Treasure Trove Tuesday - My Latest Thrifting Finds

04 August
I went to Goodwill the other day! I'm so happy that the thrift stores are open again now, I've been missing my thrifting jaunts 😁

Now that I've got almost everything I had hoarded listed in my Etsy shop, Little Boho Cottage, and things have been selling like crazy, I actually need to restock a little bit!

Would you like to see what I found?

I am keeping some of these finds but the rest will make their way into the shop!

Treasure Trove Tuesday - My Latest Thrifting Finds

Treasure Trove Tuesday Finds
The first thing I found was this hummingbird feeder, it was $2.99 and appeared to be in really good shape.

Since I've been working on my yard again, and I just love watching the birds, I thought it would be so nice to have some hummingbirds come to visit!

I hung it up Sunday afternoon and on Monday morning there was a little cutie flitting around it! I was so excited and a little surprised that he found it so quickly!!

I used a recipe for nectar that I found at Bird Watching HQ.

Next, I went down the picture aisle and found a couple that I'll be dressing up a bit. Check out this post for some really fun ideas for dressing up old pictures: 9 Awesome Ways to Upcycle Thrift Store Paintings.

Price $1.99 each, Value after altering, $24 - 26.


This one is really nicely done. At first, I thought it was a print decoupaged onto a board but it's actually a painting!

Then I turned down the aisle with all the dishes and glasses. I found this cool Mexican redware pottery!

It's marked on the bottom, "Made in Mexico," though you can barely see that.

She's a strange color too... kind of purple but I liked her details. She was $2.99.

I painted her white and added her to my white Mary collection. See her nestled in the back there?

I may give her another coat of a creamier off-white color but I don't have any right now.

This wooden carving of Jesus on the cross is different. I didn't know what INRI meant but I looked it up and found that In Latin, the text “JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS” would have been written, “Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum.” Abbreviated, this phrase results in “INRI.”

Price $1.99, Value $16 - 18.

The larger one is marked on the bottom, the smaller one isn't marked.

These old iron trivets were actually given to me, I didn't get them at Goodwill. I'm trying to decide if I should paint them or leave as is. What do you think?
