I have learned to appreciate old things. Old furniture, old homes, and old clothes. I use to get this high feeling whenever I would buy myself something new. Now I get that same feeling whenever I find a great vintage buy.
Lately, my roommates and I have been in a really-excited-for-Christmas mood. We have been decorating our apartment. I really wanted to contribute; however, money is obviously tight for a college student like myself.
SO I had this bright idea that The Thrift Shop here in Carbondale may have a few things. Specifically, I was looking for a square red table cloth and other odds and ends.
I walked in and to my left there were TONS of Christmas decorations!!! I about fainted. Not only that by they had a red tablecloth, perfect size, for $1.49!
We will be adding more decorations..but for now..it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around our apartment.
The kitchen… lots of glittery things!
The sitting area…
The living room…
The bathroom…(who doesn’t wanna see a little snowman every time they go to wash their hands?)
And last but not least, our nativity set…
Ta da! Both nifty and thrifty. I hope to always do things for less. You can make a home look cute and still be thrifty.
Be looking for my Christmas tree post! We will be putting it up soon.
