Thrift Haul: A Busy Hunting and Yard Sale Weekend

'Twas a busy weekend of errand running, stock organizing, and last-minute gift shopping. I'm working very hard on completing my Twelve Before 2012 list, the tight deadline is keeping me going strong. Here's what I scored this weekend:

Photo 1) Vintage globe and two mushroom candles
Photo 2) Vintage McCoy Pottery pitcher and Antique Japanese Plates
Photo 3) The Cutest Japanese Bunny-on-Rocket Fabric You Ever Saw
Photo 4) Necklaces and charms
Photo 5) Warming up after hosting a long yard sale with udon soup :)

And now I'm off to the hideous shopping mall! I held off until the last second but couldn't find local, hand-crafted, or thrifted gifts for a couple of people on my list. I loved the conversation we had last week about whether it's okay to buy thrifted gifts for the holidays. We agree: any gift that won't be utilized or appreciated is junk whether it's new or thrifted. Thinking of the recipient is paramount. Even if we have to endure the mall to give them something special.

What did you find this weekend?

  5. That McCoy teapot rocks!! Good score, girl! Today was the first Monday in a LONG time I walked out of Salvation Army empty handed (Monday is 1/2 off bric a brac day)The place had been cleaned out! oh well! Got some other good stuff from local on line auctions this past week...

  6. Lori: The teapot was my favorite find, too. I walk out of thrifts empty handed more and more these days, as I'm downsizing and becoming more selective. It's a good thing!
