I had the opportunity to go thrifting twice this month and both times I totally struck out when it came to clothing. HOWEVER, I didn’t strike out in all areas. The home goods sections totally spoiled me…
Fall-Colored Knit Blanket, $6
I 100% bought this blanket because it looks like one my grandma made for me many years ago. It’s the most wonderful assortment of fall colors and it practically jumped into my cart without me even thinking about it. It found a home on my living room couch, where it fits over both me and Jack for cuddling time while we watch She-Hulk on Thursday nights.
Handmade Quilt, $15
I paid up for this quilt, but it’s handmade and looks to be about queen-sized. Not all of the stitching is perfect, which adds to its charm for me. Unfortunately, I’m not quite sure where this one will end up in my house as I don’t have a spot for it at the moment. It may be added to Jack’s bedding set when the weather gets cooler. Or perhaps be added to my quilted nest of blankets out in the sun room.
1950’s Fire King Jadeite Bowl, $4
I recognized this adorable little 1950’s bowl immediately when I saw it shoved along assorted bowls on a shelf. It’s in perfect condition and went straight into the dishwasher when I got home. It’s now in heavy rotation at my house, as it’s the perfect size for a bowl of pretzels for snacking or salsa for sharing.
Yellow Crochet Blanket, $8
Yes, I know I have a problem. I just can’t resist handmade blankets. We’ve talked about this. It’s an ongoing personality problem. With that being said, I don’t regret this purchase at all. It’s a HUGE blanket and it’s already found a home in my sun room.
At some point, it may live on my bed because I love the intricate design and the mustard yellow color. Fully worth the $8 though!
Squares Crochet Blanket, $6
YES, it’s another blanket. And now I really do vow to try and skip the bedding section the next few times when I thrift. But look how there are so many different squares?! And LOOK how perfect it looks on my den couch!
But yes, my house is chock-full of snuggle blankets. In fact, I can invite all of my favorite people over and have a snuggle blanket to share with every single one of them.
One thought on “September Thrift Haul”
I love blankets! I buy one for myself, and another for my hubby. He looks longingly at mine, so gave him one for Christmas. You picked out some good ones. Your crochet blankets look similar to ones my mom had, when I was a kid. I loved those. They last forever! You are giving all of these blankies a second life!
