It’s Friday and time to reveal what Kevin and I managed to scrounge up on our thrifting trip for Young House Love’s (unofficial) Mackelmore Thrift Shop Challenge!
We visited some of Dallas’ most, um, transitional neighborhoods in search of the perfect thrift shop with a
twenty dollar bill two tens in our pocket. This store, Rescue, benefits the Texas Regional Animal Shelter (so we were feeding our thrifting habit AND saving rescue dogs… a win-win, no?).
This thrift store was a veritable goldmine! They had everything. Mummies. Talevera sinks. Turquoise cowboy boots. Big Bird LPs. You name it, Rescue had it.
We found some moccasins (just like the song says) at the thrift store, but there was no way I was trying them on, let alone taking them home with us!
In the end, we scored two amazing finds. First, Kevin found an awesome vintage suitcase for $4.94. It couldn’t have been there long because it didn’t even have that classic thrift store funk going on.
I found some gorgeous mercury tea lights to use as the centerpiece for our new outside eating area… when we get it finished. My find was $6.94.
They look even better with tea lights in them.
From the side you can faintly see through them and they give off a soft, colorful glow.
We spent a total of about $12 on the Mackelmore Challenge and had a complete blast! I can’t wait to go thrifting again!
What did you find for the Mackelmore challenge? Did you use the full $20?
