I haven't been thrifting in WEEKS and though today's trip was a bust, it was super entertaining. . .
(be warned there are a lot of pictures and they were all taken with my camera phone)
I started at an antique mall that I've never been to before. It definitely had some interesting items.
Also there was a Dukes of Hazard lunchbox (with thermos)! Unfortunately, it was WAY out of my price range. I also spotted a ceramic piece that was shaped like an old phone and glazed all one color so it looked like the phone had boobs on the front instead of bells...but maybe that was just me. I'm sorry that I don't have pictures of those, but I'm having trouble getting all my pictures to upload. :(
After a few other stops, I landed at one of my favorite (and largest) thrift stores. From time to time they have some really interesting items. Like this one
As I headed up the road toward a few more store, I spotted this guy (I apologize for the windshield grime)
Really, you should live in my head. Crazy stuff like that flies through it all the time. sigh.
One of my last stops of the day was The Plunderosa in Loxley, AL. I've been visiting this place for YEARS. Although, my last visit was many, many moons ago. Not much has changed. After so much disappointment at my other stops, I think I was feeling a little punchy. Come with me on my walk through the Plunderosa.
There were all kinds of unusual tools and neat textures. Like this pile of sickles
This beautiful armoire caught my eye. But, then I realized there was something weird about it. Can you guess what that is?
That's right, it's actually a CONFESSIONAL!! Check out the inside!
They have rows and rows of old wardrobes there.
As well, there's all kinds of architectural pieces. The carved door caught my eye, but I really adore the mustard yellow one behind it. . . with the lacy curtain still in the window!!
I finally meandered home to upload the pictures and share this experience with you. Getting the pictures transferred over took me FOREVER for some reason. Please tell me it was worth it!
Oh, and though I didn't find any treasures out thrift hunting, I discovered that not one but TWO pairs of my earrings were featured in this vibrant treasury.
Though I came home empty handed, at least I had plenty of stories to share! I hope you enjoyed it!
