7 #thriftscorethursday Fly Like an Eagle

It has been an unbelievably busy and beautiful summer here so far in the Northern Mid West. I hope you all have been finding some killer deals at yard sales!

#thriftscorethursday Week 72 | Trisha from Black and White Obsession, Brynne's from The Gathered Home, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, Corinna from For My Love Of, and Guest Poster: Jess from Domicile 37

If you're new 'round here, my co-hosts Brynne from The Gathered Home, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, and Corinna from For My Love Of and I, invite you to play along with our fun hashtag party on Instagram. The rules are simple: snap a pic of your thrifted treasure and throw the #thriftscorethursday hashtag so our hosts, followers, and amazing TST community can marvel at your goodies.

Occasionally, we're blessed to have a few of our favorite hashtag blogger friends guest hosting alongside us. This week, please give a warm welcome back to Jess from Domicile 37!

Let’s kick this party off with my short story:

#thriftscorethursday Week 72 Storage Unit Scores

So throughout #thriftscorethursday history, I’ve been alluding to the fact that we bid and won a storage unit during a repo-auction. We scored big time with a unit stuffed FULL of mirrors, frames, a few pieces of furniture, all for the raw price of $50. Just about everything in the photo above has hailed from that auction, with the exception of the wine bucket, the concrete mixer, and a few others. Funny thing is, almost everything you see was thrifted, gifted, or curbside-free.

If you look to the right in all of that mess, there is a chalky blue dresser and upon opening the drawer, I found this bronze-y Eagle pennant:

Although well built and in very good condition, it is hollow. That teeny fact doesn't seem to distract from its beauty though.

I think the wing-stretched eagle would pair nicely with my federal mirror. Can you just see a leggy modern buffet with the mirror above it and the eagle atop some vintage books? Does that picture remind you of something? That’s because last week, Brynne finally scored her own federal mirror and styled hers in a similar manner. Interestingly enough, Cassie has the mirror too! Apparently of all our #thriftscorethursday hosts, Corinna is the slacker (still love ya girl!).

And now for the dreamy features from our #thriftscorethursday Instagram crowd:

Did you just fall hard for that white wicker style hanging lamp on the right? I know I did!

Rachel was able to snatch these guys up from a BARN! Also, she requested a little help, should she use the metal on on the left as a lamp or convert it into a hanging planter?

I've witnessed many a sunburst mirrors in my day, but this one just commands your undivided attention.

Doesn't this Lucite Apple Paperweight look mighty delicious?! I've said it before and I'll say it again, Jenn from Suite22Antiques has impeccable taste. She also has killer photography, so you should just get it over with and click on over to begin your thrift envy.

Well that’s all for week 72, 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, Garage Sales, 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, Cassie, Corinna, and I (+a surprise guest host) dish out our favorite scores every week.

Thank you for stopping by this week!

  1. love your eagle! that mirror is amazing! AND i just spray painted the EXACT same pendant light (mine was that yellow!) emerald green and it's hanging over the vignette i shared on my post today! ha!

  2. Your eagle is so fun! I always get excited when I find a treasure in the drawer of a thrifted/Craigslisted piece, but it's usually like a fun scrap of paper from the 1960's, not an entire gold bird! Love it! :D
    And $50 for an entire storage unit's worth of stuff?! I need to get in on this craziness!

    1. Yeah, it was a few years ago now, before the Storage Wars show became popular in our area. Only a friend of ours and us were there to bid. It was quite the thrill.

  3. Oh man! That sunburst mirror is beautiful!

  4. I am so loving that eagle! So patriotic! I see a lot of great pieces in your storage bin, excited to see what you do with it!

  5. STOP IT!!! YOU GOT ALL OF THAT FOR $50 BUCKS?! Crazy-Insane.
