    WOW no wonder you spent $60. How could anyone walk away without getting those?! What a bargain. xx

    That is a lot for sixty dollars. I especially love the necklace and earrings.

    You SCORED!!!

    I love Sally’s!

    I just got back and I spendt $58.00. The entire store was half off except collectables. I bought three huge gorgeous pictures for the bedroom, two pairs of jeans, about six tops, some plates and candlesticks for a project I’m working on, a brand new box of kitchen utensils, a tray for a project, a Kosta Boda snowball candleholder, a brand new in box set of dessert plates, a mixing bowl, two hats, a tall pottery barn type candle holder and some other things I can’t think of at the moment.

    Thrifting rocks but it’s not for the faint hearted. Some woman tried to take those picturs right out from under my nose. Where I live the prices at the Goodwill have gone sky high but Sally’s is still low plus they usually have half off sales on Saturday’s.

    Amazing finds Maegan! I wish the thrift shops near me had nearly as good quality stuff as you found. I’m in awe of the vintage seahorse set. I love everything, great work!!

    Holy crap! I so want those seahorse goodies (my three year old nieces would be so impressed–we’re a little seahorse crazy as of late).

    Those crystal decanters are to die for! Esp love the seahorse jewelry, can’t wait to see what you wear with them!

    I remember my mom having a crystal decanter like that one. I used to use the top stopper as a microphone when I was little. I can also vaguely remember standing on the brick hearth and singing (probably something from Annie). I think if she still had it I’d STILL use it as a microphone (and probably still sing something from Annie–classics never die – lol).

    Great finds!!

    What a great haul! Thrift stores are one of the best places to spend a Saturday (in my opinion) and it looks like you found some incredible pieces. I look forward to seeing them all styled up in future posts!
