What I Love About the Thrift Store {link party #16}

Friday, January 20, 2012

Hey! Thanks for joining me and the linksters (that's you awesome people that link up to this party) for our thrifty link up. But first! If you missed yesterdays post I encourage you to check it out. There is a giveaway!!! And some creative ways to say I Love You and a free printable.

So what do you love about the thrift store? I'd love for you to share in the comments section. You guys inspire my thrifty outings. Truly, I mean just read this post and not want to go thrifting or saleing (yard sale shopping)!

So one thing I notice often is that some of you sell your thrift finds. Well I decided recently that I was gonna have a go at that! And I also noticed that there is so much more to buy when you are shopping to resell. I see tons of things that I like but don't buy cause lets face it, I just don't need it.

Anyway thank you all for the inspiration. I will share when I do have some active listings. Any tips you'd care to share about this would be fantastic! Pah pah pah PLEASE! Tips on etsy, ebay, shipping and anything else you feel would be useful.

So here's what I found this week. A Miche bag, a lovely milk glass cake stand, a wooden pedestal style bowl that I see a makeover for in the near future. And a bag full of wine corks that we will be using for a class project.

Here's what y'all linked up last week!
Tatter and Fray (I must hang out with this woman some day) always finds the best stuff. Check out these glasses. She is one of you that I mentioned sells her finds.

Cheerful Thrifty Door found these neat glasses. Hey Cheerful do you sell?

Granny Sue found a whole load of stuff! Including this sugar dish.

And I also wanted to mention that Having a Hallelujah Good Time is teaching her son well! Go see how he turned his $2 into 4 PS2 games and $1.20 in GameStop store credit. Well done!!!

This my friends is what I love about the thrift store! So what did you find?

  1. Oh My Goodness!! Thanks so much for the encouragement and shout out!!

    When I purchase something at the thrift store it isn't like walking into Kmart and walking to the correct aisle and choosing a color of what everyone else is buying. When I find something at a thrift store it is like a treasure hunt with something special placed there just for me.

  2. Thank you for showcasing my thrifted Boopie glasses and mentioning my blog! I haven't started selling my items, but I have thought about it. Thanks for hosting this Thrift Store Link Party every week, I love the fun!!♥
