We are talking thrifty finds today. Do you get jealous when someone finds an unbelievable deal at a thrift store? I DO! I have gone to Habitat Restores, Goodwill and many many thrift stores. I really rarely ever find fabulous deals like most of my friends do. I seem to always be looking for a specific thing and then get discouraged if I can't find that item. Maybe I need to take a different approach and just enjoy looking around, then some fabulous deal with pop right out at me!
I am also not a big collector. I want my house to feel collected overtime, but I don't want knickknacks all over. I am really trying to simplify my life and just put items around my home that have meaning or that I absolutely love and know I will have on display for many years.
Well this past weekend I had a few minutes to waste and popped into a local thrift store here in town. I only got one item....but I am kind of in love with it.
I got this milk glass bowl for $8.00. It is in perfect condition! As soon as I saw it, I knew I had that perfect place where it could be on display. I also knew it could be a functional piece!
I decided to make it into one of my jewelry organizers. The little decorative loops on the edges are perfect for my earrings and the bowl can hold my frequently used bangles and cuffs.
It is such a simple and cheap way to organize the jewelry that usually gets stuffed into drawers. Now I can put those pieces on display!
Have you found any unbelievable deals at local thrift stores? Do tell!!
