If you are a lover of thrift stores like me, it's always interesting to see what other people find there, and most importantly, how little did they pay for it.
So I thought I'd show you a few things that I've thrifted lately.
I'm always fascinated by textiles. I saw this quilt thing, it looked brand new and was made in Germany.
It took me a little bit to figure out why there was a zipper in the shape of a rectangle in the middle, but it's a new way of doing a Quillo. Might be very handy for camping. $2
This down duvet came with a cover and was $8. I always wash the fabric stuff. It took quite a while in the dryer, with a clean dog Kong crashing around in there to help fluff it up, but it eventually dried.
Brand new leather purse. $1. I like my purses small and with a long strap so I can put the strap over my head and on the opposite shoulder. Fashionable it isn't.
Silver plated Christmas decoration (without the ornaments) $1.50. I found 7 glass tea light holders for it for under 70 cents.
Large glass vase thingy $2, and the red and silver ornaments $1.50
Crocheted vintage cushion $1
It goes well on my redone chair
Wall hanging rug thing, $2.50
Wall clothes hanger thing. $1.50
Sachets of lavender of a ribbon, with machine embroidery lavender stems on it. 50 cents. I was hoping it would help me sleep better, but no luck with that. Even put it in my pillow case one night. It smelled lovely as I tossed and turned during the night:(
Soap dispenser. 25 cents at a garage sale. Unfortunately garage sale season coincides with farmers market season, so I don't get to go to many of those any more.
I had actually bought a brand new brushed steel dispenser for this bathroom, and it kept getting rust spots on it. No problem with this dispenser.
Next weekend my favourite thrift store is having a half price sale. I'll be there:)
