Hey all! I have really been inspired by Pinterest lately and what you can find for decor at the thrift store, so I decided to go check one out and see what I could find. I think I found some good stuff to start out, but I am sure I will get much better at thrifting with more practice. I thought I would just make a post about the items I found and a little bit of a collective haul with things I was also able to find at Ross and Target. I hope you enjoy this post and please let me know what other types of things I should keep an eye out for the next time I go to the thrift store.
The French Laundry Cookbook $1. I was looking for healthy cookbooks at the thrift store, but this is what I found. Not exactly healthy, but super fancy, nice food that may be fun to make for a dinner party. This book is obviously also just nice to look at.
Yellow Recipe Tin 50¢. I thought this little in recipe tin was so cute, but I’m not entirely sure what I am going to put in it yet or where I will put it. Please let me know if you have any suggestions!
Wicker Basket $1. I love this little basket and am thinking I can just use it to keep things a little more organized or even put cute little linens in. I do also want to find a basket without a handle because I think it looks so cute when you use a wicker basket to put potted plants in.
You Are a Badass $2. I am so excited to read this book because I have heard such amazing things about it. Currently I am struggling with going through job interviews and have had a lot of rejection, so I am hoping this will help me with my confidence throughout this process. I am super excited to read it and will try to give a little review on it in a future post if anyone is interested.
Scarfs $4 and $2. The more expensive scarf is the white, red and blue one I have included in all of my pictures and I absolutely love it. I am thinking I might put this at the end of a bed or drape it somewhere. I also bought a more colorful one, which is similar in size, pictured below because they had a buy one get one free deal.
Ross Dress For Less
Adidas NMD R1 Primeknit Shoes $52.99. These shoes were such a splurge for me, but I have been wanting shoes in this color and my boyfriend insisted that I get them because they are such fancy tennis shoes. They are super comfortable and stretchy and I really think they are adorable, so I am really happy I got them. In the end, they were a pretty great deal. I’ve linked them above on Amazon, but I haven’t found these anywhere else in this colorway.
The Balm, The Manizer Sisters $4.99 I could not pass up this deal! I have heard amazing things about the Mary-Lou Manizer and the Betty-Lou Manizer so I really wanted to try this out. I am slowly collecting The Balm products from Ross and TJ Maxx and I have loved everything I have tried so far and you can find really great deals on this brand at those stores.
Whamisa by Glow Studio Cleansing Gel $4.15. I am not sure why this was on such a good sale (originally $24.99). I think because the box was slightly dented, but I also think that this has been discontinued because it is no longer on the Target website. However, either way, I still wanted to try it out because it really does have good reviews.
I am really excited to start reading and putting a lot of this decor in the new house! I decided not to take the pictures in a decorative way because I am planning on posting lots of pictures for each room when I move in. I will also plan on posting more thrift hauls when I do more in the future. Please let me know in the comments if you have any super creative ideas for how to use these items because I will need all the help I can get. Thank you so much for reading!
