My sister came for a visit from North Carolina this past weekend. She was here only for a few days for a get together with the family. She arrived late Thursday evening and had to leave early Sunday morning. Being my only sibling, I hated to see her go. Because we always have so much fun together. One of the things we do when we are together is usually run around to thrift stores and antique places. This time was no exception. And, I came home with a small antique haul this past weekend and wanted to share.
If you like these antique hauls as much as I do, check out my past ones. I love seeing what other people find in their areas and how much they pay for things. Let’s get on to what I found.
First off… do I need anything? Absolutely not. My home decor room is pretty full. But I love switching out decor on the regular. Most of my items in my home decor room are things I have had for years that I picked up for a few dollars. I don’t like to get rid of my antique finds because they never go out of style. Sometimes, I get tired of them so they spend time downstairs in that room.
I found this vintage oil lamp turned electric at the first place we stopped. I almost didn’t see it because it had a really dated lamp shade from the 80s on it. It may have even had ducks along the bottom. I remember them well. Ha! In fact, I probably had one like it in my first home that I bought and decorated. This will look adorable with a silicone nightlight bulb that resembles a flame. And, it will probably get tucked into the huge cabinet in the dining room, which in’t decorated yet. The chicken coop has been getting all of our attention these days since the weather warmed up a bit. This lamp was $20.
Also.. you can get kits to do this yourself, which I think I’m going to do. Because I have a really cool brass oil lamp that I love.
I love a great basket. This one popped out at me because of the color and the shape. Old baskets add back in the warmth to my decor with all of the white. They also look great on top of cabinets if you don’t want to actually use them for anything. This basket will probably go inside that large cabinet as well and was only $10. So, I couldn’t pass it up.
I have a small collection of majolica flower pots and pitchers. And, I love them. I don’t know if this one is an actual majolica flower pot because it feels a bit lighter weight. And it isn’t glazed on the bottom so it may be a knock off version of one. But, it’ really pretty as it has lighter greens. And… the best part. It was only $8.
I love having a home that is eclectic with lots of different types of antique and vintage finds. And, you already know that I love a great collection. In fact, it is what makes each of our homes unique. Are you an antique collector of all things, like me?
