Thrifting Norwegian Style

Norwegian Thrifting Adventure

 Big Hair runs in the family.

I’m so lucky to have family in Norway!  I went to visit my cousin/bff/former college roomate Lisa and her beautiful family over Spring Break.  She took me on many adventures through Norway and of course we had to add a little Norwegian thrifting!


Salvation Army Norway


Fretex is the Norwegian Salvation Army.  See the logo?   There is a store right in her little village.Salvation Army Norway

Number one: I think it is great when thrift stores have a sale section.  Number two:  Bugs Bunny is international.Salvation Army Norway

The store was full of light and laid out so beautifully.  This is the childrens section and I would totally wear that ruffly top!Salvation Army Norway

This top was adorable, too bad it wasn’t my size.  It happens to be H&M.    My cousin calls it by it’s proper name Hennes & Mauritz.  It is a Swedish company ya know.Salvation Army Norway

49 Krone is about $8.00 US.   Great price for an adorable top!Salvation Army Norway

I love this Scandinavian style bleached table!

Yes, I know I do not need another cake plate.

If I just had a little more room!  Look at this amazing cake or cheese dome!  It was only $20.00.  That is a steal.Salvation Army NorwayHope you enjoyed this little tour of Salvation Army Norway Style.  I didn’t buy anything, but if I had an extra bag I would have been tempted!!

    Loved this post–what a fabulous trip and wonderful finds! That shirt from H&M (never knew what it stood for before today!) is darling!

    Yay you are back online! I am so glad that you made that long long trip to see me! I say a picture of the Fretex tag… Den som leter skal finne. Loosely translated… One that looks shall find 🙂
    xoxo Miss you!
