Rake in Savings with Fall Decor at Community Services Thrift Store

Rake in the Savings on Fall Decor & Fashion

Fall Home Decor Thrift Stores Sunshine Coast BCHome decorators say that changing up your decor when the season changes can inspire adjustments in your everyday life. We take our cues from nature and changing up the colours and texture can help us adapt to the upcoming season — the shorter days and cooler temperatures.

Revamping your living space to reflect the rich hues of autumn and incorporate warmth in your home with pillows and blankets doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Thrift stores are the perfect one-stop shop for finding a unique home decor piece or a new accent pillow for less money.

Here are just a few ways you can bring a touch of fall into your life with a little help from your local thrift store:

1) Throw pillows and blankets add warmth and texture to your home. When the temperatures dip, pull out the fleece blankets and rich hued accent pillows. Not only will they take the chill off, but the texture encourages you and guests to curl up with a good book!


2) Dining or coffee table centerpieces adds a touch of seasonal charm to your family’s favourite rooms. Invite fall to take center stage for your next get together with a unique display of leaves, foliage and a home decor piece.

3) A scarf or hat is a great way to top off a fantastic fall wardrobe. Picking one that incorporates colours found in nature during the autumn months is a great way to embrace the seasonal change.

Back to University with Thrift Store Style

It’s down to the last few hectic weeks before former high school students make the transition into university freshman. Where the “must have lists” include pens, paper and now items for the dorm room.

20170821_150437For some, it is just a few blankets and sheets for the dorm beds. For others living in apartments or off campus, the basics may include items like silverware, pots, pans and even coffee makers.

Starting school can be a drain on your wallet, but you can curb the costs by shopping for some of the housing basics at local thrift stores. Gently used second-hand items can be treasures for students heading out on their own for the first time.

20170821_150339From bedding to cutlery to small appliances, thrift stores carry everything a first time university student may need — at a fraction of the cost.

Community Services Thrift Store on North Road in Gibsons tests each small appliance from toasters to vaccums before they go on the floor.

Pop into our store and see what we have in store for your back-to-university “must have” list. Inventory changes daily!
