|Tall Bamboo vase $10 (twigs not included)|
So the last contractor has left the building and with the exception of us having to do some repair work on walls and painting the house reno is officially complete. I will be compiling a post this week showing some of the before's and afters but overall we are really happy with the final product.
I have been thrifting a fair amount this month and have found a few goodies I thought I would share with you. I have been looking for something to go by our front door for a while and found this bamboo vase for $10 at my new favorite thrift store. The twigs cost more than that although I could have gone out into the forest and chopped some down, in the end I bought some funky looking twigs instead that won't poke people on their way in the door.
|Baretrap shoes $6|
|Brand new with tags Rockport shoes $10|
The next pair of shoes I found aren't quite as comfortable but will hopefully be so after breaking in. Rockport band new with tags for $10.
|From Belgium 1966 Boch Rambouillet Pattern hand-painted salad bowl $5|
A favorite recent find was this large salad bowl which I knew on sight it was worth far more than the $5 price tag. Current ebay listings show it should go for around $25-30 USD. I bought it with the intention to resell it to the local mid-century modern store in town but when I got it home hubby fell in love with it and it is now staying as our new salad/popcorn bowl. Look, it even matches our new quartz countertops!
Also not shown but purchased were a pair of DKNY jeans in my size for $4.75 almost brand new and two Eddie Bauer spring blouses for $1.50 each.
Have you found anything fun on your thrifting travels recently?
