My "hauls" are not always from one trip to the TS. I often go twice a week (sometimes even 3 times a week!) & I keep them in a box then take pictures of everything for that week...I'm usually weeks behind in getting them posted though. And they are almost always from 2 stores since there is another thrift store near the GW I frequent.
I love, love, love this tiny drop leaf table & it was only $20. (I know, I know...I'm a price dropper. But I love to brag about my bargains!) It's really small, not much higher than my knees ..... did I say I LOVE it! It'll get a coat of white paint.
This clock will get a make-over w/ white paint, a bit of distressing & some bling. The mink hat was such a disappointment. I thought the tag said $1.99 & when I got it home I realized that it said $19.99. I like the hat but not enough to pay $20 for it! So I returned it for a store credit. As you'll see, I bought a lot of stuff that day & when the total was more than I expected, I just figured I spent more than I thought.
Would you believe that this silverplated tea set w/ sugar & creamer was only $15.99?
Here's the rest of my loot. The chandelier will become a teacup chandelier...$5! The fleur de lis has a purple stain on it but that will be rectified w/ white paint. And I bought the anniversary clock ($5) for the dome. I'll hang onto the clock hands too but will probably chuck the rest of the clock. The fabric is a Ralph Lauren pillow case..I already have 2 just like it.
Love these sweet little guys!
This little lamb will be adorable in my Easter decor.
I used this vintage bride & groom on our anniversary table this weekend. You'll see more pics of it on Tablescape Thursday. Another $2.99 well spent!
Look how lovely the teaset (or is it a coffee? I've seen this shape called both) looks on the table in front of my mantel. I wouldn't exactly call it trash though since I didn't even have to polish it.
Look at their eyes...they look like glass & are so real looking that I swear I can almost see a soul behind them. ;o)
