When Deb and I go visit my sister in North Carolina, our favorite thing to do is thrift and antique shop. The last time I went to see her, we found several fun things. I shared my haul with you, which is something that I do frequently. I love seeing what people find in their areas, what they pay for it, and what they will do with it. My sister came for a quick visit this week. So, of course, we did a bit of antique shopping and found some fun things. So I wanted to share this week’s antique finds with you today.
I LOVE vintage baskets. This one has the prettiest color and double hinged handles. I love the basket weave on this one, too. And I have none like it. They look so pretty sitting on top of antique cabinets, underneath side table, in the bathroom holding toilet paper, etc. I can think of so many uses for this.
I collect these pitures in the brown tone and have several. You really can’t beat the price of $9. Normally, I pay around $10-$15 for these so this was a great deal. I currently have a few of them from my collection on the open shelves in our kitchen.
I have always been obsessed with these little folding rulers. They come in all different colors and lengths. We have a few so I grabbed these to add to our collection.
I have one of these vintage wooden barrel taps in storage and am always intrigued by them. We stopped at this little thrift store and I found all three of these for $5 and under. I will figure out a cute way to display them.
One of my favorite things that I found during our antique excursions are these vintage chalkboards. I cannot imagine using these to write on during school. I know that my grandma was in a one-room schoolhouse, so she used these. And this one has one of the past user’s name written in pencil. After I bought these, I saw them at few other stores and they were twice this amount of money.
