COOKERS AND PICTURES & VINTAGE, OH MY!
Happy Thursday Thrift Fans! Here at Thrift Town, we love hearing from you, our loyal and thrifty customers. Itâ€™s so great to see pictures & hear the stories behind the treasures you find and the creative ways you incorporate them into your lives. Thrift Townâ€™s quarterlyÂ â€śWhat a Findâ€ťÂ contest is a great way for us to show off what you all have sent in and celebrate thrift together.
As always, it was hard to choose for each category, but we’ve narrowed it down and notified the lucky winners. Whether itâ€™s finding that special piece for your special interest, getting stylish high-end fashion for way less, or using thrifted items as the starting point for your artistic creations, our winners show off what we love about shopping secondhand at Thrift Town.
Each of our featured winners received a $25 Thrift Town Gift Card prize.
This is an ongoing contest for us, so if you have something fabulous to share
â€“ send it in!Â We just debuted a new category;Â ”What the Thrift?Â Craziest ThriftÂ Find!”
â€”â€”â€”AND THE WINNERS ARE â€”â€”â€”â€“
BEST Housewares :Â Eva A. fromÂ Grand Prairie, TX
My pressure cooker I had for 12 years blew up on me one day. Shortly after, Â I went to Thrift Town and walked by the house wares on my way to the baby clothes. I saw something that caught my eye and lo and behold it was a brand new pressure cooker.
Even better: you can choose to use it as a pressure cooker, slow cooker or just use it as a warmer. I went home and looked it up online and saw that it sells on QVC for $120.00!Â The Thrift town price was $24.95, but I paid and used my Super Shopper card and got $10.00 off. It truly was a GREAT FIND!
I’d like to think that Thrift Town puts the FUN back in Functional. Finding great housewares is such a gratifying thing: great price & value on something you need. Enojy!
BEST Collectible:Â Holle C., El Sobrante, CA
Being a hula dancer and a Hawaiian at heart, I was thrilled to find this beautiful portrait!
It has a rare koa wood frame and is in wonderful condition for only $19.99!
I have been researching to try and find who this beauty may be, but haven’t found anything, yet…
She’sÂ now in my sewing room keeping me company while I work on my hula and historic inspired creations.Â I just love Thrift Town and visit whenever I can.
Â Mahalo nui loa! (Thank you very much!)
Just goes to show – Thrift Town has something for almost any style, taste, hobby or pastime (hula dancing!). Thanks for being a loyal customer.
Best DIY: Â Jennifer H. Arlington, TX
I was wandering around the store looking for items that I could maybe freshen up for my and my boyfriend’s new apartment when I came across this 70s inspired side table/coffee table for only $7.99!
I was so intrigued by the 2 levels and the shape of the legs. I walked away to look at other items, but I was just drawn back to the table. I grabbed it up and within a couple of days I had this beautiful AFTER creation!
Our customersâ€™ creativity is always so fun to see!
Weâ€™re happy to be the starting point for many creative endeavors.
BEST FASHION FIND: Joseph T., Â North Richland Hills, TX
Best Bargain Winner: Sylvie S., El Sobrante, CA
First off, I want to tell you what a H-U-G-E fan I am of Thrift Town.Â IÂ LOVEÂ LOVEÂ LOVEÂ you guys!
My incredible find: An exquisitely gorgeous vintage woman’s SalvatoreÂ FerragamoÂ coat.
It’s a rich raspberry red color and soft unlined wool.
The cut is interesting with raglan-type sleeves that you can roll up. Â The buttons have theÂ FerragamoÂ logo on them. Â This coat is a stunner. Â The best part — Thrift Town does it again. Â It cost me a whopping measly $12.50 (it was marked down half price from $24.99). Â WHAT A DEAL!!! Â – a newÂ FerragamoÂ coat can be a couple thousand bucks, not that you could even normally buy this coat because it’s vintage.
Itâ€™s so great when a customer comes in, finds something they love, and it also ends up being really valuable. Itâ€™s like a double-win. Enjoy your jacket!
Congrats again to all our winners! You always inspire us.
Itâ€™s wonderful knowing that our customers are thrilled with
the items they find at our stores. Make sure youâ€™re signed up to be
an online VIP, so you can stay in the loop on all our sales & special offers.
Happy Shopping everyone!
