I'm pretty sure that if I could spend everyday, or at least every OTHER day at a thrift store...I would.
I use to HATE going into thrift stores because the items weren't "new."
But I think it's just a young persons obsession with "new" things...
I spent my afternoon (a good three hours) at Goodwill and Savers (for those Best Coasters, Savers is a HUGE Goodwill. I could burn 6 hours there at LEAST).
While I was more successful at Goodwill,
I blame my lack of time and attention span to my short time at Savers.
There's just so much to look at that I can only go there in shifts.
This is what I found!
|4 new wine glasses, a bottle for salad dressing and|
a cast-iron muffin pan (super old) in the shape of DINOSAURS!
|A green sweater (that I'm currently wearing),|
a nude cardigan and a black jean dress (yes, I say
dress) and this RUSK bag, leather and super nice.
|I love these earrings too.|
I was so excited about all my finds, as usual, but I was the MOST excited about the muffin tin! It's super heavy and when Jake looked at the back, it said made in 1887 or something CRAZY like that.
While I still really enjoy shopping at my favorite stores, like Forever 21 and H&M for good deals, there's something about finding a treasure at a thrift store that makes it all worth while, ya know?
One item I HAD to pass up and was very sad about was this:
Isn't is wonderful?? I wanted it so badly. It was from England too! But it was $30 and I really have no use for it. Jake's really going to hate me as I get older...I'm going to fill our house with things that are pretty yet I don't really need!!
What are some of your favorite thrifty finds??
