The “Unofficial” Macklemore Thrift Shop Challenge By July / Food, Laughter and Happily Ever After/

This great solid wood trashcan was only marked $5.99... I got for $3... I plan to paint the sides a pink color and will add Emma’s monogram in purple vinyl. Brand new scented drawer liners for $4.99... I Paid $2.50. This will be perfect in Emma’s room as well This large grey plastic elephant was only 99 cents! I scored for 50 cents!!!

I’ve said it before and I will say it again a million times... I LOVE John and Sherry of Young House Love! I look at their blog daily... sometimes twice a day! Last Friday they issued a challenge based on the new Macklemore song. Step #1. Go to a thrift shop with – just as the chorus of the song says – “$20 in your pocket” and take a picture.

The first thing that caught my eye was this gorgeous bronze bowl... With a little rub n’ Buff I’m sure that I can get this thing shinning. I plan to use it on the counter in my bathroom. it can either hold small soaps or jewelry that I take off at night. At only $4.99 it was already a steal but I managed to only pay $2.50! ** more on that discount later!

I visited B Thrifty in Woodbridge, Virginia (13412 Jefferson Davis Hwy Woodbridge, VA 22191) this was my first time at this thrift store and after such a successful shopping trip it will not be my last. I was armed with my $20 and my trusty shopping partners (Hunter and my mom) and boy did we make out!

Do you want a discount??? B Thrifty offers 30% off every Monday!!! I bet you can guess where I will be every Monday! The best purchase of the day however was this GREAT chair!!! It was $9.99 and I paid $5.00! I couldn’t pass it up! I had been looking for a desk chair for Emma’s room for over a month and I knew that I could make this one work the second I saw it. Here is my final bill! Yes I got all of this... for only $15.75.

Here is what I did end up purchasing...

I mean how we could not find something good...look how massive this store is! Also, look at all of that furniture! Step #2 was to spend your $20 any way you’d like and photograph your spoils.

I received a 50% discount because the cashier asked what I was taking photos for and I mentioned that I was doing it for this blog! They are actually looking to start a blog themselves about projects that people have done from items found in their store and I plan to provide them with photos of what I did. I’m so excited to share all of the fun things that I will be able to do with the items I purchased... the-unofficial-macklemore-thriftshop.html
