$2.00 Tuesday

You know sometimes it’s the simple things we find to make our house a home.  Sure, to make the search easier, we can go to Walmart or Target, peruse the isles of what we’re looking for and get it, but not often will you find them for $2.00.  Then, there are those of us who hunt elsewhere for the thrill and usually accomplish the goal of finding such items.  I always check my local estate sales, flea markets and thrift stores “FIRST”.    Case in point, I needed another planter for the new edition of the green family and popped into a thrift store and found the basket planter for $2.00

I thought about giving it a bit of glam, perhaps later on, but for now, I’m loving it and it’s the perfect look for the plant. My friend Ginene, over at Fox and Finch Antiques hit a flea market and grabbed this vintage tin lunch box to add to her collection of memorabilia.   How many of you remember having the tin lunchboxes?   The daisy pattern was a popular style in the 1950s and 60s.

My instagram buddy Amber, aka, preppybohemianathome scored big time with the seashell plant hanger.  My mouth dropped when I saw her steal of a deal!!

She also found a fab pillow to add to her stash of sofa accessories for $2.00.  Amber has a distinct flare of boho glam and considers herself an avid thrifter, a chronic re-arranger, a coffee connoisseur, a plant hoarder, and lover of all things color! Visit her blog for more inspiration on how to create your own bohemian eclectic style.

and speaking of pillows – a big kudos to my son, Amir for scoring not one, but two accent pillows for $2.00 – to compliment his bachelor pad in Atlanta.  They say the apple don’t fall far from the tree, so I guess in this case.. the old saying is true – p.s on another note – I’m giving him props for decorating his entire apartment on thrift finds.  I did add a few touches but for the most part, he did it himself.  (makes me smile)  🙂

And there you have it, this week’s $2.00 Tuesday inspiration finds.  The bargains are out there, just remember Happy hunting while you thrift your house into a home!

  1. I loved seeing your son’s finds! That’s got to feel good when you kids pickup on good habits like thrifting. That’s why I always take my kids to garage sales. You should start a movement with this $2 Tuesday! 🙂

    • Hi Crystal! It most definitely did… and he clearly sees the benefits of thrifting. Thank you for visiting glad you enjoyed reading and yes the $2.00 is a fun post I’ve been running for a while.. so if you ever luck up worth a find do tag me so i can feature you. Thanks again

  2. Go ON, Amir!!!!! I am SCARED of him!!! Anyone can waltz into a department store and buy stuff that works for a room, but to scour the thrift stores and find so much that coordinates…excellent! And of COURSE I had a tin lunchbox as a little one! I remember so badly wanting a Jackson 5 lunch pail…that I never got!

    • Thanks Alycia! I have him a big hug and a high five for that! And I’m letting you know… if i come across a Jackson 5 lunch pail – it’s yours..i got you!
