Treasure Hunting

The Monday after Easter, I hit three thrift stores!  I was very happy that my bladder decided to cooperate and I took advantage of that wondrous event.   I found goodies at each place, too.  Some of the things I’m keeping for myself and some will be going into my booth.  First up was Salvation Army.  I think I found the most things here.

This little corner shelf will be getting painted and will be used for display in the booth.  I also love the little pitcher and saucer set.  Love the gold around the rims.

All the wood pieces {box, “teddy” round, and tray} will be getting makeovers.  I found a couple of frames. The ornate one will be getting painted.

These hunt pictures were a nice find.  The one to the right is not faded, it is just the way the sun was hitting it. I wish I actually had somewhere to use these, but they will be going to the booth.

Not far down the road is Goodwill.  I did pretty good here, too.

Love the French image on the top.

I envisioned this lantern made over for my outdoor table.  I’ve already stripped the greenery and the fake rope handle.

This cute little white teacup and saucer is actually attached.  This will make a nice addition to my whites cabinet in the kitchen.

The third store was along the same road and benefits hospice.  They have some great things and prices vary.

The best thing was this table I saw as soon as I walked in.  For $14.99 it was coming with me!

I loved this French musician with his lute. He’s going to the booth though.

This unassuming teacup had a lovely surprise inside.

This shelf sconce is headed to the booth, too.

The cook bunny and silver tray {shown on the table above} I am keeping.  Not bad for an hour or so of thrifting!

Great finds, Kathy. I love your hunt scene prints. They are totally my style too. Can't you paint the frames and fit them in with your d├ęcor? They are wonderful.

Yes, girl you scored big time. That table would have spoken to me too for that price. It is soooo pretty Kathy!

Oh my gosh! I have that little jewelry box! I've had it ever since I was a little girl. Mine doesn't look as nice as yours since it's so old. That's too funny!
