Thrift Score Thursday

Hey, hey, hey you guys! (I’m suddenly feeling like Fat Albert here.) I’m back again to guest host another Thrift Score Thursday on Instagram. I really hope you brought your a-game and hashtagged all your thrifted treasures with #thriftscorethursday. Unlike last time, I was perfectly prepared, well prepared until my lovely ladies added in a twist. The gals want to add in a bit of a challenge (if you can handle it) called “Have Yourself A Merry Thrifted Christmas”. Yep, that’s right, if you’ve got a holiday thrifted item, photograph and hashtag that puppy up before December 18.

Holiday Thrift Store Challenge Blog Hop

Holiday Thirft Store Challenge

When I got the email from Thoughts From Alice asking if I’d like to participate in the Holiday Thrift Store Challenge, I didn’t have to think twice. Yes! And yes again! Okay, how ’bout yes a third time. I was super jazzed to participate with the list of fabulous bloggers she had put together. And completely honored. But, could I keep up? I mean, I am the (self proclaimed) thrifting queen in my own little world. Well, kinda. I’m the flea market slash antiquing queen in my own little world, but thrift stores are a bit out of my element. I hadn’t been to one in a long time. You really have to know what you’re doing and have good eyes when it comes to thrift store gems. Diamonds in the rough I guess you’d call them.

So what’s this “challenge” shtuff that am I chattering about? Well, Alice asked us to venture out to our local thrift store and procure something anything for under $25 to use as holiday decor in a creative way. We could give these items a complete makeover or use it/them in a creative vignette. She wanted us to see beyond the surface of what someone discarded or no longer needed and think outside the box. She wanted us to show you, our readers, how to save money on holiday decor by using a little creativity. Well, Alice! Challenge accepted!
