My favorite local shop, Green Living Resale, has been talking up their warehouse sale for several weeks, and I’ve been excited to go! Three out of five kids are at the beach with my mom and stepdad, so the hubby and I took two kids with us to see what goodies we could find at the shop and the warehouse.
I’m helping my best friend with the centerpiece for one of the tables for our church’s Women’s Ministry brunch next weekend, so I’ve been keeping an eye out for terrariums and other decorative jars, and they had one in the shop!
It’s the tall one on the right. The other two I picked up at Marshall’s, which is definitely in my top 3 favorite stores.
Over to the warehouse, we looked at furniture, lamps, pictures, frames, books, beds, and I didn’t see anything I could justify bringing home right now. Until I saw this:
My husband has faith in my upcycling and refinishing capabilities, but apparently this was too far gone for him.
Which is why I never bring him with me when I want to buy something. He appreciates the afters and goes along with the befores, but it’s bringing them home that he’s not always on board with. For $25, I felt like I got a steal of a deal.
I’m excited to show you what I have planned for the desk! I have a date with a can of CeCe Caldwell paint!
My husband picked up items and put them back down, like an old photo of the original courthouse here in our city, and seriously contemplated a Charlie Chaplin lamp, which gave me an internal freak out, wondering where in the world I could put such a thing to both show it off and not totally clash with the house. He decided he didn’t know where he’d want it, so it stayed at the shop. I did seriously think about how I could work that lamp in. And I did seriously breathe an internal sigh of relief that I didn’t have to figure it out.
Did you have any Shop Local Saturday successes?
