Hey friend, I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend! What did you do? We started it with visiting the Hunt & Gather vintage market Friday night, where I bought some of the items below and also a handmade farmhouse-style desk for my new office space (I’ll share more details on that soon). The rest of the 3-day weekend was spent hanging out with family and friends and I hardly even opened my laptop at all – it felt great to wind down a little bit.
With yard sale season in full swing and a couple spring markets under my belt, I’m sharing some of my recent treasure hunting finds… Like this beautiful antique secretary, which might end up white and blue:
And this dresser with mirror (not shown, obviously) – I’m thinking maybe another nailhead treatment for this one:
That’s it for furniture, since I already have a lot of it in my stash. But I found this very cool vintage leather suitcase…
Which still has its O’Hare airport tag and an “Inspected Baggage” sticker…
And a 1975 Phoenix Gazette newspaper inside.
I love this large frame as-is:
And this super cool woven basket too:
These metal drawers need cleaned up and there might be a place for them in my new office (hmmmm… we’ll see):
These scales were from yard sales, and I’m planning to take them to my booth:
And these glass bottles and dishes too:
Which above is your favorite – and what thrifted treasures have you found lately? I’d love to hear!
