Thrift Store Score: Paper Pieced Quilt Chunk

I found this cute little piece of a quilt at a vintage store in Napa and bought it for my mom (because I stash only garment fabric and she stashes quilting fabric although I may be known to steal fabric from her stash for each of my own quilt projects making it like a large […]

Thrift Store Scores: California Pottery Vintage Cookie Jars

I originally found this yellow hippo cookie jar at a thrift store in town and bought it as a joke. Shortly after moving into our new apartment, a couple of years ago, I set out for an afternoon walk to the thrift store. Adam asked me what I was looking for and I told him […]

Closet ReOrganization

I have a small closet in my bedroom. And I have to share it with my boyfriend. This has been a point of contention between us since we moved in together, 1 1/2 years ago. We’re both only-children, so sharing space isn’t a strong point for either of us. He thinks that he should get […]

Thrift Store Score – McCoy Bostonian Crocks

I’ve been collecting two-tone brown and tan crocks for our kitchen. I recently found another set at the thrift store that had to come home with me. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I brought home a little bit of American history.

Thrift Store Score

I had to share this sweet thrift store score that my stepmom just made. She picked up these needlepoint ballet dancers initially thinking she would just use the frames. However, by the time she finished painting the bathroom, they had grown on her to the point that she decided to hang them on the wall. […]

Still looking for furniture, I went to the thrift store again on the way home from a not-too-long day in the lab. Guess what I found! The teacups that match the Corelle plates that I found last week! I found a cute little mid-century dresser that fits perfectly in the one little gap in our […]

Thrift Store Scores

This Saturday I went to three different thrift stores. I came home feeling disappointed because I was looking for several pieces of furniture but found nothing that fit the bill, even though I’m willing to refinish, repaint, or otherwise get dirty making it perfect. Looking at what I did come home with, I should have […]

Vintage Pink Samsonite Luggage Set

Accompanying me on my last two weeks of travel was the most delightful set of luggage that I have ever encountered. I actually cried at the vintage/antique store where I found it because I wanted it so bad. (Seriously, I teared up at the thought that I really should have walked away. I didn’t really […]

Thrift Store Scores

I’ve had a rough week in lab. Wednesday was particularly disheartening, so I did what a stereotypical female would do – go for some retail therapy on my lunch break. In my case, I went to the thrift store. I got a gigantic stack of lovely items that definitely helped to put a smile back […]
