Weekend Thrift Haul

Happy Monday! I hope you had a sweet weekend like we did! Because it's Monday, it's time to share my thrift haul, and this weekend didn't disappoint. We did go to a few places in Santa Fe, but I didn't have much luck there. We went straight to the opening day of our grower's market saturday morning, and across the street from where we parked, there was a small yard sale with nothing priced. I picked these little hankies? Napkins? Up for $2.00 and felt it was a good deal for both of us. Untitled After the market, gave dropped me off at a warehouse sale I'd heard about at Kiwi Industries, and I know, I know....it wasn't a 'thrift' store, but I scored like it was, so I'll share it, thankyouverymuch. I bought 5 yards of this beautiful fabric for only $16!!! Dang, right? Untitled Next up- we dropped by my in-law's house where Gabe told his mom that he really, really wants us to get bikes and she proceeds to tell us that there had been a block sale near his grandpa's house that morning, and his dad had donated an old bike to the sale! Fortunately, it didn't sell, so Gabe now has a bike to pick up today! (if you're local & have a women's bike for free or cheap, let me know! We're interested!) We decided to hit up a few ore sales, and I'm glad we did. I got this little bundle of chambray for .25! Untitled And then, I got this old jar that I'm sure I'll get a lot of use from for $1! There were even some old spaghetti noodles, but I decided against keeping those! Untitled And, for posterity's sake, one more jar photo because it shows off my curtains that I never ended up sharing on the blog. Untitled So, that's my thrift haul! I feel so fortunate with my recent finds! Did you score big while thrifting this weekend?

  2. Those are some awesome finds! :) and the bike, how cool that you guys are getting bikes! I think our bikes are the best purchases we've ever made...we took a long ride around town yesterday with the boys and it was so refreshing. :)

  3. I was finally able to visit a local thrift/antique store last week. I had the boys with me, and although they did pretty good, I decided to go back alone on Saturday. I browsed for well over an hour and found some great things. I'll have to share about them later on my blog :)

  4. Nice curtains, napkins and jar.=) And nice pics. I am new here, so you probably always post nice pics.=) But, as that is not my strong suit, I am always in admiration of anyone who takes nice ones. Have a wonderful day.

  5. Love the jar! I have a soft spot for vintage jars like this since my mom always have a beautiful button collection in one growing up.

  7. I'm so jealous of those linens! I have such a soft spot for anything with needlework on it. Someone put a lot of work into these beauties! I try to rescue as many as I find. Nice haul. Thanks for sharing!
