Friday Finds: this weeks haul at the thrift store

I have been so darn busy lately that I haven’t had time to go to my favorite thrift shop as much as I would like, but I finally found some time this week!  One of my first stops in the store is the furniture section, where this trip I instantly saw a vintage credenza for only $50…it had a sold tag on it…of course. I let myself feel sad for just a moment and turned away and my eyes instantly found a kidney bean shaped coffee table!!! I have never seen one on real life, I practically ran over, and guess what?! It had a sold sign on it too, as well as the price… 20 freaking dollars. I almost started crying….why have I been so busy lately? why haven’t I been making time to thrift shop? why didn’t I get here sooner? For about the next half an hour, my stomach felt sick, that is until I found knick knacks to take my mind off of the loss. I spent just $19 and came away with an arm load of goodies! My haul consists mostly of vintage knick knacks, which I am in the market for anyway. So here we go, this is what I picked up this round:

A gold letter tray/sorter? I believe that is what this is… this lil guy was only a dollar. Im not sure what I will use it for yet, but I will let you know

The next treasure I found was a golden fawn bank, that was made in Japan. I love the kitschy look of this Bambie and would you believe it only cost 50 cents!! This picture does not do it justice.

This periwinkle blue violin vase can also be hung on the wall, which makes it that much more interesting. I dont have anything like it, but I was drawn to it for some reason.

I found this darling little dish which I thought would be just perfect for holding jewelry, don’t you think?! This was a great find at only $1! And it was made in the USA!

This crystal decanter will look perfect on my little tiki bar. Ive always wanted a fancy decanter to pretend I am suave like those in the golden days. For $4 I could not pass it up.

This may be my favorite find of the day… this divine, white and delicate purple floral jar. It was half price, so was only $1.50…and I needed it!! Im not quite sure where I will put it or what I will use it for, so when I figure it out, I’ll post it on instagram ( so keep an eye out for that)

And my final find, what seems like a deadstock, suitcase. The inside is pristine, as well as the outside, which is what makes me believe it has never been used. I was on the look out for a suitcase to make into a bed for Cherry ( my boston terrier), but this one is just too perfect to mess around with. I plan to use this guy on weekend getaways…which one day, I may just have time for 😉

  1. My dad was selling these perfectly adorable pink elephant salt shakers… when I said I wanted them he just gave them to me :). They match my Pinup Girl Clothing Tipsy Elephant Heidi, too.
