When you have very little money to spare on decorating, the thrift store can be your best friend. I have gotten so many really great things at the thrift store! I don’t know what I’d do if there were no thrift stores! I’d have a pretty empty house (which might be a good thing 🙂 ).
Sometimes (most times) I come away with nothing. The trick is to try to go frequently. I had a really good week thrifting last week since I was in and out looking for some art work to use on this project. I thought I’d share two of my finds with you today.
This pattern….I found a bowl and two plates a few years ago and last week I found two more plates!
I just love this pattern!
Doesn’t it just say “I belong on a table in a Farmhouse”!
So now I have 4 plates and 1 bowl – that’s thrifting! You’re very lucky if you find a complete set of dishes. These were originally from Wal-Mart available in one of those box sets that they sell. Unfortunately that was around 2004/5ish. They really should bring this pattern back don’t ya think!
The other thrifting treasure I want to show you is this vintage rooster vase I found.
Isn’t he something! I added him to my rooster collection that I have on the top of my Ikea bookcases.
Eventually I’d like there to only be vintage chickens/roosters on that shelf. I have a couple of big ones I put in the back that are new. One day I’ll have real chickens but for now these will have to do.
I’m very happy with my thrift store purchases. I found a few other things that I’ll save for another day!
