I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving and had a gobblin’ good time! As for me, I totally enjoyed my time. I visited my family back home in New Jersey and after the big turkey day, while everyone was mall dashing,we spent our day thrifting. My sister had been telling me about a new spot (new to her) she stumbled on located in Hillside, NJ, it’s called Kathleen’s Closet. She has made this her go-to spot to check out the goodies. Well, if you’re ever in NJ, you may want to check out this spot. Here are the goodies I found while there.. This mid- century coffee table wasn’t a bad deal at $25.00 (I could imagine seeing this piece with a fresh coat of paint and shiney gold paint for the leg’s brass fixtures.
The rattan shelving units were $20.00 (I would remove the bottom doors because of the hole and replace with baskets). All in all, not bad a bad price!!!
This rattan table base was only $10.00 and was still sturdy. Although finding a glass top would be difficult, but in the meantime, I would use it as a plant stand, by placing several different pots and create one big display (and of course paint it)
Not my taste, but this plaid chair wasn’t a bad price either for $15.00- no holes, tears or stains.
Leather top side table $10.00 (can you believe this??) In great condition
Spotted this wooden bar cart – Oh the possibilities with this and do you see the price – yes – $10.00
Other than missing the door handle, (easy fix) there was nothing wrong with it. This baby came home with Amina, and I can’t wait to see what she does with it.
Spotted this brass and smoked glass lamp for a mere $5.99 – and YES! it came home with me. Just needs a new shade and I have a beautiful new lamp.
This mid-century china cabinet was a cheesey $45 (smh) can you believe that.. and it lights up! Solid wood from Drexel Heritage Furniture.
Last but not least.. this double mirror Thomasville dresser – swallow hard- $40.00 –I’m ready to pass out!!
I can’t F-N believe this! All the hardware, all the drawers, nothing and I mean NOTHING was wrong with this piece.. the only thing that was really wrong —- IT DIDN’T COME HOME WITH ME!!!!!
Boy did I wish I had a U-Haul
Now here’s the clinker… You see how low the prices were, but if you were there on Black Friday, you got an additional 50% off your first 5 items.. So can you imagine… all these good pieces would have been even lower. They had several other nice pieces but these were the ones I wanted to share with you. Although we didn’t partake in the Black Friday frenzy, we did support the ShopSmall Saturday, which was equally appreciated. I know I’m a bit behind with this post, but I’ve experiencing some hand issues again.. and have been resting my hands from the computer. This week, I’m headed to the sunny island of Aruba for one of our Girlfriends Getaways – Yaaaaayyy… so I’ll be sunning and funning . When I get back I’ve got another goodie makeover to share with you.. in the meantime, have great week! Smooches!
