Thrift Share: Records, Books, and Bits

Vintage Goods from the Thrift Store

Glasses, Records, Books, Vintage Things, Gifts for Friends...

This weekend my friend Fenna and hit up all of my favorite thrift stores in St. Augustine. I was highly selective and put many vintage pretties back, but still ended up with more than I intended...

Beautiful Wrapping Paper from the Thrift Store

I really like this clock and paisley wallpaper I found for .50 cents each. I might use them to line the back of shelves or other crafts. The clocks remind me of Alice in Wonderland somehow.

Colorful fall leaf wax candles

I've never bought candles or scented-type things from the thrift store but these soy ones smell amazing and the colors are very vibrant. I'm going to send some out to whoever wins my Vintage Halloween Giveaway

vintage 70s craft books and art

I tried and tried to resist both "The Creative Family Workshop" and the interesting colorful art plaque next to it. Then I found out the books were half off just bit the bullet. They were $1.50 each. The unique art was $2.00.

  1. Love your blog! I'm a new follower, hope you can follow me back!

  2. I love the clock paper. I can think of so many fun uses for it. Thank you for sharing.

  3. I wouldn't have passed up the books either. I remember buying that Tina Turner album when it first came out!

  4. Urban Chipmunk! I love it! I cannot believe that I never had that album!

  5. I recently stocked up on a bunch of early 60's albums (Steve & Eydie, the Tijuana Brass, etc.) since I had just purchased a new but old-looking Crosley record player. Can't beat a buck per album, and they're about the only thing that the thrift stores around here don't gouge you on. Love the candles--this is my favorite time of year candle-wise since I love all the pumpkin and cedar smells.

  6. A fun selection! I like the look of the glasses, and that paper is really cool!

  7. Those books are great for their spines alone! Great finds :)

  8. Oooooh I love all of your great finds!! The wallpaper is darling, and those candles... CUTE!
    HAppy Tuesday!

  9. I love the green glasses. I have some similar and I love them. I don't think I have many matching glasses which I think is part of the fun of collecting vintage kitchenware.

  10. I'd say you definitely scored here.


  11. PRINCE!!!! That's all I've got to say about that....LOL

  12. Those scented leaves and pine cones you found are super cute!!

    The chipmunks did a punk album? That is hilarious. I remember having a pound puppy album when I was really little too.

    You found a lot of great stuff!

  13. What a score! Love the clock wallpaper! :-)

  14. Wonderful! I love the soy melts!

  15. WOW! Just today I thrifted the entire set of the Creative Family Workshop at the Honolulu Salvation Army! I didn't need it and have no room, but couldn't resist. 24 volumes at $1.00 a volume, can't go wrong. I think if there would have only been a few books, I might have passed, but something about the ENTIRE complete set spoke to me! Very Loudly!


I love reading your comments. Thank you for adding to the discussion! I always reply to any and all questions.
