Not all thrifting expeditions have to require a U-haul, borrowing a friends truck, or strapping your latest treasure to your car roof. Some of those small details that can make a big difference can be found while thrift shopping. Not that you want your home to look like Sanford & Son's or the latest episode of HOARDERS... but here are some thought starters that won't break the bank or your back:

Silver and gold details, when polished -
 can make your table shine!

Out of the blue, a thrift item could
be the source for your next decor color choice...

Thrifting can be a source for tablescaping ideas...

Even get inspired by special B&W details, animal prints
or if the price is right stock up on versatile everyday white dishes...

Not all thrifting details are for tables or shelves -
Mixing woods, illustrations and metals can make for
an interesting wall collection and sometimes
the deal on a frame itself can be too good to pass up:
just change out the art to your own
(scored the top left for only $3)

Vintage finds can also add personality to your collections -
or start a hunt for a new collection- like cameras for a photographer...

or typewriters for a journalist, writer,
or as a nod to the past for a computer whiz...

Even some thrift finds can be paired with something new,
and create an exciting new palette for an upcoming seasonal change...
(Dress prints: Target. Glass leaves and metal trivets: local Salvation Army)

Thrifting can be a fun source for creativity - why keep it bottled-up?

So put your thinking caps on
and arm yourself with an open mind...

because you just never know, what you might find...

All finds featured above I found while walking through
Goodwill stores, Salvation Army, and Stoneage Antiques - Miami.
