My Lastest Thrifting Finds

Thrift Finds10

It’s no secret that I love trolling the aisles of thrift stores and flea markets whenever I can.  It’s the thrill of finding a beautiful decorative piece or furniture that needs some TLC that makes it such fun.  I’m always on the lookout for new stores in the area and recently came across a new-to-me antique store that was filled with lots of great bargains.

As always, a few of the items I find when thrifting are for me and others are for my Etsy shop.  Here’s what I found recently…

Blue and white pottery is such a popular trend right now and finding nice vintage pieces is becoming harder and harder.  I found this lidded jar and this blue and white vase and both pieces are really substantial and are in great condition.

Rarely do I pass up a tray when I see one and this woven wicker tray was a steal at only $1.00.  And the leather side handles were an added bonus.

I spotted this little wooden chest one day but left it in the store.  I couldn’t get it out of my mind so I headed back the next day and snagged it.  The carving detail on the drawer fronts is really beautiful and I love the overall look of the piece.  It would make a really great jewelry cabinet and would also look great on a bookshelf.

I have a major obsession with brass and found some great pieces.  A little polishing and these babies will be extra stunning.

I loved the colors in this ceramic vase and the gold details make it even prettier.  I have so many ideas on how this piece can be used.

Here’s a up close of the blue and white vase.

And probably my favorite piece is the beautiful brass bowl and I’m trying to decide if I want to keep it or put it in the shop.

The World’s Longest Yard Sale starts tomorrow and this is the first time in 4 years that the hubs and I won’t be making the trek.  So I don’t go through complete withdrawls, we’re planning a little weekend getaway and I plan to pop into a few shops along the way.   If you want to read about our WLYS trips you can read about them here and here.

  2. That “tray” with leather handles held a casserole dish that came with it. Great buy!
