Latest Thrift Finds

Travis and I had a thrifting shopping day about a month and a half ago and I realized that I never shared our finds with you yet.
At this point, I really don't remember all the prices that we paid for everything, but I will do my best.

Of course we stopped at our favorite place, Tickled Pink and then also stopped at another great store, The Dixie Trading Post.

Here's are finds:

First up: Travis found this steamer trunk for $15 at Tickled Pink. He debated about it for a few minutes but in the end, it came home with us.

Here's a shot of the inside and the paper that lines the trunk.

I found this frame and loved it. Not sure yet if it will go on my frame collage wall (when I finally do that) but it will find a home somewhere!

Up-close shot of the frame.

Travis found this brand new Stetson hat for $35 (which is an awesome find since these hates are like $200) and just had to have it. He actually bought it for his mom because his family has horses and mules so she ended up buying it off of us.

I found these fun little plates and cups and debated over them. I showed Travis and he thought they were cool. I decided that I wouldn't get them but Travis decided that we should, so home with us they came. There are 4 of them total and I think they were only $5.

The last purchase from Tickled Pink was this little plate. It was only a few dollars and not sure why I had to have it. I just loved the colors and have been wanting to do a plate wall in my dining room so I guess this was a jumping off point.

We then headed to Dixie Trading Post and I found this cheese dome for $5. I had other plans for it and just yesterday it had it's make over. I'll be sure to share what it looks like now soon. It didn't change too much but it looks great!

Then we came across all these silver plates and both loved them. I thought they would look great on my plate wall and we both really like them as is. They all ranged in price but we decided to jump right in and get them all, even if some were a little more than I probably would have spent.

Loved the details in this one. So pretty!

Super small plate, which actually I think is a coaster.

Another small plate/coaster.

Loved the shape and designs in this one as well.

Large round plate with simple but elegant details.

And last purchase was this plate with great cut outs as well.


We came home with quite a bit that day.
Hopefully after our move, I will be able to show you all them in use.

Have you found anything fun lately?


Linking up to some of these parties.

  2. Oooh, I like those silver plates. Are you going to polish them or leave the patina? Great either way!

    I'm trying to declutter my house before I pick up anything new (feels like a never-ending task!), so haven't been to any thrift stores, but I don't think I'll be able to resist the garage sales that will be starting when the weather finally warms up.
