My break from the thrift stores is still in-affect. Lately I've been looking for free finds or finds that are as close to free as possible while I go through the process of photographing hundreds of photos for Etsy. The mailbox above was purchased by me at a flea market years ago, I forgot about it until I rediscovered it at my mom's house.
There's an open slot in the back that would have made it perfect in theme and usage to keep for my reselling station, but I put it in my Southern Crossing booth where it promptly sold.
These letters were a free gift from a reseller I met while curbside shopping amid the grand houses a few minutes away from me, close to the St. John's river. The large "C" already sold.
I love finding giant letters, fun for crafts and home decor and they typically sell well.
She kindly gave me this red sign as well as lots of buckets of paint and spray paint she wasn't using!
The wooden shelf was rediscovered along with the toy post office box at my mom. I bought it when I moved into my first apartment at 20, it used to hold spices right above the stove. 'Twas an ancient, odd, ghetto little place to live but we had a lot of fun. Brings back memories! The cowboy bear above was another free find, a gift from a former reseller friend a while back. I'm not above selling my past so the shelf is in my Southern Crossing space waiting for a new owner.
So tell me, what did you score at the thrifts? If you like any piece you see, e-mail me, it's all for sale!
