After laying around for four days with the flu I felt good enough to venture outside.
I only had a couple of vacation days left and I was itching to do some junking! I hopped in my car and drove into town to hit a not-so-local Goodwill and the Habitat for Humanity store next to it.
It was my first visit to a H4H store and I couldn't wait to see what was there.
It was salvage heaven!
It was salvage heaven!
Amidst the old furniture, fixtures, appliances, parts and pieces, I found some gems.
A great wire basket large enough for magazines:
A set of 3 ruby red French Arcoroc goblets:
A salvaged vintage 50's pink bathroom soap dish:
An old pie stand:
A charming yellow basket:
A retro condiment set with teak handle:
At the Goodwill next door, I found these cobalt blue bowls:
and matching ice tea glasses:
Some holiday themed dessert plates:
A milkglass egg:
And a vintage globe on stand:
I was thrilled with my finds and will make the occasional drive to these exciting new thrifting stops. After about 2 hours I grew tired and went home for a flu nap.
I was happy to get out of the house for a short while.
And thrilled with my finds!
Anyone been thrifting lately?
