Why I love thrifting




This.  For 3 bucks. 

I snatched it up like a crazy woman as soon as I walked in the store.

And the chippy paint?  Love!  You can't fake that with a palm sander.

I hope everyone's having a super day!

  1. That is darling! I still have no clue how to go about thrifting or yard sailing, but maybe that is because our small twon doesn't have many places to go? Or people aren't giving up the stuff I want? :) Are you going to paint this a different color or leave as is? I think I would leave it alone. :)

  3. I'm experiencing a serious case of thrift envy. Hmmm, the only cure is a visit to my local thrift shop. Will do tomorrow.

  4. So so adorable! I'm always convinced I live in some sort of thrifting dead zone. But I love seeing all the great stuff people find out there.

  21. When I saw the first picture I thought it was going to be a post about something you found to make into something better. Then I read you found it this way. I have to agree with others our thrift stores have very few gems like this.
    Congrats.
