Thrift Store Decor: Unique, Eco-Friendly & On-Budget

September 17, 2019 / Community, Home, Home Decor, Interior Design

 

Using secondhand items in your home is a great way to shop sustainably while adding creativity to your decor. It may take some digging, but with a little patience and an open-mind you can often find some great pieces to either reuse, reclaim, repurpose, or upcycle! Plus, you can shop guilt-free knowing that you’re using existing items & materials (which is better for our environment)!  

 

We are lucky to have many secondhand thrift & antique shops located throughout the Seacoast area – some even function as fundraisers for charitable programs. We’ve listed a few places below, but please share your favorite spots with us!
