I am so excited to be joining Thrifting with the Gals this week! Each week these 6 ladies share on Instagram the goodies they have found thrifting that week. Since I love thrifting, it is so fun to follow along and I was grateful to be included in their blog hop this week. Come along as I show you 7 of my favorite thrifted finds.
If you are coming here from Rachel at The Ponds Farmhouse, welcome. I am so glad you’re here! And be sure and check out the other thrifting gals to see the amazing things they have found too.
First of all, let me say I am sort of addicted to thrifting! I love finding someone else’s trash and turning it into my treasure. I have found so many amazing things over the years at thrift stores, garage sales, and estate sales.
A while back I shared how I find estate sales and what I like to look for in my post Estate Sale Shopping 101.
I also participated in a Thrifted Finds Home Tour last year, and shared how I add character to my home with thrifted finds that you might enjoying taking a look at.
let’s talk furniture
Let me share a few of my favorite furniture finds in my home. First up, is this amazing shutter door. I found this at a resale shop several years ago. It was in great condition and required no makeover. I love the beautiful natural color and the character it adds to the end of my hallway.
This drop leaf table is another favorite and was purchased at an estate sale. The color was a bit dated, so I did a little makeover and you can see the before and makeover process here.
And I love this little high chair, I bought at a garage sale, used as a plant stand. I was actually just gifted another one, so I will be using it at our new Airbnb cottage.
Perhaps, my most treasured find is this cane back sofa I found for $65. I still can’t believe it was in such great condition and was that price! I had the cushions recovered and removed some of the fabric from the front of the sofa, and she turned out beautiful.
for the love of dishes
Now, here is where my real obsession comes in!! Oh, how I love dishes! My favorite collection is brown transferware, but I also love white ironstone and other colors of transferware too. I love finding unusual patterns of salad plates to use in my place settings. It’s so fun to layer a fun pattern on top of my thrifted white dinner plates.
I found this set of 11 salad plates with an ivy border at a thrift store for $4.94. They were perfect for my garden inspired brunch that I hosted recently. You can see all of the garden themed tablescape here.
As I mentioned, brown transferware is one of my favorites, so you can imagine how excited I was to find this entire set at a thrift store for $14.99!!
And this is how I styled them in my china hutch.
All of these little pretties were purchases on a recent trip to Waco and Round Top, Texas. I didn’t pay more than $7.00 for any piece.
so much character
I think vintage items add so much character to a home. They tell a story and make your home unique. I want to share just a couple of favorites in my home with you.
One, is this vintage tobacco basket. I actually ordered these from a tobacco farm and sold them at my shop several years ago. But recently, I found one behind a thrift store and they gave it to me for free. It will be going in the new Airbnb cottage.
I love the natural element and texture they add to a space.
This is the one currently in my home. And the one below is the one I found in the trash pile and got for free.
And let’s talk about these beautiful chippy corbels! These were purchased at a resale shop for $45 for the pair. I bought them when we were building the farmhouse and they now hold my mantel.
my most recent purchases
Lastly, I want to share a few things I purchased last week. These things haven’t been styled yet, because they will be going in our new Airbnb cottage that is currently being remodeled. Hopefully, I will be able to share them in their new home very soon.
The pie safe was purchased at my neighborhood garage sale for $45 and will look so adorable in the dining area at the cottage.
The adirondack chair was a neighborhood garage sale purchase and was only $5.00! I think it will be great on the back patio.
And this vintage table will get a fresh coat of paint and be a great nightstand. I think it will be super cute with a basket in the bottom.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing lots of vintage and thrifted treasures. Don’t ever underestimate what you might find at a garage sale or thrift store!!
Be sure and check out all the other amazing thrifted treasures from these ladies!!! Next up, is Kristin at White Arrows Home.
blessings and happy thrifting,
Pin it to remember it…..
