This past weekend was a fruitful one, as I accomplished the few tasks I shared with you all on Friday, and managed to have a wonderful time thrifting, too!
Undaunted by the dreary weather on Saturday, Adam and I drove to the Impact Thrift Store in Norristown, a western suburb of Philly. We'd been there just before moving into our current apartment about two years ago, and figured it was worth another visit. Boy, was it!
This fab chair greeted us at the store's entrance. Honestly, sharing these pictures is making me want to kick myself for not picking this one up...imagine it in some peppy color...
It was $15!
This beauty was $30 and had there not been a piece of missing veneer, it would have accompanied us back to our apartment. Glass knobs! OMG!
This pair of matching bamboo nightstands were for sale, along with a mirrored dresser. The mind reels...so much could be done with this set.
An immaculate mid-century sideboard is the type of piece that would sell for thousands in Manhattan. At Impact, it was a few hundred dollars. I love the contrasting white round knobs!
A tall cabinet with more bamboo detailing. It was around $50.
and up close:
This sofa stopped me in my tracks...isn't it reminiscent of a George Sherlock sofa? It was pristine, and only $800 (freshly cleaned, too).
$5 chrome task lamp, anyone?
So now that I've whetted your appetite, here's what we stuffed into our car: a 4-drawer desk in a tragic mustard color that will become our new dining room sideboard.
The best part?
It was $20!
This "before and after" is going to be epic--just you wait!
Oh, and these old copies of Martha Stewart Living mags joined the sideboard...$1.75 for all 5.
I love me some Martha!
There are 2 more Impact Thrift Store locations in the surrounding Philly suburbs and you know I'll be checking them out very, very soon. I'm so excited to share with you my revamped sideboard and my kitchen/dining area, which I've never shown!
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
