Latest thrift store find: buttons!

Latest thriftstore find - Vintage buttons in jars

Ever since I was a little girl I really love buttons. When I was little my mother had a jar full of buttons that I loved to play with. Today I have jars of my own. One jar is unfortunately still missing after I moved in with my boyfriend last year. I don’t think I will ever have enough buttons. They are like a little addiction. They are so small and pretty… I just can’t have enough of them. Yesterday I found two jars filled with all kinds of vintage buttons at the thrift store. I just had to take them home with me. Aren’t they pretty?

Thrift store find: Pretty vintage cooking pans!

Thrift store find: Pretty vintage cooking pans!

Now that I’m moving into my new home I know that I’m going to use my fabulous vintage stove very soon. I’m really looking forward to that. I love baking and I haven’t been able to do some proper baking in over a year! But that lovely vintage stove can’t go without some vintage cooking pans. So I bought some at the thrift store. It makes me so happy when I look at these pans. They are so pretty and colorful! The best thing is I bought them for about ten Euro’s in total. A lot less then if I would buy new ones. And these vintage cooking pans are looking so much better then today’s cooking pans! What do you think of them? XOXO Wilma

Vintage find: fifties stove

vintage stove

I really wanted a vintage stove for my next home. I don’t own an oven right now and that is something I am really missing. I do own a combi microwave but it’s just not the same. Of course I could just have bought a new stove but a vintage stove is so much more special. I love the style and I love it when something has been used for so many years and still looks great. You can’t believe how lucky I felt when my mother told me about something my sister Janet found on the internet. This stove is just perfect! I know that if she could use it my sister would have bought it. But she can’t so I couldn’t resist buying it for myself. Sorry Janet!

Red vintage typewriter

Red vintage typewriter

I already own one vintage typewriter. I was searching for one a long time before I found this one. A few days ago I went to a thrift store and I found another one! For three Euro’s I couldn’t resist buying it. I love the red color of this type writer. It’s so pretty! Strange thing; sometimes you are looking for something and you can’t find it. Then when you finally found it you see the same thing everywhere. Sometimes you even find more beautiful items.

Have you ever found something you where looking for for a long time that you found a short period later again?

vintage typewriter thrift store find

It’s time for my latest thrift store finds! This time I went to my favorite thrift store and to a flea market. The flea market was really busy, to busy for my taste. And it was a big mess. It was raining outside and it looked like the tent was build when it was already raining. There were big pools of water everywhere, inside and outside the tent. But we found some great items, so in the end it was worth it. My favorite item? The vintage typewriter pictured above. I really wanted one and I finally found one! And for just 3 Euro’s!

You might already know that I absolutely love thrift shopping. It’s a great feeling to find something unique for just a few bucks. I also think that thrift store finds are making your home more unique and more you. It gives your interior personality! Today I want to share my all time favorite thrift store with you. As you can see it’s a big mess and that is just the way I like it! Sometimes you find real treasures hidden between the junk, and sometimes it’s just junk. But when you find something it’s rarely expensive and it’s always a great feeling to find something between the junk.

thrift store find alarm clock

I love visiting thrift stores. I never leave empty handed, there is always something I just need to have. Well, at least that is what I think the moment I buy it. But hey, it’s so damn cheap. Who can blame me? Today I wanted to show you some of my latest finds.

The picture above is a vintage alarm clock I bought for two Euro’s. My boyfriend found it. I love the style of the clock and it’s in perfect working condition. Only problem is; we don’t have a working socket in our bedroom at the moment. Don’t know why it doesn’t work and I’m not really into fixing it. So we save this find (and our nightlights) for our next home.
