4 #thriftscorethursday Copper Cookware

Knock knock is this thing on? Goodness Gracious friends, it has been a very long time, how have you been? I hope your holidays treated you well. I know it’s well into January, and I don’t know about you but I’m still dreaming of those Christmassy moments of the recent past, it sure helps one get though the slow and bitter cold of January. I hear there’s a decent storm headed toward the east coast, and I’m hoping it’s far less extreme than predicted.

It’s been more than crazytown over here, but in the best ways possible. I could not wait to get back into the thrifting game though. In fact, I never really stopped thrifting. Brynne, can attest to the few times I popped in and showed her things I was obsession about. She may or may not have talked me into a few said things. Oh how living vicariously through others makes our own hoarding habits easier, no? #keeptellingyourselfthat Any who, I’m so excited that you’re here today!! Who is ready to get to the goodies this week?

#thriftscorethursday Week 95 | Trisha from Black and White Obsession, Brynne's from The Gathered Home, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, and Corinna from A Designer At Home

If you're new 'round here, my co-hosts Brynne from The Gathered Home, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, and Corinna from A Designer At Home 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.

Let’s kick this party off with my find:

#thriftscorethursday Week 95 Copper Cookware | www.blackandwhiteobsession.com

Quick story: Just an ordinary quick thrifty day, browsing for a mandatory ugly Christmas sweater for the new job right after work (about a half hour until Goodwill closing time). No dice. So naturally I wander to the homegoods section. I spy, one, then two, three, then the enitre set (plus two handled skillets, not shown) of copper bakeware.

Without a question, I gently tossed them in my cart. Once I got to the checkout, for some reason, I gawked at the price (around $25 for the set) and imagined buyers remorse aka: my roommate-will-kill-me-if I bring anything else home remorse.

The next morning I sent Brynne an-in-store-crappy shot and she practically demanded I go back and fetch them. Ok that's a bit dramatic, but let's just say a second eye definitely changed my mind. I ran it passed the roommate, to my surprise, they passed with flying colors.

A day or so passed (darn work schedule) and I was DYING to get back to the store hoping the set was still there. After a few moments of some serious hunting and thrift-panic, I spotted my beautiful set. Of course they weren't in the original isle and were sprawled across a few shelves (perhaps that was to my benefit). In the cart they went, with a happy skip/mad dash to the checkout I went.

I'm still thanking my lucky thrifting angels for this one...

And for this weeks #thriftscorethursday features, well, let's just say I couldn't back away from all the glorious metals:

Jennifer has not just one but TWO copper finds this week. Starting with this pair of copper ice scoops. Where do I even begin, how about pure envy?

If those guys weren't enough, Jennifer hits you with a punch in the face as she shares an entire bar set including a tray and pitcher. Sa-woon. Bravo Jennifer, Bravo!

Last but not least, I know it's not quite copper, but Doug's mint-condition hexagon umbrella stand is pretty much copper's fun-loving cousin, Mr. Brass. Can you really get over the sleek design with the simple handle and that top lip? Flawless.

Sure I already got a killer deal on my umbrella stand (I still plan on updating btw), The only question that remains: Can you really have too many pretty pieces in a house?

Well that’s all for week 95, 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:
