Thrift stores (charity shops) are a weakness of mine. Probably because I've found some really awesome pieces (including a $400+ humidor, new, for less than $5). But it's easy to accumulate junk. And, as we are clearing our house entirely of clutter before 2014, I've avoided thrift stores because I don't want to add to it.
However, the other night we were out and about and I decided it would be fun to hit up a Goodwill. So glad I did. Here are my finds:
These glasses are made in france (they're a sort of jam jar). I have smaller ones I use for some makeup pieces, but when I saw the 2 larger ones I knew I needed them for more convenient brush storage. Previously my brushes were in a square vase with these glass stones, but this makes it easier to pull out my eye brushes when I'm doing my eyes or the face brushes.
My new rule of thumb with thrift store finds is that I must know what I'm doing with it. All of these pieces will be used now (or around Christmas/winter time for the platter). The game table was a splurge (at $50), but something that we will be able to actually enjoy.
So, thrift stores....love them or hate them? Any great finds you've made?
