A few months ago, I wrote a post on how I’ve always been a little freaked out going into thrift stores to find new treasures. Sure, I do it anyway, but it’s always made me a little nervous. It’s silly, I know!
It’s a few months later now and I ventured back in. I thought I’d give you a little follow up.
So, this was my second time ever at this particular store and once again, I had problems holding on to all the awesome things I found for dirt cheap. That’s definitely helping me to be a little less freaked out! Cheap treasures!
New rule for me: Never get a cart! I would fill that thing in a second.
Here’s what I managed to grab in my little hands without dropping:
This yellow and black plaid blanket is real wool! Wool, plaid, and $5? You’re coming with me. You may recognize this from my Fall Fair mud room post.
This set of 12 green and yellow leaf plates was only $6! I secretly have dreams of having themed dinnerware for all Holidays. Dream partially fulfilled!
You may have caught a glimpse of these in my Fall Dining Room.
This is a pillow sham that I have no use for. But c’mon! It’s blue and white, and quilted and it was $2 less a penny. I will find it a home eventually.
I even found 2 more blue and white vases for my “collection”. Does 4 vases plus a waving cat count as a collection? Well, regardless, they bring me joy, so I made them mine!
So that was my haul. I also saw a big old spool that would have made a great table for $9, a wicker picnic basket for $4 and about 17 lamps I wanted to bring home and subject to hours of spray painting. I restrained myself until next time.
Oh yes, there will be a next time! I may still be a little bit freaked out, but I expect to be making a full recovery… and soon!
