Nifty Thrifty Lovely



I know Missa from the gorgeous and so sweet and inspiring blog Thrift Candy, already did a post like this (a couple of them, actally), but i am just shamelessly copying here and do the same. Ha!

Here are some of the great thifted things other people found and posted a picture of in the Flickr group Nifty Thrift.
I will be posting some of my thrifted things on there too...







Do you also thrift?
I am curious if other people are as addicted as i am to go thrifting at least once a week...
Tell me about your great finds (or show them on your blog, of course, if you'd like!)

There isn't many places to thrift where i live that aren't completely overpriced. However, i bought a lovely chesterfield chair from ebay that was antique, is it thrifting i'm not sure?

Wow Xax, that sounds great!
I don't know the exact meaning of the word thrifting, for me it is just looking for vintage, secondhand and old stuff. Mainly in thriftshops, the Salvastion Army and on secondhand markets and garage sales.
But why not thrifting om Ebay? ;)

Hi Mila! Here in Santiago de Chile we have a lot of fleamarkets, I love them. I look at the dictonary the word thriftshop and of course is the same concept, sell second hand objects and stuff ( I did this because I didn´t know what the word means, so thanks another word that I have learned) In spanish is "mercado de pulgas". I posted while ago in my blog about a beautiful fleamarket near my home, you would love it!

I love thrifting - most of my clothes come to me that way. I don't really thrift things other than clothes these days because we have such a small apartment - but I have found lots of things in the past.

I love going thrift shopping! I actually found the coolest vessels at Goodwill for almost nothing! I'm more proud of them than any of my more expensive pieces!
