Thrifty Thursday Vol. 40: Tiki, Barware, and Hankies Galore

Hello everyone! Welcome to the latest edition of my Thrifty Thursday posts, where I share my thrift store/garage sale/flea market finds for the week. We found some great stuff for our space this week! 

A mid-century clay bottle with a funny face and a tiki brasier (unfortunately missing the grill on the top). They're both in the antique space.
A plate with a cute Scandinavian bird motif, some cute little statues, a wooden owl, and a floral saucer.

This cool leather bag was given to us by Phillip's stepmom, who inherited it from a relative. I think I'm going to start keeping my camera in this!
We scored a huge stack of vintage hankies with great prints. Most will be going in the space (except for the ones I'll keep, of course!).
Phillip found all of this great sixties barware and this creamer in one trip!
A couple of vintage Tigger stuffed animals.
Lastly, a Maori woodcarving, an Asian-motif metal tray, and a glass mug featuring Humpty Dumpty and Tom the Piper's Son.

Did anyone else go thrifting this week? What did you find?

I'll be linking up at Apron Thrift Girl, A Living Space, Sir Thrift A Lot, Joyful Treasure Hunting, and Young Heart. Head on over and check out all of the finds for this week!

  If you see any items you like, they may be listed on Phillip's Ebay account, so take a looksie!


  1. I absolutely love that leather bag. SOO cute and looks like something you'd pay hundreds for today. I'm also coveting the Chinoiserie tray!

    1. Thanks Heather! I love the bag too! Unfortunately, it was owned by a heavy smoker and it still smells strongly of cigarette smoke-yuck! I need to look into de-odorizing it!

  2. That bag is beautiful! Your camera is lucky! Love the tiki brazer, I've never seen one in the wilds before. Nice finds!

    1. Thanks Melissa! Phillip was really into tiki stuff for a while and he had never seen one either. He did find a picture in a book and that's how we realized that it's a little grill! At first we thought it was a planter.

    1. I'm so sorry, in trying to reply to your comment, I accidentally deleted it! Anyway, I was going to say that's a great idea to use a binder for hankies! I'm constantly re-folding them every time I stop by our space. Might have to try that one!
