Second-hand Finds

We spend a lot of time going to yard sales, thrift stores, and flea markets to search for furniture and goodies. As a result, we've furnished our townhouse almost entirely with second-hand furniture. Here are a few things we recently picked up.

Above is a green depression glass vase that we bought at a yard sale for $1 (the flowers are from the local farmers' market!). Below is our vintage bar cart that we picked up at the Alameda Flea Market for $20:
We found this brass piano lamp on Craiglist for $15. Today we saw a really similar one at Homegoods for $150!
 This brand new World Market basket was at Goodwill for $1. The tags were still attached. Score!
Finally, this green storage cube from Goodwill recently joined the Turner-Puente household. It's the perfect place to stash blankets and computer cords to reduce clutter.

You and me both!! Love thrift store finds/antiques/hand-me-downs. I've become really into painting furniture lately, and discovered the most amazing way to make it look so professional and perfect! Let me know if you ever need some tips and I'll share my secrets :)
