Thrifty Thursday Vol. 10: Creatures

I've been finding lots of animal-themed items at the thrift stores lately. They're so fun and add so much character to your space!

An adorable mid-century dog lamp

A green ceramic circus elephant

Is it just me or does this cat look like Stewie from "Family Guy"?

A whimsical camel
An eyeglass-holder doggie

A barnyard pig

This deer lamp is definitely a keeper!

I went to the swap meet for the first time in ages last weekend and scored this cat for $2! Needless to say, I'm already planning for my next trip this weekend!

Another cute little deer figurine

And a rooster!

Have a great weekend everyone! I'm sharing my finds on Apron Thrift Girl, click the link to check out all of the finds if you're interested!


  1. Such cool items! I always find the animal figures so interesting. I really like BOTH of those lamps!

  2. So cute animals! Greetings from Germany!

  3. Your photos are so great! Do you use a photo light tent? I am need to improve my photos for Ebay. Do you have any suggestions?

    1. Yes, actually I've been using a light box that I made- it's just a cardboard box lined with white posterboard. There are lots of tutorials online explaining how to make them. For the most part I just use natural daylight (the pictures always come out best that way) and I use a DSLR camera (Canon Rebel), which I think makes a big difference in picture quality. Hope that helps!
