I’m back this week to share some more of my scores from the thrift store. This weeks finds come from Goodwill, of course, and a local antique and consignment shop. I think I will start with my Goodwill treasure. As soon as a saw it, I knew I had to have it and it was worth every dollar, all 4 of them to be exact!
Thrift Shop Scores
I am obsessed with this white enamel pot. The lid slides into a locked position and it is actually a strainer. My husband took one look at it and said, ” Oh good, you’re making pasta tonight.” I said, “I bought it because it looks good on the stove and no, we are not having spaghetti tonight.” This baby cleaned up nicely and yes I will use it for more than just a pretty prop on the stovetop…just not today.
I am thinking it will be a pretty prop for a few more days!
In this photo the following items are from Goodwill:
- The bread board behind the wreath above the cooktop
- The white enamel pot
- The pizza-board on the counter
- The Hearth and Hand White Enamel Hot Cocoa Pot
- The white pot holding the faux greenery (faux greenery is from IKEA)
The next item came from a local antique shop. This thing took over 4 weeks to get home due to the size of it. The shop owner and I tried every which way to fit it into my car but it was a no go. Luckily for me, a dear friend was able to put this monster in her suburban. I must say, a few people were skeptical when they saw it before I cleaned it up. Here she is…
A few things about this ladder,
- It’s from the old Bell telephone company.
- The shop owner said it was 10 feet tall.
- I didn’t measure it.
- My ceiling is 11 feet tall.
- The ladder is actually closer to 13 feet tall.
- I discovered this when I tried to fit it into the room.
- My husband trimmed the excess from the top and bottom of the ladder so it would fit.
I will do an extra post on the before and after of this ladder and show you how I am going to style it. I was excited to share it today though.
Also, notice the little canvas bag on the small table on the hearth. I picked it up at another vintage/consignment shop. To me, it is one of those items that is kind of ugly and unique but I find it charming.
I can’t remember if I shared it before but the table is a Goodwill find, it was actually a Target Salvage.
The last item I am sharing, is a small, round wooden bread board. It came from the same vintage/consignment shop as the “charming” canvas bag. I love this little shop. It is only open the first weekend of every month. It is always exciting to go and see what new and unique things they have.
I am loving the wood against all the white. I love the dimension it adds!
Oops, I lied…one more thing to share that I picked up at the same shop. It’s not vintage or used, two of my favorite things but I still wanted it!
Someone in the neighborhood walked by as I was standing on my front porch taking this photo. Yep, that was me, the crazy lady taking pictures of my doormat with my feet in the photo to be relevant on instagram. Any who, that is the latest installment of all my thrift shop scores and more. I hope you enjoyed seeing my treasures.
Until Next Time,
