Why I love thrift stores

20 pieces. $4.

And six of the silver plated forks even match! (They just took a bit of elbow grease to clean up).

I got a ton of other stuff too, like a mini pizza peal, several “silver” trays, a cool wooden bowl, a new milk steamer pitcher, a vintage chinois, and a crochet table cloth… all in just $24.

Thrift stores have got to be the best place for props, ever.

    Jack – It’s a great place for jeans too. They already have the worn in look without the $$.

    Eliza – It’s amazing what you can find there… I went looking for old wooden cutting boards (which were strangely missing), but left with so much other cool stuff I didn’t regret it!


  • A woman after my own heart 🙂 LOVE the thrift stores!

    I absolutely LOVE thrift stores! Since we are on a budget, this is where we do most of our clothes shopping. You can find good quaility clothes for very reasonable prices. I always wash them, then they’re good to go. It saves us tons of money and we still look nice.
