I’ll admit, I don’t frequent thrift stores. Like….I never go! They sort of freak me out. But I do recognize the fact that there are some serious treasures out there to be found. I am constantly reading on some amazing blogs about all the wonderful things they find at thrift stores for soooooo cheap! The handful of times I’ve been to a thrift store I’ve never been able to find anything worth my time.
Sometimes I think to myself, “I want in on that action”!
So yesterday Emily and I packed up and headed to a little town called Havana. It’s about 20-3- minutes from where I live. We went there because I wanted to go to this super cute children’s boutique called Sassy & Bud. Local mamas……if you haven’t been there yet, you MUST GO! Such cute stuff! Ok, I’m getting off topic…..
Anyway, on our way up to Sassy & Bud I passed a
junkyard thrift store called Secondhand Sandies. I got the willies and kept on driving. It just didn’t look like the kind of place I wanted to stop and take my baby into. Well, on the way back we obviously had to drive by it again. I kept driving. But something, I don’t know what, but something told me to turn around and go back. I mean, what was there to lose, right? I figured I’d just pop in for 5 minutes and check it out.
I’m so glad I did!
I finally had some luck!!
I got 3 amazing milk glass pieces!!!
First up, this stand! I love, love, love it! It was $9. A little pricey for a thrift store (I thought), but the lady said it was antique. Who knows. I can’t wait to put some cookies on this bad boy!
Next is this small bowl. It needs some cleaning, but with some soap, water, and a sponge I bet this thing will shine like new! It’s perfect for holding jewelry and/or other small trinkets. And at $2, I couldn’t pass it up!
This is another small bowl/cup/thingy-ma-bob. It has a textured print on the outside. So neat! I love it. $3 for this beaute! This will look great on top of a stack of books or something.
I am so glad I stopped! The thrift gods finally smiled on me. Now I’m kind of itching to go see what else I can find!
Have you had any killer thrift store finds lately?
Happy Friday!!! Have a great weekend!!
