Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

22 July
Let's just get right to it shall we?! No need for unnecessary chit-chat! :o)

thrifting finds

A little bit closer look...

I love this lamp! It works great, all it needs is a shade! My plan is to leave it natural wood (maybe just seal it) and use it in my decor. It was $2.00.

I thought these vintage file boxes were cool.

I like the handles!

Check out this old milk bottle!

I love the graphics on it!

And aren't these little jelly  jar glasses cute?! I like the shape and the little pedestal bases :o)

This little cookbook also caught my eye.

 I think the pictures are cool looking.

This little trio doesn't look like they've ever been used. There is a makeup pouch, eye glasses holder, and tissue holder, cute!

A vintage jewelry box...

With pretty blue interior.

Another souvenir plaque. I picked up a bunch of these a couple of weeks ago, this one is from Amarillo Texas.

And this... I. LOVE. THIS... like totally love... it's ok if you think I'm weird ;o) I'm used to it!

It has obviously been sitting outside for years. When I saw it, it was laying upside down on top of a crate... sort of off by itself... it was $2.00.  Poor little thing... I feel kinda sorry for it... it needs to be beautiful again! :o)

Look at that cracked and fading leather! My plan is to oil the leather and see what it looks like then. Does anyone know what kind of oil I would use? I'm sure with a little research I can figure it out but I thought maybe one of my lovely readers might know!

I actually found this little sweetie last weekend but forgot to take a picture of him for that week's trove post. 

He is made of concrete and was $5.00.

He is now nestled in next to my other outdoor treasures.

That's it for this Treasure Trove Tuesday, I hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the week!

  1. Great finds as always! I think my favorite this week is milk jar and the wooden lamp. That would look great in your living room. I think the little footstool is cute, and I know you will make it look fabulous! Have a great day...Vicky

  2. The milk jug is my favorite, altho that stool is running a close second. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

  3. That little cookbook is the exact one my mom had for years!!!

  4. You might want to read about using Tung oil on the leather (and the wood!) footstool. You should be able to find it with the paints in any hardware store. By the way, I think that was your best purchase. Not sure it looks sturdy enough for feet, but a tray with coffee and cookies would look great. A new follower--Linda@Wetcreek Blog
