Amazing friends, you are not going to believe all the goodies I have amassed for this next haul!!
It doesn’t seem like I’ve done a whole lot in the way of hard core thrifting since completing my last haul, but I could not believe all that I had found once I started pulling it all out of the garage!
Here is a look at the whole shebang:
What??? I know, right?
What is most exciting to me about this new haul is that, except for one, these are all new-to-me pieces, unlike my last haul where I had pulled things from the deepest, darkest depths that I had been holding onto for ages. Translation: This one will be SO fun to tackle!!
I found things at thrift stores, estate sales, yard sales, and even had a few items donated by sweet neighbors! I’ve divided them up to share that way!
There’s a lot, so here we go!
Thrift Store Finds
Like I mentioned, I didn’t thrift a whole lot actually, but I had a few good days. I acquired most of my smalls from thrift stores.
First up is this trunk I found for $9.98:
It’s hard to tell scale when you see it alone, but in the photo of everything above, you can see it is a decent size.
On that same trip, I found this spice rack for $3.98:
I always pick those up when I find them since they sell really well.
I also found this cute-as-can-be tree for $4.98:
It doesn’t need much at all!
This mirror was from the same trip also and was $3.98:
Plastic and all, but I love those details!
I nabbed these candlesticks for $9:
They are usually good sellers also!
The next thrift store item I found was this small tray for $2.98:
I picked up this small box on another trip for $4.25:
I usually pick up boxes as they are fun to makeover and they can serve so many purposes!
I also found this pretty clock on that trip for $6.25:
And on that same trip, I picked up this small mirror also for $5.25:
As well as this pair of mirrors for $12:
The rest of the thrift store items are a bit more fuzzy as to what I found together and when, so I’m just going to share them in random order.
I found this basket for half off of $5.25:
This is the only piece I found that was not a new find. This one was hidden in the garage!
This basket was a great find for $3.25, and it is a good size too:
You can see it on the ground in the group photo. I always keep an eye out for baskets!
This one is pretty large too and it was $3.25 also:
This one was more of a good deal than a pretty basket at $2.25, but I thought it was unusual and might paint up cute:
I thought this galvanized metal caddy was cute for $2.25:
The only furniture piece I scored at a thrift store was this antique dresser for $75:
It is literally falling apart though and none of the drawers work smoothly, but I was just so happy to find something I liked that was furniture!
I loved this small shelf for $6.25:
I found several pieces that will work for a smalls post like this wall hanger thingy for $3.25:
And these frames that I paid $2 a piece for:
And also, this large candle holder for $3.25 with half off that:
These lamps were good deals at $5 for both:
This glass tray was originally priced at $10…no way! I got it for 50% off at $5:
It’s okay, but I know paint will help it a lot!
Same goes for this napkin holder I picked up on clearance for $1.98:
Things like this that have a definite function usually sell.
Here’s more candlesticks! I picked up four of these for $8.25 and I already had one that matched:
I like how chunky they are!
And the final item I thrifted, that I already shared a peek of, is this mirror that I picked up for half off. It ended up being $7.50:
Antique Mall Finds
I scored one item, or should I say a pair of items at our antique mall, this beautiful set of rattan chairs:
Would you believe they were only $60 for the pair?? I couldn’t believe it! They were definitely coming home with me! I usually don’t come across great deals like that there!
Estate Sale Finds
I found a few things at estate sales.
The first is this gorgeous antique table I found for $40:
Estate sales have been priced out of my comfort zone lately also, so I usually don’t stop, but this was on a random Friday morning in a tiny house and nobody was there, so I stopped. Glad I did!
These next items all came from the estate sale of my sister’s husband’s late grandfather.
This dressing table is one of two pieces I bought on the first day. I paid $50 for it:
It’s hard to see, but it needs a lot of TLC.
I also bought this bench for $10:
My sister’s MIL wanted to keep this secretary but asked if I would paint it for her:
I said I would in exchange for this piece that was still there on the final day:
I feel like it could be a pretty versatile piece if the top were removed.
My sister also picked up these frames for me that were left over:
I can always use pretty frames!
Yard Sale Finds
My favorite has always been yard sales. Some of ya’ll may remember a time many years ago when I would load up the boys every Saturday and head out first thing to hit up as many yard sales as possible. My oldest would usually have something he was on the hunt for and my youngest would be looking for baked goodies for sale!
I don’t go as often as I used to since I’ve been good and try to work through a whole haul before shopping again, but I went out this past weekend and had fun!
I found this basket for a dollar:
At that same sale, I found this thingy for $2:
I just wanted it for the pretty hooks.
At another sale I found a few things I’m keeping as is, but I also found this cutie for a dollar:
I picked up this pretty oak flatware box at a neighbor’s yard sale for $10:
Then, I hit up another yard sale that was at the end of a dirt road in a barn! Heaven!! It had so much old furniture stuffed in there, but much of it was in disrepair. Had I had the room in our garage, I probably would have grabbed a few more things!
First up is this sewing machine table and matching stool that I scored for $20:
It still has the old Singer machine inside, but I thought it would make a sweet petite dressing table?
I also found this lone antique oak mirror for $5:
I picked up this mirror harp for a dollar:
The lady having the sale laughed when I asked her how much (Most things weren’t priced.) because she didn’t think anyone would want to buy it!
I got the same reaction when I asked about this:
It’s a J.P. Coats drawer or crate front. It was a dollar also.
And so was this sad paper towel holder:
I thought it would be a fun challenge to make this one cute!
This bulletin board she had made wasn’t my style at all, but I loved the huge chunky frame for $5:
And finally, this set of lamps was only $10 for the pair:
We don’t really have flea markets around here so I felt like a real picker ha ha! It was fun!
I love when people think of me when they’re purging!
I had two generous neighbors reach out with items they could no longer use.
First is this high-top pedestal table:
It looks pretty heavy as is, but I though paint would lighten the feel of it.
That same sweet neighbor offered me this pretty box metal as well:
I said yes, please!
Another neighbor offered me this wooden cabinet:
It was leftover from their 80’s decor days, but I think it could be really cute with a little creativity!
And that is all! It’s a lot, right??
I figure this should keep me busy until Christmas! I can’t wait to dive right in!
We’ll be bringing Jack home from college this weekend and I’m so excited to have him home! Doesn’t it seem like we just dropped him off??
I’ll be back with my first piece of this new haul for Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday…this mirror harp thingy!
UPDATE: See what this harp became HERE now!
Have a great weekend, friends, and Happy Mother’s Day to those who fill that roll!!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
