We are really blessed to have some really awesome friends. Our friends, Anna and Steve, are the sweetest couple. They live 3 hours from us, but we try to see each other as much as we can. They’re one of those couples that’s fun to play house with over the weekend. They have us for weekends and we have them for weekends and it always feels like home. Our kiddos play together well and we always have a good time. We are all pretty much family at this point. If you took a blood sample it would probably reveal we are all related now.
Anna likes to thrift and that is something we got to do together when I was in town. We set out to see what little gems her town had to offer. I love her style. Her home is comfortable, she decorates with her kiddos art (which I adore), and she loves to do home projects. She has country roots, but she has a more modern spin on them and her home has very traditional bones.
So here we are ready to find some treasures:
Our first stop was a store with the cutest name ever:
Anna scored some good stuff, I saw some fun things, but nothing on my list.
Then there was this place:
It was huge, it was set up with individual vendor booths, and the prices were good and they had sales. We had a blast looking through everything together. I found some goodies to bring home:
Here’s how it breaks down:
• Ralph Lauren Umbrella with Leather Handle $12 with an additional 15% off
• Gold antelope $10 with an additional 20% off
• Single antler $5 with an additional 20% off
• Mounted antlers $15 with an additional 15% off
• 4 Vanity Fair slips for $1 each (I like to sleep in them in the warmer months)
everything together came in under $40
I love a good quality umbrella and I needed one since I lost my last one. I think I left it at a restaurant?
The mounted antlers I plan on working into our library wall, but for now they are just hanging out here.
I love a single antler to work into tablescapes.
The antelope I named Gertrude and she is on my desk right now.
Sometimes I debate back and forth whether to post things that I thrifted. I think it’s good to show that you can have a stylish home on a budget. I also like that something that has been tossed aside is given a new appreciation and home. When I look around our home, I think most of the things I really love have been handed down, thrifted, or made over. I’ve said it before, but this is why I thrift.
Enjoy your weekend!!
