Fun Thrift Store Finds...

It's been awhile since I've shared some fun thrift store finds!  
I found a few seasonal things, 
as well as some vintage, and even a few new items!

Thrift stores are a great place to find new decor items, too!
Isn't this a wonderful rustic wood tray?  A new piece...I filled it with a combination of faux and real pieces.  I love the large size and think it will be great to use for many occasions! 

A small cutting board and this tin pitcher came home with me, too.

I was attracted to the great lettering font...

Small crocks are always useful...
and this one has a nice patina on the metal handle.

Two little vintage, a candleholder, and the other, a shaker...were fun finds for Thanksgiving decorating!

I have had this vintage folding rack for a few years.  
It is tall and a nice large size, and I have been on the hunt 
for an appropriate tray to use with it ever since.

This week I found this huge tray!  It is from Broyhill, new, still with tags.  It has a great grasscloth covering and works perfectly with the stand. And I bought it with a 50% off coupon! 
I can use this in so many ways!

Lastly, I found this new metal tote.  It has a great 
grey-blue color, and there are lots of ways to use it!  

I made a simple arrangement for fall...

I'm using it in our entryway...

I love the look for late fall!  
Have you had some fun finds this week?  
I'd love to hear about them...

Until next time...

  6. You found some wonderful things, Linda! Love the ceramic turkeys and little crock. Your trays are such good finds, too. Love your entry-way :) I've been staying out of the thrift stores for a while because a 'Funky Junk' show is coming to the fairgrounds soon. I've been saving up! Hope your weekend is sweet. Sending hugs xo Karen

  7. Linda, I loved the blue tote best of all. It is adorable the way you have decorated with it. I have one of those folding rack...I called my a luggage rack. I like the tray you found for yours. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

  11. I found nothing this week except Mucinex and nasal spray. lol No thrifting for me lately! You sure found a lot of good buys/things though. Isn't it funny how sometimes you can go and find nothing and other times you feel like you have hit the mother lode? Hope you have a wonderful, wonderful weekend- xo Diana
