My Latest Finds

Before going out of town this past weekend I did a little thrifting. I try and check the thrift stores often, not as often as I would like though. I live several miles from all the thrift store goodness, but when I get a chance I hit them all up. I’ve even learned which ones are my favorites and which ones have the best prices. Some people will probably find that either really sad and disturbing OR they can relate totally. I view it as a treasure hunt and I get a total adrenaline rush when I find something AWESOME!!!
I digress. After hitting a couple places with no luck I stumbled across this plant stand. It reminded of the the little table that I redid. So for $10, I had to grab it up. I think I will do the same kind of makeover on it, I just need to decide what direction I want to go in. Then I came upon this old silver coffee carafe. It’s tarnished and the top is broken off (which is perfect for what I want). I bought it for……wait for it……$1.91!!!

Here’s a close up of the coffee pot:
White visiting my mom over the weekend I did a little more thrifting. This is the kind of stuff I walk out of thrift stores with:
Some might see junk…..some will see potential……some will see treasures! I try to find good bases to build off of. I know what I like, what catches my eye. Somethings I pass up and end up kicking myself for it. I’m trying to learn….when you see something you like, even if you don’t know what you’ll do with it right away, GRAB IT! It most likely won’t be there when you return.
Stay tuned to see how these items transform!!!
