In the age of thrift and environmental awareness, buying used is not a bad idea.
Because of this, you might want to spice up your space without spending too much on the following items.
CLASSIC BOOKS FOR DECORATION
Hardcover books and magazines can add value to your space when you use them as illustrated books.
If you want an elevated look, consider placing aesthetically pleasing ones on your desired surfaces.
However, coffee table books, especially hardcover books, can be quite expensive. So instead of buying them brand new, you might want to visit your local thrift store.
You will definitely discover some interesting finds.
Looking for unusual, decorative crockery? Check out the charity shops in your area.
There you will find pieces with a vintage look that will impress any guest without being too expensive.

And don’t worry – it doesn’t have to be perfect. A few dents and scratches just add a vintage feel.
From full length mirrors for practicality to more decorative wall pieces, you don’t need to spend too much on this item.
You can either get one at your local thrift store or find one through Facebook Marketplace.
Art will help define the feel of your space, and you can find vintage or contemporary-looking prints at a second-hand art store.
