Welcome back, thrifty friends!!
On Tuesday I finally shared my Mother’s Day haul and what a haul it was!! Today, I’m sharing what I found on my first thrifting day out post shut-down. I’ll be working on both of these hauls simultaneously since one is mostly larger furniture pieces that need some TLC and the other is all smalls.
I teased ya’ll with this shopping cart loaded down from that first day back thrifting:
This is my favorite thrift store closest to my house and it took a while to finally open back up. However, they had still been accepting donations so I knew it would be loaded down with goodies. I just happened to be driving by the first day it opened and I had to stop! I had missed thrifting SO much!
Here’s everything I found that day.
My first find was this clock:
It is a great size, especially for $6.25. That is a fantastic deal for a pretty good sized clock!
I always browse the basket aisle and I found this small picnic basket for $4.95:
I found two ironstone pieces. The first was this very large pitcher that likely went with a bowl:
I paid $6.25 for it. Aren’t those details so pretty?
The second ironstone piece I found was this tea pot that matches a pattern I already have several pieces of, also for $6.25:
I picked up this sweet coaster set for $2.25 and I actually already have a plan for it:
This olive tree is looking a bit sad, but I was drawn to it for some reason:
For $6.25, I decided to bring it home and see if I could do anything with it.
I am always a sucker for metal baskets, and on this trip, I spotted three of them!
First up is this one that has a cute shape to it:
It was only $2.25.
Next up is this very heavy duty industrial looking one I picked up for $8.25:
That’s a lot more than I would normally pay, but I noticed some things weren’t priced quite as reasonably as they usually are and I really liked this one!
And finally, this one is my favorite of the bunch:
It looks like it might have some age to it. It was $6.25.
I also found this pretty, decorative bottle for $2.25:
I’ll probably just stick that one in my booth as is.
Same with these little ceramic starfish I found for $2.25 for the pair:
I also found this silver tray for $2.25:
I see these trays all the time, but I love when they have feet!
Next is this set of bookends:
Looking at that price tag of $7.25, I must have been high on thrifting after not having been able to for months, that I didn’t even care! I know I’ll make my money back when I sell them though!
This gold box is one I’ve redone in the past:
It sold quickly, so I grabbed this one too! Not too bad at $5.25, and all it needs is a quick paint job.
And finally, the last piece I found on that day was this pretty shelf:
It was only $3.95.
These next two pieces were not part of that day’s haul. I picked these up just prior to the shut-down.
The first is this wooden box I bought for $3.25:
And how about another basket? I passed on this the first time I saw it when it was $5.25, but I picked up on the next trip when it was 50% off:
I love the shape of it and the base is the ideal color for paint!
And that is my Post Shut-down Thrift Store Haul! I will work on these smaller pieces in between furniture pieces since I have a feeling those are going to be time-consuming and I will be ready for a few simple smalls. Plus, my booth is in dire need of some smaller items!
Oh and that poly-fil was $2.25…not super cheap, but I always like to keep some on hand and my supply is low.
I hope it was fun seeing everything I found on my first trip back thrifting!
I started prepping this tall dresser from my Mother’s Day Haul yesterday:
It’s looking (and smelling) better already! I’ll see ya’ll back here on Tuesday with the reveal if all goes well!
UPDATE: All went well and it is a beauty now!! See it HERE! 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend, and to my friends in the US, Happy Independence Day!! Be safe!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
