I’ve had some luck thrifting lately, so I thought I’d share my finds with you, since I haven’t done a thrifting post in awhile! I scored these amazing art pieces above for $2-3 each. I love buying paintings at thrift shops-they don’t have to be Monets, but I can appreciate the skill and caring that went into them. Besides, they are much better than I could ever do, so……thanks, random person who painted this, and then framed it in an awesome carved wooden frame! (thrifting bonus: those plates hanging up were thrifted awhile ago as well…)
Also, love the horse sketch-I don’t know where I will hang it, but I am still an 11 year old horse crazy girl inside so I had to get it. The little cake plate didn’t come that way, I found the amazing ceramic pie plate (? tart pan? anyways, it was like $2) and glued it to that white ceramic cup ($1) I found on the same thrifting trip. They were meant for each other! I love me a good (cheap) homemade cake plate. Tutorial for that here!
I stumbled on a cache of Little Golden Books (75 cents each) so I picked up some fun ones I don’t have yet…
and one that I do (I Can Fly-Kristin sent me a copy awhile ago, but it’s our FAVE and I am always afraid the girls will ruin it, so if they do, I have a back up now!) They are really good with these books, but we do get torn pages every now and then, from Charlotte mostly.
And oh my gosh-the best find in AWHILE. A write your own LGB! I never knew these existed! It’s totally blank for you to write a story in! I don’t even know if I’ll ever use it, or just hoard it forever. haha
I’ve been planning my sister’s bridal shower and went to look for milk glass vases. Standing there were these 5 vases just waiting for me! 50% off day, too, so they were about $2 each. Love thrifting karma! I got the little milk glass canister on another trip-for candy or maybe a succulent plant-haven’t decided yet!
I grabbed these awesome glass canisters for a $2-3 each-and painted the lids-bam instant update. Added some chalkboard labels and supplies and I’ve got some cute new jars for organizing sewing supplies!
What great deals have you stumbled across lately?
Oh and I just wanted to let you know if you haven’t seen it already-the newest Pattern Anthology collectionis now available! These ladies worked SO hard on this collection and it shows.
