Recent Thrifting Finds

Thursday, November 21, 2019

Happy Thursday! I thought it would be fun to do a round up of some of the things I've found thrifting for the last couple of months. I've been really striking gold lately!

First up, back in August I snatched up this vintage White sewing machine at my local goodwill. I almost didn't open up the case to see what was inside. I'm so glad I did! It was missing a bobbin case, but was only $15! I was able to find a bobbin case on etsy and with a little cleaning and oil, it's working just fine. It definitely needs more care, but I am glad I could save this machine!

I haven't been finding quite as many vintage sheets lately, but have still managed to find some really pretty ones.

It's been many years since I've found Cathrineholm at the thrift store, and I recently found this pan at a habitat for humanity restore. As you can see, it was in pretty bad condition, with a ton of baked on grime on the bottom. For $5 I decided to see if I could clean it up.

Ta-da! This is the pan after cleaning. It took a lot of elbow grease, but it looks so much better! I documented the entire cleaning process on my instagram stories (I saved them in a highlight, @jenib320), if you want to see the process. It pretty much just had to be scraped off.

Cute little tray I picked up for a few dollars.

I love vintage towels and when I saw this rainbow Disney one, I didn't hesitate to pick it up! So fun!

I have a deep love for painted metal, so this little metal toolbox was an exciting find for me. Oftentimes I find them with rust, but this one happened to be rust free!

I almost didn't grab this painting because the frame isn't my style. I do love the floral though, and it's an original. I plan to re-frame it and I think it will be quite cute! Bonus, my Mom is going to take the frame. I think she's going to spray paint it!

Lastly, old jars and a brown bottle. This is the kind of stuff I just can't leave behind. So good!

That's most of what I've found in the last few months. I was also lucky enough to find a women's carhartt work jacket that fits me, a big old orange cooler, and a few Christmas ornaments. I love thrifting! :)

Have a Great Day!
