Now since thrifting is so much fun because you never know what you're going to find, I figured I'd show you a few of my finds that I found interesting. Unfortunately, the furniture selection was on the lighter side so most of these are accessory related.
This is the dishes/plates/platters/bowls/tea cups aisle...hello pretty dishes for dirt cheap. You have to sort through everything but it's worth it.
(Not my cart in case you were wondering) More plates, tea cups...
Old school Pyrex...do you spot more?
My Mom had these...
Cute teapot. You can't really tell from the photo but it's trimmed in gold.
They had a lot of serving platters like this that were really nice...perfect for lunch with friends or a bridal shower brunch.
This jar of zippers I had to photograph for Diane and Shannon who are local bloggers that I met at thrifting day. They are SO crafty and can really make something out of nothing, which is why I knew they would love these zippers...50 cents for the jar full of zippers.
Ever find cool animals or objects and say to yourself "if only I really loved _____ or if only I collected ______" In this case, if only I loved...hippos. With a pink ribbon around its neck of course. Would be cool on a bookshelf or something wouldn't it? (if you're into hippos or wooden animals)
My last find that I didn't snatch up was this...and I'm kind of regretting not getting it now.
I love it. Who else loves this with me? Coffee, gold, retro, love. I think I'd use it as a vase. I wonder if it's still there.
Ok, since I know you might be curious...here are the items that I picked up...
Two lamps and three plates for a grand total of $15. The elephant lamp I hope to use in my daughter's room (or a second baby's room) at some point - $4.00. The white lamp I'm hoping to use in our master along with the yellow floral plate for jewelry or coins, $9.50 for both ($8 for the lamp and $1.50 for the plate). And then the other two matching plates were thirty-five cents each - I liked the colors so I'll find something to do with them.
What are your latest big scores?
I hope to be back tomorrow with the design board for the loft space I'm working on for class.
Hope you had a great weekend!!
