Did you know there’s such thing as National Thrift Shop Day?! It’s my next favorite day after Christmas. Heck it is like Christmas for this thrift store junkie. Mark it down people, August 17th is National Thrift Shop Day so get in your car (or truck) and head to your local Value Village. If you stop by here often you know that I’m a bit of a thrift store addict and my loft is full of thrifted treasures.
In honor of the holiday (yes, it’s a holiday to me) I thought I would share with you one of my recent and favorite thrift store scores. Over the past year I’ve been lucky enough to find these three amazing globes at Value Village. Sure, you can find them in stores these days but they just aren’t worn in or built the same as the ol’school ones. Aren’t they pretty?
I held out until I found ones that were different enough but still looked great. I’m looking for different sizes and colors. If I ever find an authentic black one, my mission will be complete. The beige one is my latest find on my last trip to Value Village and I think it may be my favorite. What do you think?
Then there’s this small guy that is kinda dirty but I like it like that. Gross? Maybe but I prefer to call it ‘character’.
Then this big guy was my first find and it’s a really fancy one that rotates in multiple directions.
Here you can see how they fit perfectly on my fire mantle with all my other vintage collections including my shelf of milk glass that I also picked up over the years while shopping the aisles of Value Village.
Not only do I like the throwback style but it’s about the hunt for me. And apparently I’m not alone because according to some very official thrift shopping stats that’s one of the main reasons people like to shop at thrift stores, along with affordability of course.
So get your map out, find all the Value Villages within driving distance and plan a little National Thrift Shop Day road trip for Monday, August 17th. That’s what me and some of my thrift-o-holic blog pals will be doing. Check out their awesome finds and DIY’s here:
