Thrifty Thursday #6

1.  I totally got this glitter unicorn picture to put up next to my velvet Pegasus (so exciting!).
2.  This is an awesome owl plaque.  However, while I was getting it, a lady over on the next aisle of the thrift store was snatching up 3 or 4 pieces of Pyrex that match the bowl I have.  I am pretty sure they were cheap too.  I seriously almost cried.  I guess that's the way thrifting goes sometimes.
3.  Got this beautiful twin sized bedspread and haven't decided whether or not to put it in the shop.  I'm not sure I need another blanket.
4.  Yeah, I'm pretty sure I have wayyyy to much mushroom stuff, but I couldn't pass up this set for only $3.00 at a yard sale.  They match my kitchen colors perfectly!
5.  I pretty sure I've started a latchhook collection.  I picked up this lovely rug for about $1.00. 

Last, but not least, is the best find of the month.  And it's not even mine!  My husband is an avid video game collector (retro and rare) and was hunting around on Craigslist and found this....
An original 1980s Nintendo game display case that lights up and everything.  Apparently these are worth around $2,000.00, but we only paid around 1/20th of that.  Needless to say we are both giddy about it, considering it's the perfect thing to put video games in when we open our store.  It's kind of kick started our motivation into making our store a reality.  Yay for my husband's super thrifty find!!!



  1. I love that glitter unicorn. I have never come across pieces like that! I'm on the hunt for some sparkly animals. I really need to go thrifting with you!

  2. Wow, some amazing finds here. I love the glittery unicorn pic. I sympathise with your near miss on the pyrex. I'd probably would have been in tears! The game display is very exciting but then I get really excited about vintage shop that weird?! xx
