I can’t believe how long it’s been since I shared some thrifted finds with y’all! Truthfully, I’ve been on a bit of a “look, but don’t buy” kick, as I continue to edit my belongings (and stick to my budget). That said, here are a few functional items that’ve made the cut.
♥ The graceful lines and mid-century-like starbursts on this vase sold me. Found for $2 at the New to You Thriftique in Golden Valley.
♥ I finally bought pillows for a pair of handmade lace-covered pillow cases I thrifted at Bibles for Missions oh, about three years ago. They were 25 cents a piece (the prices at that place are nuts!).
♥ I scored two ’30s-era Ovenex Starburst-patterned muffin tins at a neighborhood church rummage sale for 50 cents a pop. I gave ’em a workout this morning, whipping out some Cream Cheese-Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread bites for our snow-day brunch. (Both plates pictured are thrifted too.)
♥ My boyfriend thought our old coin jar was too small, so I was “okay Mr. Moneybags!” and got this canister for him and his (never-ending supply of) spare change. Found at the Salvation Army Family Store in Burnsville for $2.99.
♥ I bought this fruit bowl made by Royal China Jeannette at the Savers on Lake Street for $3.99. (The hand embroidered tablecloth was purchased at Treasures From the Heart in Baldwin, Wisconsin last April.) They look good together, no?
♥ I’ll never have enough vases (or things that can act as vases), which is why this circa-1975 souvenir glass from the Treasure Chest Gift & Thrift earned a spot in my cabinet…I think it was $1? P.S. I got that freesia for my Thanksgiving table!!!
♥ Another find from the Savers on Lake Street, this covered basket/nest for our (many) remotes (it was $1.99). The verdict’s still out on whether or not the boyfriend will adopt this store-the-remotes-in-the-basket system. If it’s a fail, to the rummage-sale pile it goes!
