Finding antiques in a thrift store doesn’t happen very often..but when I do, it’s a good thrift day for Antique finds in a thrift store!
When there are Antique Finds in a Thrift Store, then you know it will be a good haul. I was pleasantly surprised by what I have found.
Those who know me & know me well know that I love to shop in thrift stores, especially when there are Antiques in a thrift store because I am like a little girl in a candy store and I am always on the hunt for that special piece for my home.
I was so excited to find these antique finds in a thrift store
I spent $32 & was quite satisfied with that and especially for finding antique pieces in a thrift store.
You remember in my last thrift haul I had shared a few items I purchased. Well, let me tell you, that there was this cute little shelf that was there & I contemplated getting it the last time & decided not to because I wasn’t sure how I would use it in my home. Well, when I recently went back the other day it was still there. I had to get it. and I figured I will find a way to display it. I thought it was so cute & after thinking about it, I thought it would make a perfect accent to my kitchen.
Look at the little drawers & how its curved. I just thought it was so darling.
Mason Jars are great Antique Finds in a Thrift Store
Now, y’all know me when it comes to mason jars. I just love them for so many reasons. Look at this antique jar. The glass was so cool, kind of wavy too & has the original metal lid. It has the year 1858 on the glass. How cool, right! I will not use it for storing dry goods, only for decor.
Old Boxes & Crates are Wonderful for Storage
I do have a thing for old boxes & crates and they are wonderful for using for storage or storing memorabilia. This box was so unique & for $15 I could not pass it up. I was trying to figure out what it was originally used for & after some digging, I am wondering if it was used to hold documents at one time. After some research, I found that Boxes like this provided a place to keep valuables, documents, writing implements, books, and small articles of apparel. Furthermore, In the seventeenth century, the boxes are all of the simple five-board nailed construction and have a deep association with America’s so-called “Pilgrim”. A lot of caddies were for storing your most precious heirlooms. However, This can be used for so many things. I am thinking I will use it in my home office. The possibilities are endless for this fun little caddy!
Here is a tip for you!
When you are thinking of items for your home, keep a list of items you are searching for. I will keep a list of items I am in search of on my phone (in my notes app). Then when you are out & about, you will have your list easily accessible. Another tip too, you can also add pics into your app as well. Makes it so much easier without having to remember to grab a list from home before you head out.
I will say this was a fun-filled trip to the thrift store! What do you think about the treasures I purchased? Leave a comment below & tell me what you think!
