First of all I should say that I have forgotten what all I got at thrift stores in the past month! That either means that they’ve been integrated into to daily use so well that I don’t think anything of it, or that it’s shoved in a closet somewhere. Probably some of both.
Never fear, though. I have plenty to show you. The same day I found my perfect table, I got this cute little cafe cart for $7. I’m currently testing it out in my master bath, where, I must say, it looks pretty cute.
I got this coffee table from a craigslist ad for $30, to replace the one from Ikea (I love Ikea!; it was just getting banged up). I like the plank top and the openness of the bottom shelf, so you can still see floor and it takes up less space visually.
Just in the last few days I’ve decided to start collecting a few vintagy-y mirrors for something I have in mind. I paid less than $1 for the middle one, and the other 2 were right about $6/ea. The one on the right I think really is old; it has a very pretty frame and beveled edges.
Just this morning (Wed.) I really hit the jackpot at my consignment store outlet. Clockwise from back left: 2 fair isle wool sweaters for felting, pink cable knit Ralph Lauren sweater either for me or to felt, brown Dockers pants, Ann Taylor tan corduroy pants, really pretty sport coat for Craig, soup tureen, 2 pairs of real suede pants to repurpose, argyle sweater w/ collar, Old Navy t-shirt with crown design, Target long sleeve t-shirt. Total: $17.
And, I went to United Volunteers for 25% off everything. I got this pair of Gap pants, the large letter A, the ceramic sled for Dixie, who has recently started a collection, the skinny mirror above, plus 2 binders for Firstborn. With the discount, the total was $7.20.
Well, I hope some of you remembered my party and are ready to link up. I don’t mind if you use an old post if need be.
