Recent Thrifted Items

These are a few of my thrifted items from the last month. I love Colorado thrifting. I can almost always find a treasure; sometimes a cart full of them. I am putting together a "Thrift Tips Part 2". I have my own tips in mind, but are there any specific questions you would like me to answer? I would be happy to answer them. What have you thrifted recently?

  2. I really wish I had some really good thrift stores with older items like these. The chair is beautiful, love the timer, and the Nat King Cole record is a one hell of a find! You should totally get an album frame for that gem! =)

  5. You thrifted that chair? Gasp. It's perfect! I also love me wire baskets. Have 'em everywhere, holding everything, and I cannot seem to pass one up. If they're ugly, I just bring them home and spray paint them. Easy fix!

  7. how do you resist the urge to buy something you don't need because it's cool/rare/maybe you know it's worth something? i struggle with this sometimes when thrifting. i would love to hear if you have any advice about this!

  9. i. want. it. all.

    especially the red chair & the timex clock. they're perfect.

    we've been accruing metal wire baskets for some time now and they're just great. ours are a little different shape, but right now we use 'em to house records & magazines. i'm never, ever giving them up.

  20. do you have themes in mind when you thrift? whenever I go I just get neat looking clothes here and there, but my wardrobe as a whole doesn't match (nothing goes well with each other). Same with room decor!

  22. i love that chair. super cute.

    my question is- how do you find that thrift stores that you shop at?

    Also do you ever buy anything that you later fix/DIY? Or do you only buy things is good condition?
