Epic Thrift Wish List: What Are You Looking for at the Thrifts?
I've purged, sold, and downsized, and now it's time for the best part...refilling the gaps! The apartment is looking seriously empty and my inventory is (thankfully!) dwindling. It's time to get back to the vintage hunt full force after a thrift hiatus. This is my Epic Thrift Wish List!
1) VINTAGE ART Especially metal signs, anatomy/science posters, and colorful bold pieces for impact. Source
2) KAWAII MOD: Only the boldest, kawaii-est, swinging 60s Asian and non-Asian neon goodness. Source
3) HUGE ROBOTS: I need plenty of huge robots for decor and projects. And toys in general! Source
4) CREDENZAS: I'd love a mod credenza for a TV stand and another as a hallway table. Source
5) MOD LAMPS: One for my desk and a matching set for my bedroom. Source
6) NIGHT STANDS: It would be nice to have a MATCHING set for a change. I've never had 'em. Source
My roommate and I were going to "splurge" on a cheap retail one since my ONE couch isn't enough when guest drop in, but I decided to hunt for a used one instead in case my Yuko Cat gets claw happy. No point in destroying a new one! I'd love any like the three beautiful ones above from Urban Outfitters.
Beautiful room all-around, but my obnoxious orange arrow points to my heart's desire, a white shag rug. (Image Source.) I'm 'a hunting for area rugs to define spaces, protect the floor, and just warm up the space. Post-purging it's getting quite sterile in here.
What's on your thrift Wish List? Whether for resell or keeps, do share! I also want picture frames for my Batman/Dragon Ball Z calendar pages, small furniture to paint, and lots of cloth napkins to sell...
