{Thrify finds}

If you've ever read my sisters blog (which I am sure all of you have), she and I (and a few of our closest friends) are constantly on the hunt for great deals on awesome vintage/collectible goods. Ali and I along with our friend Kristin of WESTon Cole (**If you haven't already, you should check out her blog! She is one of the most stylish people I know!!!!) are working on getting a booth at our local Irvine Antiques and Collectibles show sometime in the next few months (perhaps July), so we have all had our eagle eyes open, looking for steals of deals! So far, we each have some pretty awesome pieces to sell. We want our booth to be an eclectic mix of furniture (vintage, refurbished, shabby chic, mid-century modern, etc.) and home decor. We will be selling a lot of "new" treasures that we have found lately while out and about at thrift stores and estate sales, but we will also incorporate some things that we have loved for years but are ready to pass on to the next lucky shoppers!

Here are some of the "new" items that I have recently "popped" on......

**A high-back winged toile chair in MINT condition ($75)
{A little spendy, I know, but worth every penny!! It is SUPER comfortable!}

**A beautiful cheese dome ($4)

**A pretty milk-glass hobnail vase ($4)

**A beautiful wood/silver {jewelry?} box ($5)

**A Queen Anne occasional chair ($12)
{which I am planning to paint and reupholster}

**And these adorable hot air balloon art prints ($6 for the pair)

I have a ton of other things that I plan to sell that I am currently working on (a coffee table, french-style nightstands, a desk chair, etc.) so I am glad that we have a little more time to get ready! Our booth will be filled with some awesome things!! We are getting so excited for what is to come and have been loving shopping for the thrifty finds in the meantime!

Happy weekend!
