Lookin' for a Come-Up: Part 1

If you missed Young House Love's Unofficial Macklemore Thrift Shop Challenge last week you need to get caught up. I first heard this song when Sherry and John posted it on YHL and I immediately fell in love. It's pretty great... well the edited version anyways!


First, let me come clean about my love for rap music. Yep ya'll I lurve me some good beats. Secondly, I love thrift shops. Everybody should love thrift stores. You can find some amazing stuff for CHEAP. Sometimes you can find a diamond in the rough and fall in love immediately. 

Well, this weekend I drove around to five shops. Two small thrift shops "DOWN THE ROAD", The Habitat Restore, The Salvation Army, and of course the Goodwill.


Thought I would jazz up my pics a bit..ya like? 

The first shops... just some GRAND-DAD CLOTHES!

At $150 I know this guy was more than my allowance but I have been in search for some larger pieces to refurb for my hizzle. I might go back for him soon!


 

Found this stud to..

 

Bernie was only $15.00. I took a picture so I could keep him with me forever. Am I the only one that finds his dark self a mystery? Where has he been? Where is he going?

Moving on...seeing how I forgot the challenge and was in deep thought about my own personal needs I pretty much failed the challenge so I am going back for round 2 next weekend! I think it would be fun to turn this into a scavenger hunt, don't you?

Well I posted some finds from the Goodwill a few months back here

 See what I did with some linen napkins I picked up for $1.00 here

And this lampshade...
I
Into this...

 Check out this transformation here.

 Of course I have linked this up to Young House Love. Pop over there and check out some amazing finds.

Did you get your crunk on and thrift this weekend? Any AMAZING finds?

  1. That's the thing with thrifting, you never know what you'll find, and sometimes the answer is nothing good! I love your lampshade transformation.

    1. Thanks so much Jill! Yeah I didn't really find anything I needed the first trip. However, I didn't have much time. I am going back for round two soon!
