I decided to join in on the fun over at blog, Young House Love, for their thrift shop challenge! This was so up my alley!
If you haven’t heard the song, take a listen! I’m not really into rap but I love this song — seriously how many songs can you name that are about rocking thrift store finds?! Beware it’s catchy (and this is the clean version, but it’s not thaaat clean).
The challenge is as follows:
Step #1. Go to a thrift shop with – just as the chorus of the song says – “$20 in your pocket” and take a picture.
Step #2. Spend that $20 any way you’d like and photograph your spoils.
Step #3. Find one item (or more) referenced in the song and snap a pic.
I went to my trusty Value Village ready to “pop some tags” with $20.
“I’m in this big a$$ coat from that thrift shop down the road” No shortage of coats like this in Wisconsin!
“They had a broken keyboard, I bought a broken keyboard.”
Now for what I actually bought:
A pillow form.
8 embroidery hoops! I’m doing some wall art with these babies!
My husband and I had lots of laughs doing this and rocking out to the song! If you want to get in on the fun too, the challenge is still open and you can add your link here.
Have you had some good recent thrift store finds?
