Have you heard of the Palm Beach Thrifter?
No? You are missing out. Seriously.
We’ve been following her for a couple years on instagram, and let us tell you…she’s amazing, and what’s even better is what she finds! We are planning a winter getaway to thrift (maybe we’ll stumble upon the PBT herself!) and escape the cold and snow.
Who are the Palm Beach Thrifters?
First, it’s a family affair…and you know how much we love that! There’s Ambie, Tommy (her boyfriend), Ambie Sr. (the Momma), Shelly (Ambie’s Sister), Juliet (Shelly’s daughter) and Sailor (loyal bird dog thrifter).
“After 25 years, Ambie closed her stores in Nantucket and Florida, and became a professional thrifter. With her keen business sense and trained eye, she scouts out the thrift shops for upscale furniture, designer clothing, and rare antiques to resell for profit. Ambie believes that thrifting is a win, win situation. You save money, give back, and have fun all at the same time!”
Needles to say, she’s a woman after our own hearts. We have a passion for thrifted pieces, and one of a kind spaces that cannot be found just anywhere. But look at some of her scores:
With a keen eye, and a knack for finding the most amazing items throughout the Palm Beach area, she raids the local:
-Habitat for Humanity
-Etc, etc, etc…in fact the list just goes on and on and on.
Some of her finds give Serena & Lily a run for their money!
She knows that leopard is an interior designer’s best friend:
We’re Emma Carole Paradis and Kimberly Carole, the owners and designers of Impeccable Nest, based in Bedford, New Hampshire. A mother-daughter team with a love of design. Originally from Manhattan Beach, California, now based in Bedford, New Hampshire, we bring a Southern California cool and New England tradition to our design. Not only do we work together…we also live together in a multi-generational home…and a home that they are known to design for others.
