Taking a break from Feature Friday, I thought I share this with ya’ll! Stopping by Sally Ann’s once again, everything that I showed you in the last visit by here was gone and in its place, all different stuff. Amazing the turnover in these thriftstores. So let’s see some promising items in this trip:
Cute, cute Grandma chair was $50. Now to be honest, it wasn’t very comfortable, it had springs in the back and seat that were long gone, so some work would need to be done to make it really a cozy chair, but oh the lines on this beauty. Don’t you agree?
I can totally see this dining room set painted up and brought to life again. New fabric, paint and wow, what a difference that would make. This set for all these pieces was $400, really not bad at all if you were looking for a fixer upper.
Check out the details on the table apron. Darling!
Cute little stool for $20, another great candidate for an update.
Do you remember THIS pattern from over 10 years ago, I think Waverly Queensland, isn’t that right? I saw this fabric on SO many sofas and family rooms back then. It was a pretty fabric, but I wouldn’t want to have to decorate around it for very long. That’s why I stick with neutrals on a sofa. No regrets! Speaking of neutral sofas….
Now this was a deal. Ethan Allen sofa for $200, covered in a pretty linen like fabric and in really great shape. I used to work for Ethan Allen, so know their prices well and believe me, that was a steal. Someone was in there after I was and it was already snagged within days of me taking this pic and I’m totally not surprised.
Someone got a great deal!
This cute coffee table at $20 would be so cute painted white and spruced up. It’s just begging to be saved.
This fairly large framed print for $3, in a nicely detailed frame would make a fab chalkboard, I thought. Just spray right over that old pic, which wasn’t anything special. I didn’t even mind the color, although it could easily be changed too.
So, that’s some of the bargains I saw at Sally Ann’s last time I was there. I’m sure next time I go in, all of these treasures will be gone and there will be a whole slew of new things in for the taking.
