Helllllo Thursday, how you doin?! One more day until the weekend annnd it’s #thriftscorethursday! My favorite blogging day of the week. This week’s score is certainly not the prettiest of photos but just wait until you see what kinda deal I spotted!!

Wowza what a week!!

And now back to your regularly scheduled program:
#thriftscorethursday Week 21 | Trisha from Black and White Obsession and Brynne from The Gathered Home

Brynne from The Gathered Home and I love thrifting so much that we started this weekly challenge 22 weeks ago showing off the absolute bargains we’ve spotted or purchased.

The best part has been thumbing through Instagram every week checking out the drool-worthy pieces you, our dear friends, come across. So forewarned eye candy ahead--} #thriftscorethursday (on Instagram).

Each week we pick our favorites and this week I found my self drooling over:

#thriftscorethursday Week 21 | Instagram user: urvintagegirl shows off this Leather Executive Chair

Can you believe Kim from Vival Vintage For Your Home spotted this this leather chair for only $8.75?! Sure there’s a minor tear on the arm but nothing a strategically placed patch couldn’t fix. 

Next up:

Girl knows how to rock a staging session! I mean just look at those layers. And that precious deer on top. Aislinn totally nailed it! Of course you know (my obsession with glass) those decanters drew me in right away. I have a ton of those in storage that I simply must re-discover one of these days…

Really makes me want to bust out the camera, dig out some cute tables, and get my vignette on.

Again shield your eyes for the not-so-hot photo skills:

So I almost missed this bad boy on my way out of my local Salvation Army Resale shop. It was in the ‘processing’ room, which usually has some type of sign saying “employees only.” Heck that’s never stopped me from inquiring before. Anyway, the sign said:
#thriftscorethursday Week 21- $5 Pool Table | www.blackandwhiteobsession.com

Yes, that’s a decent condition pool table for $5. Yes it really did measure 8ft by 5ft. I immediately called the beau but he was working (psht, how dare he). One of the Resale workers noticed my curiosity and said “yeah that thing has been here forever, they keep marking it down and there haven’t been any takers.” “Everyone who is interested doesn’t have the proper transportation since it’s so large.” I told her I was quite interested and that we had adequate transportation so they may have a lucky new owner.

Later that evening I tried to convince the beau, by telling him how he could whip up some gorgeous legs (the dude has mad skills in wood crafting) and how it’d be perfect for our garage ‘loft’ someday. Ultimately we decided we didn’t have the proper storage at this time. Rats! #someday #catchandrelease

Well that’s all for week 21, my dearies! I hope you’ll play along this week! It’s crazy easy:
  1. Snap a photo of something that catches your eye or you decided to splurge on from anyplace secondhand (Craigslist, Thrift Stores, 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 and I dish out our favorite scores every week.

Do you find yourself singing “the one that got away” after leaving a piece behind?

  1. Wow, I can't believe the pool table was marked to $5! Crazy. Love the shelf that was featured!

    1. Totally crazy!! I sniffle a little just thinking about it!

  2. Great finds! Great finds...everything is truly worth drooling over. I am sitting here shocked that you were able to buy a pool table for only $5!

    1. We actually had to pass since we didn't have adequate room but we're keeping our eyes peeled for another some day!!

  3. What? $5 pool table?! I too would have nowhere to put it, but I would be sooo tempted!!!

  4. I, too, would have nowhere to put the pool table - but sooooo tempting!! My husband would probably insist and put it on the front porch or something LOL
