Look What I Dragged Home Now

February 08, 2013
I have to admit that thrifting has been rather slow since Christmas.  I think the extreme cold and abundance of snow here in Northern Minnesota have cut down on donations and consignments.

Here are some recent purchases:

It's an old high chair. I think it's oak.  No tray.  $10.  I am thinking it will go outside this summer.

An embroidered runner for $3.

A gold metal, I think vintage, Mary figurine. $3.

A white pitcher, made in Japan.  $4.  I kind of think a white pitcher is a mandatory prop in blogland.

Then came the frames... I think this is a cute little picture but I bought this for the frame.  $4.

I also purchased this vintage print for the frame.  $3.  The wood frame is awesome.  I may paint this.

Another great vintage easel frame and a vintage postcard inside.  $10.

I picked up this wood easel for $3.  I think I may paint this too.

I am going out again shopping again in few minutes.  Wish me luck!

  1. I can't tell how big that chair is but the first tha ame to mind was that it was a shoe shine chair. But if you think it is a igh chair it must be alot smaller. It is nice and solid.

  2. Carlene ~ you found some great treasures ~ Good luck today in your new treasure hunt. Can't wait to see what you find ~

  3. I'd say you had a successful excursion! I am loving that bird picture and red frame!

  4. Wow, Carlene, you got some great stuff! Love the high chair and especially the easel frame. Definitely the white pitcher is a blog mandatory...lol. I don't think I have any of the mandatory things like cloches, white ironstone, French grain sacks. Oh well. You find the coolest things!!

  5. Wow..I think you've done really well!
    I know about the cold and snow and the lack of thrifting.
    I really love that old high chair, and the price was wonderful!

  6. Carlene I think you have found some great items. Love those frames and yes I can see them painted. Love the old high chair, I have one that was my Mom's so it is over 80 years old!

  7. I have that frame! We were separated at birth.

  8. Great finds Carlene! I love the high chair! I think I'd keep it inside and use it for grandkids. :)

  9. I want to go shopping with you...what part of MN you from? I'm near Minneapolis. Great finds!

  10. You found some great goodies!! I haven't found anything here lately...hoping the pickings are better come Spring.
