It’s been a while since I shared a good home decor haul, and this one is filled with both thrift store finds and vintage treasures!
Since this is such a great grouping and really a perfect representation of what I like to look for when I’m shopping for vintage goods, I thought I would share each of these thrift store finds and vintage treasures and explain why I took these items home with me.
You have probably already seen a few of these things sprinkled throughout my home in previous posts and YouTube videos, but some of them are “never before seen”, haha and I’m excited to share them with you today.
Thrift Store Finds
First up, I found this neat set of copper bowls while thrifting for just a few bucks and I had to bring them home. I thought they would look beautiful stacked on a shelf for display, or they could even be incorporated into a table setting.
The next item I recently found while thrifting was this beautifully raw wood peg rack. I’m going to leave it as is and potentially use it in my kitchen for kitchen towels! I love the fact that I only paid $1.99 for it and it’s ready to hang – no need for paint or stain (unless I change my mind down the road).
These next few items were actually Christmas gifts, and both are bread boards!
My Mom got me the neat, smaller primitive board for Christmas and completely surprised me. I love the carved wood and the warm tone that it has.
The massive board that you see was a gift from my husband! I have been wanting a large antique breadboard to hang in my kitchen for years, and he got me this one for Christmas this year.
I love it for so many reasons. The warm wood tones, the imperfections, the way you can see the holes and the nails that were used to reattach it at one point. I just love it!
The other vintage treasures I have to share came from my Grandfather.
As you guys know, we lost him this past fall. Grandpa had a beautiful vintage antique collection and my mom invited all of us kids to come look around and see if there was anything we wanted.
I have shown it before, but this beautiful copper kettle was one of the treasures that I took home with me. I had it displayed next to my fireplace during Christmas, and I might keep it there for now!
I was also able to take Grandpa and Grandma’s blue and white ironstone dishes. They are so pretty and hold so many memories. I can remember eating off of these plates vividly as a little girl! I just had to bring them home.
Another treasure I found was this lovely white granite bowl. I love antique mixing bowls and this one is gorgeous!
Grandpa’s beautiful salt box was another item I have always adored. I love the detail and of course, the blue and white.
Finally, you guys already know how much I love antique duck decoys. My Grandpa had quite the collection and I just love the ones I was able to take home with me.
I hope you enjoyed the story behind each of these thrift finds and vintage treasures! They all are so unique in their own special way. I would love to hear about your favorite thrift store finds in the comments below!
