{major thrift haul madness}

Last week marked, possibly, my greatest thrifting victory of all time! My friend Georgia and I went to "the bins" at one of the areas largest thrift stores and scored big time! Wvery meticulously packed our cart and betwen the two of us, everything was $20! Not to mention, she paid for everything! This magnificent load of treasure cost me $0! Can't beat that!

Among my favorite items were...a huge roll of kraft paper, some cute wrapping paper, a beautiful green ceramic planter, really cool vintage looking tins, and wait for it....a HUGE roll of woodgrain contact paper! I literally gasped when I found it!

There were so many cute odds and ends! I got this realy neat yellow glass planter thing, which I love. Some cute old measuring spoons, a whole loads of picture frames which I have plans for, and another "hobnail-ish" candle stick I have 3.

I literally must have found almost everything that has been on my thrift list, in one trip. I got a few cute plates,  an amazing white platter, and a white colander to plant something in. 

But I think one of my favorite finds of the day was this vintage rose "paint-by-number-ish" picture and frame! Check back tomorrow to see what I did with it! It's pretty cool if you ask me!


  1. Wowie! Major finds!!! Can't wait to see what you do with it all :)

  2. SCORE! We have a similar thrift store in town, where everything is priced by the pound- always some great treasures to be unearthed!
    Do you have plans for the woodgrain contact paper?

  3. Which thrift store did you go to? Can't wait to see what you've done with the rose picture. Good finds!

  4. Awesome finds!! I have to get over there. I love the bins!!! So much fun!
