Hey, I made it to a thrift store last month! Can you believe it? I’ve even been to one this month, but I’ve been pretty picky with what I’ll actually buy. I blame this crazy nesting, clean-all-the-things phase I’m going through.
One thing I didn’t hesitate to bring home were these vintage Jell-O molds. I had seen some over a year ago and passed on them, which I’ve regretted ever since. Needless to say, it didn’t take much waffling on my part to get them.
At an estate sale, I picked up these nature guide books…
…and this vintage visitors guide. All three of the books had this extreme musty smell that I couldn’t handle. I solved that problem by placing them in a plastic bag with a dryer sheet for a solid week. They’re out and on a bookshelf now and so far, so good.
I also picked up this bentwood chair from the estate sale, which I was pretty excited about finding. Later, when I began the process of cleaning it, I discovered it was actually in worse shape than I initially thought. It was becoming a bigger project than I was willing to undertake so I’m calling it a loss.
You win some and you lose some, right? What thrift store goodies have you been winning lately?
