Thrift Score Thursday #81 + Contributor Post for Remodelaholic


Hey Guys!

It's the most thrifty day of the week- Thursday! Before we jump into the fun and games of #ThriftScoreThursday, I needed to pop in this picture of a pretty amazing little space I threw together full of thrift scores with a recent DIY in the mix. I'm loving this suede embellished terracotta planter with a tribal inspired embellishment. I'm sharing the tutorial as well as the printable template for the tribal inspired design on Remodelaholic today. Go ahead and click to visit it (it'll open in a new window) so you can check that out after you're done reading here.


And now, let me share with you what I scored:

Little containers, little boxes, little baskets. They're all amazing, amiright? Since I've got lots of tiny things that need to be stored away, I need lots of little places to put them. No, not really at all. Most of these little trinket containers will forever be empty but I just love them! I think they're cute and so impractical they must all come home with me. Especially when they've got an interesting weave to it.


Or a cool design punched into the metal. I actually can think of a lot of practical uses for the brass one. Like burning incense or putting my jewelry in while I shower.


Do you fall for these little containers, too? Or are they just impractical for your storage needs. (maybe I could store sugar packets in the little basket.. ideas are starting to flow!)

And now to spread some love for fellow thrifters and their amazing thrift scores, here are my featured picks from the feed:

This one is a dead giveaway. How could I not feature my friend Nicole (of Design It Vintage) and this Amazing Macrame find. It's beautiful and I'm jealous. That's the story of my life ;) She also scored an amazing basket (this girl is my thrifting spirit animal, I tell ya).

I already had white bedding with a big puffy down comforter and duvet, but something about this vintage hobnail bedspread just looks so simple and inviting!

  • Each week, Trisha from Black and White Obsession, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, Brynne from The Gathered Home, Myself (A Designer At Home) and occassionally a guest co-host will pick a favorite thrift score or two to feature! So please note that by linking up with #thriftscorethursday, you are giving us permission to share your finds via social media or on our blogs.

  1. Such a great photo from Suite 22 -- It'd make great art! Love all the other finds, too!

  2. i am dying over your description of that room!!! haha! love it! :) and love all your little trinket boxes! :)

  3. So jealous of your cute trinket boxes, especially that brass one!

  4. Right?! It's little clasp sings, "take me homeeee."

  5. First, I love your terracotta pot, I'm heading over to check out how you made it.
    Second, I'm a trinket box kinda girl too.... I love the incense box. Super Cool!
    And third, Thank you so much for having me as a guest host. It was so much fun, I wanna do it again!

  6. Ha, wouldn't it? Thanks so much for stopping by.

  7. Thanks, Emily! I'm seriously so stoked you joined us!

  8. I love your style Corinna! What great finds you have (always). Thanks for featuring my score!!! You rock girl, and those baskets are really pretty. I love it here... :)

  9. Um, I'm sure if we all put our brains together we can come up with perfectly practical ways to use ALL THE LITTLE TRINKET BOXES! Because they are so cute! But I'll admit, I'm usually stumped :) Besides the usual suspects of jewelry and perhaps hair accessories, I have a hard time coming up with reasons to justify bring them home. But they are sooo cute!


Let’s hear from you!
