A couple of years ago, my mom, sisters, and I would stop at a garage sale on a Saturday morning on the way to the mall. We always had so much fun doing it, that we started planning our Saturday mornings around it. First stop, Cuban bakery for some 'pastelitos' pastries and then a morning of garage sales.
Thrift stores were really not a place I ever frequented, unless looking for a Halloween costume years ago. When I first discovered design/decorating blogs, I realized the things that people were finding at thrift stores were pretty amazing. So I decided to go find myself an owl and was hooked. I find myself leaving work and making a little stop on my way home. If my husband is at a game on a Sunday, I may take a little trip. I have even gotten my sisters involved. On Friday, after work, we took a trip to the Faith Farm Thrift Store big sale event. We had my niece and nephew in tow and ended up being out until 10:00 p.m. Of course, we made a stop for dinner on the way home.
I've decided to do a weekly recap on Mondays of all the things I find throughout the week. Here are my finds for the week.
lamp was my last post. I found it for $8.00 at Goodwill. I spray painted it white the same day I brought it home. I'm loving it for my new office.
Do you have any good finds lately?
