We love to unearth great finds at affordable costs — the little happies that make you feel like you’re getting something totally fun for a steal. Behold, our latest list of Cheap Thrills! Here are our favorite FINDS, all for $20 or less!
FOR THE HOME
Bring a little flavor to your daily to-do list with this whimsical Cherries notepad. With art by American artist Vicki Sawyer, the handy pad is perfect for keeping around the kitchen to compile your grocery list, or stash it in your bag so you can keep your passing thoughts on paper. Find it at Hester & Cook for $10.
Kentucky Derby tea towel
Louisville artist Maizie Clark pays homage to the Kentucky Derby with this adorable tea towel, which is part of her Horse of Windsor collection. Use it just during Derby season, or keep it out and celebrate all year long. Find it — and other fabulous Derby items — in SB Shop’s special Derby Shop for $16.
We kinda think this should be called a “kool”zie because it’s unlike any other koozie we’ve seen. Created by Southern brand Cement6, the koozies feature intriguing art, while the fully lined interior ensures your bevy stays chill, just like you! Find them for $8 at cement6.com.
If you start your days with an espresso, then you’ll definitely enjoy sipping it from a cortado cup by Civil Stoneware, a Birmingham-based brand. A cortado is an espresso cut with a small amount of warm milk to reduce the acidity (you’ll love it!), and this is the perfect vessel in which to serve it. Available in four styles for $17 each, these will be your new go-to! Find them at SB Shop — click here.
FASHION & ACCESSORIES
Woodland creatures socks
When you’re heading out for your springtime hike, don these fabulous socks to truly embrace the nature vibe. These Darn Tough Socks feature fun woodland creatures and are made of merino wool, which dries quickly and keeps stinky summer feet smell away. Find them at Mast General Store, with locations throughout the South, or at their website here for $19.99.
Lucky penny necklace
Who wouldn’t welcome a bit of luck? And yes, it may seem counter-intuitive to purchase a penny, but this isn’t just any penny. It’s a penny pendant that is stamped with the word “lucky.” Hanging from a sterling silver chain, the copper penny is both fashionable and fun. From Southern jeweler Kathryn Riechert, find it for $20 here.
