I love thrifting! I especially love to thrift when I am looking to change things up in my home with seasonal decor. One of my top tips whenever I am searching for items is to hit my local Salvation Army thrift store often. Here are my top 5 thrifted items that I found at my local store on Richmond road in Ottawa that are perfect for the summer season.

1. Art Deco Sconce: I found a pair of  gorgeous art deco sconces with an ombre metallic finish. This find will be perfect with flameless candles and hung on a patio (above).

2. Thrifted Wine Glasses: Buy wine glasses instead of plastic glasses when entertaining. It will up your entertaining game and is environmentally friendly.

3. Thrifted Art: I found this gorgeous piece of art filled with stunning shades of blues, greens and rusty oranges. Thifted art is a great way to get inspiration and changes up your seasonal colour schemes. If you don't love the colour of the frame you can easily paint it.
