I am finally getting around to writing Part II of my thrift-store haul from our vacation in Pennsylvania. If you missed Part I, click here to check it out.
The prices at the thrift store I visited were so darn good that I ended up picking up a lot of items. What I love the most about going to the thrift store and browsing is the fact that every single piece there is going to be unique and will have some sort of a story. Every piece there was once a gem to someone and that's just so cool to me. There's just something that feels so good about old, used items that inspires me to be creative.
One of the items I really fell in love with during my thrift-diving is this pair of really sweet candle holders. I just think the detailed base is so pretty and delicate. I will admit that I had a hard time envisioning what I wanted to do with these in the beginning, but I picked them up anyway because I actually really loved them. I still have no idea what I am going to do with the red glass bulby parts. I might just have to put them aside for now until I get some ideas. Overall, these little candle holders give off a lot of antique vibes, which I'm always very excited about. When I purchased these, I thought the price at $3.99 each was pretty unbeatable, but thinking about it now, that's actually pretty pricey for a thrift store! I have another post coming up soon about how I gave these a little makeover for a more antique look. I am so amazed at how they turned out!
What I really love about this rooster is that I didn't have to do anything to it to make it pretty because it's already so darling. I love the rooster and the obvious farm feel it has. It's just a quick way to make any space feel like a little farmhouse.
This chicken tin bucket was a hot item at the thrift store. There were a few ladies eyeing it, and one of them even held it in her hand for a few minutes, but she ended up putting it back on the shelf. As soon as she did, this baby was in my cart. I love it! So much farmhouse feels in my kitchen now. I love that I can put some flowers in it or just set it on a shelf or in a corner and it will still look really great.
The last item from my haul is this beautiful vintage Bavaria china set. It is a beautiful porcelain white with a delicate floral pattern, and lined with gold. The pattern can be seen on all the cups, saucers, and the creamer. Unfortunately, it is missing the sugar pot, which is a bit of a bummer. Can you believe the whole set was only $1.99? I was so elated when I saw the price! Now all I need is a hutch to display my collection.
That's it for my Pennsylvania thrift haul. I am so happy that I was able to find some really cool items. What did you guys think? Which was your favorite piece? I'd love to hear from you! Thanks for stopping by! Hope you all have a really, really great rest of the week!
