Thrifting Thursday

Hey there!  Welcome to Thrifting Thursday!  I am excited to show you what I found recently while I was out thrifting.  I just love me a good deal, don’t you?  I haven’t been a thrifter for very long, but I have always loved a good deal when I find one.

I started thrifting about 4 years ago.  While finding my style, and creating a new look for our home, I started shopping at local thrift stores.  Things would catch my eye. And for a couple of bucks I could paint it, change it up and make it my own.  That’s how it all began.

Now onto Thrifting Thursday…

Oh my goodness!  Can you believe this was only $10…

What a bargain, right?  It is very rustic and was probably kept outside.  There isn’t hardly even any vanish left on it.  That will make it easy for me to paint.

Oh! And look at the pulls.  I will keep those on here for sure.

What color should I paint it?  There is a perfect space in our office for this size end table.  The creative juices are flowing…

My next purchase was only 5 bucks.  It is a vintage dresser mirror made in the 70s.

I can see the potential for a mirror like this.  I have BIG plans for my new mirror.

Mirrors are great for any space large or small.

I am having fun collecting vintage tea saucers and cups.

This trip was all about the saucers.

I like the saucers with gold trim and accents.

And, look at the lovely, creamy green saucer.  I HAD to have it!  There wasn’t a price tag, so the manager gave it to me for 25 cents.  YES!

The same with the silver pedestal.  Twenty five cents again.  It was my lucky day, that’s for sure.  The silver pedestal is silver plated and a little tarnished, but I love the patina on it.  Perfection.

Do you shop at thrift stores?  What are some of your favorite stores?  What are your favorite thrift finds?  I would love to hear about them.

Thanks for joining me on Thrifting Thursday.  It was a fun post, wasn’t it???
