Since visiting a local thrift store for Young House Love’s (YHL) Thrift Store Challenge, I’ve visited the same, hidden thrift store a few times. Each time I shop there, I see several things, think them over, and then scurry back hoping that they are still available.
Well, luckily for me, this particular thrift store is a bit of a secret, as it is housed in an abandoned Royal Farms store that looks as though it is still boarded up. Odd and it sounds more shady than it really is, but great for my frugality and indecision.
(I often struggle with wants versus needs and put off purchasing items I see the first time, despite my impulse to buy.)
So, this last time I visited, I spent only $8.00, but found some items that were haunting my decorating mind since my first visit.
Here are my goodies:
A pair of cross-stitched birds sweetly framed.
A couple of coordinating vases:
Apparently, I have a bird fetish when decorating. Who knew?
I’m thinking these sweet creatures could find a nice little home in my
bird sanctuary living room. I am so pleased that these lovely items didn’t fly the coop before I could cage them.
I’d like to change up the mantle and fireplace wall a bit and these are the perfect jumping off point.
So, anyone else on a thrift store kick, since the challenge?
Until next time…, happy thrifting!
