7 #thriftscorethursday Vintage Typewriters

Can I get a little raise the roof action for this week’s #thriftscorethursday? I mean y’all really know how to get someone to waste the day away, in a totally drool-tastic way of course!! I think this week we’ve had the most submissions to date (22 on Instagram and four on Twitter) yet!!

#thriftscorethursday Week 9 | Trisha from Black and White Obsession, Brynne's from The Gathered Home, and Megan from Rental Revival

If you’re new around these areas, Brynne from The Gathered Home, Megan from Rental Revival, and I created this little challenge- to get out there and scour your thrift stores, dumpsters, antique stores, auctions, estate sales, or anywhere else second hand. These finds can be something you scored (probably an amazing deal), left behind, or laughed so hard your face muscles hurt. Snap a photo and hashtag #thriftscorethursday on Instagram or #thriftscorethursday on Twitter.  We’ll mingle and chuckle right along with you. Who knows, maybe you’ll find some new Insta-friends!!


Are you ready for this week’s features?!

Be still my beating geometric heart! My girl Sammi from Every Home is A Castle, remember her Sunburst Mirror she shared with us?, scooped up this spiky 3D star lamp. Envious doesn’t quite cover it! Pottery Barn sells a similar lamp for $149, and I’m betting Sammi scored hers for a fraction of the cost (here’s to hoping she’ll divulge more in the comments below).

I cannot get over the calming colors, the perfect textures, the angle of the shot, and the flawless details of this vintage vignette. Imagine that image along the walls of an art gallery. You simply must check out the rest of her dreamy photos, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Honorable mention: It should probably be frowned upon to choose a fellow Host, Megan, but I just couldn’t resist that jazzercising bear (Ok, I know it’s tennis but it totally looks like the after activity)! I’m particularly fond her clever nod to Vintage Revivals hashtag-athon #myvintagerevivals, and of course Mandi’s stance on oldy moldy design trends (look at me talking about her like she’s the knick to my knack).

And now for my #thriftscorethursday find, this week:

I’ve been blessed to find not one, but TWO vintage typewriters over the course of these 9 weeks. They really hold a special place in my heart and always remind me of my pops with his early morning punch, punch, punchety punch punch, zzzzzzt noises. Bonus overshare: my pops is so cool, they let him have his typewriter when he retired.

This particular one was $30, on the higher side since I’m so cheap. Plus we’re not ready to own one yet. When we re-do our upstairs to include a real office, I’d love to incorporate one to add a slight vintage vibe and bring back fond memories.

This much more vintage typewriter (in my opinion), zzzt’d in at a healthier wallet friendly, $12.99. Definitely something I’m sad to have missed out on. Of course there will be more opportunities in the big world of thrifting!

For now, they’ll be sweetly whispering sweet nothings as I pass them by.

That’s it for week 9, my friends! Here’s a quick list (for those Type-A’s like me) to join in on the best hashtag party ever:
  1. Snap a photo of something that catches your eye or you decided to splurge on from anyplace secondhand (Craigslist, Yard Sales, Auctions, etc).
  2. Share your photo with the hashtag #thriftscorethursday on Instagram (if your profile is public) and/or Twitter, any day of the week!
You could be featured next Thursday as your hosts Brynne, Megan and I dish out our favorite scores every week.

Are you in love with the Spiky Star lamp? Do you wish you had a collection of typewriters?!

  1. I'm jealous that your local thriftstores have typewriters! I've never seen one out and about thrifting around here. You could totally get that second typewriter snapshot printed & frame it!
