GUEST ROOM QUILT, THRIFT STORE FIND


Found this awesome quilt (new but 'looks' old) at a thrift store.  It had never even been used, still in original package with tags still attached.  We took it out to the farm and put it on the guest room bed and it looks perfect.  It has the colors of the room and some flowers to boot, all wrapped up into one great looking quilt.  Best of all?  $12.00!
I love finding stuff like this.  It's fun to be frugal!

So pretty! And perfect for the guest room. It goes so well with the decor you have in there. Can you please come decorate our house?? LOL

Very nice. I never can pull off a pretty bedroom. I just do not have any kind of natural style, I guess :(

You'd pay £70 for that here! Nice find!

I LOVE thrift store shopping, and I so enjoy seeing what other folks find.
I'm a regular at a thrift store that has 50% off for seniors on Wednesdays. This week I got a beautiful twin size lacey hand crocheted afghan for $3. They don't even ask me if I'm a senior (I am). That could be depressing, but the thrill of the savings makes up for it.
Happy Hunting, and keep sharing.

Love the colors. Why does everyone else find the good stuff? I guess I need to shop more often.

It really did seem like it was meant to be, ha. thank you for that. Hey, I'm betting your place is just fine!

1st Man said...

Aww, thanks. Please, I wouldn't say we have a natural style, we're just lucky that we're starting with nothing and can make it all match as we get it/find it, ha.

We're lucky with all the thrift stores here in the states. Although sometimes I think they're still too expensive, ha. Hope you're feeling better!

Isn't it fun? And me too, I love seeing a blog where someone else finds something and I go "wow, I would have loved to have found that!" Down here, they do have some days where they put certain things on 50% off for everyone, like maybe 50% all housewares, or 50% off blankets and linens, things like that. I'm not sure what the senior cut off is but I'll be there soon enough, ha.

I'll keep sharing and definitely keep hunting, ha

You know they are constantly putting out stuff. I could go everyday and find something new but I just have to control myself and I only go once or twice a week. Keep hunting, you'll find something!!
