a picture of any thrifty find or thrifted treasure and use #thriftscorethursday when you share on Twitter or Instagram!
– 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, we’ll 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.
First up is this awesome mid century chair Ashley (ashley_biggerthanthethreeofus) found at Goodwill for $20 – I can only imagine how gorgeous it will be reupholstered! It reminds me of something the fabulous Emily Henderson would do in navy blue velvet!
And how adorable would that chair be (envision it with me in a dark velvet or linen) with these clover-leaf carved end tables Turena (tsfinds) found? She didn’t have a place for them and had to pass them by… I want to swoop in and hoard them ;)
Lastly, I just can’t not post this gorgeous midcentury hutch Corinna Ashley (formyloveof) scored for $50 on Craigslist. #scoreoftheyear right here!
So there was a huge trend of thrifted furniture for last week’s Thrift Score Thursday, which is awesome, but it also makes me want to run out and scavenge ALL THE FURNITURE from my local thrift stores, which is not so awesome because I do not have anywhere to put all these fabulous things. So my #thriftscorethursday finds are much smaller and more collectable this week.
Are you picking up on a pattern here? I have a huge thing for printed/etched glassware. Especially if there is gold involved. But really I am just a total sucker for any glassware with a pattern… I blame my grandma who has a complete and probably exhaustive collection of Tom & Jerry, Flintstones, Loony Toons, and Winnie the Pooh jelly-jars-repurposed-as-drinking-glasses that us grandkids could choose from. (Do you guys remember those? They were the best!)
Someone gave me a very fancy set of drinking glasses for my wedding. And someone (ahem, the boy behind the blog) managed to break every single one but one of them in just a few short years. I quickly realized that glassware can be an expensive habit to maintain when you have a husband who manages to drop one at a rate of one or two per week… I was on the brink of converting to red Solo cup usage until I found that I could pick up glasses for $1 each (or cheaper) at the thrift store. AND they could be ridiculously cute! And… GOLD!!!
So now I have a cabinet full of mismatched vintagey glassware and I get to sip my ice water/juice/ginger ale/whiskey with style. As a bonus, Bryan hasn’t dropped a single glass in our new house, so my recently thrifted glassware has been safe thus far!
Is there a certain little home good that you just can’t resist at the thrift store? Do you love glassware with gold accents as much as I do?
