I don’t often reserve certain days for activities, unless that day is Saturday. Almost every Saturday morning (unless I’m at work or out of town) I’m up early and out the door to hit up my favorite thrift stores and flea markets.
I don’t always find treasures.
But when I do, I find the best treasures.
A recent trip through Missouri resulted in this gorgeous piece above.
It also produced this McCoy planter. I didn’t know it was a McCoy. I just knew it was a sheep. I like sheep. It was also a planter. I like planters. It wasn’t until I brought it home that I discovered the McCoy marking.
It wasn’t in the usual place and had it been, I’m sure the seller would have wanted much more.
It’s my persistent hunt for treasures that results in great and unique finds. That’s the trick with thrifting. Do it often. Your hard work will reward you.
Just don’t do it around here. I’ve claimed this territory.
What’s your favorite thrifted find? I think mine is the McCoy above.
