3 #thriftscorethursday Smith-Corona Typewriter

Welcome to #thriftscorethursday, can you believe we’ve been at this little ditty for 73 weeks now?!

#thriftscorethursday Week 73 | 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: Kris from Driven by Decor

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 to Kris from Driven by Decor!

Let’s kick this party off with my find:

As you may recall, this isn't my first typewriter rodeo. Here you will see the super vintage beauty I scored during one if the best thrifting weekends I've ever had. And here you can spot two that I passed up with the excuse that I didn't have the room. But when I came across this latest beauty, I just couldn't resist...

On a random Goodwill run, I spotted this pristine Smith-Corona Classic 12 typewriter beauty as I was just about to leave empty handed. Knowing that this particular store was usually on the pricier side, I had very low expectations when I flipped the case over. To my surprise it was less than $5.

A quick google search has them estimated from $85-$150, not a bad return on investment if she were to ever over stay her welcome...

This week I just couldn’t narrow down the choices (they were just so stinkin’ good!), so here are my top FOUR features this week:

Can you believe Erica was able to score this retro side table at an estate sale for just $30?! It is just so, so good!

That hippies sign is just too fun and that bowl- it definitely steals my black and white (er blue?) heart!

We all know Target is pretty amazing as far as having the cutest accessories. But they're even more amazing when they send their castaways to area Goodwills (as opposed to just tossing them) to give pieces the second shot they deserve. Stephanie was able to scoop up this glorious Nate Berkus snake bowl for less than the price of a Starbucks coffee.

Last, but certainly not least, Nancy was able to scoop up that marvelous designer handbag for a fraction of retail cost. Sure it's slightly used but can you even tell after a few weeks of use?! Double props for those English rye and horn pipe decanters in the back as well.

Well that’s all for week 73, 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.

Thanks for stopping by!!
