recent thrift finds





Thrift shopping is so hit or miss (for me it's usually miss), but recently I found a few good things and thought I'd share:

1) a mirror with hooks for our front entryway, $3 (I'm thinking of painting it a fun color, but also like it as-is).

2) beaded glass votive. My friend has the same one and I've always loved it. 49 cents.

3). Pride & Prejudice, $4. My favorite novel; I collect both old and new copies. Isn't this cover awesome?


Also, I found this English tennis racket to add to my collection of vintage rackets (I now have a grand total of two :). I love the colors on it.

love it! That racket is total greatness - colors rock! And the book? Divine! As for the mirror and whether or not to paint? I say PAINT! But I always say that. :) xo

Love the mirror. Jealous!

How can you see a used copy of P&P, ever, and NOT buy it? :)

Awesome finds. I recently got into thrifting, so I'm still such a newbie. I'd love to pick your brain about how you go about it. Do you have a plan going in? Do you look at everything? I'd love to know.

P.S. I'm doing a fun giveaway this week. Come take a look if you have a chance

what deals! I say keep the frame unpainted so it will match anything! Also, the tennis racket is adorable...you're right, the colors are lovely.

Those are some fabulous finds! I especially love that mirror. I'm with Kayla. I'd keep it the colour it is...

No way I'd have been able to pass up another copy of Pride and Prejudice either.

What great finds! I love the mirror - I wouldn't paint the frame, the color of the wood looks perfect. Oh, and what a gorgeous book cover. I love how all your finds go so well together :)

I always get so excited when I am going to go "thrifting" but I usually leave empty handed. You got some great things! How neat that you are collecting rackets and I love the mirror you found!
