Some Of The Things I Find In Thrift Stores

Wonder why I peruse the thrift stores? 
There are a couple of reasons.
1) I am frugal
2) You never know what you will find

Such as this art.
Was it made with a face mold? or someone's actual face?
Yuk....who wants that slimy stuff on their face???
It looks like torn stips of fabric were used...or paper? I think an old sheet would do.
It's a nice deep shadow box frame. 

Here's an interesting, huge, carved wooden coffee table.

Only $400,probably worth it. 
I wonder where it came from.

These table skirts were manufactured at my former place of employment. I quit that factory in 1990 when I moved and got remarried.

Nope, I did not buy any of the above items.

Do you find interesting things when you're thrifting?


  1. I love looking around thrift shops. Lately I've been donating rather than buying - preparing for a move. I "must" make myself abide by the "one thing in, one thing out" motto. I've accumulated way too much stuff.

  2. Those are quite interesting and different. Today I found something that really surprised me. Check out my post today...I'm sharing.
