After running a few errands last Saturday, I was actually rushing to a hair appointment when I decided to steal a few minutes and run into my friendly neighborhood Goodwill. I love going to thrift stores. You never know what you might find or be inspired by. Anyway, I was actually looking for a jean jacket for an upcoming project. No luck? But on the way out I spied a Christmas feather wreath.
Here’s why you should not sleep on thrift stores, not even especially during the holidays.
I picked it up the wreath to take a look. (BTW: Always pick it up, before someone else does. You can always put it back.) It was a white boa feather wreath. There were no stains or obvious missing feathers creating any bald spots. It looked quite expensive so when the timer on my phone went off, I decided I would get the wreath to start off my holiday decorations. I thought the wreath would look perfect hanging in front of the window in my bedroom.
I was right! It looks great. I do have plans to maybe string some white lights just to give it some nighttime drama.
DRAMA IN THE DUPE
But here is the really great part; after gazing at the wreath for awhile I thought it looked like something I might find at ZGallerie (my favorite store – for inspiration). So I did some research and look what I found – it is almost exactly like the one ZGallerie sells.
The only difference the ZGallerie wreaths’ feather tips are highlighted. Oh and my thrift store score was $7.99 and ZGallerie’s version a whopping $46.00. That’s a $38.00 savings!
I love when that happens. Can you say WINNING!
Yes! You can make one. Even though I found my feather wreath at the thrift store and saved BIG BUCKS (well sort of), you can not only recreate the wreath but the savings too.
