I love to thrift & antique shop. In this post, I will show you my latest thrift haul & how I use them in my home for decor & for intentional use!
I always have the itch to go thrifting or antiquing. I guess I get it from my Mama! 🙂
Before I head out shopping to make the best of my experience, I make a plan & I note what shops I will visit & I have my list of things I’m searching for, and if I’m looking for large pieces of decor or furniture, I will have my measurements on hand.
With the busyness of my full-time home business, I usually shop on the weekends. The thrift and antique stores tend to close early during the week and I rather shop on weekends anyway, that way it gives me more time to browse and enjoy my shopping experience without feeling rushed.
New found shop
There was this antique shop I learned about and was looking forward to checking out and was really disappointed when I finally got there. I found them to be a bit pricey & for some of the items I was interested in, I know I could get a better price elsewhere. I ended up leaving and making my way to the Liberty Thrift store that was about a mile or so up the road and I was pleasantly surprised with how large the space was.
As soon as I walked in, I saw this really cool antiqued wheelchair, but unfortunately, I have no need for something like this, but it was cool nonetheless.
The thrift store offers a section of antiques & higher-priced items. I stumbled across this bowl & I loved it; however, it was $25. I initially walked away from it and continued to peruse the store, but the entire time I was thinking about that bowl. Somehow, in the end, that bowl landed in the cart! That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it! Really though, I decided that I had to have it! It will be perfect to raise dough for when I’m baking bread! Making bread is my new favorite thing by the way! So there! It was well worth the $25 I spent!
I was excited
In my kitchen, I have a collection of rolling pins that I collect & do use and to complete my rolling pin collection, I was looking for another one that was a bit smaller than the others I have. I was ecstatic to not only find what I was looking for, but the $2 price tag was the icing on top!
Wreaths can be pricey and I cannot fathom spending $45 for a wreath. As you all are well aware by now, I am always on the hunt for a bargain! And this fall wreath was definitely a bargain at only $4. Not only was it a good price, but it was also in great shape too! It will be a great addition to my front door when autumn returns.
We have a few oil lamps in our home that we often use. One of my recent finds was an oil lamp globe for $1. I don’t really need it right now, but there have been times when they accidentally break and I had to purchase new ones and they can be a bit pricey. So, for $1, I purchased it and will put it away, because accidents always do happen.
I also bought the book Angela’s Ashes. I had this on my list of books I wanted to read. For $1.50, you can’t beat that!
I hope this post inspires you for your next trip to the thrift store. Let me know what you think of my thrift finds in the comments below.
