Oh and who can forget the awful basement lighting shots in the Goodwill posting back in March of 2011?
Anywho, last week when I read over on YoungHouseLove that they had a new challenge- this time a THRIFT STORE, I jumped on that quicker than MACGyver at a Farmers Market (watching too much Hulu? Meh.). They called it the Macklemore Thrift Shop Challenge. And that song is my jam. Actually
Step#1: $20 in my pocket
Step#2: Spend it
Confession: This little gem wasn’t found at a thrift store, if she was I’m sure she would have been so much more than $20. Rather, she was found through Craigslist! True story- somehow I keep purchasing from the same lovely couple. Last summer we went to their garage sale and found some cute décor items. Then when we were updating our bathroom, we purchased a towel bar set. The only reason I know is because 1) I graduated with the lovely lady and 2) they purchased the ex-hubby’s parents house. Weird coincidences huh? Anywho, here is lovely proof:
I didn’t even try to talk them down because I just wanted the sucker before anyone else even had the chance. Plus, that’s such a steal in my book. It was already listed for two days before I found her. Immediately, before even asking the beau if he minded helping or even liked it, I responded to the listing. Let’s just say I
overly obsessed checked my
email constantly until receiving the response that it was still available.
That was Wednesday and immdediately scheduled a pick up on Friday. Boy was I nervous the
entire time that someone else would scoop it up before I got the chance. She's already in use and a post to come soon when the office is revealed.
Here are some other gems I found and picked up last Friday:
My office desk was a waaay better bargain. Who’s with me?
The same one posted over on the blog's facebook page to get opinions before I bought. Had to add some Photoshop flair.
Step#3: Find items from the song
And here are my two obnoxious finds and a bonus one for fun.
I had my sweet niece with and she was all about encouraging me to buy it. What can I say, her love of pink shields her fashion sense.
On our way out we spotted this little ditty:
Luggage with style- gotta love that Winnie and his pooh, wait that didn’t come out right.
And just for fun- this thing would totally come home with me if we had a young child.
I think it looks like a jet ski police boat.
Have you found any obnoxious outfits, or had some plain ‘ol fun at a thrift store?
