Thrift Score Thursday

Hi Everyone! I'm popping in quickly today to show you a few of my latest Thrift Store Scores. Without a doubt, Impact Thrift in Montgomeryville is my go-to, need-a-fix thrift store. I almost always leave with something.

This past week I found this sweet woven basket....




Seventy-nine cents. That's right cents. Could not pass up. It would be fun in one of my girls rooms, a bathroom, a shelf - it's adorable.

And this beauty...I spent a little bit more than I had hoped but still at $8.00 I couldn't pass on this brass pitcher/vase (?) for the shape and interest. I really liked how elongated the handle is and the neck of the piece itself. It was love at first sight. I don't really know the origin of it at all, and if you look closely you can see that it is etched/engraved with a pretty pattern. I'll have to do some more research and get back to you on my findings.




And you may be wondering...ok, what does Holly do with all of this stuff? (I'm sure my husband wonders the same thing). Well, a lot of things I keep for us/me since I really do love everything that I buy (which you should always love what you buy), but recently I've been picking up more clients that are in need of accessorizing and styling assistance. These smaller projects are perfect for me and my schedule right now and I LOVE to help with finishing touches. Anything that I do not use goes into a projects bin, so if I need some items for a client project I shop my bins in addition to shopping other stores. Wayyyy down the road, my dream would be to open a small shop in town but that's really in the distant future. :)

To check out more Thrift Score Thursday items, you can search the #ThriftScoreThursday hashtag on Instagram and see what other goodies people have picked up.

What's going on in your neck of the woods?

  1. Love this piece! Great find. When I lived in Riyadh, Saudia Arabia growing up, you could find these pieces everywhere! This piece reminds me of a version of their tea pots that they use over there (although smaller in size). In fact, my parents have many of these types of pieces from our stay over there.

    1. Go Laura go! Always a fun adventure and I never feel bad about it - it's a green activity and I don't usually spend much either.
