Bitten by the Thrifting Bug

I've dabbled in thrift stores in the past - very sporadic and usually half-hearted visits. However, the past three Saturday mornings I've loaded up my three kiddos and headed for our local thrift store.  It's official - I've been bitten by the thrifting bug.  I'm not sure how long the fever will last (probably when the cold weather returns!), but for now my heart goes pitter-pat at the thought of next Saturday morning and the lovely something I just might happen upon.

Here are some of my latest finds.
{Globe on Stand - $8}

{Footed Iron Stone Bowl $3}

{Framed Print $3}
hanging this quick-quick

{Old Suitcase $7}
can't wait to use this for photo shoots

{Lovely Green Frame $3}
so many lovely possibilities: book pages...chalkboard...chicken wire

{Old Lidded Jar - $2}
like the extra-largeness of this one

What about you - have you been bitten?

  1. Great finds! I've been wanting a globe like that ...what a steal!

  2. That globe is so incredible! Your other finds are great, too!

  3. That globe! I loooove it- such a great find. I love thrifting- give me a good yard sale or thrift store and I'm a happy girl.

    Hope you have an awesome week!

  5. Oh man... I haven't been thrifting in a while, but every time i go i get the bug! You found some great things. Maybe I'll go thrifting this weekend :) -Emily

  6. i am definitely always keeping my eyes peeled for cool old frames like that at cheap prices... what great finds for good deals!

  7. Your finds are awesome. I need to find better thrift stores, the ones around here very rarely have any treasures. I think other people in town pick them over too.

  8. Great finds and great deals!
