To join in the fun I hit up two Habitat for Humanity ReStores (who were offering great discounts) and got some great thrifty finds!
At the downtown Portland location, I grabbed some needed supplies such as caulk, grout, and a little terra cotta pot. I also snagged this old ladder.
I love it! I’m not entirely sure what I’ll do with it, but I’m thinking something with hanging plants or candles on the deck.
My last find at that store was this lonely knob.
The amazing thing about finding this knob is that I got a dresser off Craigslist for 10 bucks because it was missing a knob. And I found it! So now instead of having to buy 8 new ones, I got one for 50 cents!
After I finished shopping downtown, I headed to the Beaverton ReStore where I met fellow Oregon blogger Denise of Pink Postcard. She is great! It was the first time I’d met another home blogger and it was so fun! We didn’t have a ton of time but it was great to chat for a bit and compare purchases.
Denise had been at the store for the morning so she pointed out this great find.
I thought about buying it but couldn’t pull the trigger. Neither could Denise. She did get some great deals though! Go check out her blog, Pink Postcard!
I got this old shutter/cabinet door thing. Not sure what I’m going to do with it yet.
And this fun little lantern (its battery operated!).
But my best buy of all was this bad boy.
I guess technically its these bad boys. Even though we’re so far from needing appliances in our not-yet-started kitchen remodel, I had to snag this microwave and wall oven. (Don’t worry, I called and
They’re GE and had been installed in someone’s home but never used (even still had the manuals!), and I got both of them for $570!
The oven alone retails for over $1500. What a steal! I’m so excited about it. That’s $1000 off the oven and throwing in the microwave for free! I am so so happy :)
Thank you to the Habitat for Humanity ReStores, Denise from Pink Postcard, and my beautiful cousin Hannah for helping me celebrate! I had such fun on the first I Love Thrifting day.
How did you celebrate I <3 Thrifting?
