Thrift Score Thursday…on a Friday

I'm sharing my #thriftscorethursday finds with you today even though it's Friday (yay!). I hope that doesn't throw your week off too much! ;)

Anyway, my boyfriend and I went thrifting for the first time in a long time on Wednesday night. A new Goodwill opened up and we wanted to check it out.

We came home with some frames:



And some books:





The large black frame was $4:



It's nice as-is but I plan on adding a little something-something to it soon! :)



The two orange frames were $1 each.



The nubby texture of the frames reminded me of a sea urchin's shell:



When I saw them I thought I would spray paint them a solid color (my boyfriend suggested gold because of the studs – love him!) but I think I may end up keeping them as-is:



The books I got are purely for styling purposes (is that bad/sad?):



I loved the colors of the "Running in Heels" book and couldn't resist the vintage vibe of the "Professional Guide's Manual":



I'm not an outdoorsy person but some of the topics in the manual are fascinating! The first section my boyfriend randomly turned to was how to kill a squirrel with a coat hanger sooo that gives you an idea of what the books about haha

Would you paint the orange frames or leave them as-is?

  1. Love those orange frames! Fabulous find. I would totally leave them as is.
    I'm in Tucson too, so I'm curious to know where that new Goodwill is located.?

    1. Thanks! The new Goodwill is at Golf Links and Houghton right across the street from the new Walmart. I think it's a few months old but it was new to us! :)

    1. Thanks! I think "books for looks" should become a trending hashtag :)

  6. Yay! I love your finds! I agree that those orange frames are pretty fantastic as-is! And I've totally been known to buy a book for its cover, only I already have a million books so I'm just kidding myself when I say it's "for styling purposes" ;)

  10. Wow! Were all those things really priced in 1992? Does Goodwill have huge warehouses full of unsold stuff somewhere?? DANG.
