I LOVE thrift store finds...in fact, nearly 80% of my household decor is either a thrift store or yard sale find. An eclectic style has always appealed to me and I love finding fabulous pieces from a variety of sources. To me, each piece in my home tells a story of where it came from and who appreciated it before me? Whether it came from a second hand store, an estate sale or even from my mothers house. It all comes together for a homey look and feel.
Here are some great finds:
A piano bench my mother bought for me as a home-warming gift for my first apartment! She bought it for $10 at our local CCA. It is covered with the cutest 1960's butterfly print wall paper and has stayed with me through the years.
Antique gate keys my mom and I found on a trip to Canton. I thought they looked nice siding a drawing I did in college.
I found this clay vase at a thrift store in Arlington. It appears hand made and fired and has the neatest impressions of leaves on it...and I bought it for $2.
Keep an eye out the next time you see a garage sale or pass a thrift store! You never know what you'll find! Happy Shopping!
