Thrifted Thursdays

Hi all! Another Thrifted Thursday here. Just wanted to show off a few of my latest and favorite thrifted treasures.

Sweetpea wanted in on the shoot again, she loves getting into whatever mama is working on :] This chevron blanket wasn't thrifted - sorry - but I did find it in my basement and had no clue it existed until a few days ago. This blanket was given to my mom some time in the 70's by a sweet neighbor. She thought the colors were too wild growing up but I fell instantly in love with them. The colors are still so bright and looks brand new. Although it wasn't thrifted, I was just too excited and had to share with someone.

Lace Skirt - This skirt came from Forever 21 but I picked it up at Village Discount for less than a dollar :]

Leather Purse - My mom had a coupon to one of our favorite thrift stores so I picked up this genuine leather purse for under $2. I don't think anyone used it by the looks of it. I was in dire need of a new purse so I was glad to find this.

Metal guitar - I found this at a local Savers. I really like all of the detailing on it. I plan on cleaning it up and repainting it. I like the distressed look it has at the moment though, so I will try to allow some of the bottom copper color to show through.


Happy thrifting everyone!! Have you found anything exciting recently?

  1. I'm just melting over that leather purse. In Germany we don't really have thrift stores like that, I'm sure we do in really big cities like Berlin or Hamburg, but in smaller cities not really. I swear, if I went to Nurnberg I'd be buying that purse for like 240euro or something. It's so pretty dear, I hope you enjoy styling with it :)

    1. I am sorry to hear that. We have a bunch in my town. There is a lot of junk in them, but you can find gems too. Thank you, I haven't used the purse just yet but am excited to start pairing it with outfits soon :]

    1. My mom listens in to this radio shopping show and two of our favorite thrift stores have coupons so we pay like $3 for a $10 coupon, etc. It is pretty awesome and gives us and excuse to get our thrift on :]

    1. I can't wait to spruce the guitar up. It used to have a turquoise color on it, so I think I am going to stick with that but brighten it up a bit.

  14. That purse is a goodie and will remain relevant for a very long time. Score!

    I also really dig that iron guitar/banjo. But I have to admit that I would probably attack it with a brightly coloured can of spray paint too. I have a spray paint problem.

    1. It definitely will :]

      Haha, I do too! There isn't anything a can of spray paint can't spiffy up. I just spray painted an antique mirror a baby blue color and love the results.
