Thrift Score Thursday

Happy Friday eve, friends! I’m especially excited on this particular Thursday to be guest hosting Thrift Score Thursday, a really excellent Instagram hashtag party hosted by Brynne of The Gathered Home, Cassie of Primitive and Proper, Corinna of A Designer at Home, and Tricia of Black and White Obsession.

I love love second-hand stuff (as most of you probably already know), and it turns out vicariously enjoying others’ finds is almost as good as finding a great thrift score yourself (almost). And guess what? You’re all invited to play along, too!

My Find

Starting off today with my find this week–this great sunburst mirror was a yard sale find. You can’t have too many mirrors, and I love the way this one shows its age. I haven’t found a place to hang it just yet because I basically want to hang it everywhere!


My Picks


Ashley from Bigger than the Three of Us scored this awesome mid-century dresser on Craigslist for only $50, and I absolutely love the drawer pulls! Ashley is a fellow Springfieldian, so I’m glad she got to this before I did, because I would have been very tempted to buy it myself and lawd knows I don’t need another dresser. Plus it looks so nice against that lovely color in her master bedroom.

Can you believe Alice from Thoughts from Alice got this amazing rattan footstool for only $2 (yes, that is TWO UNITED STATES DOLLARS)?! Meanwhile, I spent my $2 on a package of Trolli Octopus Gummies, and that seemed like a great deal until I found out about this stool. I’m always a big fan of rattan, but the charming boho fabric puts this one over the top.

Sabrina (@futuristichuman) is one of my thrifting heroes (check out #thriftingwithsabrina to see all her scores, but be prepared to be very jealous!) and this estate sale rug is just the reason why. I have eternal rug mania, and this one has color, pattern, texture–everything! The craftsmanship is just gorgeous.

Speaking of craftsmanship, Jenn from Suite 22 Antiques found this amazing wooden horse sculpture that was carved by a human. Like with his or her hands! I never get over how cool the idea of that is. Jenn finds the niftiest stuff, and she actually sells it on Etsy, which I could never do because I am undisciplined and a hoarder. You should check out her shop, though, because her stuff is priced really well and is all extremely charming.

  1. I love that mirror to death! It’s so perfect! What a great find! I’m so glad you joined us this week – I love your style so much!


  2. haha! Thanks for the feature! The guy that I bought it off in Bolivar said that he had it on the swap meet website in Bolivar for a month and no one wanted it. He put it on Craigslist in Springfield at 7am and I emailed him at 7:15am. He said he would hold it for me until that afternoon. When I went to pick it up, he said that he had over 50 emails from 7:15-noon! I felt kinda bad for him, because he could have easily sold it in town for $200!

    Love your find!


    • Oh my gosh, what a story! I work in Bolivar, and I can kind of see how it wouldn’t necessarily be the most popular thing there, but not a single taker?! That is just wild! So glad the guy held it for you. Maybe he could have gotten more for it, but you took it off his hands, and really, you will give it a better home than those other people, lol. I call it a win-win!
