Hello friends!

Did you go thrift shopping with me yesterday on Instagram?? I am running a little behind right now since we had the hurricane come through, then we lost power for over 13 hours so I didn’t get to go shopping like I planned on Tuesday. (power was out all over)
I wasn’t sure I’d be able to fit in shopping and writing the post all on Wednesday but I am determined to get it done so I can get busy on these makeovers.

Anyway, if you watched my stories yesterday on Instagram, you know I missed going by the ReStore. They close too darn early these days!
I may go tomorrow (Thursday) so it’s quite possible my haul #4 might end up a bit bigger. We’ll see. ;)

But for right now, this is what I found and I’m rolling with it. lol

Let me first remind you that I did not bring all of these things home. But I think it’s fun to share some of the good deals or fun finds with you anyway, even if I don’t decide to bring them home. You know, to sort of show you the kinds of things you can find out there. 

Are you ready to see it all?? (you can probably still watch my stories over on Instagram for a bit today too if you missed it yesterday)

First stop…

The very first stop I found this end table. This thing is solid wood and HEAVY.
I couldn’t pass it up for $10.

The same store had this and if I remember correctly it was $100. Isn’t it pretty??

And check out these 4 barstools at $8 each. Wow!! What a deal.
All they need is a little love in the form of paint and new fabric.

Second stop…

And look what I found at my second stop. Four more bar stools!!
And these were an even better deal… 4 for $25.
All they need is some spray paint and new stain on the seats.
I did not buy these but I think I may go back for them tomorrow…hopefully they will still be there!
We’ll see.

Metal scrolly tray?? Yep, it also came home with me.

I really wanted to bring this chest home with me but I didn’t. It was $40. (and I couldn’t get it open)

Fourth stop…

Tin bucket?? Yes, I have plans for you! $6 and it came home with me, of course.

These were just two flat boards…$3 for the set. Perfect for signs so they came home with me.

And as I got back to where this store usually has the furniture, I again found it mostly empty.
It was empty the last time I came here. Not sure what’s up with that?

But I did find this…

Loved the shape of this basket that was brand new with tag. For $3, it came home with me.

Or how about this cutie for fall?? It’s perfect and I don’t need to do a thing to it except add some fun fall goodies inside.
Be on the lookout for this one in September or October because it came home with me. $4

And a few more fall things…

So there it is!

Not a huge haul but a pretty nice one. I do hope to find a couple more things from the ReStore.
Keep an eye out tomorrow over on Instagram for that.

I’ll see you back here next week with my Trash to Treasure friends and one of these as my newest makeover! Don’t know which yet…you’ll just have to check back in to see. :)

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!

  1. What a great haul. If only I where as lucky as you in finding some good stuff
    Looking forward in seeing your make-overs.
    Have a wonderful week.

    1. Can you say where you find such great bargains? The thrift shops where I live sell items for waaay too much. With vases, baskets, and other smaller items, I can often find new ones I like just as well or better at very similar prices! It’s frustrating!

      1. Hi Betty! We have a ton of thrift stores in the area I live in so there are many to choose from. Maybe even a little competition between them because of that. But…the prices can be crazy even around here on some things at times. It’s hit or miss for sure! :)

        1. Thank you for your reply! I live in a small-ish town and our thrift stores leave a lot to be desired. After I sent the message to you, I realized that I could investigate thrift stores in Ft. Walton Beach (about 25 miles from me) or even Pensacola (about 50 miles away). I haven’t tried any of them, yet, but your website makes me want to make a trip really soon! Thank you for sharing your talents.

  2. How fun! I love seeing what you took with you, left behind and may go back for. :) It spawns excitement to see the makeovers ahead!
    Be well!!

    1. Ha! I always leave something behind that nags at me later to go back for. And I did go back and get something and found more things while I was at it. I’ll be sharing them all tomorrow. :) xo

  3. I’m so excited to see what you do with the end table! I have TWO I purchased many years ago and they need some redo Loving updates!

  4. I can’t wait to see what you do with that oak end table. I have a set of three from the 80’s that are still in my family room. Looking forward to your inspiration:)

  5. I was so hoping you would bring the cedar chest home…I have one to redo and was looking forward to your inspiration…

    1. I know, I am so sorry! It’s hard to bring them all home, especially those larger ones. If only I had a few handy fellas to follow me around with a big ole trailer…and a bigger space to work. Nothing would be safe from me as I’d bring it all home! ;)

  6. I too was hoping for the cedar chest. I have a waterfall buffet and would like to redo it, but need inspiration. Too bad you couldn’t get it open, maybe there are some treasures inside……

    1. I have a waterfall chest/dresser in my storage unit that I need to pull out and redo. Stay tuned for that one. I’m working on selling and moving things out of our storage unit now, so soon! :)

  7. Can’t wait until you you redo the oak end table. I have one similar to it that I too bought at my local thrift store for $10! LOL, I could’nt pass up either! solid and made by Broyhill.

    1. Oh, that’s too funny! Yes, that one will be fun to redo! I’m not sure who made mine but it’s heavy! :) xo

    1. I just love everything you do. Where do you get all these ideas?! I can copy most anything but to come up with something original, well that’s another story.

      1. Aw, thanks so much Barbara! I don’t always have them come right to me. Some I know right away, others take some time. :) xo

  8. Great finds, I have found it is either feast (too much stuff crammed in, in no order) or famine ( empty shelves and floor spaces) at my area thrift shops in central/upstate NY. A manager of one SA store said they have fewer drivers, reduced deliveries right now, due to COVID 19. Also, during the major shut down times, people were home cleaning, and dumped stuff off at clearly closed donation centers- so it got ruined in rain, etc, and the thrift stores had to pay to have it hauled off as garbage. A lose/lose situation. What a shame for everyone- if you thought your donation was going to help someone else, it didn’t and actually cost the thrift/charities money to clean up what you dumped. Please, if the sign is up saying Donation Center Closed, or you see orange fencing surrounding the donation center and the lights are off…seriously, you didn’t get it? Just a tip, if I have items I no longer need or want, but are definitely a treasure someone else might love, I put it out in front of my house in nice weather with a “FREE” sign. Also I have held yard sales with items going for 5, 10, 25 cents- or free.

    1. Thanks, Sue! That’s a shame that people set things out like that but I see the same thing around here. They just want to get rid of it without thought of what will happen to it out in the weather, etc. So many other ways to “get rid” of their stuff without letting it get ruined like you mentioned.

  9. I really love that desk with the basketball on it. As soon as I seen that I had visions of things I could do with that. You have found a lot of really nice stuff. Would love to see what ideas you come up with.

    1. Oh yes, wasn’t that so pretty? And it was still there when I went back the next day when they were having a %50 off all furniture sale. I really wanted to bring it home but couldn’t fit it in. (the furniture had to go when you bought it to qualify for the sale). xo
