“Collect things you love, that are authentic to you, and your home becomes your story" —Designer Erin Flett 

Here’s a few tips on how to achieve The Thrifty Thrill aesthetic: 

  • Step 1 – Collect everything; shells, stones, jewelry, stickers, trinkets, pictures, plants, and so on. Never stop collecting things you like. 
  • Step 2 – Collect plates, trays, shelves, wall hangings, mannequins, dishes, cups and other containers to hold or display your collections. *Make sure to put similar items together - Keeps you organized!
  • Step 3 – Use every inch of your dresser and every foot of your room to showcase your collections! 
  • Step 4 – SHOP AT THRIFT STORES to start or add to your collections!
