Thrift Share: The Vintage Owl Haul


I'm currently thrifting for essentials only, but the vintage owl jars above were a happy accident. On the way to the thrift store with friends these owls sat on a table in a park seconds from my apartment; unique, beaming, tempting.

I stopped the car, shamelessly asked for a birthday discount and got the entire set of vintage owl jars for $10.00. The lamp was $7.00, perfect for my desk at work.



Book, bowls, snacks, apron, vintage fabric, tea, yay!

The Birthday: October 16th was my birthday. Above is a photograph of the birthday gifts from my friends. The small get-together this weekend was resplendent. We scarfed pizza, beer, wine and cheesecake while ruthlessly mocking the Nightmare on Elm Street Remake. I love each gift, my friends know me so well!

Goals for Thriftcore: Twenty-four is a strange age. It feels infinitely older than twenty-three; and I'm more driven than ever to succeed at my goals. The expense of this drive is loosing most of the perpetual happiness I used to feel (it's been replaced with stress, anxiety). One of my goal is to continue writing quality content for this blog.

  3. Ok, that is really weird. Because those owl jars were sitting in a thrift store near me just last week! I only passed them up because they wanted more than I was willing to pay. They caught my eye because they're really cute though.

    Happy birthday!

  4. Happy Birthday!

    I have not had a chance to thrift lately so am living vicariously through others online finds.
    There is nothing wrong about asking for a discount, birthday, in my case "old lady" type, end of season, or anything else you can think of to make a seller smile and feel good about the transaction. Either they are looking to make room in their home or make a profit and for either of these to happen a sale is necessary. I never believe a price is firm, even if a seller thinks it is.

  5. dogsmom- thank you for the "happy birthday". I always try to sneak discounts too, it NEVER hurts to ask. You usually get the discount.
