Thrift Store Finds




We had a few extra minutes in between running to the post office and doing laundry this week, so we decided to pop into our favorite thrift store.  I'm so glad we did.  

Galvanized buckets.  Because we live on a homestead and can never have enough of them.  I especially love them for functional decorating.

A rug for the front door, but it had to match the rug in the main living area, because, well that's what we've got... one room. 

A sweater to replace my beloved orange wrap that I've been wearing for at least three years.  It's beyond repair, and for me, that's saying a lot.  My boys may also have mentioned that paired with my green knit hat, I look somewhat like a life sized carrot.  So it was either a new hat or a new sweater. Well, I found the sweater.  You know the one.  It fits absolutely perfect. It gets worn everywhere, for everything.  It’s perfect for cool mornings in the garden or folding up the bottom to gather eggs.  Throwing it over a shirt that has stains on the front from your kid wiping his face when he gave you a hug and you need to run to the store for toilet paper, but you’re too tired to change.  Yeah, that one.  It’s cotton and will be perfect for adding a layer during the chilly weather that’s yet to come.  Now, I need to knit another hat to match.  Darn.

What's your best thrift store find?

  1. I just found myself a sweater too, nice zippered Grandpa sweater. And I'm working on my second hat of the same pattern, I love how it works up!

  2. As I am a plus-size woman, I am thrilled when I find clothes at a thrift store that fit and flatter me! I love looking at books and snatch up craft and self-help books quite often. An elderly friend from my church enjoys the Love Inspired Christian romances and I am happy when I find her some of those paperbacks while thrifting.

    1. I'm fairly large chested, so finding clothes to fit are hard for me, too. ;) Books are my favorite finds, too!

  4. Besides book and yarn stores shopping at the thrift store is the only shopping I enjoy.. My best find ever was a brand new pair of black Italian leather knee high boots in my daughter's size, she loves them.
    For me it was a cast iron skillet large enough to cook a full meal for my family of seven when they all lived at home.

    1. I agree, any other kind of shopping is just a chore. Excellent finds! We found a new pair of Berkies for Mike last summer.

    1. How wonderful, Linda! I love finding hand knits. Isn't it funny how easily the stand out from the machine knits?

  6. I found so many things over the year, it's hard to pick a single item... woven basket (much like your galvanized bins!), a 100% wool coat for canadian winter for 4$, any kind of shoes for the kids (they grow so fast!)and glass container to store bulk food.

  7. I really won't shop anywhere other than thrift stores...it's where I feel comfortable. Get me in a Belk and I panic about style, fit, trend, etc!! But I can be me in the goodwill.
    I have a sweater that I found a few years ago and it has been dubbed by my children as my "house coat". I do wear it all the time...if I'm at home it's likely I have it on.
    And most recently I scored a moses basket in pristine condition for our new babe. It was a mere $5.
    Of course I'm always finding good shoe deals and right now maternity clothes!
    Love, love, love thrifting!!
