Welcome to Thrift Shop Thursday #26. Yes, I know today is Friday but I have been running behind all week! Not to mention the fact that I have not posted a Thrift Shop Thursday in several weeks, YIKES! Going to the gym every day is making me lazy!
This weeks treasures come from a few of my favorite places…Goodwill, plus a local consignment shop, HomeGoods and T.J. Maxx. All of my favorite stops after the gym.
So let’s get started with Thrift Shop Thursday #26
My first find comes from Goodwill. I like finding random little bits of basically nothing! I will pick something up that cost mere pennies and think to myself I can use this somewhere for something! That’s why this blue base came home with me. It kind of scares me because I have watched a few episodes of Hoarders. So I guess I am glad that I do have a bit of OCD because that helps me keep everything neat, clean and organized!
When we revamped the sunroom, the bookcases needed an update as well. (I will share more on that in a later post.) I am not even sure what the blue little bowl was used for but it works perfectly as a candle holder.
I picked the white vase up at our local consignment shop. It’s a Kaiser W Germany pottery piece. I thought it was a sweet little vase. I have seen several different variations of this piece on ebay and I definitely did not pay the same price at the thrift shop. That is why I love consignment shopping so much. I love finding great pieces at great prices. I also picked up the white bowl at Goodwill at the same time I picked up the blue bowl, knowing that I was going to use it for a candle holder as well…just more of my little bits of nothing from GoodWill.
I found this vase at HomeGoods. I thought it was really different than anything I have and it looks great in the bookcase in the sunroom too. The Gman said it looks like Davy Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean. Yep, I still like it even after that little comment from the 12 year old!
This was another GoodWill find! I have seen these letters at HomeGoods and T.J. Maxx but they never have the black and gold “K”. As soon as I saw it, I scooped it up but made a promise to myself that this was the very last letter I will put in our home…ever… or until I find another one that I really, really like! I wanted the black and gold one for my office. It’s on my Billy Bookcase and I love it!
Looking at this picture, I can see a lot of my Thrift Shop finds are used to style my Bookcase.
Lastly, I am sharing a clearance item from T.J. Maxx.
I think this is adorable! Usually, I am not one for faux plants but I thought if Joanna Gaines uses them in her design than it’s good enough for me! I struggle with keeping plants alive although not to brag or anything (HAHA) but I still have two Poinsettias that are thriving. Well, actually my husband has kept them alive! I don’t have the patience for it! They are now turning green so I am curious to see how long he can keep them alive. I know what you’re thinking and no it does not look “Chirstmassy” especially now that they are turning green. Maybe I will share it next week because I just bought a silver ice bucket at GoodWill to keep the 2nd plant in instead of my snowman pot. HAHA. I told you going to the gym is making me a bit lazy. Although we did get snow last week so technically the snowman pot did not look that out of place!
Thanks for stopping by Thrift Shop Thursday edition #26. Have a great weekend. I for one am so glad it is Friday!
Until Next Time,
