Thrifting Queen

Check out my new stash!  Ok, I may not be the queen of thrifting yet, but I think this last trip at least gets me duchess or princess status or something.  

This rocking chair is absolutely adorable.  The chippy yellow paint is perfect.  I will just change out the seat fabric and it will be ready to go. 

This coral polkadot dress is so vintage chic!  I feel like I should wear it to a derby party or something... with pearls.

I know the sled is a little off season but it was way to cool to pass up.  I figure I can hold on to it for Christmas.

The cherry on top of all of this junk is this beauty!  I can't wait to paint it white and clean up the cushions.  It is FABULOUS!

Guess how much I paid for this chair... go ahead and guess.

$1.99!  It is so cute with the chippy white paint.  It is solid as a rock too.  SCORE!

Oh, and this little scarf and hat made me happy.  Who doesn't need a hot pink sun hat right?  

The ARC by my house is probably the best thrift store EVER.  I never walk out empty handed or disappointed.  So that's it for the latest episode of my thrifting adventures. 

Keeping It Simple


  1. Hey, love the rocking chair. Did you know that it's a sewing rocker? There are no arms on the rocker because they get in the way and it's harder to hand sew. I have an antique one that my in-laws gave me and love it. Otherwise I'd be begging for yours :-0 Hope you enjoy it as much as I love mine!

  2. I seriously want to drive to Colorado and buy that rocking chair! Did you get a good enough bargain that my travel expenses from TN will factor in and still make it a good deal? JK! I LOVE a thrifting high! Enjoy it!
