{I Love Thrifting Event Find}

So the I Love Thrifting event was so much fun on Saturday - I got to meet lots of people who love to shop, thrift, decorate, and watch HGTV just like me! We met early in the morning at the flea market and then traveled to several thrift shops around the area. While shopping, I found a few amazing finds: a brass container that will be set on my coffee table {come back tomorrow to see the table I purchased this weekend}, a lovely vintage canary yellow Pyrex bowl {Pyrex - another obsession of mine}, and this amazing vintage tool tower {below} that I scored for only $8.00!! At first glance I thought, "what a cool nightstand this would make - or it could be a great table to use in my foyer, put a lamp on it, store magazines, candles, etc - or I could use it in my office space to store all of my jewelry supplies".... so I bought it! Needless to say, I have great intentions for this little guy...

To top off the day, out of all participants in the national I Love Thrifting contest, I won the big Giveaway. I never win anything, so I'm ecstatic to see what I've won - I'll be checking the mail daily for my prize. I'm sooo looking forward to the next event - I had a blast - THANKS Mr. Goodwill Hunting!

  2. Thank you Tia - I'm still deciding if I should keep it as is - or try to somehow repaint it - what do you think?
