A Thrifting We Will Go

It's fun to see all of the tourist spots when you're on vacation, but one of my favorite spots to visit has been (I know you'll be surprised) a GIANT thrift store called Unique.
This place is huge!
With rows and rows of treasures just waiting to be found. We spent hours searching for goodies. 

The prices were better than my thrift stores back home.
I went there with two of my daughter's friends who were searching for things to decorate their apartments.

Both girls found incredible buys on furniture pieces. 
Look at the cart full off goodies one friend found.
We're redesigning her master bedroom and using many of these items. 
I'm helping both girls decorate their homes in exchange for letting me share the before and after photos with you.
I managed to find a couple of treasures myself. 
A small German silver container, a footed silver tray, a milk glass vase, and a cream vase to add to my collection.
As well as a chandelier (photos to come), and two pretty silver trays---the round one is for me and the rectangle one was a surprise for my daughter who had to work while we thrifted.
I'm so excited to show you what we did with many of treasures we found.

I can't wait to see how you decorate with all the treasures. What fun to help both girls decorate in their homes. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.♥

Louisville ky here... We have one, but it's not too close to me. That is good and bad!
I asked once "where does all this come from"
They responded "Charities that call for your donations, we buy it by the truckload from them."
Our Unique is 25% off on Mondays, and 50% off on Holiday Mondays!
Good Stuff you got there! Glad you got such good buys!

I love to go thrifting! I get some of the best stuff that way. And, it's a great source for makeover pieces, too!

Love your blog:0) ..Looks like so much fun! I wish I had such a cool place around here...but our thrift stores are pretty much just full of junk lol .Great finds though! I'm looking forward to seeing your chandelier.. Have a great weekend!

Kari @ Ucreate said...

Wish they had one near me!! I would be in HEAVEN!

I'm looking forward to seeing how you use the pieces. We are in serious need of some cool thrift stores around us. The one in our town is so small and anything interesting gets entered in an ongoing silent auction. I'd rather pay a bit more up front if I like something, than wait only to find out someone outbid me.

Great finds.. gotta love a great thift store.

Rachel said...

Oh, where is this place? I've yet to find a good thrift store within 4 hrs of my home (I know that there have to be some, but I just haven't found them). I do know that there aren't any *close* (less than an hour).

I'm in OK, btw--so if anyone knows of decent thrift stores in the southern half of OK, I'd appreciate the heads up!

Where is that thrift store?

Thrifty Miss Priss said...

this looks JUST like the one I go to...is it in VA? If you go on holidays everything is 50% off! It's a madhouse but worth it. On Labor day I got there at 8:45 and was no. 200 in line. There were still lots of great things to find by the time I got in!
