It goes on and on for as far as the eye can see, and it is a full-fledged treasure hunt! Naturally, I love going to Canton.
So, what did we buy?!
The husband spotted this 1950s GE fan and decided he'd like to restore it to its former glory. I loved the color and vintage appeal, so I gave him the thumbs up on this purchase– $15.
Also around this time I bought three big burlap coffee sacks (3/$5). Totally forgot to take a picture, but they are very cute! I'm thinking I'll use them for a Christmas tree skirt DIY project or possibly upholster an ottoman. We shall see...
Then we found these classic white ice skates for $10. I was so excited because I have been looking for some like this since last fall, and this price was the best I had seen. The best part is they are my size, so I guess I could take them to the Galleria Mall and whip out some triple axels!
My plan for these skates is to create something like this adorable Christmas wreath.
Then I fell in love with the half-gallon aqua mason jars, so I had to buy one of those– $10. I can't wait to fill it with pink flowers!
But this rug is my favorite thing. I love it! I have wanted a cowhide rug for a long time, and it was amazing to find a real one with such soft tones that will go with any color scheme. As soon as I laid it on the floor, the nuggets immediately got attached. Just the day before I had seen a similar one at a vintage store in Dallas for $250, so I was pretty happy when I got this one for $140. They cost $200 at Ikea but are only available in brown and white, and I like this one's colors so much better! Yay!
Rory tried to blend in, of course. "Mom, can you see me?!"
Have you found anything cool lately? Do tell!
