As a child you wouldn't catch me dead in a thrift store. At that time I pictured thrift stores as being old and dingy with beat up product. Fast forward to now, and you can't keep me out of the thrift store. I believe it's the hunt and the unexpected finds that keeps me going back for more.
The thrift store has become my go-to place for certain things around the house. Now, there are some things I still won't purchase from a thrift store, but there are 6 things that I always search the thrift store for before I commit to purchasing from a big box retailer. Check them out below:
2. Knick Knacks
3. Coffee Mugs
I found this vase here for $2.00, this small bowl for $.50 and this mug for $.77. I've seen this mug at Target for $5.00 so you can imagine my excitement when I saw it at Goodwill!. The B is perfect because it's the first initial of my mister's name.
Baskets are overflowing at the thrift store. I found this basket for about $2.00 and now I use it as a planter. I have other baskets from the thrift store around my house that I use for organizing my craft supplies.
6. White Dishes
Little white dishes always interest me. They look great for serving and gives a kitchen an instant brightness. I found this jar for about $3.00 that I store my sugar in and updated it with word decals. The white dish was $.99. Books are also a great find at a thrift store for reading, of course, but also for decor. You can look for books to match your color scheme and add them for instant decor. I believe I got those for less than $3.00 together.
Now tell me, what items do you thrift before you buy? And if you need a handy list to remember these items I have a pinnable picture below. Don't forget to pin it to your favorite boards!
