Hi everyone and welcome to the 46th edition of Thrifty Thursday, where I share my weekly thrift store/estate sale/yard sale/flea market finds
Last weekend, Phillip and I were lucky enough to get a whole day off together on Saturday, and we decided to make the most of it and hit up some local estate and yard sales. In addition to fun vintage goodies for our antique space, I was on the lookout for planters, gardening books, and plant stands for a little backyard makeover I was planning!
The first sale we went to was also the best. We found all of these things there:
A little "Garlic Gus" pixie, another sixties head planter, two California pottery planters, and a ceramic Siamese cat.
Following that, we headed to another estate sale in Nipomo, which turned out to be quite disappointing (didn't buy a single thing), but on our way back to the freeway we spotted a sign for another sale and decided to go check it out! This one was much more exciting and we got several things there for great prices:
After that, we headed up to Arroyo Grande, where we hit up another estate sale. This one was really expensive- they had some cool items but they just weren't worth paying that much since we were planning to resell. I did, however, walk out with these three cool silk scarves for $3 apiece and this little ceramic fish!
After that, we decided to head up to San Luis Obispo and check out the Achievement House. We found some pretty cool stuff there and I was able to find a good gardening book and a couple of plants too! (For those of you who are local, check them out! They've got a great bargain store and nursery)
We also found some great stuff in the bargain store:
Next, we headed over to downtown, where I did a bit of fabric shopping at Beverly's, and then we went to Mission Thrift, where we found these:
Anyway, that concluded our Saturday morning finds. We found so much great stuff that I decided to take a thrift-shopping hiatus for the rest of the week. It was an excellent day!
Thanks for stopping by! I'll be linking up at my usual haunts: Apron Thrift Girl, A Living Space, Sir Thrift A Lot, and Joyful Treasure Hunting. Head on over and check out all of the finds for this week!
