It’s been months since I’ve gone to the Scott Antique Show or done any major thrift store shopping. I’ve been feeling the urge to do some shopping the last few weeks and decided to stop by one of my favorite thrift stores on Sunday. I wasn’t looking for anything specific but I always go into a store with the hopes of stumbling along a great bargain. I’m happy to say that my outing yielded some great finds. Here’s a look at my latest thrifting finds:
The first item I came across was a set of 4 signed and numbered watercolor art pieces. The artist, Joan Heflin Rankin lives in Alabama and specializing in floral art. I think these would be great as part of a gallery wall or having as a collection in a bathroom.
I found several blue and white pieces and this piece was definitely my favorite. It’s a hexagon plate with a domed lid and I have to tell you, it’s simply stunning. It The decision now is to keep it or sell it.
This cute little sugar canister caught my attention right away. I loved the floral design and the typography. This is another keep or sell item.
I also find this Chinoiserie designed hexagon shaped jar. The touches of pink with the blue and white are really charming and I can just imagine it filled with a pink roses.
I’ve got a thing for small dishes and couldn’t pass these up…they were only $1.00 each. I’m going to use these to hold jewelry on dresser.
I always sell these silver-plated toast racks when I put them in my Etsy shop. I style them as a desk accessory to hold notecards and stationery which gives them a whole new purpose. This one is really pretty because of the tray bottom and the beautiful scroll design. The pattern is also on the bottom of the tray.
And the last piece I bought was the adorable ceramic monkey holding a bowl. Isn’t he the cutest? Imagine him holding Meyer lemons or kumquat on a kitchen.
For my first outing of the year I’m pretty happy with my thrifting finds. I’m planning to go to the Scott Antique market next month and hope to find some more treasures for me and my Etsy shop.
I’m adding new items to the shop this week so stop by Friday and check it out.
p.s. anyone else have the thrifting fever??
