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……

    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!

  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. Danni@SiloHillFarm :

    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. shirley@housepitalitydesigns :

    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.
