Finds.

It’s a treat to be talking about a new thrift store opening instead of one closing. Find: Furnishing Hope is part of a charity that provides furniture to people transitioning out of homelessness. They also sell donated furniture from their store.

The huge space, formerly a grocery store, is filled with furniture.

Aisles and aisles of furniture at very low cost.

This is definitely the place to go when you want to furnish your house in 80s style, or buy IKEA shevles that are already assembled.

Here’s a one-of-a-kind piece.

I don’t think I captured the awesomeness of this 70s stereo (with reel-to-reel tape deck) in this picture. Note the mirrored plinth.

Thomas organ ($50, I think).

Singer sewing machine ($75)

Besides furniture, there are also housewares, books, records, videos, electronics and all the obsolete TVs you could want.

Store hours are limited – it’s only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11 to 5.

This is where the real thrift bargain are this weekend (you can still go. Go! Go now!).

Books, toys, collectibles, clothing, linens, housewares, crafts, Christmas stuff, baking etc. at insane prices!

Can you spot the Anne Geddes “collectible”?

The Art of Belly Painting (“Everything you need to make your pregnancy a masterpiece”) $2.00.

Why are amateur painters so fond of mountains?

Breakfast: homemade lasagna and blueberry pie.

In homage to the great Yard Sale Bloodbath, here’s my trunk shot (though it’s pretty pointless, since everything’s in bags). Here’s what i bought:

A vintage Osterizer blender with steel base (!!) and glass pitcher. $2!!! A Pyrex loaf pan for 50¢!!! A Pyrex pie plate, also 50¢!!! And everything in immaculate condition. Insane!!! Why would anyone buy this stuff retail? (though someone has to so it can supply the thrift food chain).

  1. When I see set ups like that it just NEEDS to have some tiki in there..you would expect it. But of course..not 😦

    Still fun to check out. And that stereo system with the reel to reel is awesome!
