I am not shy about my love of thrifting! Here are some of the thrift haul highlights from the last year.
I spend a good bit of my brain thinking about how I can acquire a large collection of fancy things for not a large amount of money. Short of magic, I haven’t been able to find a way to do that OTHER than thrifting. (Though if you made the argument that thrift stores are magic, I wouldn’t really disagree).
Thrifting is my happy place. I don’t buy a $5 cup of coffee three times a week to treat myself. Nope. I go to the thrift store. These are some of the thrift hauls over the last year that I’ve enjoyed!
Of all the things I love, baskets are without a doubt one of the BEST things to find in a thrift store. They’re usually super cheap which makes me not feel so bad when I cut the handles off them to make them smaller.
This is one of my earliest thrift hauls in which I found some GREAT baskets.
Antique fairs are great because there is usually a slightly more curated collection of items. In other words, a little less junk. But the trade-off is higher prices. Thrift stores tend to have a bit more junk, but you can get some really great stuff for SO CHEAP. This thrift haul was a combination of practical, impractical, and downright fancy!
One of my most recent thrift hauls was a delightful mix of practical clothing, ridiculous details, and oh so much fun. Do you see the tiny clock??
Even though antique fairs are a little bit more excited than thrift stores, I still love them so much! This antique haul I shared a few months ago, but it was so much fun. And such great treasures!
Our favorite antique fair happens on the third Sunday of the month April through October. While we always find good deals, the last show is usually the best. At this fair, I got some of the densest and fanciest things I’ve ever gotten in all my years thrifting! (No that’s not a crown on my head. It’s actually a frame. But I thought maybe for a minute it could be a crown. ? )
I’m such a sucker for beautiful, affordable wall decorations. This $12 piece was just one of the MANY treasures from this antique haul. An antique haul isn’t quite the same as a thrift haul, but still! It’s good!
Thrift Haul Treasures – My Top 10
I don’t always share everything I find in a dedicated thrift haul. Part of this is because some days just…aren’t hauls! Sometimes I only get one or two pieces instead of a bunch of things. Those days I’m usually too excited to put the pieces up where I want them to stop and show you. Well, I fixed that!
The video below is list of my top 10 favorite thrifted items I’ve purchased over the last year inn no particular order. Although there are some very fun stories about a few of the pieces.
And there we go! Those are the highlights of my thrifting and antiquing year. I hope you enjoyed this video roundup and the new video this week.
I’ll see you soon!
