Yes, it’s that time again…Thrift Shop Thursday. We are up to #7. This morning my husband asked, “Don’t you need to go Thrift Shopping, it’s Thursday?” Well, I wasn’t planning on it but, hey, he kind of sounded like he wanted me to go shopping and if it makes him happy, I am all for it!
So let’s get this started.
Thrift Shop Thursday #7
First up this Thursday is my brass candle snuffer.
I picked this up at Goodwill (of course) a couple of weeks ago. I have to say I couldn’t wait for the new Goodwill to open but I think I like the old one better. They seem to move the merchandise in and out more rapidly. There is always something new and strange coming in to the store.
Yes, I am still on the gold/brass kick. I think all my little accessories look great on our newly finished IKEA Bookcase that I shared here.
the vintage binoculars I picked up at a shop called Twisted Sister. I orginally bought these for my husband to use down at the Island House but I think they look perfect right here at home. They do look good on the bookcase but we really just never remember to take them when we head to the Eastern Shore. We only remember them when we are looking out at the water and need them!
Next up is an oldie but a goodie! It’s a vintage brass personal ashtray. Many, many years ago I was loving the gold/brass look. See, if you hold on to your junk long enough it will come back into favor again! I have a couple different personal ashtrays around that I like and have had for awhile.
Last up this week is a lamp I found at a consignment shop.
Before we revamped our kitchen this lamp had a burgundy and gold lamp shade that I am now using in our sunroom (for the time being, we are getting ready to revamp that room as well.) I wanted to keep the base and I had some shades that I bought at the same consignment shop years ago. I liked the shape of the lampshade but not the pleated material that was on it. I just cut the outer pleat off and left the inner material intact. I used the same material that I used to recover the bench in the kitchen that you can see here.
Well, that finishes another week of Thrift Shop Thursday. It is hard to believe we are on #7. I am looking forward to school coming to an end this year. I am ready to get down to the Eastern Shore so I can go thrift shopping at some different shops!
I hope you are having a good week and scoring lots of great finds.
Until next time…
