I popped into the thrift store on my way to Costco yesterday, not expecting to find anything interesting. I hit the home section right away (as I always do). To my surprise and delight, I came away with a little stash of decorative items for my home for a grand total of $8.
I seem to be drawn to brown items - particularly pottery and wood. I guess I like the warm, cozy feel of them. But I like coloured decor items too. I guess I just like everything! And it shows in this house. I wish I was a dedicated collector of one type of thing like other people.
When decorating, I find it comes in handy to have items of various heights. This candle holder (which was made in India) certainly has enough height to add interest to a decorative vignette. It was $1.99.
I feel kind of bad. This minimalist brown wooden vase (carafe?) was the smallest in a set of three, but I didn't really like the way they looked together so I only bought the one. Is that bad?
I couldn't resist this Rustique Canada pottery mug for 99 cents. I just have to decide what to use it for (besides a mug obviously). Any ideas?
I was very excited to find this Luthje Denmark teak serving tray for just $2.99. I love how the three little glass dishes fit into it like a puzzle.
I am quite happy with my finds, especially since I didn't expect to find anything at all!
How about you? Any great finds recently?
