I know all my thrifters out there know what it’s like to see that find that takes your breath away. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad and sometimes it just plain ugly. When I run across these items I just can’t help but take a photo so I can remember the things I didn’t buy. These photos are of things that baffle my mind that they were ever purchased in the first place. The things that you just don’t know what to say about. The things that are just so out there you kind of love them anyway but can’t for the life of you decide where they could live peacefully. Things I didn’t buy, This #TriftScoreThursday is dedicated to you!
This living room set is so over the top I kind of love it. Finds like these make me wish I was a set designer and had just the right genre I needed to fit so I could snap this up. I’m thinking Boogie Nights 2 might be the perfect set.
I love vintage needlework but this craft project is not exactly what I’m usually looking for.
They always refer to Jesus as the light but I think this chandelier may have taken that a bit too literally.
I’m not one of those people who is scared of clowns but these clowns pretty much clarify why people find them creepy. Whether it’s Ronald Mcdonald’s secret love child, a 3D poltergeist clown coming to tell you the time, or the “Sexy Clown” who you DO NOT want at you kid’s birthday party, none of these will ever be making it to my house from the thrift store.
And that’s just a few tings I didn’t buy.
Now let’s have look at few finds you DO want to take home …
But first for the new comers 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 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.
I am a huge fan of flea market art so when I saw ericareitman had scored an entire portfolios of work from one artist I was so jealous. Check out these two beauties…
o0mckenzie0o found this 1950’s Crosley Dashboard Backlite Radio which is a retro cutie with the bonus of an amazing color I have never seen before.
yomiland found this great rug with even more amazing color.
and thriftcandy must have known my weakness is chairs because she totally stole my heart with this yellow desk chair. (#moschairjunkie)
Once again a gorgeous haul from you guys…
Now don’t forget to stop by and check out all my co-hosts to see what they’ve been up to and their favorite #ThriftScoreThursday finds.
