I decided to go by the thrift store on Wednesday (instead of the weekend like I was supposed to) and take advantage of the 25% off everything in the store. Let me just first say, I’ve never seen so many cars and people! Lines were almost out the door. There were a few things on my list, so I wanted see what they had! I saw some really nice pieces. Leave it to me to always find something to take home. On this excursion, I was “supposed” to look at furniture ONLY! I was specifically looking for a bookshelf (although my husband said he’s going to make one). I ran across some great pieces of furniture and cool items.
I absolutely loved this desk! It was made of real wood and clean in design. However, it was just out of my budget being priced at well over $150. More than what I was willing to pay for a second-hand desk.
Don’t ask me where I was gonna put this dang table, but I loved it!
Almost, but not quite. I really liked this desk. Oak finish, kind of a rustic feel. It was just too small and overpriced. Still a great piece though.
Okay…this bar stool hurt me to the core! I really needed a set! This is the exact style, bar stool I’ve been looking for. Paint that baby black — it would’ve been perfect. But…its twin was M.I.A.
I thought this piece was nice, but it’s not quite my taste. It was very clean and in great condition. Whoever found it was going to be a happy thrifter!
You guessed it! An 8-track tape/cartridge holder!
OFF THE SUBJECT!
I can’t go to the thrift store without browsing through the clothes!
Loved this vintage dress, with the peplum, belted waist! But…I am not a size 6! Lol
I did find two items for me! I fell in love with this top! The colors…LOVE! It has shoulder pads, and I love shoulder pads!
I also found a cute, vintage dress (not pictured) — perfect for Spring! It has pockets and pockets on a vintage dress totally rock my world!!!
This lamp was so cool! I could not leave without it. I only paid $5.00 for it and it will be perfect for our study room!
I found these beautiful shelves and I couldn’t leave without these either! I learned my lesson when I was on a mission looking for a dresser for one of my rooms (Post coming soon). They are really nice and I wasn’t the only one eyeing them! I quickly grabbed that tag and paid for them. My husband was super excited too! Not quite sure what we’re going to do with them yet. Book shelf, photos, art…who knows! I paid $18 a piece for them. You can’t find “real wood” furniture of such nice quality for that cheap hardly anywhere these days. I’m very excited about this purchase.
Until next time, happy thrifting!!!!!!!!
