Fun Fall Thrift Store Finds...

Thrift stores are some of the best places for inexpensive seasonal decor finds!  Last week, I picked up a few items for our home.  Faux pumpkins are something I'm always looking for, and I want to try re-doing some with chalk paint.  But I thought this one was perfect just as found...love the stem...


And there was this great wreath from Target's Threshold decor line, too.  Wonderful oak leaves and acorns...



I found this frame, perfect for fall, decorated with carved oak leaves.  A visit to The Graphics Fairy found this wonderful 1828 primitive squirrel print, perfect for framing.  Always check the frame section of the thrift stores...you can save a lot of money!




My favorite find of the day, though, was this painting.  It called out to me across the store...I love the naive style and strong colors...



It may end up as part of our gallery wall...but for now I am enjoying it on it's own, in our sunporch...


Have you found any fun finds for fall?
Until next time...

  4. Great finds, Linda! Yes, I' cannot deny I've found some things, but darn it, I am trying to purge this weekend, hoping that community yard sale is not canceled (this is the 2nd rain date). My car is packed and ready to go either to the yard sale or drop off center!

  11. What a cute primitive painting. It reminds me Grandma Moses. I always pick up frames, too. They are usually very reasonable....Cute pumpkin and wreath, too! Have a great night- xo Diana

  17. All the faux pumpkins I found this year came cheap from the antique mall. I think the highest one was $2.

  18. YES, and they were with
    you, yesterday : ) !! I got
    my BIG anter for the dining
    table and the wooden Globe
    cheese box for my son's
    bookshelf. Both look great
    in their new home! And I
    can't wait to see how my
    little niece likes the first
    vintage dog in the collection
    that I'm starting her on....

    Love all of your finds. So
    blessed to do some "happy
    hunting" with you!!!

  25. Great Finds! I love the carved frame - it's gorgeous. I really need to get myself to the thrift store, I have been putting it off for way to long.

  26. I am trying to stay out of thrift stores as much as possible because there is absolutely nothing I need! I've been taking bags of stuff to thrift stores to donate instead. Though the things you just found are fantastic and I probably wouldn't be able to pass them up either! I especially love the wreath and the painting.

  27. You found some great things at the thrift store. Good idea to look for frames there. They can always be painted if they don't match your decor. Love the squirrel in the cute wooden frame.

  28. You find the best things at your thrift stores, Linda! I love the sweet carved frame and the print you added inside. And the painting is perfect for your sun porch! Our thrift store is relocating, so they'll be closed for a month.
