Thrift Score Thursday No. 126


It’s time again for #ThriftScoreThursday and this week my find is pretty colorful. I actually bought this pretty little needlepoint pillow on a trip to Savannah where I did some antiquing with a friend.  The pillow was sitting right in the front of the store on an orange mid-century chair the exact same color as my sofa. My mind said “Hmmm, I think I need this!”


The details were so amazing I figured it must be vintage maybe 1960’s but I saw the date on it was 1990. Of course, 1990 was 26 years ago so I guess it is vintage.


I fell in love with the colors and since I knew exactly where it would go at my house I checked the price. When I saw it was marked down to just $8 there was no question whether to buy it or not.


Now that it’s mine,  it’s looking perfect on my little orange sofa.

Now let’s have a closer look at what you guys found…

But first, for the 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 Cassie Bustamante, Corinna from A Designer At Home, Brynne from The Gathered Home, myself and occasionally a guest-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 Favorites:

When her cousin said she had some chairs she thought she’d like thisvintagegrove’s snatched them up. Now she doesn’t just like them, she loves them and so do I. Looks like the cat did too but a little fresh upholstery and these guys are perfect!


candacedee scored this bent wood pendant light on a random trip home. I love the shape of this beauty, don’t you?


The thrifting gods must have been shining down on casacavaliere when she found this rug because it is simply divine! I wish I could find a beauty like this one.


You gotta love when your thrifting mom  is looking out for you. Ourdiydwelling’s mom found her this pretty little tea set. I might put her to work scoring some things for me.


Love these pretties guys, now keep on shopping and keep on sharing!

Now don’t forget to stop by and check out all my co-hosts to see what they’ve been up and their favorite #ThriftScoreThursday finds.

  2. I love your pillow SO MUCH! Needlepoint is one of my weaknesses!

    Thanks SO MUCH for choosing my chairs! Yep, she let her cat use them as a scratching post! CUE ALL THE TEARS!!!!!!!!!! She said they were mint when she got them. Hope I can find some fabric that is similar. I even love the original color.

    • Oh man that’s a crime against chairs! I do love them in this exact color, home fully you can find something close. Do share the after when they get there!

  3. I love your pillow and that rug she found is amazing.

  4. Ooooh, you know I love that pillow, Maggie!!! It looks amazing with the other colors in that room!

  5. WOW! What finds! I love that needlepoint pillow! I snagged my favourite (and only one) at a huge outdoor garage sale a few years back. The finds are perfect – they’d do well in anyone’s living room!
