One of my most favorite hobbies is thrifting (or treasure hunting as I prefer to call it).  I think that thrift stores are an amazing way to save money and to recycle and reuse wonderful stuff!  I just wanted to share some of the awesome things I have found over the past couple of months...

I found these two today.  The box is an old bridge game.  Well duplicate bridge whatever that is.  It looks like it has never been played with...and it probably never will.  I just thought the box was so cool!

Awww how cute!  The good old days...

Who would get rid of this?!

That is the icing on the cake isn't it?  I just loooove the look of that label.  I'm not even going to tell you what I paid for this...ok yes I am!  2 bucks!  The only bad thing about this case is it has a very distinct old lady perfume smell. (No offense to old lady perfume...I love me some Chanel # 5)

I have no idea what this is but I couldn't pass it up!  Maybe an isulator cap?

Can you say Industrial Chic?  Apparently people actually collect these metal staplers and this one is pretty rare. 

Groovy huh?

I believe these are rather Cottage Chic.  Hehe!

So yes I love my little collection of treasures!  As you can see my pictures aren't the best...anyone know of a decent $300 ish camera?


  1. The bell-shaped thing is upside down and missing it's base. It's a candle holder. It should have a 3-legged metal ring supporting it. Looks good as it is though.

  2. Oooh, I thought the mystery item was a bell insulator to go over a seedling... great finds, especially the suitcase!
