out of the bin volume two

here we are again folks, it's the second week of my new thrifting feature. last week i promised to include a linky for anyone else who wants to share where and how they find their treasures and i really hope some of you link up.  i want to see your goodies!  and i need to think of a better name than "out of the bin" - any ideas?

one enchanted tuesday i saw this calling me from across a crowded room:

 
 
 lady at the register: um, this is gonna be $2, just for this, do you still want it?

me:  oh, yeah, that's okay

lady: that's okay, you don't want it?

me: no, it's okay that it's $2.  i want it.

-

i told luke that story and he was like, "YOU PAID TWO WHOLE DOLLARS FOR THAT THING!?" yes, darling, sorry to be such a spendthrift.

now it is your turn! can't wait to see what you found and where you found it!
can you tell i am excited! exclamation!

  4. Gorgeous!!!! What I found this week isn't nearly so beautiful but it made me happy. We're at a wellness visit for Fia, so I'll post and link up when I get to a real computer.

  5. That is so cute! I love the white frame. I think a good deal of your thrifting success must come from being brave. I don't know if I would have been brave enough to actually buy that, but look how wonderful it is at home.

  6. I get that all the time from Michael "you actually paid money for that?"

    Wish I could link up, I didn't go into any stores this week! (believe it or not)

  11. also, please I'd like to go there one day soon. what are the chances we could take a kid-free trip? are they open on Saturdays?

  12. I wish I still lived near a thrift store (or 10!) that I loved. Makes the de-cluttering easier...but I miss that hunting for treasures. So, I'll just swoon over your lovely antique finds.
    PS super idea, by the way.

  13. okay, it is my goal now to hit up our local thrift store at least once a week. and maybe even find something!

  14. $2 for something which would have taken someone HOURS to make?! I would have paid $50, that is a beautiful find! I'm going to have to start taking my camera thrifting.

  15. I love that. I would have even spent $3.

  17. i love when i come home from the thrift store and show something to bryan that is absolutely fantastic and he looks at me like i'm nuts. and then he smiles and says 'it's beautiful.'
    by the way, your framing is perfection.

  18. I went to our Goodwill outlet yesterday, and it was neat, but now my best friend & I want to come to Indy to yours. I think we may have to do a day trip or an overnight. I have given her the thrifting bug and she can't be stopped.

    Promise to link up this time.....pinkie promise.

  21. Are you going to do another one of these? I found a beautiful table cloth today. Thought of you. Hope all is well. I saw Elizabeth (@claritychaos) today, too. Wish we all could hang.

    Love,
