I have such a weakness for vintage and antique books! The textural covers, the typography, the vintage images – I am swooning over these books that Kelly (Instagram: olie.and.co) found for quarters at a garage sale!
You guys, what is it with you and these incredible prices?! I need to shop where you are shopping!
I love the way Ansley from Vivaciously Vintage (Instagram: vivaciouslyvintage) made over this sweet midcentury dresser. Such a great idea to move the three patterned drawers to the middle! I love seeing #thriftscorethursday makeovers, so keep them coming my friends!
If you aren’t dying over this enormous brass deer Jess from Domicile 37 (Instagram: domicile37) shared (she say it weighs 50-60 pounds!), then I’m not sure exactly what’s wrong with you… You might not have a pulse. You should look into that. But seriously – how fabulous is this guy?!
I have a confession to make: way back when, I came across a pair of these brass deer in a thrift store for $100 for the pair. That was way too rich for my blood, but when the price was slashed in half a few months later, I was extremely tempted. I tried to talk myself into pulling the trigger, but then one day they had sold. As dramatic as it sounds, I regret not buying them to this day!
Speaking of “the ones that got away” at the thrift store, here is my find for the week… (I promise – lucite coffee table post coming soon – I just haven’t had a chance to get really good photographs yet)
These awesome jade-colored Chinese Chippendale-esque lamps were $11 each and I was seriously tempted. But I knew I didn’t have a purpose for them in my home, since I already have my yellow #thriftscorethursday lamps, so like a good girl I (sadly) left them behind.
Guess what happened yesterday? Our kitty Tiny Tina accidently sent one of my yellow lamps crashing to the ground, leaving a huge crack running up the side! I don’t think I can repair it and the crack is so obvious, I can’t hide it. So I’m kicking myself for leaving those awesome jade lamps behind!
The moral of this story? Lamp hoarding: good.
Okay you guys, let’s hear it! What’s your “one that got away” #thriftscorethursday story?
