Thrift Store haul

The thrift store gods were in a good mood last week and I for one took full advantage! Total score, after a long drought that’s for sure! Wanna see my haul? I’m still giddy over it!

$10 vintage kitchen stool! Love at first sight! this little piece screamed “SAVE ME!” so I did! I already introduced it to a little can of yellow spray paint over the weekend! You’re gonna love her!

$5 College Chair/ desk: Every wondered what a college desk would look like spray painted? Yeah! Me too! We’ll all see how it turns out together!

$15 refinished sewing cabinet! HELLO!!! A beautiful already refinished table! SOLD! Nowt to the task of finding the perfect place for it!

$25 Twin size bed frame! Score of the year! Talk about perfect timing! We are moving Charlies bed down stairs into the big girls new room so she was going to need a bed. This find was a big one! Headboard, foot board, rails and slats! I had a few ladies hating me for finding this before they had! It’s in great condition and only missing some hardware!


Man I love thrift stores! I’m lucky and live in a great area dripping with great thrifting! The D.I. (Deseret Industries) is out big Thrift Store chain here in Utah!. When I lived in California all we had was Salvation Army and Good Will! Colorado had AMAZING thrift Stores!!! How about in your area? Do you have¬† any good thrifting?

    Georgia where I live is so so we have Goodwills some are better than others. I’m about an hour away from the closest one :(
    I was in Colorado all summer and they have FOUR Goodwills in Colorado Springs where I was and several ARC thrift stores. IT was GREAT!

      Colorado was a treat to visit a few summers ago. Mile High thrift store was pretty amazing! If you ever get out there again you’ll have to visit!

    I’m in metro Atlanta and there are some hidden little thrift stores, but the main one is Goodwill. However, their prices are crazy! They wanted $209 for a Singer serger that they wouldn’t let me even plug in to see if it works, no guarantee that it would and no returns. Then a couple of weeks ago I saw a bedside table that’s the same as I already have. So I know it was a flat-pack, unfinished pine, table with drawers from Lowe’s that cost $20. The previous owner didn’t build it square and literally just slapped some paint on it – there were big deep brush strokes and even some stray bristles. Guess how much they wanted? $40! I’m always “jealous” of the great deals people find.

    I’m in Northern CA and Deseret is the best here! Thrift Town is another good find

    Wow, you got quite a haul! I’ve been striking out on thrifting lately.

    When I lived in Vegas, my favorite thrift stores were Catholic Charities, Deseret Industries, Salvation Army and Savers. The Goodwill stores in Vegas and here in Albuquerque are overpriced. Now that I’m in Albuquerque, I only go to Savers and Thrift Town. There’s also a big consignment shop called Flea Market and you can find some amazing stuff for cheap. I got two vintage smoked lucite chairs for 35 bucks. I wanted them, DH told me no, and two days later on a really bad day I found them sitting in my craft room. :)

    I miss Utah and the DI, I am in California now and in the High Desert, we only have some really small Goodwill and Salvation Army stores and I am disappointed every time I go. The Goodwill in Arizona was slightly better, but not by much.

    We have lots of little ones here in Florida, I think our Goodwill and Salv. Army are the most expensive in the country here too! But you found some great finds!!
    Have Fun!
