This year’s thrifting has started off pretty strong! I had incredible luck at my local Goodwill, scoring a whopping seven John Denver vinyl records that I didn’t previously have, plus a giant Pendleton snow globe with Mt. Hood inside.
My husband groaned at the records (he just doesn’t understand the magic of Johnny D’s voice), but he thought the snow globe was pretty cool.
I’ll be honest, I about screamed when I saw it on the shelf in the store. Who would get rid of something that cool?! I paid $12 for it, which seems like a lot, but I knew Pendleton is expensive, so when I got home I looked it up. It’s still on the website for $80. Holy cow, you guys!
I also found these black heeled booties of my dreams. It was a great day. Enough said.
I picked up a few things at Salvation Army in January as well:
- Nude full slip (for some reason these are ridiculously hard to find)
- Jeans to DIY into shorts (should I do a shorts DIY for you all?)
I hadn’t made a trip to the bins in about a year, and boy was this a good trip. I scored a bunch of children’s books for my nephew for 10 cents each, a few sweaters to add to my Poshmark inventory, and this gorgeous giant mandala tapestry.
It was by far the crowning glory of the trip. I’d been dying for one nearly exactly like this, but they’re about $40 online. I got this for like $2, since nearly everything is sold by the pound at the bins. Crazy, right?
Unfortunately, it’s so much bigger than I thought, so I don’t currently have a place to hang it. Our apartment isn’t huge, so there’s already stuff on the walls (wedding pictures, etc.). But as soon as we move it’ll be one of the first things I hang up!
Look out for a post soon on how to shop the bins! In the meantime, let me know what great things you’ve thrifted lately!
