I always enjoy seeing what sort of amazing finds people score at thrift shops, so I thought this would be a fun post to write and share with all of you. I sometimes dread the extra stops around town or think I'd prefer something new, but there's a certain charm these objects hold. These are some of my favorite thrifted treasures.
This set of plates from Hotel Reina Cristina in Spain were such a great find. I absolutely love the sayings on them and I like imagining the story behind them. How did these darling plates cross an entire ocean and have a continent?
I found this in the men's section and I have to say it is the coziest sweater I've ever owned. I'm always interested in wearing more muted toned shirts so I can pair it with any jewelry or pattern, so this was a perfect buy for me. I kind of like imagining this poor guy being forced to part with his favorite sweater because it's "too old" only for it to find its way in to the closet of a 20 year old girl.
I love reading, but books are expensive and it takes me forever to read one for fun in college. Buying books that have already been loved makes it a lot cheaper to grow my collection of books. I've found some books in Spanish, a book of poetry from around the world, and even the wonderful Maya Angelou (who throws out one of her books?!?).
I started a collection of owls in high school and some of the most unique ones in my collection have been found at thrift shops and flea markets. They just have a little extra character that adds to their charm.
Do you enjoy thrifting? What's your favorite things to shop for secondhand?
