Yes, the title is true. I actually walked out of a thrift store this weekend with just one item. I'm pretty sure this has never happened before -- at least not since I opened my shop and gave myself permission to bring home anything fabulous and vintage that my heart desired. I'm not gonna lie; I was proud of myself. I didn't even need a shopping bag!
My lucky find was an old brass coat rack with...that's right...a faux bamboo shape! My two favorite things: faux bamboo and brass, all in one handy package.
I walked by this beauty twice before I really absorbed what I was looking at. I think I decided to ignore it at first because it's too big to ship affordably, so I couldn't sell it in my shop. This happens sometimes: I forget I can actually buy things in thrift stores for myself. Then I came to my senses, noted the $7.99 price tag, and swooped it up!
My front door opens directly into my living room and I have no coat closet, so I don't know why it didn't dawn on me before to get a coat rack. I guess I just hadn't found one with the right vintage glam vibe until this one. ;) I sure hope there's a good spot for it when I'm done with my seemingly-neverending living room redo!
How about you? Any lucky thrift finds this week?
