Home Decor Thrifting

Hey friends! It's been a while since I've showed you my recent thrift store finds! Today I'll only be posting the gems I've found for our home because, let's be honest, if I posted the clothes I've found we'd be here all day. So here it goes…

First off let me tell you how much I LOVE Nate Berkus. I have been following his work for close to 10 years now.  I have some of his books and have often dreamed of working with him as an interior design student. That being said, you can imagine how excited I was when he did a collaboration with Target. It has been SO hard for me not to buy all of his collection from Target. You all know how savvy cheap I can be when it comes to buying things.  Therefore it was hard for me to justify spending money on buying any of this things from Target.  

Fast forward a few months…As I've told you before, items that don't sell at Target are donated to Goodwill.  So needless to say I ended up scoring some Nate Berkus items at Goodwill for less than half the price! *happy dance*

I found this rug just last week while at a trip to Goodwill. It is originally $130 from Target but I got it for $60!  It's handwoven, super soft, and absolutely adorable.  

I also found these Nate Berkus pillows at Goodwill that were originally $25 for $12.  I wanted them from the moment I saw them at Target so I was SO happy when I found them at a thrift store.  I also found that rad mid century lamp at Goodwill for $7.  The lamp shade was a little dingy, so I just did a little Pinteresting and recovered it with this inspiration and this tutorial.   I LOVE the way it turned out.  

I also found this Nate Berkus bed spread set at Goodwill for $50, originally $90 at Target.  The African woven basket hanging on the wall to the left was also thrifted for only $2!  

These curtains, also originally from Target for $30, were purchased at Goodwill.  To be honest, I don't remember how much I bought them for, but again it was meant to be.  I wanted some simple white and mustard yellow curtains and had seen these at Target, but didn't want to pay full price for 2.  So I waited and found them at Goodwill for a better price!  YAY! 

You've probably started to notice a trend by now that I buy a lot of Target merchandise from Goodwill.  Well, here is one more example.  This cute little yellow pillow was originally from Target for $25 but I scored it for $10!

I have been searching for these handwoven baskets for a long time now but couldn't find one at a reasonable price, and low and behold, I found one at Goodwill for $6 people!  It doesn't get much better than that!  


  1. You really are the best thrifter!!! Not just that you find great things, but you find great things that all look amazing together!

  2. FYI: Target does not "donate" their items to Goodwill, they sell them to Goodwill. I have seen Target items at Goodwill with a Target clearance sticker and a pink Goodwill sticker that is priced HIGHER than the Target clearance price. Goodwill has gotten completely out of control with pricing their items. I live in Southern California and Goodwill prices here are outrageous.
