Jenn and I haven’t shared our thrift store finds for quite some time now. Our lives are so crazy busy at the moment, it’s hard to find a spare minute to do the thrift store pilgrimage. Typically we like to make a day out of thrifting – visiting our favorite shops and looking for great deals. Do you do that? Fun, right?
The thrill of the hunt with the promise of discovering a hidden treasure is invigorating.
Typically, we have a few set things that we always look for:
- Furniture – for our homes as well as for clients.
- Trays – the perfect way to stage vignettes in any home.
- Coffee table books – especially related to home decor.
- Dishes – inexpensive way to dress up tabescapes and holiday tables.
Beyond this list is anything that strikes our fancy in the moment and that is a good deal.
This week I made my way to my local Goodwill.
Great Deal Alert!
Right now my eyes are pealed for anything blue and white. I spied these pretty bowls buried on a shelf – there are six of them.
An added surprise was that these are from Bobby Flay’s line of cookware. All six bowls were thrift store priced at $2.00. After a quick search on Replacement’s website, I discovered that this pattern is Marbella – and they sell each bowl for $9.99!!
These pretty bowls pair well with my dishes…
Another Great Deal!
My friend Darlene invited me to a new-to-me indoor flea market. I immediately spied these adorable French egg cups – and they are blue and white 🙂
After receiving a 30% discount both cups were $5.00
I soon discovered an online auction site that sold an exact pair for $29.99. Another big win!
Remember my post on planting succulents in vintage silver sugar bowls? I couldn’t resist this Goodwill purchase of .50 cents.
Currently, it is on my desk being used as a clip holder.
This wire basket is heavy – like wrought iron heavy. It was only $1.00. I will be making a visit to my local garden center to learn how to add plants to this – I think it requires moss but I am not sure what else. Do you have any ideas?
You know that I can’t resist a good tray. This vintage hammered aluminum tray is a beauty and for just $3.00 I couldn’t leave it behind.
Overall, this was a fantastic thrifting week. Usually results vary with each trip. Sometimes it can be weeks of leaving stores empty handed – other times our excursions can produce a large haul. We have learned we just need to be patient and to make more regular visits. Inventory changes on a daily basis at most thrift stores.
We wish you a happy and wonderful weekend. See you back here on Monday!
