Thanksgiving is officially over, which means it’s time to decorate for the holiday season! If you love decorating each and every room in your house, then you know that holiday decorating can be both time-consuming and expensive. Not only that, but trends are always changing. This makes staying up to date with current holiday trends difficult. Stay festive and shop secondhand for your holiday decor!
Why buy secondhand
‘Tis the season for holiday shopping. This is the busiest season for retail stores, so if buying Christmas presents is draining your budget but you still want to decorate, visiting your local thrift store is a great option. Not only does shopping secondhand save you some money, it’s also better for the planet! Whether you plan to buy or donate to a thrift store near you, giving holiday decor a second chance is a good way to keep it out of landfills!
Holiday decor to buy secondhand
If buying holiday decor gets you in a festive mood, then buying secondhand is a great alternative! Many people donate their holiday decorations at the end of the season to make room for other decorations in their homes or simply to take part in other trends the next holiday season. With that in mind, shopping secondhand can be a steal when it comes to decor! Shopping secondhand can be intimidating though, so here are some ideas of what to look for on your next thrifting trip.
Love the look of vintage stockings? You can make finding the perfect set to hang on the mantle a lot easier by shopping secondhand. Good quality stockings that don’t cost an arm and a leg can be hard to come across. Whether you plan to actually use these stockings or just display them as a decoration, this is a steal!
Having a specific theme for your Christmas tree isn’t uncommon. If you’re having a hard time finding ornaments that fit your theme, or just want a cheaper alternative, thrifting ornaments is a great alternative to buying them new.
When looking for wreaths secondhand, don’t be afraid to take your own creative liberty! Feel free to add your own festive flair to what you find, whether it be thrifted fabric or ornaments. A well-decorated wreath can add a lot to your home’s holiday atmosphere. Lots of people end up donating wreaths and greenery after the holidays because of storage. Take advantage of this time and stock up.
If you don’t live near a Christmas tree farm, or just prefer faux trees but don’t love the price tag, opt for thrifting your tree instead! This is a cheaper alternative and, for those who like to have multiple trees in their home, this is a great way to do that.
For first-time holiday hosters, this one is a must-do! Thrift holiday-themed dishes to make your guests really feel the Christmas spirit. Holiday prints or colors are commonly found on dishes and are often found at Thrift Stores, especially after the holidays.
