What’s the fun of searching through thrift stores if you can’t tell somebody else about the treasures you find—right? I’m always curious about what other people find–and what they’re paying for it—so I can compare when I find something similar. So, this is what I’ve brought home lately:
While shopping over Christmas break, I hit the milk glass jackpot. I found a slew of bud vases for $0.50 to $1.00 and bought all of them. (I’m using a big grouping on our mantel right now.)
I have a hard time refusing round/sunburst gold mirrors. I love the size of this small one, and it was less than $5. Perfect for stacking above a frame for extra height.
Okay, so my dad actually found these miniature busts and brought them to me. I immediately did a sloppy job of spray painting them glossy gray. He let me ooh and aah over how unique they were and how old they must be. Then, he broke it to me that he had found a Dollar Tree sticker on the bottom and peeled it off before giving them to me. Isn’t he funny. . . Well, I still think they’re a find. :)
This glass pedestal bowl was only a couple of dollars. I thought I could use it for candy. . . or cotton balls. (Or both, if I were Buddy the Elf.)
I also have a hard time passing up a good pharmacy lamp. Especially when it’s big with really good curves—and only $40.
And, these bentwood chairs are why I get up early on Saturday mornings to go to yard sales. I bought four of these for $2 a piece and sprayed them glossy gray for our dining room/office table.
Have you found anything good lately?
