Thrifty Thursdays | Dearest Lou

Thrifty Thursdays

Some of you might have noticed I added a page called Thriftfanatics. I decided to create a page where all of you lovely thrifters can share your great thrift finds, outfits, and tips with the blogging world. I absolutely love reading about what gems other people find and about the thrift stores they go to.

To sign up, simply click on the page for instructions!

I've also decided to do a link up party every Thursday, "Thrifty Thursdays at Dearest Lou". Feel free to sign up to the link up party with any great thrift finds, outfits, or tips.

Here are some pretty things I've recently thrifted:
Pretty pillow $2
Textured blouse: $4
Creepy antique jewelry box: $9
The jewelry box wasn't recently thrifted but I couldn't help but include it. I thrifted it a couple of months ago when I went on a shopping trip with Kandice and Nat. Even though it was kind of pricey I decided I had to have it, especially since it plays a creepy little song when you open it.

Here are the guidelines for the link up:
  1. Link up to a specific blog post about thrifting.
  2. Snatch the button below and place it in your post. (If you don't want to add the button you can text link.)


Link parties will end every Sunday at 11:59PM!
Can't wait to see all of the things you guys have thrifted!


  1. YES this is so great. i might even have to link up every once in a while. i LOVE that box and think of it sometimes when i'm out and see other jewelry boxes that just don't compare AT ALL. i'm glad you bought it even for the high price of $9

    can't wait to see what else you find! i also love that it's a link up because i've thought about doing a thrift day of the week but... DUH.. i don't go thrifting all the freaking time so on the days when you can't provide any new finds, others will do that for you. genius! but i still think it's the same difference to include anything you've thrifted in the past that you feel deserves a spot here :)

  2. i'm loving the creepy jewelry box. haha! & that blouse is way cute...would be darling with a floral skirt of sorts. xo.

  3. That jewelry box looks SO beautiful! I can't imagine that lovely little thing making a creepy noise, haha. x

  4. lovely! and the jewel box is not creepy! hehe


  5. What a cute summery top.. And what's up Cecilia!??? Did you block me from your blog for a few months last year? Did it go private? Or did you get a new blog.. I'm soo confused.. lol
