Since moving to Milwaukee, I have been thrifting regularly.
My Goodwill has great stuff.
I went antiquing and even explored the local junk shop with my MIL (I had a lot of fun - we need to do it again next time you visit!)
And I hit up the Salvation Army on my last trip to my mom and dad's.
I'm just going to share a few of my spoils...I'm happy to say I have plans for almost everything :)
willow basket - SA - I'm thinking a laundry basket for the guest room
four drapery panels - SA - love that vintage print! planning on using this in my office
for rent sign - found this at the junk shop, it still has a Marshall Fields tag on back - 35 cents!, hanging this on the guest room door
white bowl - SA - pretty sure this is unmarked Haeger, right now it's a catchall for dead batteries and soup labels in my kitchen
crock - GW...no real plans, but it was a crock, I couldn't pass it up!
book - GW - Eat, Pray, Love...I am the last woman on Earth to read this book, but I got it for less than a buck ;), and I won't get a fine when I drop it in the bathtub
little elephant - junk shop - I collect cream colored, American pottery...love this little Shawnee piece!
needlepoint - SA - yep, I've got a small collection of these as well...I should hang them up
I didn't thrift these, but I did get them for free...it's a good sized bunch of Red Rose Tea, Wade Figurines. They came from my mom, and were collecting dust in the basement, so I saved them ;) I'm brainstorming what to do with them...I love the colors of the glazes...and I have so many memories of my mom and Grandma collecting these little freebies!
little table - GW - this is solid, American made furniture, and it was $6 - cheaper than flat pack! It's sitting in the garage, I'm in the middle of refinishing it, and then it will be a perfect printer stand in my office.
Have you found any thrifty goodies lately?
