Hello everyone! Today, I wanted to take you on a thrifty excursion outside of the thrift stores. Shocking, I know. I have had a lot of people tell me that their thrift stores just aren't as good where they live. Perhaps they live in a smaller area where there just isn't as much merchandise. Whatever the reason, I wanted to encourage you and take you outside the thrift stores and talk about some great finds at spectacular prices. One of my favorite stores is World Market, I love that they always have unique finds and I really like their global grocery items for putting a twist on a gathering! No, World Market isn't paying me to say these things :) These opinions are strictly my own. I just wanted you to think outside the thrift store box!
Here are a few of my favorite items from the store.
First up, I recently found this great flatware at their store at a GREAT clearance price!
$1.92 for a set of 4!!! That's less than .50 cents per piece! You could not do better than that a thrift store! I recently purchased these and love them. I think they are more beautiful in person!
Next up is their Buffet Napkins!
Here's why I love them....
First of all, they are just $9.99 for a set of six!
They come in a variety of colors, so they are perfect for whatever color scheme your home or party may have. Also, they are great for gift giving! I think they would make a perfect hostess gift. The other thing I love about them is the solid color, it makes them the perfect option for personalization. Monogram them, add some pompom trim or Greek key, the options are really endless! Personally, the Pink Sangria Buffet Napkins are on my list of things to pick up soon. I think they would look perfect with the cobalt blue Summer plates I'm using on my enclosed porch!
Next up is their white teapots. There are a variety to choose from, but this little guy is my favorite!
How cute and cheerful is this little elephant teapot? So cute! We're big tea drinkers around here and I think this one is fun enough for the kids to love but chic enough for adults to appreciate.
At just $12.99 he's a bargain too!
Finally, on my short list of favorites is the Cotton Velvet Throw Pillows.
Again, the price is outstanding! $9.99 for an 18 x 18 throw pillow is great! Like with the napkins, they come in a variety of colors, so you're sure to find something for your décor. The cover zips off, which is fantastic for a number of reasons. If you have kids, company or husbands you need stuff that is easily washable. Also, it makes it perfect for adding your own flair. I think these would look fantastic monogrammed and placed on accent chairs or a bed. Personally, I think I may end up getting two of these for the Study and adding some trim to them.
If you're in the market for some outdoor things to spruce up your Summer parties, they are currently having a HUGE outdoor blowout sale! I hope you find some great things at a fantastic price! If you do, I would love to hear about it!
Thrifty finds are everywhere! I hope this encouraged you to think outside the thrift store box!
