Thrifty Finds {Try Not to Hate Me}

Gotta love a successful afternoon of thrifting at your local antique mall!  On Tuesday, I was blessed to spend the afternoon with the lovely Charity from The Heartfelt Home.  We enjoyed a delish lunch in downtown Roswell and strolled over to the Canton Street Antique Mall to poke around and see what we could find.

I totally scored!

See those wooden spoon display racks?  Those will be incorporated into the wall art phase of my Ugly Duckling Dining Room makeover.  That sweet little Japanese butterfly print framed in bamboo?  Couldn’t resist.  And I’m a sucker for antique wooden boxes… especially ones that look like this on the inside!

Could you just DIE?  Peacock blue VELVET??  (3 snaps!)

I also popped into Tuesday Morning, as part of my ongoing quest for lighting for the dining room and lo and behold I came across these fresh shades for the buffet lamps on my grandmother’s buffet.

Great updated shape and a whopper of a good deal, too!

    Hi Heidi,
    Those stuff are so pretty. It will look more prettier if you will do a make over on them.
    So lovely pieces!

  2. Heidi,

    You are so lucky! I can’t believe you found those lampshades.

    You’ve inspired me! I think I need to go thrifting today!


  3. Super lucky finds! Trying not to hate you. 😉 Have a great weekend, Heidi!

  4. Garage saling yesterday my friend got the best score and it wasn’t DIY related. She snagged a tag on Vera Wang $100 purse for a buck. A buck!!!! She was so tickled.


  5. Could not hate you if I tried!!….Seriously great finds….and those shades for $6.99…must have been tagged incorrectly…those are a steal!!!…Beautiful!

  6. Nice!!! Excited to see how you put these to good use! 🙂

  7. That box does deserve 3 snaps!! Great day with a fellow thrifter!

  8. Oh snap (or three)! That box is amazing!

  9. I love that box. What a fun touch for a bookshelf, or a console on a stack of books. Love.

  10. Love that box. Not sure I have been to that mall.
