We know that not having matching pieces for your dishware can sometimes be annoying or bothersome for those of us who like everything to match well together, but there are actually a lot of benefits to buying dishware at the thrift store. All you have to do is have a plan and realize that you can actually mix and match pieces that you have with new ones, even if they’re not from the same set.

You can choose a color palette or use one colorful plate as a center piece and then build a whole table spread around it. It’s a fun exercise, and you will be surprised by the quality of the items you sometimes find at thrift stores. Not to mention, if something breaks by accident, no one will cry about it due to the price, and no set is ruined!

Not to mention, if you’re into food photography, you can find a myriad of interesting and aesthetic plates at the thrift store that will take your pictures to the next level, with the added benefit that they won’t break the bank!

  1. Let’s not forget electronics! Some of the best electronics gadgets I have came from a thrift store. One that I use daily is a Fisher cd player. I bought this over 10 years ago for $5. It was an older model, but still in it’s original package. After getting it home, I emptied the box to see what my small investment included. I was shocked when it appeared that it had never been out of the box… ever! From the protective plastic on the digital readout, the factory packing, and even the unwrapped batteries it came with! It was like grandpa had gotten it from the grandkids but never had use for it. Treasures like this are rare, but always a welcomed addition.

  2. Went for a specific item, a walker for my Mom. Had several to choose from and the one I chose was discounted even further at the register. I had no idea.

  3. I will shop at both ARC and Good Will. I love buying books there, although Good Will has much better organization of their bookshelves.
    I’ve found great deals on collectible teapots and teacups, and I always buy a package of random greeting cards.
