Have you been to your local Goodwill? Searching for that 70’s lamp your neighbour’s kids broke? Missing a record from your precious vinyl collection? Don’t mind the wall of musty wind that violates you as you walk through the door – it’s worth it! Thrift stores are a gold mine! Here are the latest finds:
The fun never ends when you stir up boring days with a trip to your local thrift store. You never know what amazing, and sometimes absolutely bizarre, things you’ll find! Have you wandered into your local thrift store lately?
Welcome back to another edition of Thrift Store Thursday! Each week, I head to the local thrift stores in search of the bizarre, the classic, and the downright awful things that people donate for the benefit of charity. Don’t get me wrong, thrift stores are a gold mine – that’s why I go! But sometimes you see something on the shelf that makes you cock an eyebrow, tilt your head, and say WHATTTTT the heck?? Here are the latest and greatest!
Check back next week for more thrift store finds!! You never know what’s going to be in store the next time you head to your local Goodwill, Salvation Army, or Value Village!
Last week I introduced the idea of Thrift Store Thursday. This week, we dive into adventure!!! There are many thrift stores in our area – from the old school Sally Ann (Salvation Army), to Value Village, and all the way to your local Christian Thrift Store (which has turned out to be quite the goldmine of cool stuff!).
Here are this week’s SuperDuper finds of awesomeness! Bronze pirate – HERE I COME!!!
I’ve noticed over the past few months that there’s a new trend on Instagram – Throwback Thursdays. People post old pictures of themselves and apply super awesome hipster filters and frames to them for all to see. I posted one once. Why are old pictures always humiliating? In any case, This whole Throwback Thursday thing seemed like a lot of work. I’d have to hunt for old photos each week. Or maybe prepare ahead of time. Who has time for that? I decided to pour my energy into a much more fun Thursday activity – Thrift Store Thursday!
What is Thrift Store Thursday, you ask? Well, on Thursday – you head out to your local thrift store (or maybe two or three) and see what absolute gems you can find! From that crazy t-shirt to the weirdest coffee table book you’ve ever seen – thrift stores contain hours of entertainment. And if you happen to find anything hideous enough – why not give it a home? It all goes to charity, after all!
My personal goal is to find a bronze pirate. I know, it’s a longshot – but I know there’s one out there. So the hunt is on!
I’ll be featuring Thrift Store Thursdays each week… until it gets old and boring… which could be one week, or many years! Thrift stores are a GOLD MINE for creepy and weird stuff that other people have gotten rid of for a reason.
