Earrings are a fun accessory and I love a stud that’s not your ordinary pearl, knot, ball or triangle. Take a look at a few I found for dressing up or down. Plenty of people wear studs and the tiny things always stand a chance of getting lost so keep these in mind when you’re thinking of Christmas gifts.
1. Tea sets, tableware, dishware, serviceware
2. Home Goods
Candles, candle holders, vases, and porcelain pieces you can use in your home.
4. School Supplies
If you’re a teacher or a daycare provider, the thrift store can help you save on materials.
5. Holiday Supplies
Plenty more where this came from, you can find Christimas cards, wrapping paper, tissue paper and if you’re a crafty genius you’ll see other materials you can use to decorate during the holiday season.
What are some items you keep your eyes peeled for when thrifting?
1. Grab a plain laptop case and paint to get your laptop traveling on the wild side.
2. For your little one, buy some sequins and sew them to a tee or cardigan for a festive transformation. This would make a great DIY during the holidays.
3. Purchase an old purse from the thrift store then use old jewelry that you no longer wear and glue them to the purse.
Designer and stylist Lauren Austin Wood has created this collection of baseball caps inspired by her travels around the globe. The caps made up from African wax prints, Guatemalan ikat, Italian bouclé and shibori. Even the visors are unique to each hat, you’ll find them made of linen, suede and leather. They cost more than your average baseball cap but they’ll deliver more of a personal touch. If you’re down for the cause, you could always find a fabric you love and DIY your own like I did with my cap here. Tempted to do a wax print one too, maybe with a leather visor? That seems like a good challenge. I’ll keep you posted but until then, check out the caps in her collection.
