First thrift shopping venture of 2024! Fun, fun, found lots of cool stuff!
Hello sweet friends!
Guess what I did this weekend? I went thrift store shopping for the first time in a long time…and of course the first of 2024! It had been way too long. I do have several larger pieces in the garage that I am slowly working on but I had nothing small to share with you guys.
So it was definitely time!
Somehow, I managed to buy THREE things that I did not get photos of though! Duh! Who knows with me. lol
You’ll just have to wait and see those I guess. Most of everything I’m sharing is really cool pieces that I came across that I thought you’d love to see.
Have you been thrift shopping this year yet? Find anything good??
First Thrift Shopping Trip of 2024
Look at that detail. How unique is that?
Pretty wood chairs, just need new seats!
Since I was mainly looking for small things, you know flatware box came home with me!
Check this one out. A poker table, I think that might be a first for me!
That’d be fun if you had a game room.
So much detail. They don’t really go with the style of my home but I do love them so.
Curved glass doors on this one. So beautiful.
I have something I’m looking to do in our house (changeup) and I really wanted to take this one home with me to re-do. But it was much too wide for where I wanted to put it so I had to pass.
Isn’t this hall tree so unique and amazing? Would be beautiful refinished and in the right home.
Another very ornate piece! Look at those drawer pulls. Wow.
Considered bringing this one home to do something with but decided against it.
How about a metal table? Not for me. ha!
This one would be so cute in a teen girl’s room. It’s kinda groovy, haha, love it.
I see this one painted and in a coastal-styled home. What do you think?
This one was SO unique! I’ve never seen anything like it. In this photo, it is open with the top folded back and part of it standing up.
And this is how it looks closed. Wild, right??
And open again but with the entire top folded down.
I considered this one too! But I can’t buy any other larger pieces right now. lol
Look at this gorgeous piano. I think the price was 3k+ and you aren’t allowed to open/touch it.
So they put this photo on top to show how it looks open. Isn’t it just so amazing??
And look at the detail on this one. I love all the craftsmanship they used to put into old furniture.
Can you guess what my first thought was when I saw these??
Perfect tops for tile!! Did you guess right??
And not a bad price for two!
I really should have bought this set. But I got distracted looking at some other pieces and then forgot. I might try to go back for them but at that price, I doubt they’ll be there!
Two wood nightstands…
…exactly like a pair I bought a couple of months ago for our bedroom! SAME exact. I couldn’t believe it.
This set was $30 for each, not bad at all, and about the same as I paid for the set I got at a different thrift store.
Do you know how expensive nice, heavy, wood nightstands are? I was not about to pay it! lol So I’ve been looking for several years, thrift stores, FB, for the right width (needed to not be too wide) and height (wanted taller) plus wood, and finally found this set. Stay tuned for them…I’m hoping to share them on Thursday!
Lastly, I saw this one and thought, hmm, that feels like it might be worth something.
So I looked it up! Sure enough, Ebay has one for $1275 and one for $2000 listed. Another auction site said the value of this print (in this frame) is around $700-1,000. I saw others listed for less but they weren’t in this frame. It seems this frame, from my research, is the original and brings a higher price. I paid $50, so we’ll see!!
And that’s it! Except for the other 3 things that I bought. Silly me forgetting to take photos of them!
Did you enjoy seeing all these ornate wood pieces?? It’s amazing the work and craftsmanship back in the day. In houses too. Just so much care and thought put into things. Sad that we have lost that somewhat these days.
Have you ever found something worth anything at the thrift store? I have really too much. Small things, yes, but nothing like the print above.
I do have an old pencil drawing that I found some years back. I briefly looked it up but didn’t find too much and just put it away. I need to pull that out and see if that one may be worth something too!
Have a great week!
