You all know that thrift shopping is one of my favorite activities (Glenn would say shopping, period. He's probably not too far off). I just love the treasure hunt aspect of it. I find is such a thrill, especially at an amazing price! I find gorgeous things for my home at a fraction of what I'd have to pay retail.
Some of my favorite thrift store finds include the centerpiece of our living room, the tuscan painting, found this year for $40
Dozens of decorative plates through the years
Silver of all kinds and pitchers
Lets not forget our dining room set, $130 for the table & 6 chairs
I was at one of my local thrift shops recently and spied these gorgeous items. How stunning would this be on a mantel or in a dining room? $6.90!
I found 2 different sets of Spode plates on 2 occasions. The top set: $9.90 for both. The bottom: $6.90 each.
In the past, I have found lamps, lamp shades, Calphalon bakeware, an extra mixing bowl for my Kitchen Aid mixer, baskets galore, the previously mentioned silver, picture frames, books for display and reading and much more.
And, don't even get me started on clothes at thrift shops...this is post about home decor. Let me just say on the subject of clothing that I got $200 worth of clothes from the Gap, Loft and Target this week for $45. And, I often find Lilly Pulitzer, Hanna Andersson and Lands End dresses for Hope for $10 and under.
