Happy Thriftday to you! Since thrift store shopping is one of my favorite pasttimes, I decided to jump on the bandwagon and highlight every Thursday, (or THRIFTday, if you will) some of my best thrift store finds from the past week. Each post will consist of only one or two finds and will include ways I've incorporated the pieces in my home. It will also showcase my best thrift store bargains and I will let you know which items were purchased strictly for resale too.
We all enjoy viewing other people's treasures and sharing our own, don't we? I know I do and am looking forward to all the THRIFTdays that lie ahead! Ready to take a look?
I spotted this vintage pottery lamp with its sad little lampshade this past Tuesday.
I took a closer peek at its glossy khaki paint color and beautifully crafted floral pattern and immediately fell in love.
I could see it was true vintage by checking the underside and wiring, while making sure there were no viewable chips or bad wires. Consider it sold! Best of all, the entire contents of the shop was 50% off that day!
I brought it home, replacing the lampshade with a more modern one purchased at a local department store. It now sits in our family room providing light to a previously dark corner. Love. Love. Love.
Do you have a thrift store find you'd like to share? Include your link in your comment so we can all oooo and ahhhh over it! (I'm currently working on adding a linky-loo to make it easier, but I appreciate your patience until it's completion.)
As always, take care and keep on junking!
