Welcome, welcome, welcome my friends. Another Thursday is upon us and we have some killer thrift scores in the hopper.

#thriftscorethursday Week 34 | Trisha from Black and White Obsession, Brynne's from The Gathered Home, and Guest Poster: Stephanie from Sandpaper and Glue

We shall begin with the features:

The entire photo is dreamy, am-I-right?! Especially that unique camera in the right corner. Arge, someday I will build my camera collection!!

If you’re not already following Kyla from House of Hipsters, you should be. Her outdoor fireplace is one not to miss!

Speaking of cameras...

It's probably against some kinda rule to shy away from our featuring our Guest Host. Especially since they're already going to show you some bomb-diggity thrift scores on their blog... in this case I just couldn't resist another vintage camera lover.

I may or may not have creepily invited her to a camera play date. #keepitweirdyo

Last but certainly not least...

This beauty barely requires any words. I mean just look at it in its Gold beauty.

And we'll close this post off with my finds:

Last week I showed you a Craigslist find that I bawled about regrettably passed up. I was originally planning to show off our trailer purchase beauty last week, but I didn’t want to jinx the sale, so without further adieu, here’s our treasure we scored on Craigslist this past weekend:
Before we dig in, I have to give the sellers mega props for being so descriptive. They had detailed pictures which showed the overall condition, disclosed that there was a (minor) cigarette burn, and best of all detailed dimensions. When we called we were sure to pass on the compliment- and they replied “it really saves everyone a round of headaches.” Indeed sir, you are correct.

I found it incredibly difficult to find the value of a similar dinette online as a new one (in fancy leather) would have been roughly $500-$1200. We figured since we're able to reuse the wood, the table, AND the cushions (with full intentions on recovering those suckers) it's completely worth it. Considering the cushions alone could have ran us over $150, it was a steal in our eyes.

Since this set originally came from a trailer that had a ‘bump’ out style kitchenette, we knew going into it that we would have to modify (read: hack saw into it) the dinette to fit our specific dimensions. To me, it didn’t matter since I knew I’d be giving the base a nice paint job and some reupholstering.

Right now I’m loving how Mandi’s Nugget is turning out and finding inspiration from this killer trailer from Hitch and Roll in the VR weekly newsletter. Ours is going to take faaarrr longer to complete (mostly because I’m indecisive), and won’t have Mandi's wicked awesome floors! Who knows where we’ll end up!

Our very first purchase for #projectskylarkreno. Not only did we score an amazing deal (in our eyes) but we met some lovely people, chit chatted their campground, found a potential camp site, ANND got use even more antsy to get our trailer done.

Well that’s all for week 34, my dearies! We thoroughly enjoy scrolling through your entries every week and hope to see your thrifted treasures. It’s pretty easy to play along:
  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 (+a third surprise guest host) dish out our favorite scores every week.

I know I owe you guys a “before” post and even a moodboard for our trailer, but like any update around here I wouldn’t hold your breath ha!
