Why Shop At Secondhand Stores?

I love hitting up the thrift store for gifts because not only are you keeping something out of the landfill, but you can also get a lot of great deals. I recently spotted several items at the thrift store that inspired me to make fun gift baskets!

MOVIE NIGHT BUCKET

– Homemade popcorn     seasoning (I used nutritional     yeast, kosher salt, garlic     powder and mustard powder)  – Popcorn kernels (buy in bulk     and gift in a glass jar) – Movie ticket of their choice – Thrifted popcorn bucket

Perhaps the most famous of all, the Williams Sonoma is a timeless classic.
