Thrift Finds

Thrift FindsDuring tonight’s Thursday thrift adventure I found a couple unique items plus a nice Gaiam yoga mat I had been looking for (not pictured). The best yoga mat I’ve ever had was a cheap one from Value Village, so I have been watching for another one to try. I had heard Gaiam mats are hit and miss so here’s hoping it is non-stick!

I started my evening with a stop at the jewellery rack. I was drawn to two pieces, a gold chain with anchor pin pendant and a multi coloured necklace. I later found out the one necklace is actually a $50 Fossil necklace, score! I think the anchor one will be really fun for summer.

I then veered over to the assorted housewares section and heard a piece of apple green pottery calling my name. It’s not perfect, it’s full of drips – and I love it! It has found a very cozy home in my kitchen.

With a 30% off coupon I snagged all these pieces for under $20!

1. Gaiam Yoga Mat $7
2. Pottery $6
3. Necklaces $5
Total: $20

Pottery $29.99After tonight’s thrifting adventure, I would like to once again address the most popular rant of the typical shopper: the price. As I was making my way around to the front of the store headed toward the cash, I happened to glance over my shoulder and noticed something familiar. I had donated some items the week before as I was de-cluttering my living room space, I decided I didn’t need so many trinkets and pieces of cheap pottery when I had perfectly good local artist pieces on display.

This piece of pottery is meant to have two pieces, the top which they had featured on the shelf and then a base for it to sit in. I imagine it was meant for a candle – though I didn’t use it for this purpose. So thought number one: it’s missing its base (which I did donate at the same time); thought number two: HOLY MACKEREL $29.99?!!
