After spending the month of May frantically prepping and working the Luckett’s Spring Market and the Falls Church show at Stifel & Capra, we took several days off for some much needed R&R.  But we’re back now, visiting our favorite thrift stores and local estate sales.  Found some great deals this week.

This chair has beautiful wood details, but the upholstery needs replacing.  Luckily, we are just starting an upholstery class (details in upcoming posts).

This cute round end table, with metal mesh in the doors, will look great once it’s redone.

This little bench has the well-worn look that is so popular now.

We couldn’t resist this old chest being sold at a yard sale.

Amazingly, this lamp, with it’s charming glass globe, was still around on the last day of an estate sale (yes, at 50% off).

Pair of bird prints.

We figured this vintage blanket might be good for reupholstering chairs or benches, or just hanging at the end of a bed or on a chair.

Here is a Red Cliff ironstone pitcher with a grapevine pattern.

And a beautiful green vase with crackled glaze.

Janice couldn’t resist this vintage tape dispenser.

We’re not sure what this item is (bacon press, grate?), but we’re thinking of attaching it to something as a towel rack.

The weekend wound down with a final trip to the local estate sales to see what we could find discounted on the last day of the sales.  Here is our haul for today.

A brown anchor pitcher, with it’s naturally worn spots on the chain, revealing a wonderful reddish-orange color.

A crock, whisk broom, child’s blackboard, door knobs, and a small salt sack.


We decided to pick up a collection of crystal bottle tops.  Many of the bottles we find are missing them.  However, they also look beautiful just displayed in a bowl.

And last, but not least, check out what Janice did with an old clothespin bag she picked up this weekend.

We’re glad to be back on the hunt again.  In our next post, we will let you know how our first upholstery class went.
