Four Kitchen and Decor Items We’re Coveting from Thrift Core

Posted March 3, 2014 by in Home

We’re obviously obsessed with thrift items here at Broke & Chic and we’ve been crushing on Thrift Core for years. Thrift Core is a thrifty lifestyle blog by Vanessa Alvarado.

According to Vanessa:

Thrift Core is about living a thrifty, happy, healthy, creative life, in short. And documents the adventures of a kitsch, robot, and dinosaur loving reseller and creative!


After launching her blog, Vanessa decided to open an online shop to sell all the vintage housewares and decor she finds. If you love vintage kitchen trinkets and kitsch decor, you’ll love her shop!

Below are four things we’d love to add to our homes.

1. Owl Jar

This vintage owl jar from the 1970’s is adorable! Use it to store coffee or sugar in your kitchen. As a coin holder in your living room. Or as a cotton ball holder in your bathroom.



2. Mod Coffee Cups

Saturated and bold, these plastic coffee cups have a mid century modern design with a bonus — they’re practically INDESTRUCTIBLE. Enjoy your coffee on the go, on picnics, or at the office without fear that your precious will shatter!



3. Atomic-Style Tang Pitchers

Don’t think you’ll be drinking Tang anytime soon? This set would also be perfect for pouring tea, coffee, milk, or creamer.



4. Mod Mixing Bowl

This pyrex mixing bowl has a lovely floral pattern that’s very mod. Use it to bake, store left overs, or for decoration. Wouldn’t it look just darling on your dresser or coffee table?
