In keeping with my Stay-cation Summer theme, I'm teaming up with Invaluable (an online marketplace that carries everything from collectibles to fine art) to share the best thrifting places in my area and some of my favorite acquisitions along the way. You can check out their blog for more great tips.
Goodwill has always been of my go-to place for quality thrifting. We have a few in our area that I try to hit up on a regular basis.
When I first started blogging way back in 2010, I starting documenting my thrift scores and how I used them to decorate. Adding flameless candles and some shells and starfish to this bamboo birdcage gave it a summery vibe. See it's latest transformation here.
I'm always a sucker for shiny silver pieces. This Pottery Barn mini ice bucket wasn't so shiny when I found it but after I took it home and polished it..wow!
Spray paint is another way to spruce up thrifted pieces. I spray painted both the lantern and the the candleholder black to give them a fresh, new look.
Another thrift store that I like but don't get to as frequently is the Holy Redeemer Hospital Thrift Store. That's where I found this vintage dress that would be perfect for a summer wedding or shower.
Our absolute favorite places to find treasures is Bryn Athyn Thrift Shop aka BATS.We don't usually leave empty handed with fun things like this old camera up for grabs.
Miss High School started collecting these Wade pottery pieces after a trip to the store yielded a very reasonably priced starter collection.
BATS has come through for me with summer decorating. I've found lots of patriotic decor there.
Unique artwork can be found in the big old barn that houses the shop. Meet Steve the rhino.
Upstairs at BATS is full of clothing (like this summer skirt) and larger furniture pieces.sweet summer thrift score was this handmade patchwork quilt.
We're lucky that we don't have to go far to find great thrifting spots. Where are your favorite places to find treasures/bargains?
Let's keep in touch!Pin It
