I love to find new spots (such as the St. Thomas barn sale) but I also love my old favorites too. One of my favorites is Impact Thrift. It's like a toy store of fun and I wish one of these days all of you will be able to come with me sometime.
Here is my loot that I picked up the other day...all for under $10.00.
I guess I have a thing for baskets and wicker these days because I picked up another basket a few weeks ago as well (I'll show that on another post).
There was an entire 3 or 4 shelves dedicated to baskets, but these two caught my eye. The fish was quirky and of course textural, and the octagonal shaped plate of sorts I thought could be used on a mantle or coffee table at some point.
I always go over to the book section first when I walk into the store (the store is huge). This book, Furniture and Decoration - Period and Modern by James Aronson, caught my eye. Design basics never go out of style and this book is full of the fundamentals of design. For $1.75 I couldn't pass it up both to read and to use as a prop at some point.
The cups and saucers (I bought 2 sets for $2.75 each) were the real pretty finds for the day.
They are a discontinued Fitz & Floyd china pattern (Pareille) and I love the Hollywood Regency glam look that they have not to mention entirely functional for morning coffee. It was funny because quite a few women were glancing over the pieces as I was standing there as well.
I have a lot more items to show you that I've been accumulating - remember to follow me on Instagram for more updates.
Are there certain items that you keep an eye out for when you are out at flea markets?
**Local Friends - the St. Thomas barn sale is being held on a special night - tonight! From 5-8pm. I'll be there - let me know if you will.
