Thrift Haul: Colorful Thrifted Finds From a Thrift Store Adventure


One week ago a friend invited me on yet another thrift-hopping trip. I took the bait and traveled from store to store, taking advantage of their "sales." I gave thrift stores a second chance...and they failed me again. Sure, the desirable vintage find are plentiful, but those prices, I can't get around them!

I do the finds from last week, though. I got an amazing deal on the mod sugar and cream pitchers and the gorgeous vintage shelf mirror. I own a couple of them and I love to use them to display my toys.  And more wooden hangers, too? I love those! I hang art prints from my friends with 'em.


I took some "shocking" pictures on this thrift adventure that I'll share with you later in the week. For now, I'm off on yet another expedition to south Florida with my friend Greg. We'll be sure to stop by their IKEA and a desirable thrift stop or two before coming back to Jax! I'll leave ya with a photo of the funny face Miss Yuko was making at me while I was taking photos of my finds. I love that cat. Even when she's judging me.


Remember: Everything I list on these posts are for sale. E-mail me if you're interested in anything you see! I also host daily deals on Facebook and Twitter.

What did you find this weekend?

    1. I've already sold this same scale twice, hot seller. I guess it wins of cuteness points. But every time it sells I'm tempted to keep it because it might make a nice postal scale.

    I love the shelf and your toys! And I recently acquired some wooden hangers like those you are showing...for when I actually list some of the really great clothing I've been stashing for a while! Have fun thrifting! - PS - I can't believe Yuko talks to you like that! Actually, I can...I have FIVE very bad cats myself...all the sass I get...sheesh!

    1. I'm going to use mine for taking pictures of scarves I'm selling online, like the ones on the table in this post :)

  6. I like the scarves.The red,white, and blue one with the tennis rackets would be great to wear while watching the Olympics.I just wish I knew how to wear a scarf without feeling like a dork.I have a friend who wears scarves all the time and looks fantastic...I'm jealous that I can't seem to pull it off.

    1. I rarely pick up scarves, but these ones were too pretty to resist. I think I finally learned how to pull off scarves this year, they help you stretch a limited wardrobe.

  8. Awww, Yuko is so precious, you are lucky to have such a sweetie! Her little paw hanging over the edge of the scale really tugs at my heart... I hope she keeps you company for a very long time! Very creative idea with the wooden hangers, I never would have thought of that. I love those mirrors with shelves, they look really nice if you paint them black. Makes them look kind of art deco.

    1. The Yuko cat definitely keeps my friends and I amused. I may definitely try the mirror in black if it doesn't sell quickly in it's natural wood grain.

  10. I just found a train case - yay! I love the red though, mine is gray Samsonite.

    I have the same Gemco cream and sugar - they're huge, aren't they?

    1. They're big enough to hold cream and sugar for one year! ;)
