One of our most favorite ways to shop is buying second hand or better yet "vintage." Whether thrifting, antiquing, flea market-ing, yard sale-ing.. you name it! We love snagging a good deal on something that has character. A few posts back, we shared some of our secret thrifting tips. Click here to read them! This morning, I wanted to show you some of my prized "vintage" finds.
I love interior decorating and even call it a hobby. So, one item I feel that can add to a room and at the very same time be useful are magazine racks/record holders. This black leather one with a metal handle and a wooden top was my first one. I purchased it for $19.99 at a local antique shop. It now holds my hubby's car magazines on his side of our bedroom.
This jewelry holder/stand below, I snagged at a Unique Thrift Store for $3. I love how it has that antique feel and adds a little pop of color/pattern to our room.
Also on this table are two vintage necklaces, one from each of our Grand-mas. They are so dear to me.
I found the most unique top for $12 at a consignment shop while on a mini vacation. I fell in love with it's quirkiness and how I hadn't seen something like it before. I later found it in a small local shop for around $80. What a steal!
Needless to say, you can find us bargain hunting/antiquing at least once a month. And we're always up for company!
