Thrift Score Thursday No. 109


Happy #ThriftScoreThursday my friends! It has been a busy week for me but that doesn’t mean I didn’t get in a few thrift finds along the way. This weeks finds seem to have a real bohemian feel and I love it! But what I.m even more excited about is the fact that I scored a few items I’ve been hunting for a while.

My first find was this colorful patchwork Kantha Quilt. I have been looking for something like this to make pillow covers out of for a while so when I found a huge pile of these at a salvage store I knew I needed one for myself. This one is 60″x90″ so I will be able to get a lot of covers out of just one. In this photo you’ll also see a tiny brass table I scored for $10 that will be perfect as a plant stand.


I also brought home this great purse made from what looks like woven pine needles. I spotted this a while back at the antique mall where I have my shop and loved the delicate weave. When I saw this week that it was on sale for 30% off I decided it had to be mine, lets call it an early Mother’s Day gift to myself.


And this little guy, let’s just say I saw him and couldn’t say no. (You know I have weakness for brass.) The tag says it is a llama but I kind of think it looks like a silly donkey. Either way I think he’s really cute.DSC00911

Now for your finds…

But first, 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.

My favorite finds:

thehomemakingmomma shared one of her favorite thrifted pieces that she scored for $38 at an antique market. So cool, a little pun intended…


linnyjanevintage  stopped at a Thursday garage sale and snagged these on way to a meeting and wearing heels. I love her dedication!


househomemade Just finished painting this garage sale find for her parents’ new house. I am always a sucker for bamboo.



melissasantiques One of her favorite auction buys, love the aqua blue canisters.


dravenmade found the EXACT coffee table she’d been wanting for her living room at an auction for just $15, what a deal!


erin_coleen a chair hunter after my own heart spotted this pink velvet slipper chair. If only she had room for it. If only I had room for it!


melissabrandman  scored her best Goodwill find EVER, Brass Unicorn Bookends. The unicorn is my thrift charm so hopefully it brings her luck too.


biggerthanthethreeofus got a crazy good deal on this headboard, $15! I’d have taken this one home with me at that price too.


Such great finds this week, I couldn’t help but include a few extras.

  3. Thanks so much for the feature! I’d been having a dry spell thrifting so it was fun to actually find something.

  4. Brynne@The Gathered Home says:

    Your finds are just absolutely stunning! That donkey is the cutest ever! And you are so lucky to have found a pile of those throws! Love your style, Maggie!

    • Thanks Brynne, I didn’t say the throw was a steal but at $38 it was way cheaper than the $125+ you pay online.

  5. Thanks for the feature, Maggie! 🙂

  6. LOVE the donkey and the throw! this morning your photos weren’t showing up but i knew it was on my end so i wanted to come back to see- the only one i could see then was the purse! 🙂

    • Technology it’s a bitch sometimes. Glad they are showing up now. This morning I was trying to view it and the photos were all squashed down to a thin line. What’s up with that?

  7. You always find magical pieces! Please just rub your hands on my head. I need the juju!

    • Awwwh thank Corinna, now that I’m reselling again I have a good excuse to do more shopping so the odds are in my favor.
