Latest Thrifts!

Last weekend at Canton was totally epic. If it hadn't been for the heat and my lack of funds I could have come home with a truckload full of awesome finds. I did manage to get several goodies though!


This fancy guy is from Danika's new shop.


Another mirror for my entryway.


These vintage scarves will get made into pillows. Only $1 each!


Large vintage chenille bedspread. The picture doesn't show that it has sparkly thread and the stripes are shiny. So pretty!


Plant stand that is now holding a plant I found IN THE TRASH! Seriously who throws out a perfectly good plant. I think its a Hibiscus. It's looking a little sad with all the heat we've had...


I found this huuuge geo map of East Texas for only $20. It looks like a piece of abstract art and I love that's it's a little worn around the edges. I'm helping a friend decorate his office and this is going to look perfect in there!


Another glass towel bar. Now I have three!


Super adorable switch plate for $1.

Have you had any good finds lately?!

I have a peacock like the one you bought. I have no clue what to do with it. Love the glass towel bar I want a small one for my kitchen.

The bird is one of the coolest things I've seen in a while! I'm so jealous!

You found some great stuff. And did I just read Canton? Are you in Texas? I'm located in Dallas and maybe we could meet up the next time you go to Canton??

I used to own a peacock like that! I made out very nicely last Saturday yard sailing, I blogged about so you can check it out under my June 4 post.

Not thrift store finds, but my office had a Showhome Furniture Sale a few weeks ago and I scored BIG time!! Love all my new finds!

I can't wait to go to Canton again! Your finds are AWESOME!

Turning scarves into pillows is a fantastic idea. And the scarves in the picture look super chic!

Oh man, I can't wait to see the finished pillow/scarves. As always such great finds!

you just cannot find deals like this in CA, at least I cannot living a few miles from SF. Maybe if I travel 100 miles I might get lucky! OOHHHHHH g=fabulous stuff!
