Thrifty Thursday~ What a Bargain!

Everyone loves a bargain~ and many of our Upcyclers have them! We got to know a bunch of members who sell craft supplies during National Craft Month, but that was just a sampling. We have lots who 'pay it forward' by listing cheap upcycling and craft supplies, offer destash items from their studios or since they rarely throw anything away, find a way to salvage "trash" by upcycling it into craft supplies. Here's a dozen bargains for today, because you know what they say: cheaper by the dozen!

Guinea Feathers $3.00~ K5Art

Monopoly Houses $1.95~ ria 13

$3.00~ Jewels4Thought

$12.00~ KatiedidOnline

Terrarium Moss $7.00~ ByLightOfMoon

Palm Tree Bark Stars $3.49~ MamaStowes

$4.00~ DekoProjects

Destash Vintage Slips $14.00~ DreamDatePetties

25 Antique Book Pages $4.00~ CandidaEtc

Tie-Dyed T-Shirt Yarn $6.39~ ReclaimedFibers

15 Steampunk Gears $8.50~ UncommonRecyclables

These are items or shops taken straight from our Discussion Threads on Etsy titled~ Supplies for Upcycling~ and good news: You don't have to be a member of our team or Etsy to see them! So be sure to check them out anytime!

Remember being thrifty doesn't mean your cheap, lol~ it means you're ECOnomical!

    I got a chuckle when you said 'since they rarely throw anything away, find a way to salvage "trash" by upcycling it into craft supplies." Well said.

    Sometimes I feel like a hoarder however the beauty in my Art speaks for it's self.
