So what does this mean? Well it means I get to share with you my bestest #ThriftScoreThursday find and also some of my faves from Instagram, too!

Here’s my pick: you may have already seen this find here and a few times on my own Instagram account too, but it’s by far one of my best thrifty finds ever!


kitchen table and chairs 6

Yep… our kitchen table and chairs. All five pieces cost $25, and I still can’t believe that’s all I paid for them! The chairs have since been reupholstered, and because of that I love them even more!

Now as for picking my favourites using #TriftScoreThursday on Instagram, well that was tough to do!

My first pick is this amazing gorgeous brass chair with dotted upholstery. I’ll take all of them, please! This one comes to us via @stephlovesdesign who has so many amazing thrift store finds, I want to be her friend and go shopping with her like right now!

Next we have this gorgeous collection of marble candle holders. I mean, perfect much? Thanks for sharing your incredible finds @myeclecticnest!

And finally, this milk glass goddess right here. I don’t know what it is about milk glass lately, but I am loving it so stinkin much! This right here is a gem, right from @quince_cottage.

    THANK YOU for the shout out! I adore you blog and your finds! Anytime you’re in the Chicago area, let me know and we will definitely go shopping :) for anyone currently living in the chicago area, I found those brass beauties at New Elephant in Lincoln Park. They have 2 locations (1145 W Webster & 2209 N Halsted) and their proceeds go to charity. So you can be charitable while finding amazing goodie — and it makes spending slightly easier to justify :)
