Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

15 July
Hello, welcome back for Treasure Trove Tuesday! ;o) I had a pretty good weekend as far as treasure hunting goes, here is what I found.

thrifting finds

Looks pretty good right?!

I picked up this magazine rack for only $2! It has a smudge of blue which I hope will come off so I don't have to repaint the entire piece. I think I'll probably use it in my craft studio.

I found this fun globe pillow for .50 cents. I have a collection of globes going so I thought a globe pillow would be fun :o)

Some vintage rulers for my shop, Little Vintage Cottage. Collections of old rulers are one of my best sellers.

This lovely, lacy, crisp white, bit-of-beauty is a bed skirt! Wouldn't it be pretty in a shabby chic bedroom?

Another of my best sellers is vintage picture frames like these...

I thought the necklaces were sweet, I could even see wearing all three together.

The tomato pin cushion is for my collection... .50 cents. The adorable recipe box will go to the shop!

I don't really know what these are called... hose clamps? But there is an amusing story about them... We had stopped at a garage sale put on by a bunch of kids probably in their 20's and when I asked one of them how much they were he said "uhhhh... what are they... earrings?" I almost busted out laughing! "I guess if you are into really big gauges they might be earrings!!

 Some wooden pieces that will get makeovers.

I have a small collection of these little beaded necklaces... don't ask me why... I collect weird things... I think they are adorable :o)

I'm not sure if I'll keep this box or not yet. I love pretty vintage boxes like this to store my craft supplies.

Such a pretty mint green color inside!

A couple of old harvest baskets.

This is actually a treasure I bought on Etsy to make a teddy bear with. I found it at a lovely shop in the Ukraine called Handy Happy Vintage. I just love it that I can shop from my home all around the world!

Here are some fabric samples I picked up, also to make bears with. Can't you just see a little orange bear for Halloween from the fabric on the left? A couple of them are even mohair! The bears will eventually be listed at Something Special Bear.

I think this old picture is so pretty!

Don't you just looove this adorable little yellow ladder!?

So, what do you think? Anything you would have picked up for yourself?

Don't miss a single post!

  1. I most definitely would have picked up the magazine rack, the globe pillow, and the harvest baskets. I probably would have picked up the bed skirt too as it matches a couple pillows I thrifted a while back. Great finds as always! Have a great day.

    Blessings, Vicky

  2. oh my goodness. You amaze me with your lovely finds. I love it all! I especially love the yellow ladder, what a find! And I love that picture of the little girl with her dog. Adorable. Such a fun read. Blessings and sunshine, Valerie
