Happy Friday everyone! I’ve got a few more great, thrifty vintage finds for you today! These are some of my favorites, as they are great decorating staples to have around the home. There are so many different ways to incorporate them into your home decor.
I snagged this beautiful, vintage printers tray for only $5 one Saturday morning while garage sale hopping. These usually go for somewhere between $40-50, so I was thrilled about my deal! These trays can be purely decorative or functional. There are about a million and one ideas floating around the interwebs for these.
I love incorporating pieces like this that have great texture and a story to tell. They can really warm up a space and add character.
Globes and maps are another great way to bring texture and character into your space. They come in so many colors and styles, they can look awesome in any room.
I found this globe at a small flea market in Austin. I bought this plus a vintage scarf and a couple of milkglass bud vases all for $15.
Flea markets are fantastic places to find deals on vintage and statement pieces for you home. You can usually bargain with the sellers, and if you go at the end to the day you might score and even better deal! Many times, sellers don’t want to lug all of their stuff back home, so they’ll be more willing to part with some items for less money. At this same flea market, my sister got a hot pink vintage pyrex dish for practically nothing, because the seller hated hauling them back and forth.
Vintage books are one of the best, cheapest items to pick up at thrift stores or garage sales. They also bring in some great color and texture, and come in handy for adding height, etc.
I bought this book [Lord Hornblower] for $1.39 at Goodwill. I decided to do a publication date/Google check to see what kind of deal I scored. I found out that this book is actually a first edition, and is being sold online for $40.
Y’all have a great weekend and happy thrifting!
