I absolutely love thrift stores. While some people see them as a junk store filled with other people’s useless castoffs, I see it as a treasure hunt. One man’s trash really is another person’s treasure.
I love to shop resale stores and thrift stores to find gently used clothes for my family, but I also love finding unique treasures and projects. Recently, I’ve been on an ironstone kick. I love how it looks but I don’t love the price. You can fake it fairly easily.
I spotted this Christmas planter not long after I arrived at the store. I loved the size and shape of it.
I used two coats of antique white spray paint to make it look like ironstone and I loved how it turned out.
I also sprayed this pitcher to make it look like ironstone too.
If you’ve been a reader here for very long, you know a few things about me:
1. I love signs with quotes and verses
2. I have champagne taste on a tap water budget
3. I am addicted to the dollar stores.
Have you been to Dollar General lately? If you read my post about their fall decor, then you probably have already checked out their Christmas decor. If you haven’t, you should. It’s cute and cheap, which is how I like my decor.
These tree skirts are adorable and would look great with any farmhouse themed tree. You could easily remove the red snowflake from the first one if you wanted. And who doesn’t love red ticking stripe? Such a classic look.
This burlap stocking is so cute!
I love a cute Santa ornament and this fellow is rather unique with his dark outfit. There were several Santa’s.
These lanterns are beautiful and no one will ever know they are from a dollar store.
I bet you knew I’d put a red truck in here somewhere! Check out this advent calendar.
You know I love wood signs- here are three pretty ones.
And these big, old bells would be amazing on a wreath.
I hope you enjoyed these Christmas dollar store finds as much as I did! Have a wonderful Monday!
