Happy #ThriftScoreThursday everybody! For me this Thursday is a very happy one. As you all know I am an avid thrifter, some weeks I find one or two good deals, other weeks the clouds part and the thrift gods shine down upon me and there are great deals everywhere I turn. This was one of those weeks!
It all started with our spring break vacation which landed us in Atlanta for the weekend. When I ran across an estate sale which advertised lots of Asian objects and I knew I had to go. Because of our plans we didn’t make it until day two of the sale but even on day two the house was packed with all kinds of global goodies. The family had a military background and had traveled all over Asia and the Middle East collecting everything along the way. This place was a bohemian/chinoiserie dream.
The day two bonus, 30% off everything! Have a look at just a small bit of the three floors of awesomeness we saw while we were there.
Well how could I resist all this? I didn’t!
We ended up purchasing everything in the photo above, and then some, including a nice pair of binoculars for my son and I embroidered silk kimono for my daughter (as repayment for spending part of our vacation at an estate sale, fine call it a bribe if you’d like.)
Have a closer look at my sweet China doll,
and this gold unicorn that has been this week’s lucky charm.
I even scored a few glass bonsai trees which have always been a favorite of mine. These three cost $20 total.
My husband even found a few things for his collection.
Pretty impressive haul for under $200. I only wish I’d had more to spend.
Now for your #ThriftScoreThursday finds.
For newcomers let me explain just what #ThriftScoreThursday is. We want you to participate! Hit up your local thrift stores, craigslist, yard sales, estate sales, side of the road, anything! Thrifty doesn’t necessarily mean from a thrift store. We want to see your good deals, wacky finds and true treasures.
You can share your finds any day of the week but features are shared on our blogs and Instagram on Thursdays, but we’re all checking in on (and using!) the hashtag all week long. So, when you see/find it, feel free to share it! And we love it when you tag your friends to play along, too!
Each week Cassie from Primitive and Proper, Corinna from A Designer At Home, Brynne from The Gathered Home, myself and occasionally a guest co-host will pick a few favorite thrift scores to feature on our blogs! Please note that by linking up with #ThriftScoreThursday, you are giving us permission to share your finds via social media or on our blogs.
