Thrifty Finds

It’s been a while since I’ve shared with you my thrifty finds. I’ve hit up many garage sales, thrift stores, Goodwills and even a couple antique malls over the past few weeks. If I were rich, I’d have come home with so much more. Like the adorable antique stroller/riding toy. I don’t know what I would have done with it, but I hearted it! And the furniture. I could have bought it all! But I’m still pretty excited about what I got. 
I just discovered a little antique mall {very close to my house} inside a local flea market. A lot of stuff was pretty pricey, but I did walk away with a few vintage cookbooks, a nest and 
this silver serving set. It needs a little polishing, but how cute for $5!
Now onto my new favorite place in the whole world. My sister-in-law and I visited {for the first time} the Sleepy Poet Antique Mall. 55,000 sq. feet of antiques, collectibles, furnishings, etc. I was totally unprepared and totally overwhelmed! We are going back next weekend! I told you it was my new favorite place! Like I said, I was overwhelmed so I didn’t get much.

A little antique clock and some vintage velvet gloves.
Yay! An old kitchen scale which I’ve been on the hunt for. I know to some of you this looks old and rusty, but it is beautiful in my kitchen!
And, this lovely old tackle box. Complete with fishing gear inside too! I just loved the color {and the rust, of course}. I think I might use it for a new sewing box.
A caned chair in pretty much perfect condition from Goodwill for $7.99! But you know it won’t stay like this. Stay tuned . . . 
And finally, from the Restore
a silver serving platter 
and an oxidated, rusted basket. 
Boy do I love other people’s junk! 
Tomorrow is Friday! Whoop whoop!
