Thrill of the Hunt #140

January 19, 2024

Welcome, friends, to another fun-filled Thrill of the Hunt post where I share my latest thrifty (and usually) vintage finds with you.

I also share how I use and style the finds in my home. I hope that by sharing my thrifty finds I can motivate and inspire you to explore your own local thrift stores, estate sales, flea markets, barn sales and clearance aisles in the hopes of making your own fabulous finds for yourself. So let's get started.

thrifted gilded baroque mirror

I picked up this gorgeous oval gilded baroque mirror at Goodwill for $3.99.

And while I didn't necessarily need another gilded mirror, I fell in love with it.

The detail is exquisite, and I can see it fitting in with so many of my other timeless thrift store decor pieces.

fall octagonal plate

I was thrilled to find this octagonal plate at Goodwill for $2.99. 

Nikko plate and brown splatterware sugar and creamer

The burnt orange and white pattern (like bittersweet) spoke to me of fall. Just like my vintage brown and white splatterware sugar and creamer set I first shared in Thrill of the Hunt #126.

Nikko Classic Collection makers mark octagonal plate

It's part of the (fittingly named) Bittersweet Pattern Nikko Classic Collection, made in Japan.

While it cost a bit more than I'm used to spending for a single thrifted item I had to pick up this white French country table lamp base for $6.99.

The lines and ornate details instantly drew me in.

While I've been known to turn lamps into candleholders, How To Turn a Table Lamp Into a Pillar Candle Holder, I think I'll use this one the traditional way! 

Well, that's it for today, friends!

What a nice mirror. I have not been on a thrift find for awhile. I hope to do one soon.

I love the mirror score!!! OMG about that table lamp base. I would have fought you for that if I were shopping with you. That is a SCORE even at $6.99. Great treasures. Hugs. Kris

It's good thing we can't thift together as we like a lot of the same styles! I love mirrors--even though I don't have a good place for any more!
