It’s been a spell since I’ve had the thrift store itch, but I needed to make a run to Hobby Lobby and I decided I would make a day of it by hitting two of my favorite thrifts close by. It was a successful trip, as most of them are. I don’t think I’ve really walked away empty handed before. Ever. Nonetheless, I had to work for my score, because Cupcake was tired and acting a crazy-hot-strong-willed-mess and I was physically sweating as I tried to reign her in. After ten minutes, I caved. She was tired and who was I kidding. If Cupcake ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.
I did manage to grab some cool bits for a few bucks.
This super cool vintage carrying case is either plastic or acrylic. It has a mirror inside, so it was a cosmetic case or one that stored curlers. I remember my Gran had something like this when I was little, where she stored curlers, but she could have repurposed the case from something else.
These sweet little bunnies were each on a wire pick, probably used in either a floral or Easter wreath arrangement. At $0.19 each, I thought they were perfect for the little fairy house we are building. Score.
I spotted this vintage egg drying rack for $0.99 and it was a no brainer. After 10 years of dying eggs, I still haven’t come up with a better solution than just resting them on a paper towel covered paper plate. Maybe this will be a winner.
Have you ever!? I haven’t, but I found the same one on Crate & Barrel’s site. He loves to roast garlic when he whips up some of his specialties and I just can’t imagine he won’t love this. It was my most expensive buy at $8.99, but he’s worth it. =)
Last, I spotted this gem high up on a shelf. I’m a sucker for iron, so I needed to know what it was. It was a $2.99 score of awesome and I can’t wait to transform it. I have some ideas, but you’ll have to wait for the reveal.
Not bad for under twenty bucks.
Have you found anything you just couldn’t walk away from at a thrift store? Until next time.XO, Tommie
