It's been so cold that I hate going out. All you Michigan readers understand....scraping the windows of you car, sitting on those cold seats, the icy steering wheel, that long walk from the car to your destination. It's awful. Consequently, I have not browsed the local thrift stores near as much as I'm used to. I'm sure all my friends, employees of all the local consignment shops, miss me. They probably think that I have died. It's not like me to neglect them like so. I don't like thinking about all of the great finds that have been slipping away as I have locked myself in the comfort of my home for the past three months.
However, I did venture out twice this week! Here are a few of my favorite finds:
1. Bowl - $3 - Goodwill
Such a calming color.
Geometric scarf - $1.50 - Salvation Army
I've been loving this geometric, modern trend lately. Triangles, squares, a lot of black and white. I was thrilled to have scored this at a thrift store (also, I wanted to show off my new watch in the photo below, I'm excited about it! $12)
3. Lamp - $5 - Goodwill
I'm planning on going a whole different route with my next house - more mid century modern. Simplicity. Lots of white, grays, natural woodgrain, geometric patterns.. I don't usually like to pay much over $5 thrifting,..but I really liked this one. It's exactly the look I'm going for. I thought it would be a great first piece, an inspiration.
4. Boots - $15
Last but not least, the boots. I typically would never pay $15 for clothing or shoes at a thrift store. I think that's overpriced. But I fell in LOVE with them. I mean $15 for boots is a pretty good deal, regardless. I did not have a hard time justifying this purchase in my head. They are slightly worn but they fit perfectly and are incredibly comfortable.
Can't wait for some of this wretched snow to melt so I can keep up a consistent pattern again....not to mention garage sales! They are right around the corner!
Have a beautiful day!
