My weekends tend to be Friday and Sunday with working on Saturday. Granted, it is all just a fluid work, live, fun situation with little distinction. I feel when I am working is is often fun and when I am having fun I am often thinking about work or getting inspired. Around here the garage sales start bright and early on Friday mornings. So you can grab a cup of coffee, have a few adventures, and...
This week my favorite garage sale find was this antique ice bucket. It is lined with glass and the guy said he thought it was from the 1920’s but who knows. And for $4!?! I am very happy with it.
A Rarity...a Modern Vanity
Although it is $399 it is really rare to see a modern vanity.
Can you say classic? $1299.00
Dylan Dining Table
Pricey…but great and unique. $899
super cute. $26.95 right here.
Shopping CB2 new items
I love these candle holders $24.95 each. I want the 5 candle holder x 2 : ) and look at these little cute vases. Only $4.95 each
I just mentioned this on twitter and it’s true, it takes a lot of self restraint for me not to buy a light pink tufted settee and matching bench for $300 or best offer. BUT it really has far more usability then it first appears to. Yes, there is the obvious option of having both pieces in your living room or bedroom, but there are other options as well. You can break the set...
About $130 and some time to drive PART FIVE
My favorites. I saw this blanket out of the corner of my eye at an antique mall and made a beeline for it. I was prepared for it to be quite pricey. To my complete surprise it was $18, really large, in perfect condition, and reversible!! I prefer the very light pink side. And my other favorites don’t cost a thing. They are the heart rocks we search for every time we are at the...
About $130 and some time to drive PART FOUR
Ceramics. I was on the hunt for ceramics for sure…these three were from three different thrift stores (well two thrift stores and a garage sale) and the cost a grand total of $3.50 and I couldn’t be happier with this little trio. thrifted a bit earlier and were a total of $3 again, not from the same place but feel like they are quite the pair a handleless mug that I really...
About $130 and some time to drive PART THREE
The Fragile Things I’m gonna say it…these geodes rock my world. Yep, that happened. I heart decanters in a big way…two of these were earlier beach trips and one was from goodwill…but even the cheapest drinks (v8 fruit fusion) look impressive in these glasses-with-built-in-silver-cork-coaster-holder-things. Also from a former trip, but love them and they have...
About $130 and some time to drive PART TWO
The LAMPS. There were MANY MANY MANY good lamps I came across. These are my three and unfortunately I am personally lamped out. So, they will go to good homes, probably via craigslist…but I’m not sure yet.
About $130 and some time to drive PART ONE
SO, I finally photographed all my trip purchases. They are mostly small things since I couldn’t really haul all that much home. And a handful of the items were purchased before this trip (another beach trip and portland thrifting). But I thought I would share it all! Some will be gifts, some will be craigslisted (the lamps), some things I was actively looking for and other things I just...
If you want to refinish this...
…it is awesome. $150 right here.
These curtains are on sale for $19.99 a panel (down from $59.00 a panel). And right now urban outfitters has free shipping on orders over $50 : )
Love it! $16 for “10 sprigs” right here.
umm...crazy good deal
This 1950’s coffee table refinished is $50? That’s great!
I love this take on a faux fur throw….it’s long haired! It’s sort of flokati-ish but also just it’s own thing. And it’s right here for $69.95 Throws are like the household equivalent of cardigans. You think they should be on sale in the spring and summer since they are a fall and winter thing…but really they are year round items so don’t go on sale as...
texture, texture, texture, texture. Did I say texture? Mongolian wool pillows have been everywhere the last year but they are a bit pricey. A few colors are on sale at pier one right now and others are at the normal price of $39.95 Here is the light purple (which is still $39.95) and here is the black for $19.98
