Greetings! I'm so excited to be able to contribute to this blog! I've started thrifting a lot more lately so thought I'd share my finds with you all. I love finding other people's old and beautiful treasures and making them my own. It's not only a lot of fun but easy on the pocket and the environment too! Yay recycling! Anyway, here's a few of my recent thrift finds. (And don't hesitate to tell me if you know anything about what I find - because I probably don't!)
I found this ring holder for 98 cents and the tray behind for $3 to keep my jewelery and toiletries on in the bathroom. The tray is actually mirrored, sorry I couldn't provide a better photo of it. Anyway, I love looking at these two - they're super pretty and make me feel totally glam.
Sorry for the blurry photo on this one, but I got these earrings for 98 cents! They need a bit of clean up before I wear them but I like them nonetheless =)
This glass is so pretty! There was only one but I couldn't not take it home with me (75 cents). I didn't find any markings on the bottom so I'm unsure of maker/history.
This is one of my favorite finds, a globemaster globe. I've wanted a vintage globe for a while and when I found this one I was pretty happy ($2.25). I've been trying to date it and so far I know it's pre 1971 because it still has East Pakistan on it which became Bangladesh in 1971 (yes I'm a nerd). But I can't figure out any other dating clues. =/
I found a bag of these sewing notions for $1. Lots of old binding, ric rac, and eye hooks. Lovely.
I found these two beautiful mugs for $1 total at the local SA. They're so pretty I could look at them all day. They have no markings on the bottom.
Have a great weekend!!
