I decided to hit up some thrift stores with some girlfriends today. Apparently MLK is also code for sale at all the thrift stores. I’m pretty sure we waited in line for a total of 45 minutes between the 3 stores we visited, but boy was it worth it! Here are a few of my favorite treasures I found along the way:
This wind chime was actually in a bag marked “owls” for $2.00. I wasn’t sure what it was until I took it out of the bag, but $2.00? How could I pass it up? Side note: The windchime was actually a package deal- I also acquired an interesting group of owl ornaments and figurines (one even missing a foot). It’s a win / win.
My husband collects vintage liquor glasses, or rather I collect them in hopes he will start collecting. This glass read “1930 Packard”, and keeping it company is a misfit owl from the aforementioned “owl” bag.
I also picked up a picture of Jesus to add to my “Jesus wall”, a red and white striped sailor shirt with a pirate scull on it (I’m sure it was a child’s shirt), and some velvet loafers. All in all I think it was a really successful day.
PS: Get excited; I heard through the grapevine (read: advertisement) that Goodwill will be having a Presidents Day sale. If this is anything like today’s MLK sale, get ready to find some great deals.
Have you taken advantage of any thrift sales lately? What did you find?
