New Old Stuff
I have so many things to blog about but I just have to share this right now before I BUST!! I have noticed a few "new" pieces of furniture in the windows of our local Goodwill store. Well, I have been itching to go in and see what they were. There was a bed, the strangest, coolest double amoire (I've never seen one of those before) and some other odds and ends. I ended up getting these two side tables:
I have been looking for one in this shape for a while.
I just thought this one was fun and funky.
I know I paid way too much for these, $24.99 each, and I realize things in our Goodwill seem VERY high compared to the prices I see people blog about all the time, but I think it goes to a good cause and it's still much cheaper than I could get a new table for. Besides, these are perfect for a "shabby chic" redo!!
Next I found some vintage sheets. I had checked there for some a couple of weeks ago and they didnt have any, so I was excited to find these:
Again, I feel like these were pricey, $4.99 each, compared to the $1-$3 i usually hear others paying, but I was glad to find them, so I got them anyway.
And while I was looking for the vintage sheets, I happened up this sweet and lovely piece of history....BONUS!!! I never gave a second thought to whether or not I would buy it depending on the price. I was going to have this no matter what!!!! Here she is:
She is hand-pieced and hand-quilted. There are several worn out spots, but I don't care. I will repurpose her and love her forever. It makes me sad to see something that had so much love put into it, tossed aside. I think the $19.99 I paid for her was a bargain. I rescued her and think this was my lucky day!
