I bought more thrift store design books

Hello, hello! It's another lovely Thursday which means we have an excellent excuse to thrift and chat thrifting. My recent purchase is more books. More design books. I tried a different thrift store than I normally go to and found 4 fabulous new books for my collection.

My favorite is "decorating with plants and flowers." Make sure you pop over to Instagram today so you can catch the gloriousness of this book! @thebohoabode

Oh, and I know I just shared the bar cart a few weeks ago but musical furniture is in full force over here and voila! Changes...

There's always so much to oggle over in the TST feed! Here are 2 of my favorites:

Wanna Play? Here’s The Rules!

  • We want you to participate! Hit up your local thrift stores, craigslist, yard sales, estate sales, side of the road, anything! Thrifty doesn’t necessarily mean from a thrift store. We want to see your good deals, wacky finds and treasures.
  • Don’t feel like you need to save those finds for Thursdays! Yes, features are shared on our blogs and Instagram on Thursdays, but we’re all checking in on (and using!) the hashtag all week long. So, when you see/find it, feel free to share it!
  • Want to get featured? Add the #thriftscorethursdsay hashtag, Follow the hosts (@the_gathered_home, @cassie_bustamante, @thebohoabode and @maggieoverbystudios) and tag a friend to play along, too!
  • Each week, Cassie from Cassie Bustamante, Brynne from The Gathered Home, Maggie fromMaggie Overby Studios and Myself (The Boho Abode) 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. 
The best part? There are 4 regular posts to check out every Thursday! Yup, you’ve got more thrift scores to look at. I know you’re not disappointed. Ha. Click on my beautiful cohost’s faces below to check out what they’ve scored and featured.


  1. love that brass sculpture and was so close to featuring it!

  2. Fun! I've been keeping my eyes out for vintage decorating books too - I have one from the 40's and one from the 50's now and it is SO fun to flip through and see how design has changed and then how it's stayed the same! Hopefully I'll be able to round out my collection with a few more decades! :D

  3. I love a good design coffee book, and I love it even more when it comes from a thrift store! I have found so many good ones for 5$ as opposed to the full price at the book store. #thriftscoresarethebestscores


Let’s hear from you!
