Hi everyone! I hadn’t gone thrifting in long, long, looooong time since I've been in the decluttering/packing up phase. Last weekend I went to my favorite place to do a little shopping. The weather was gorgeous and it was so much fun to look at all the pretty things. Here are a few pics of what they had and at the end I’ll show you what I got.
I’m so into old outdoor birdhouses right now. Isn’t that a cute one!
I liked this one too, but I didn’t get either since they were waaay more than my spending allowance.
What do you think of this? It’s made from old tires!!!
I think they’re planters (there’s two there – at first I thought it was a weird two-headed swan thing)!
Some more cute outdoor stuff. I saw lots of old painted ladders inside as well.
I just loved this little yellow bench made from a bed!
Also loved this little red cabinet.
There were some fun light fixtures for sale too! I mean really, where would you put that?
This one was pretty because they had a beaded bulbcover on the bulb. Very Frenchy looking!
Wish I had room for this yellow cabinet.
They had quite a few pieces that incorporated burlap. Including a rug made out of burlap that had been stenciled on (couldn’t get a pic of that do to poor lighting).
I’m looking for an old painted ladder to use in my garden as a trellis. All the ones in this store were crazy prices (in my opinion, but maybe they’re hard to find?). I might just buy a new one and I’m sure by next year it’ll look like that one!
I thought this old dishrack was the cutest thing. Great for displaying dishes and cups&saucers on that bottom shelf.
Want to see what I bought?……………..
Almost bought that black vintage scale. But instead I got this cute vintage picture!
$12 and I think it’s just perfect for this spot!
**Moving News – soooo, we’ve pretty much decided to stay put for now due to a number of factors.To complicate matters, our daughter isn’t sure she’s going to stay at SCAD Atlanta for her degree. So that’s going to factor into where/if we move. So for now I’m just going to “bloom where I’m planted” and make the best of it even though this town isn’t exactly my cup of tea.
I do have some fun news to share with you all later this week!
Anyway, thanks for stopping by!
