Craigslist, Goodwill, Freecycle...Oh my!

Haggling aside, I absolutely heart thrifting.  I am addicted to craigslist, goodwill and yard sales, but my most beloved of all is freecycle.  Why?  The stuff is straight up free.  I love finding unique treasures and bringing them home to my exasperated husband just to hear him ask, "now, where the heck are you going to put that?"  Luckily, he's the most frugal guy in the world so when I tell him it was free his protests typically end.

Here are some photos of my most recent scores. The can on the left is a vintage 50 lb. Armour Star lard container. 50 LBS!  Yikes, that's a lot of lard.

Lard container & large basket from flea market

Plastic play table, small lantern  & embroidered linen

Nantucket Maple Buffet/Hutch for $30?  Score!

How about you?  Where do you love to thrift and what's your most memorable find?



  1. That lamp is cute! I also love the hutch. Where are you going to put it?

  2. I think you can blame me for your addiction. I think it all started when I took you to that vintage clothing store in Hood River and you found that pink furry coat and the pink flowered muumuu.
