I love thrifting, and my home is made up of so many beautiful thrifted items! Today I want to share my recent thrift haul and 3 thrifting reminders!
It’s been a while since I shared a good thrift haul with you guys on the blog! This past weekend I scored BIG, and just had to share my recent thrift haul and 3 thrifting reminders with you all!
My main desire in sharing these hauls is to inspire you and encourage you to keep on thrifting. Do I find treasures every time I thrift? Nope. Do I let that stop me from thrifting? Absolutely not!
For me, the “thrill of the hunt” is so exciting. You just never know what you might find! Be sure to watch the YouTube video linked above to see all of the amazing things that you can score at thrift stores. I love taking you guys along!
Today I wan to share what I found and how much I paid, and then I also have a few thrifting reminders that I’d like to leave with you all!
Recent Thrift Haul Finds
Vintage Basket with Leather Handles
Ahhh isn’t this the sweetest little basket?! I just love it! I don’t know what I’ll use if for just yet, but for 2.99 I had to bring it home with me! I have whole blog post about decorating with thrift store baskets here if you ‘d like to check it out. I’d love to hear your ideas for this basket in the comments below!
Set of 6 Mini Glass Bowls
These cute little bowls were only .35 cents each, and guess what? The entire store was half off so I scored all six for just a buck. Is it strange how much I love these? I share recipes and videos every now and then here on the blog and I thought it would be so much fun to use these bowls for ingredients and spices!
Vintage Glass Measuring Cup
I loved how large this glass measuring cup was, but I was hesitant because it was $10 and set aside in the “antique” section that wasn’t half off. Thankfully I remembered that I had a $5 off coupon in my wallet! Score! I had to bring it home with me.
2 Pfaltzgraff Mugs
If you’re new here, I love collecting White Heritage Pfaltzgraff. In fact, I wrote a whole blog post about my collection and why I feel like this set is so timeless. I don’t have mugs like these, and even though there were only two, I had to snatch them up.
Brand New Threshold Storage Ottoman from Target
Guys, I scored this adorable ottoman for $8.99!! Can you believe it?! Brand new with the tags still on. I think I’ll use it my boys bedroom!
Brand New Hearth and Hand Duvet Cover
This duvet cover retails for $70 at Target. It was brand new but had some blue highlighter on it and was marked down to $8.99! I was over the moon excited because this is exactly what I was looking for for my boys room – bedding with blue stripes. I just couldn’t believe God provided one at that price. He cares about the little things!
Here’s a little sneak peek of it on the bed, it could not have been more perfect for the space!
Brand New Threshold Basket
This sturdy, beautiful basket was only $15, and at first I thought I would use it in the boys room but I may use it elsewhere, we’ll see. I love the color and the fact that it has a handle!
I paid a little more for these than what I usually do, but they were so cute and the perfect colors for the boys’ room!
How perfect is this old baseball for the the boys’ sports themed bedroom? It was only $1.50 and I love the cracking and patina it has.
Drawer with Wheels
We are going to add a twin trundle under the boys’ full size bed in case all 3 boys ever want to bunk together, so there will be extra room underneath for some toy storage. I just love this drawer on wheels! It was only $5 and I am always looking for more ways to store things away.
3 Thrifting Reminders
Just because you don’t know how you would use it doesn’t mean you should leave it there. If you LOVE it, you will find a place for it. Maybe you need to move things around or play with your house a bit first, but it will come to you!
I would so much rather buy something and try it in my home than leave it at the thrift store and regret it later on! Remember, most thrift stores have a pretty good return policy, so if you’re on the fence about something be sure to ask about returns!
Larger chain thrift stores (like Goodwill and Salvation Army for example) often have things donated to them from places like Target, Walmart and Kohls.
Can you believe I found all of those brand new items for a fraction of the price?! Now aways be sure to check the item over before you buy it, oftentimes things are donated and marked “salvage” because the packaging is damaged or the item itself is broken.
That leads me to my third reminder!
Don’t be afraid to ask if prices are negotiable. Like I said earlier, the duvet cover had highlighter on it. Guess what? It was marked at $19.99.
I brought it up to pay and showed them my discovery, then politely asked if they could take more money off due to the stain.
They were SO gracious and immediately said yes! Not only that, the manager signed her initials on the receipt and told me that if the stain didn’t come out in the wash that I could still return it! She then marked it down to $8.99.
Praise the Lord, the stain came out no problem. It never hurts to ask!
I hope this recent recent thrift haul and 3 thrifting reminders were an inspiration to you, friends! Do you enjoy thrifting posts like this? I don’t know about you, but whenever I see thrift store hauls it always makes me want to go thrifting! Let me know if you’re the same way in the comments below!
