recently thrifted

I’ve been in a bit of bling-buying mood recently, which usually spells t-r-o-u-b-l-e for my bank account. Instead of picking up the first sparkly thing that caught my eye at the thrifts (or 10 of them), I vowed to seek out well-made pieces that would fill a need in my collection and/or complement what I already have. Here are three of my favorite finds…

And I can’t even explain how delicate these shell earrings are ($10). Both were purchased from the lovely Holly at yesterdays’ Double Peace Studio’s pop-up.

When I spotted this beauty with abalone inlay ($12) at Second Début‘s St. Louis Park location, I had not choice but to snap it up.

  1. That chain fits that pendant perfectly. The pendant is on the chunkier side so the thicker chain fits it. I’d say keep it and save the money you were going to spend on a new chain on another great thrifted piece! I love seeing your deals, they inspire me. I also love learning about new thrifting adventures from you. I’m trying to pass my love for second-hand on to my 3-year-old daughter. I use your posts to plan our “thrifting adventure” days. So far she loves it! I’ve been following your blog for a few years now, thanks for the great reads!
