Last week I decided to travel over a couple of towns to do some thrifting. I called my buddy Cathy to ask her if she’d like to tag along. We spent the entire day climbing in and out of a big ole pickup truck I borrowed. I’m too old and Cathy’s too short. It wore us out!
Our first stop was at the Shoppes at Otter Creek. I should have taken a picture of the building, but I was in a hurry to get inside. It’s a very nice shop, with 150 artisans represented. My niece Marie sells some of her items there. I didn’t take any pictures inside—I didn’t see a posted sign, but I assumed it wasn’t allowed. You can check out the Shoppes at Otter Creek on Facebook.
After we left Brandenburg, we headed toward Radcliffe and Elizabethtown. To give you a reference point, they are near Ft. Knox KY.
My favorite stop on our trip was the Hardin County Habitat ReStore. This little sign caught my eye! Show off a repurpose? moi?
Look at this selection of old t.v.’s.
This ReStore isn’t like the ones in Louisville. Oh my… I spy that table right there…I didn’t see it while at the store. So, as I was saying, this store reminds me more of a Goodwill. There were many items there that I don’t see at my regular ReStores. I like the nice selection of goods.
It was sort of difficult to get pics without any volunteers in them. There were so many people working on this day, and they were ALL very friendly and helpful.
They had 2 pianos.
Can you guess what I bought from the above pics?
Here ya go….
The funny little console table on the right was $15, and the nice lady said the t.v. was $10. When Cathy asked how much for both, she said $15. Deal of the day! I was so happy that I borrowed a truck for the day.
I’ve been looking for a t.v. like this for a long time. Our thrift stores never have them… and if they did, they would be much more money.
Another deal of the day! Bunk bed(s) for $9
Not one, but two – that’s only $2.25 for each piece. They will make an easy bench, but the bench may need to be a kid’s bench or a doll bench. The seat height can be brought up to adult size, but the back would be low. We’ll see.
I picked this up at the Peddler’s Mall in E’town. It was a huge place, but we didn’t find much there.
This was the goof of the day. This was only $2, and I liked the detail of the frame. However when I got home and took the artwork out, the fuzzy mat is a permanent part of the frame. boooo
You know I can’t pass up a good deal on a cabinet door. I like the fun shapes of these.
On Sunday, this desk was delivered to me FREE. I think I’ll use this as a portable work station in the shop.
A Big thanks to my friend Nova for supplying me with a great list of places to shop. We didn’t get to every shop on the list, but then again, that gives us another reason to go back soon! When I go back, I will be taking a load of donated goods. Such a great cause, happy to have found a place to “re-home” my unwanted items!
