Forgive me guys, I know I’m suppose to continue the Victorian Charm home tour, but I wanted to interrupt it with a quick post of thrifty Thursday.. I have to say one thing for sure …. it’s been a freaking thrifters’ paradise out here. I can envision us (fellow thrifters) sitting in the anonymous cyber circle and admitting to our guilty pleasure of being a “thrifterholic”, meanwhile showcasing our fancy finds, giving the reason behind the addiction. So with that being said.. My name is Jamala and I’m a “thrifterholic”. Anyone else ready to step inside the cyberbox and confess with me? Don’t be afraid..there’s a lot of love in this group… chuckles…. we’re birds of a feather that flock together… 🙂
Okay.. now that’s over and done with.. let’s jump to all the goodies that were found!
I heard about a new Goodwill that opened in Lancaster and decided to take a visit. Glad I did, because I found this loveseat for $50.00. Excellent condition – no stains, smells or damages. So this came home with me for my son’s house. He just purchased his first “starter” home and he’s pretty excited. Woohooo to him!! This will be perfect for his living room.
I’m no wine specialist or sommelier but when we popped into another off the beaten path thrift store, I stumbled upon what looked like swizzle stick with a cork thingy..and did a quick research and found out it was a Winecicle. They sell for in the range from $8.00 (without an Aerator) to $50.00 (with an Aerator). If you’re like me and hadn’t heard of them, you simply freeze it approximately one hour before using your wine. Once frozen, place the icicle in the bottle to keep your wine perfectly chilled Wait for 10 mins and it is ready to pour at right temp. They’re easy to wash and clean and it’s dishwasher safe.
The one I found has an Aerator and it was $4.00. A perfect accessory for the bar cart
If you’re following me on Instagram, I posted this gorgeous crystal cut pitcher that was another thrifted find for $2.00 – They make my fresh cut hydrangeas look so beautiful
another look… because they’re just so darn beautiful… (I loooooves me some hydrangeas!!!)
insert another smile 🙂
I got an email from the Goodwill Blog letting us know of another Goodwill grand-opening in West Columbia. Me and my musketeers got up early and headed there and boy are we glad we did. I found this set of Threshold gold flatware for $10.50. They had 6 boxes – so needless to say… you know what I used my contest giftcards on (yippppeeeee !!)
A thrifting diva Toni found this snazzy club chair for $12.46. I can’t wait to see what she does with it.. High-5 Toni!
and fellow Instagrammer Marla found this fabulous pair of metal & lucite lamps at a local thrift store.. (She really peeped these bad-boys out!!) she spent a whopping $6.00 on them..lol.. High-5 and a hip bump to you girlfriend!)
and last but not least – Up next – is one of the grandest mirrors found by another thrifting diva Shelly and it was “THEEEE best” $45.00 spent. You know my mouth dropped open and eyes got big as pool balls.. lol… She gets 2 high-5’s, a hip bump and a heel kick on this score.
She’s using it in her boutique and as you see, it adds the perfect chic-ness for her decor- WAY TO GO Shelly!!!
Now you see why I was soooooo excited to post a Thrifty Thursday??? It’s really fantastic seeing all the gorgeous finds out here and how everyone is thrifting their house into a home. As always, it’s not what it costs, but how you style it. Happy Hunting and have a wonderful weekend! (up next is the Victorian Charm home tour continuation 🙂
