Thrifty Thursday Finds!

Yesterday, I did something I had not done in a LONG time! I went to the thrift store. Like everyone, my life has been crazy lately, and I have gotten away from doing the simple things I love! Call me crazy, but my local thrift store is one of my favorite places to be. Maybe its because I know I can always find something to upcycle, or maybe its because it smells like old people, kidding, totally kidding. But I love it! Part of the reason I made a special trip in to the thrift store was to find a swap item for my Thrift Store Swap group! Regardless of the reason, I was happy to be there.
I found those cute little quatrefoil-type wall hangings for $2, the blank canvas for $1, the Authentic Louisville Slugger for $4, the plaque with hooks for $3 and a GIANT bundle of rafia for 50 cents! Is that a score or what? I also found a few other items to be included in my Thrift Store Swap, but I want them to be a surprise for my partner!
This Saturday, I have no plans, no work, and no school assignments that need to be done. Which leaves me with a full day to craft and re-do our gallery wall! All of this stuff really stuck out to me in one way or another. Although I could leave all items as-is, but what would be the fun in that? They're going to be transformed in to greatness. It will all be featured in our updated gallery wall, and I can't wait to show you how it all turns out.
Have a great Friday Y'all!

  3. I have never been really able to get into thrifting, but this summer I got a gift card to one of Charlotte's more upscale thrift stores that I need to use when I'm back there this fall- so I'll be giving it a try soon! I hope I have as much luck as you do! :-)

  13. Looks like you found quite the hall! I went thrifting today as well... for a certain swap ) and then after an hour of searching and finding cute items was told that their credit card machine was down and they were only accepting cash. Bummer. On the bright side... I get to go thrifting again now... ah the smell of old people... I look forward to it!

  19. You scored big!!! My favorite ever thrift find were these two gorgeous bright green salad bowls for a total of $0.50. Awesome quality, and still use them nearly everyday! Sometimes thrift stores just bring the MOST shopping satisfaction.
