Flag Day: Bold Stripes & Bright Stars for Your Home

Flag Day, a holiday to commemorate the adoption of the design for America’s first national flag design, is June 14. Perfectly situated between Memorial Day and Independence Day, it’s one more reason to incorporate red, white, and blue elements into your summer décor.

Celebrating this patriotic holiday doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. Your nearest Ohio Valley Goodwill Thrift Store has everything you need for a great price!


Throw pillows are inexpensive and simple to swap out for different occasions. Check Goodwill’s aisles for patriotic pillow options in red, white, and blue for indoors and out!

Thrifted dishes in red, white, and blue create a look that’s unique to you! Set your table with layered dishes, then add table linens that compliment the color scheme.

Painted Pieces

When hunting for the right Flag Day additions to your home, don’t forget the power of paint! Wooden décor can easily be refinished with a fresh coat of stain or paint, but so can picture frames and vases. The possibilities are endless, so enter your nearest Goodwill thrift store with an open mind.
