Serving Up the Holidays on a Dime: Candle Giveaway!


Part one of a holiday series featuring Lakeshore Rescue Mission Thrift!

Would you believe that the place setting above is entirely secondhand and thrifted for about 11 dollars? Well, it is! The table, also for sale at the thrift store, is one of many pieces of discounted new furniture that you can purchase at Lakeshore Rescue Mission Thrift in Grand Haven. I put together this spread in moments with items I collected around the store, and you can do it, too! I honestly can not justify ONE reason to buy new holiday decor when you have so many wonderful, inexpensive options at your fingertips secondhand!

If you look closely in the picture, you'll notice a gold pillar candle that is part of the free giveaway in this blog! Details below!

As you can see, I was inspired by golds, cranberries and browns for my Thanksgiving place settings. However, there are so many great color schemes and ideas to be inspired by! You can recreate any look you like using thrifted items. Check out the Pinterest board I've created for more ideas:

Virtually any glassware you could hope to find or use for a center piece or serving can be found on the shelves at Lakeshore Rescue Mission Thrift.

Lakeshore Rescue Mission Thrift store is a non-profit funding source for Holland Rescue Misson. Holland Rescue Mission offers many services to homeless men, women and children of the Lakeshore area in Michigan, such as housing, food, daycare needs and more. Instead of wasting money on new items this year, give second-hand a try, and support the Holland Rescue Mission all while saving yourself money! Make sure to take note of the white board that lists all of the daily specials and discounts in store, and ask for a "punch" card that can earn you free items! LRMT also regularly publishes coupons in your local papers with inserts, so keep an eye out for those as well!
