a thrifting we will go

(Susanna Maaria Erkheikki)

It's been a couple of weeks since I've headed out on a thrifting mission to find goodies for my house but these pictures have reminded me that it's time to go on a hunt again. Hopefully I have as much luck as Daydream Lily did on her latest adventure!

What's your favourite thing to go thrifting for? I'm always on the look out for ornaments, photo frames, tea cups & china, tins and books.

  5. good luck on your thrifting! I might do some opshopping today too because I heard there's an opshop that's having a 50% off sale (yay!). I've been looking for a nice world globe for a while.

  9. I'm all about the clothes when I go thrifting, speed sifting through the racks at an unthinkable pace!

    Because my apartment is practically pocket sized, I have to stay away from pretty ceramics and tea sets as I simply son't have the room. I hope one day for a cottage that I can fill full of curios!

  15. In the Netherlands, there are lots and lots of thrift shops! You can find almost everything you're looking for! I'm actually searching a world map that I could hang on my wall. Good luck!
