Thrift Haul: Groovy Mushrooms, Mod Furniture, and Much More!


Oh, flea market, I missed you so! Even though I didn't  make it to the flea market until later in the day (we arrived at noon) I made my rounds and came home with wonderful groovy goods to resell while paying far lower prices than the average Goodwill. 



"Groovy" is the perfect word to describe this stunning tennis racket tote bag. I've never seen anything like it! I'll be selling this one for $20.00. This bag is so much more stylish than the bland, utilitarian, name-brand billboard style bags you pay three times as much for at a specialty shop these days.



No way I could resist this large animated kitschy kitten or woodgrain planter with mushroom motif. I'm selling the kitten and planter for $10.00 each. 



I found another mod night stand/side table for a song. Again, I'm tempted to keep this piece but I'm going to sell it locally for about $17.00 instead.




The vintage portable file folder is tin in wood grain, very lightweight and attractive. I also love the shape of the huge black mod-style lamp. I'm going to fill the two pipe planters with handsome air plants. I'm selling the porta-file for $7.00, the pipe planters for $10.00 and the lamp for $15.00.




I was also pleased to find a couple of large suitcases for a sinfully great deal. They'll need a little work and cleaning. I might make these into fun side tabels or displays for future arts/craft shows. 




My planter fetish knows no bounds! I'd never seen anything quite like the somewhat masculine "basket weave" planter. I'd love to see it filled with some greenery soon!



The sweet flower mod pitcher isn't something that normally sells for me in the shop, but we'll see what I can get for it. I'm selling it for $12.00. The cool Florida souvenir cup will be $5.00. I love the realistic wood grain!


This cute set of mini drawers with loosely drawn mod illustrations reminded me of hand-painted Japanese sewing boxes called kiri (See a simular one of one of my favorite blogs, Just Hungry). I'm selling it for $8.50.


This gorgeous mushroom tray is a lucky decently-priced thrift store find that I accidentally left out of last week's post. It's a stunning, moody piece. I'm letting it go for $15.00.



Mushrooms are a theme in this haul! They don't sell as well as they used to in the shops, but I don't care, I absolutely love them. I like the puffy yarn, saturated warm hues, and charming snail and frog in these two needlepoint pieces. I'm selling the pair for $9.00 since I paid a bit more than I usually would for these two.




And with this haul alone you see I have lots to price, clean-up, craft with, get into my shops, and get listed online. But first I'm rushing out to meet a friend to explore one of the biggest Thrift Stores in town! Time to hit it! 


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.

    1. I'm tempted to keep the night stand myself, but a reseller's job is to sell wares, not keep it ;)

    Love the metal porta-file. I have that same wood-grain one, a green one, and a tartan plaid one (my fav, obviously). So I guess we have to add one more thing to the list of vintage items I can never resist. I couldn't thrift last weekend but I did a little on Tuesday. I found an awesome ceramic butter dish in a bamboo/tiki theme, a leather-trimmed Polaroid Land Camera (my fave!), some black & white harlequinn leather pumps, and some beautiful new name-brand purses for myself. (Including a Dolce & Gabbana fake that I'm going to totally pass off as the real thing until it falls to pieces, probably within 2 weeks.)
