For the past few weeks, I’ve been hitting up all the thrift stores for furniture and other accessories. Without fail, I usually find at least one bargain wherever I go. Here’s just a sample of what I’ve accumulated in the past week.
This is a cute little tin-punched cupboard I found at a church thrift store. It just needs a little TLC and it will look great!
I couldn’t resist these little strawberry canisters. My grandfather loved strawberries (and so do I) and seeing them always makes me think of him.
This is a sewing table from the “Standard” company. This one probably dates around the early 1900’s (Standard was eventually bought by Singer). I don’t need another sewing machine – but the cabinet makes a nice end table.
Here it is opened up. You can see that it has a test piece of fabric in it from at least 40 years ago (I know this because the woman I bought it from had it for 40 years and never used it as a sewing machine).
This is a wardrobe that is about 12 feet tall. My decorator said I needed some bigger/taller furniture for the bedroom to add variety. This is exactly the kind of piece I pictured in my head. It’s nice solid wood (oak or some other hardwood), and really just needs to be cleaned up a bit.
Here it is opened. My husband will get to use this for his clothes. Eventually, when I get more quilts, I will probably take this and use it for quilt displays (which means my husband will have to find something else for his clothes).
Speaking of quilts, here is an antique quilt I found at Goodwill for $10! It is in pretty sad condition – lots of holes, but there are several places where there are no tears. I haven’t yet decided what I will do with it.
I love the colors and the pattern. I was so excited when I saw this. As I paid for it, the cashier said – “I didn’t think anyone would buy this.” I said, “I can’t believe someone didn’t buy it already!”.
That’s all for now – thanks for looking! Meanwhile, back to sewing for me :).
