Fabgrandpa and I decided that we needed a corner cabinet to put by the sofa in the living room. So, we did what we usually do when we are looking for a particular piece of furniture. We went thrifting!
We stopped by our favorite place, The Pea Patch in Tallapoosa, Georgia, but they did not have anything that would work for us the day we were there. The next stop was Apple Barrel Antiques in Bremen, Georgia. We have been to this place numerous times, and have bought things in there before.
This day, we found the corner cabinet we were looking for. It is a little black cabinet, with built in bookends. It is rather small, but fits the space we had. It will give us a place to put some photos out, something we haven’t done yet. I think it was a steal at $32.
I also picked up a jar of bobbins, all filled with black thread. That is something you rarely see in a thrift shop. Maybe spent too much, but I am a sewing freak. $20
The last thing I bought there was a McCall’s Needlework & Crafts Magazine from 1962. The cover is so classic 1960’s, with the model wearing a sleek red knit pant suit, red flats, with a huge bow in her pouffy hairdo. I could not walk out of the store without it. A real treasure at $1.49
What did you thrift this week?
