Treasures

I wanted to share some treasures I found recently while thrifting on my lunch break. I like to try to get out at least once a week on a thrifting adventure. I work in business (life insurance to be exact) so I need to get out and feed my creative spirit if you know what I mean (no more business talk I don't want to bore you to tears).

My thrift shop of choice these days has been Impact in Montgomeryville. It's huge and organized - both big pluses in my book.

So without further ado...

3 cut-glass pears - perfect for the holidays or for that mantel that I'll have someday - you know I like pears. (these were actually from Impact in Norristown - different trips, swear)

I think this is supposed to be a soup bowl, but I loved it. Great lines and a classy gold/black/cream colored. $1.50

This is going on my gallery wall in the living room that's been in the works forever. The colors were perfect and how can you beat handmade? And $2.50 - do you like how I kept the price tags on? (just call me Tacky McTack)

Two plates, 35 cents each - these will also be on the gallery wall but I plan on fixing them up a bit. I'll be getting my DIY on at some point when I have free time.

I'll be back tomorrow to share some art and auction books that I found at the same thrift shop. It was inspiration central when I came across these books.


Have you found any treasures recently for your home? What are some of your favorite thrift stores or markets?

  1. I think the pears will be great displayed on your desk or in your "someday office" when you have your own design business ; ) Great finds!
