Thrift Store Thursday

The winner of the shower curtain will be drawn Thursday morning at 9:00. There's still time to enter!

In addition to the shower curtains, here’s what I got this week. At Goodwill I found these pink ‘lantern’ lights for Pinkerbelle’s room.IMG_2802 At $9, I might have passed them up as a little too pricey, but P. was with me…you know how that goes.

At another GW, this found its way into my cart, $4.IMG_2835 I’ve collected a bunch of glass containers over the last months, but I’m not very good about getting them filled with something.

I found these on craigslist, for $5 each.IMG_2836

Kind of like these, from Pottery Barn, no?pbsoda

The last couple of weeks, I have forgotten to include the TST “rules” . The items you show can be from a thrift or consignment store, a garage sale, craigslist, dumpster diving…as long as it’s second-hand. Even if it’s new in the package, but you got it somewhere other than the original store (like the Target stuff at GW).

1. Please link directly to your Thrift Store Thursday post, not your home page.

2. Please mention and link back to my Thrift Store Thursday post.

3. Please put my button in your post, and I'd really love it if you'd use the code to do so :)

Pinkerbelle's room is enchanting. The lights really do make the mosquito netting look special. The crates are wonderful. What are you planning on doing with them? Thanks for hosting. :)

I love that Pepsi crate. I am a huge pepsi addict and I am always on the lookout for Pepsi stuff but usually I can only find coca-cola items. What a great find!

Hi! I'm new to your blog, and new to blogging, too. I don't have any thrifty things today, but wanted to stop by an say hello.
I just love those soda crates you found...and for $5 each! What are you going to do with them?

I love the crates!! I posted my thrify thursday post, thinking I was being all clever and original. Then a fellow blogger friend pointed me over here. So thought I'd join in, at least for this week! Thanks for sharing your awesome finds!

I'm simply dying over your Pepsi crates. They are on my list of things that I'm on the hunt for. Can't wait to see what you do with them!

Christina said...

Love the lights. I know how it is when the little ones are with you. :)
I'm sure she thinks they are just magical.

Great deal on the crates. Love them! I'm also interested to see what you decide to do with them. So many possibilities.

I will be back to link up my post later. I'm still working on it.

Oh and don't forget to see our post yesterday. You won one of our giveaways.

Anna said...

I really like those lights, and looking forward to seeing what you do with the crates

Bet your little girl is loving the pink lanterns, and I do like the tall glass piece. I will be out of town tomorrow, and hope maybe to come across a few thrifty finds. Have a great weekend! Jackie

Jenny said...

Cute lanterns! I love the soda crates you found. I'm sure the ones at Pottery Barn were a few hundred dollars!

I just posted about some finds from this past week:

The lights caught my eye while I was looking at another post and I just had to click over and see what it was all about. I am such a kid, but I would LOVE to have those in my room! And yes, I absolutely know what it is like when the kids are with you and you just can't say no (especially when you kind of like them yourself! ;o) )

I'll have to join in on your Thrift Store Thursdays sometime. About a month ago I posted on some of my finds, but figured it might be a bit tardy to join in. If you're interested, I got some great deals...

BTW, I love your header photo...made me want to read what you had to say. :)
