Camped by the beautiful shores of West Point Lake near LaGrange, Georgia, no trip could ever be complete without checking out the local sites…mainly Salvation Army and Goodwill!
Grand Southern mansions abound, but my sights were set on several weekly visits to Salvation Army, Goodwill, a local salvage shop, and whatever estate sales I could find, LOL.
With the lake as a backdrop, and an old picnic table and the back of the plastic tablecloth as my setup, here are the first wonderful finds!
Thrift Store Haul
Vintage Train Case…
in near perfect condition!
With the tray too! I couldn’t resist.
What do you think of train cases? Are they still selling in your opinion?
Vintage Rolling Pin…
I got this from the estate sale, and I caved because of the beautiful red handles. Another shopper asked where it was as I was carrying it around…confirmation of a good find.
Another estate sale find…
3 Natural Fiber Trivets
Set 12 Brass Napkin Rings.
These are in pretty good shape, but I’ll give them a bit of a polish.
Shabby Chic Floral Tray…
another find I couldn’t resist! (a bit of damage on the back, which I have a solution for) was the reason I got it so cheap.
Wooden Shelf with Fretwork…
…destined for a makeover.
Boxed Note Cards
I’ll give these a try on Ebay. Someone told me note cards were pretty good sellers. I haven’t tried them yet. We’ll see.
Fly Fishing Note Cards
I wasn’t sure about these, but hubby said get them. You can’t see it very well, but they’re embossed with a fly fishing reel…kinda cute and masculine looking. But do men write notes???
Pink Chevron Scarf
This is for a project I have in mind.
Set of Twin Sheets
…for use in the same project
I plan on keeping this for a while.
I plan to paint and display some cute mugs on this. I’ve never tried one of these before.
A Vintage Sewing Basket
I swore I’d never buy another one of these…but I caved when…
…I saw how good a shape the inside was in. And I swear I never saw the poodle until I was taking photos for this post!
And now for my prize find!
Vintage Paris Poodle Train Case
Before I even got out of the store, 2 people commented on how cute it was!
What do you think and which is your favorite?
