Thrift Store Homeware Haul

A few weeks ago on a New Year's whim, I talked to my boyfriend about renovating the little shack we live in, on a budget of course, and shortly after my life has been filled with paint cans, sandpaper scraps, messes, and many sporadic shopping trips. Between the Goodwill in my town and a few of the closest Salvation Army stores, I've found some new decor to brighten up what are now clean, but empty rooms in our rented home. I didn't have enough space to photograph everything I've been collecting including a beautiful wooden mandala wall hanging hand-carved in India, some cute moccasin house booties, and a whole lot of glass bottles and ceramic pots for my small succulent, cacti, and air plant babies. A lot of the pieces I found were authentically vintage and made in Japan which I adore, and add a bit of that bohemian flair to our somewhat modern style.

How often do you visit the thrift store?

  2. i love buying little decorations and homewares bits from opshops. i know the whole super minimal everything is white thing is really in but i'm still way into organised clutter and having lots of cute things from all over the place. it's not as sleek but it looks more interesting and fun!

    1. I am the same way! Every time I want to go simple & chic it just doesn't work, so I embrace the artistic clutter :)

  3. I go whenever I can to our local charity shops. One of the best places I have been where there were loads was Blackpool of all places.....Love the finds you can get. In fact I think I will write a post soon on some of our finds. xxx
