Sometimes when I’m thrift store shopping I hit it big and sometimes it’s a bust.

I shopped a total of 4 thrift stores on Monday of this week and I found a few things.

I have to say that most of the time the thrift stores are a bust for me.



plastic nautical décor

I’m thinking of redecorating one of our bedrooms in a nautical theme so at 25¢ each I couldn’t pass these up.

It’s hard to tell in the photo but they are about 18” in diameter.



Wow….I found some hardware…..$2.98…..for the lot!



And this metal tray for $1.00.



I think I can use these 75¢ chalkboards in a project.



Gingerbread stoneware, brand new in the box for $1.00.

Plain metal shower curtain rings that could come in handy for something.

Do you do any thrift store shopping? Any luck?

    I think you found some pretty cool stuff – I love to thrift shop but it is definitely a hit or miss process. Have a great weekend Kathy…

    Oh no! Haaa. Not me! Shopping is not permitted any longer. Over and done! At this time we are getting rid of everything in excess. Trying to downsize from so much. So Good (& new!) things at that. Giving many to my niece. She can always pass things the items along to her huge (hubby’s) family. I hope someone can use.

    There were many years that I thrift shopped and loved it. We have a huge Amvet’s resale shop in our area. Wonderful stuff. Gotta stop sometime though. We have enough to last 3 lifetimes!!

    All good things on your shopping sprees Kathy! Glad you are enjoying it all!!

    Looks like you made some great finds. I too have been hitting the thrift stores, and garage sales when possible. Sometimes I find something good and sometimes not. I found a little home decor consignment shop, so I’m always on the look out for something that I can bring new too. I really enjoy giving something a new make over. Thanks for sharing your great finds, can’t wait to see what you do with them.
