April Thrift Haul

Today’s thrift haul is extra fun, since it includes thrifting from our spring break trip to Tucson, Arizona as well as closer-to-home finds!

We had a rainy day in Tucson, so we decided to stop by the local Savers to see if we could find any treasures. I love thrifting while on vacation – you get awesome souvenirs that remind you of your trip, it’s less expensive than the local stores, and you find some super cool items.

First up, two items thrifted by my husband:

  • Steel City Cycles t-shirt, $6.49
  • American Red Cross long sleeve shirt with hood, $13.49

My husband will very occasionally come with me on my thrifting hunts, but has less patience for looking through every dang thing in the store to find some winners. He was graciously keeping busy (and keeping Jack busy) while I had my thrifting fun and ended up finding two shirts that he loved. Both are in great condition, super soft, and his size… so he’s pretty happy with himself!

Jack also found a couple fun items – a cool assortment of fidgets (including a rainbow pop-it keyboard that is super snazzy) and a TrueBalance game. I forgot to take photos of them though.

Okay, on to my finds!

  • Universal Threads V-neck T-Shirt, $2.79
  • Old Navy fern top, $11.99

Quite the price range with these two tops and there was really no rhyme or reason with the pricing at the Savers we went to. I have a couple Universal Threads t-shirts that hold up pretty well, so I figured I’d grab this one for less than $3. As for the flowy fern top, I really like the cap sleeves and the pattern. You can see it paired with a skirt here.

  • Don’t Be a Salty Heifer t-shirt, $5.99
  • Vintage skirt, $8.29

Did this shirt make me laugh out loud in the store? Yes. Do these two items look awfully cute paired together? Also, yes! I love the colors and message of this fun t-shirt and will absolutely be adding it into my weekend rotation. The vintage skirt is also super flowy and cute and I love it so much. Love them both and they are currently hanging next to each other in my closet for the next warm weekend day!

  • Handmade pottery tray with handle, $6.49

You guys know that I love a beautiful handmade pottery piece and I couldn’t resist this one and was determined to fit it into our suitcase to come back home. It is pretty large — about plate sized — and beautifully done. I currently have it next to my reading spot in the den to corral miscellaneous stuff.

Once we were back in Maryland, I was able to do a little thrift store visiting later in the month. I surprisingly found more luck in the homegoods section than the clothing.

  • Jeannette Cube Pink Depression Glass Sugar Bowl, $7.99

This adorable pink Depression Glass sugar bowl is the Jeannette Cube design, which was produced between 1929 – 1933. I love vintage pink glass, and the cube design is so beautiful in person so I had to scoop it up.

  • Birds Outdoor Pillow, $4.49

According to Google Images, this outdoor pillow is from Plow & Hearth and cost $25 new. I just really like the colors and design and it’s in super great shape, so I plopped it right on the chair on my front porch and it’s living there quite happily.

  • Ceramic ‘egg crate’ jewelry dish, $5.99

I really like this pretty green ceramic dish with the gold accents. After looking at it closely and seeing no marks on the bottom, I think someone made this by hand (perhaps at one of those paint-your-own pottery places, if they have gold filigree to work with?). However, it also looks like some I found at Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters, so who knows where it came from. I added it to my jewelry area and it looks adorable next to my vintage jade hand.

  • Leather braided belt, $3.49

I’ve been casually looking for a new braided leather belt since the one I’ve been wearing for 20+ years is starting to look a little sad. This one is a little thinner than the one I’m planning to replace, but I’m working it into my rotation to see if it’s a keeper.

  • Line of Oslo blouse, $5.99

I found this pretty blouse/tunic/swim coverup/dress-like thing hanging with the dresses at the thrift store and love the gauzy material and the pretty silver accents. However, I don’t really wear much/any white, so I bought it with the intention of dying it a different color. Upon googling, I found that Line of Oslo is a brand from Norway, which is a long, long way from Maryland. A little dip in a purple dye bath and I love the way this turned out.
