Howdy everyone Happy Thursday! Hope you have a stellar weekend planned! Hopefully today’s features + finds will inspire you to go ‘gecha thrift on!

#thriftscorethursday Week 78 | 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: Colleenfrom 58 Water Street

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 Colleen from 58 Water Street! Believe me when I tell you that you're going to want to see black and white arrow stenciled wallBe still my heart, beating heart.

Let’s kick this party off with my find:

Shortly before the town converted to using the garbage bin pickup method, the sweetheart next-door neighbors had this perfectly usable faux mantle. I'm dying over the details especially those chunky pillars.

To save on space, we dismantled (har) it and threw it in the garage rafters for a few months. However, I have big plans to bust it out during this holiday season though. Pinterest is already showing me godzillion ideas.

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

Jen really scored big time with this stunning Teak Credenza. My favorite part is that it extends beyond the traditional corners of the piece. This seems to give it an illusion that it's even longer than it probably is.

Kristy snapped up one of the most perfect chairs ever made. Right up there with Ice Cream on a scorching hot day, no?

One of these weeks, I’m going to escape to Chicago and force Steph to show me the ropes in her neck of the woods. I may have to rent a U-Haul.

In case you missed it, Erica started a really fun conversation about the annoyances of those dang super-glued tags. It’s totally worth checking out (and her pretty cool Acrylic/ Lucite / Glass? Piece that’s almost ruined by, of all things, a SHARPIE?!). You can click here to get in on that convo.
Well that’s all for week 78, 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.

Have you scored big at any curb diving excursions lately? Do tell!
