Does anyone love a thrift store more than I?

Friday, September 23, 2011

"Dang girl you're at the thrift store again!" I know that's what they say about me! Lol! But seriously, it's one of my things. My week is not complete without a stop to the thrift store, at least a quick stop. A great portion of our home contains thrift store decor as I like to call it. As well as some useful items and clothing.

Come on now, I know there are many of you out there like me that feel the same about a good thrift store. Right??? So what is it that I love about a thrift store you ask? (or maybe you didn't but I'll tell ya anyway)

• I love me some vintage and antique finds. Why do I yearn for those yesteryears?

• Unique cheap items that you can transform into something beautiful.

• It's like a treasure hunt, see if you'll find something you'll adore.

• Deals/bargains! You can find some great prices there! Because, well, the items are used. But here's how I look at it, though the item is used it's still in good condition, it still works, so why not save a small fortune.

• Thrift stores are good for our environment. Yep they keep things out of our landfills! Go thrift store!

I thought it'd be fun to share some of my thrift store treasures so I think I might make this a regular post. Maybe we could make it a link party for thrift store, yard sale, flea market finds ONLY! What do you say? Yea or nay? Would you link up? We could call it "This my friends, is what I love about the thrift store." lol!

Anyway here are just a couple of my thrift store finds to inspire you to get out there this weekend and find something thrifty!

In person these votives look old which is why I love them.

Ohhhh and look at this beauty! A Royal Typewriter in that oh so desireable color!

Complete with case!

Wouldn't a thrifty swap be fun? Get out there! Go find something!

Lets try this! I'd love a text link back if you link up.

  1. The Royal typewriter is a great score! I love the colour.

  2. Love that typewriter!! Great color too! I live right around the corner from a great thrift store and I'm ALWAYS over there -- especially when they do the 50% off entire store sales once a month!

  3. What a great find on that typewriter! And that color is amazing. Great job :)

  4. Great finds for sure and loveeee the typewriter. Thanks for sharing :D

  5. I love the look of typewriters, but I'd hate to have to lug one home from a store or yard sale.
    Our thriftstore has an Underwood right now, manual, at least 80 years old if not older. If only I had $100.

    So- what will you call your new link party?

    I will be back to share in a few weeks. Life is a bit hectic right now.

  6. Hi,
    There are a few of us crazies out there that just love thrift stores. The hunt, oh yes the hunt. I think that's what I love most. I have a turquoise typewriter like that and I love it. Linking up. Congrats on your new par-tee!

  7. Great idea...I love a good thrifty find. I'll link up too :) Laurel@chippingwithcharm
