Thrifting Finds and Cool Old Stuff

What do I like about thrift stores and estate sales and garage sales and eBay and … ? It’s a treasure hunt!

But I have too much stuff and am not enjoying it enough. So I am starting this new blog to show off things I find, things I treasure, and things I could be persuaded to get rid of. Won’t you join me?

I haven’t posted for such a long time. Here are my¬† most recent thrift store and estate sales finds.

Belleek vase

belleekStopped at the thrift store to drop off donations, took a quick look around, and found this Belleek vase for $1.09. Retail is about $35.

All the Belleek I have either was a gift or was found cheap at a thrift store.

I love cactus

I haven’t posted anything for a long time, partly because I am trying to “de-accession”–my spouse suggested I might find it easier to get rid of things if I gave it a fancy name! But I stopped in an antique store today and saw this marked way down. If was originally a “Drip-O-Lator,” but does not have its inner aluminum parts. Who cares?cactus pot
