Thrifted...

horse toys
I'm pretty thrilled about the things I've scored thrifting lately and felt it necessary to share. The combined total was less than $20 and I am officially on cloud nine. Score number 1: Breyer horses to add to my Kicky's collection. Score number 2: a ginormous copper-colored pendant light. I have no idea where I'll put it, but it's giant and copper-ish! Let me repeat: it's giant and copper-ish! Hecks yeah!!!

Score number 3: a pair of vintage leather Frye boots in my size. They're super comfortable, so that's why I'm standing all Clint Eastwood bad ass.

and Score number 4: this yellow and denim striped bag. Stripes...need I say more?

Hey Abbey,

What a nice coincidence and a very stylish lamp, indeed :)

I love all of your thrift finds!

Greetings from Hamburg, Germany,

That pendant is an amazing score! The colour is so perfect!

NICE!!! Seeing the possibilities -- a swell lamp, AND cool toys, AND kickin' boots -- of a Thrift Adventure makes me want to go spend a day doing the same thing! And I think I will!

felicia said...

Emma at The Marion House Book said...

That looks like a Tom DIxon light? Do you think it is? And I love your Frye boots. I have two pairs myself (both thrifted) and I capital "L" love them.

A most excellent score of lovely items. I love to go thrift shopping. My husband says i should call Goodwill "the mother ship". Ha!

What luck! That light is especially super amazing. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

Rachel Marie said...

Laurie in Georgia said...

Sooooo cool! I'm positively green with envy...

Do you live in a good thrifting town? I live in a small-ish city that is home to a large-ish art school, so there's a lot of competition for the good stuff. Oy!

Lucky you! Frye boots (and really all cowboy boots) look so much better when they've been broken in - it's nice not to have to do the work yourself!

elizabeth said...

those are all awesome...I'm jealous!

elizabeth said...
