Thrift Shopping!!!

Thrift Shopping!!!

I know I’ve been a little “absent” from the blogging world lately…..

have you noticed?

I HOPE SO!!!!!


Actually, I miss it terribly and have no plans to fall to the wayside anytime soon but I’ve taken on a new adventure!!!


I’m volunteering at the local military thrift shop and……


The only hard part is finding time to fit it all in……..and not spending too much money!!!

I think I’m their best customer!!!!


That’s okay…’s for a wonderful cause!!!

So, I’m trying to organize my time better and will get my act together soon….

I hope!!!



I thought I’d show you a few “treasures” I’ve found at the thrift shop.

I picked up this guy for $15!!  He holds our towels when we’re in the hot tub!


This flower-pot was $10! It’s huge and very heavy!!


Here is a bamboo bird house.  I added three faux candles with timers.  It’s very pretty at night!!


This little brass hanger was .50!!


This is a beautiful ornate candle holder and bird in brass.  I think they set me back $5!!


I love the detail!!!


Here is a crystal ashtray but I think I’ll set candy in it!


Finally, for today, I picked up a couple of lamps!  You can never have too many lamps, I say!!

This one is crystal with a brass bottom.  The sticker on the glass said “Poland”.  I believe I paid $15!



This cute little telephone lamp is whimsical and fun!

I honestly don’t know if I can shop regular retail anymore!!!!!  I love a bargain and repurposing things!

How about you?  Do you love thrifting?

I have more treasures to share but that’s for another day!!

Until next time……



  1. Yes, I HAVE noticed, and in fact I stopped by last night to see if maybe I missed a post. Glad to hear you’re still with us and happily shopping away! lol

    You got yourself some fabulous things Angela, and the prices are unbelievable! I can’t decide which is my favorite! Lucky you!


  2. Wow you have some great treasures here, such great prices too!!! All very lovely, thank you for sharing.

  3. I love your new thrift shop finds…I used to love to check out the flea markets and thrift shops…maybe I’ll try it again soon.

  4. Love thrifting and glad to see you back! How great to work in a place with so many treasures!

  5. You have an eye for repurposing things! Some great finds. I especially like the ashtray to be used as a candy dish!

  6. I know so many people who love volunteering at their favorite charity store for the obvious reason of supporting a worthy cause and the perks is seeing all the great things that come through the door…great things that you have found and money going toward such a worthy cause!

  7. Gorgeous finds, Angela! You really have a good eye for finding treasures. Love the phone lamp!

  8. Good for you Angela! I loved to volunteer at the boys schools. I don’t do it as much as I did when they were little. I suppose they just don’t want their “Mom” around. Great finds Angela, so fun to score new treasures.
