August Finds

Sometimes you walk to breakfast, eat some French toast and turkey bacon, stop at a local odds and ends shop, and end up finding two Indiana Jones framed photos on the way home. And these are the mornings I live for.

All kidding aside, I have some kind of deep-seeded crush on Indiana Jones. And now I have a framed photo of him hanging in our downstairs bathroom (where I just did a washi tape wall treatment) and another that hasn't quite found a home yet. Just needed some new frames...

Tim also picked up some records from the dollar bin! Good day all in all.

This Weekend's Finds

It's been a pretty long while since I've found anything decent out thrifting. I went out when we were down the shore and everything just seemed to be over priced and just not perfect. To limit myself, I've been running through a list in my head when I find something I may want. 

  • Is the price good?
  • What do I plan to do with it? Use it? Display it? Revamp it?
  • Would I be able to find this somewhere else cheaper down the line?

This was the first weekend that T&I were home with little plans since we moved in. I knew I wanted to travel over to the Columbus Flea market in New Jersey and we found this indoor flea market literally across the street from our apartment. That's probably going to end poorly...

These little beauties made the cut for this weekend. A vintage thermos, which plans to live on top of our high cabinets, came from the indoor flea market across the street along with that vintage floral sheet in the background. The little Pyrex bowl matches the other bowl I have and seemed like a good size for veggies and side dishes. The wooden typeset numbers are our apartment number and I'm in love with them. Everything was really pretty affordable. 

These are what T ended up finding. In the hopes of building our record collection, he has started looking at records when I drag him along to flea markets and thrift stores. It's actually pretty exciting for me because he has something to look at now and it doesn't make me feel so bad making him go with me. He was a good sport all weekend. 

Find anything good lately? I'd love to see!

Finds were found at Columbus Flea Market & The All Things Shoppe.
