thrifted jewelry finds

Thrifting over the years has been good to me. I’ve lucked up on some gems especially in the jewelry department. If you are looking for unique and cheap pieces now is the time to start snooping around your local area thrift stores.

The all familiar purge and declutter movement is kicking up steam all across the country as we prepare to leave what we don’t want in 2017. Somebody else’s junk will overwhelmingly become somebody else’s treasure as thrift and consignment stores abound with purged finds.

I know some people are averse to thrifting and that’s fine, I’m not and if you aren’t either jewelry pieces are great to thrift. The years have been good to me and I’ve collected some pieces that are unique and might I add cheap.

I don’t have sensitive skin so after a good wipe down with alcohol I’m good to go. As far as caring for high end costume jewelry,  I don’t coat anything with clear polish but I do take care not to expose the items to water.

If you are looking for cheap ways to dress up your outfits, and you love a good treasure hunt be sure to hit up your local thrift stores. When you find something good make sure you tag me on Instagram so I can see!

In a few weeks I’ll be doing an epic thrift store tour of Atlanta so stay tuned!

In the meantime, here are a few of my favorite thrifted jewelry finds, some of these stay on repeat like my favorite thrifted necklaces here and here.

  1. I love accessories, especially beaded jewelry, necklaces to be exact. I used to make my own. I sold most pieces but kept a few favorites for personal wear. Love your collection :-).

  2. I absolutely love thrifted jewelry, especially when they are costume pieces. I love shopping my Nana’s jewelry box and finding some unique pieces to wear…and she loves to wear my more modern stuff. It’s perfect!

  3. These pieces are so neat! I have been wanting to expand my jewelry collection for a while now but it just has not happened. Second hand jewelry is a great way to save money.

  4. These are all so gorgeous! I would love to go thrifting, I haven’t in a long time but I love it and find so many amazing things. Nothing this great though!

  5. I am indeed a thrifter and these are some really cute thrifted jewelry finds for sure. I love The chain necklace with the clear blocks of crystal on them. This piece is beautiful but yet unique. Thanks for sharing these awesome thrift pieces.

  6. I kinda hate shopping and thrift stores sometimes require some good digging to find the good pieces. But you found some super cute pieces so maybe I should give it a shot LOL.

  7. These are beautiful. I wish I could find some great finds like these at Goodwill!!Maybe I should give it another try. The last couple of times I went were a thumbs down. I’m sure it’s all about season and location too, so I might need to check out some other Goodwills in town.

  8. I precisely had to thank you so much once more. I do not know the things that I could possibly have tried without the entire suggestions provided by you about this question. It had become a very traumatic concern in my position, but coming across your professional mode you resolved the issue took me to weep over happiness. I am just happier for the guidance and thus sincerely hope you comprehend what a great job that you’re providing training people all through your websites. I’m certain you haven’t encountered any of us.
