Back in November, I took ya’ll on a thrift store field trip to see what I could find for my next big haul. You might want to revisit that trip HERE first because today, I’m going to share what came home with me!
I saw a ton of goodies, but I’m cheap so not everything made it to the checkout. Here is what I brought home!
The first thing I found was this Bombay table on my first stop at the Goodwill closest to our house:
Ya’ll know for 50% off of $15.25 that I wasn’t leaving without this one! All this needs is a simple paint job.
I didn’t share this lamp in that post, but you may have seen it in my cart. It was $5.25:
I love lamps for my booth because they add nice soft lighting and they usually sell well for me.
I showed ya’ll this lamp, but didn’t buy it that day. I did, however pick it up on my next trip in:
It was still there and half off of $5.25, I really should have grabbed it on the first stop.
I also bought this tray for $3.25:
I rarely pass up a wooden tray!
And I picked up this wooden box for $5.25 on that same trip:
Remember what else I found on that trip?? My Meowy Catmas sweater! I sure did rock that thang at our annual Christmas Eve family gathering:
One of the cats looked just like Lyla! Haha!
That was a great start, but I wasn’t so lucky at the next stop, the DAV on my side of town. I did spy this night table just as I was leaving:
It was $27 and I thought I could pair with these $12 headboards that I redid with transfers. They both sold already though!
I made my way to one of my favorite thrift stores next where I spied a couple of gorgeous dressers for $99 each, and I know that is not a ton of money for a dresser, but I decided to pass on them and left empty-handed.
The next stop was the Salvation Army across the street and I found several pieces there, but a couple needed too much work and some were just more than I wanted to pay, but I did buy this petite secretary for $34:
Remember it had unmentionables hidden inside at the thrift store?
It needs a little tightening here and there, but I think it could be a really sweet piece!
I also bought this cookbook holder there:
I have bought a few of these…they are easy sellers, so I decided to buy this one too for $3.99.
Next, I headed to another thrift store by my Mom’s house that usually is lucky for me. I shared a couple of things I saw at that store, but I only ended up buying this flatware chest:
Ya’ll knew I would buy that, I’m sure! (And because I told you I was buying it!) I especially love them when they have a drawer. It was $5.
The next day, my sister was feeling generous since I had been helping her with her kitchen and she offered to come thrifting with me! I saw some great pieces there as well, including several chairs, but only this one for $15 made it home with me:
I love the style of it.
Also remember this huge mirror?
Unfortunately, the wind blew it over and the frame cracked…
I told ya’ll it was windy at our house! I am hoping it will be an easy fix. For around $28 after my sister’s military discount, I thought it was worth getting for the size of it.
Then just before Christmas, I shared this picture on my Facebook page:
I was supposed to be Christmas shopping, but I couldn’t resist sneaking in a thrift store stop and found this beauty for a steal at $25:
Now that is in my price range! It has some veneer damage on the drawer, but that can easily be remedied. I can’t wait to tackle this one!
And just last week, I stopped back in at the DAV on our side of town and came home with a carful:
I found this desk for $35:
I also found this huge round tray:
I think it was around $5…I’ll have to see if the price is still on the bottom. It is already pretty cute, but I think it still has some hidden potential.
I also found this tray with a weave look to the bottom for $4.95:
This probably just needs a simple paint job too. Trays always sell quickly for me, so I rarely pass them up!
I also picked up this interesting case for $4.25:
It held a gift set at one time:
And finally, as I was pulling around the back to load up my desk, I spied these night tables that had just been dropped off:
Mama want!! I told the guy I was interested and he said, “How does $10 each sound?” SOLD!! I’m sure they would have been much more had they made it to the sales floor. I actually redid a set very similar to this that I found at an estate sale several years ago:
You can see how they turned out HERE!
And finally, this lone oar:
My in-laws were getting rid of several things at a flea market a few years ago, and I nabbed this oar. I finally grabbed it and shoved it in with this haul to get it out of my storage room!
And that is my new Winter haul!! Hopefully I can get it all done before Winter ends!
Beginning in January of last year, I started working through thrifty hauls one by one, crossing items off as I went. I love this way of keeping myself accountable and plan to do the same this year, and I can’t wait to get started!
But before I start on my new haul, I have one more piece I will be sharing. This is a cabinet I worked on this week for one of my dearest friends:
I may as well share it since it’s a makeover too, right? Actually, I would have included it in the photo with my newest haul, but there wasn’t enough room!
UPDATE: See how this huge cabinet looks now HERE!!
I’ll be back with this piece on Tuesday, and then I’ll be back on Thursday with my Furniture Fixer Upper girls sharing a furniture piece from this haul! Anything you’d like to see tackled first??
Have a great weekend!!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
