Who said that you won’t find nice stuff at a thrift store? I should have done this before, visit the thrift store near my place. They have lots of cheap and awesome stuff that I like (and need). Last Tuesday, I went to the Fretex (The Salvation Army) shop near where I live. I didn’t think of buying anything, I only wanted to check what they have. I also find it relaxing to go inside a thrift store.
It was my first time to go inside this store. It looks small from the outside but very spacious inside. I first checked out the furniture department and found vintage sofas and coffee tables. Then I went to the glass/figurine/porcelain department and there I found Japanese tea cups. I got really happy and even happier when I found out how much they cost. So without hesitation, I put them in my basket and I started looking if those tea cups belong to set. Unfortunately, no tea pots to be found but I’m still glad that I found the tea cups. Four of the tea cups are made of clay and the tall white ones with characters on it are semi porcelains. Then on my way to the cashier, I found a sushi set. This is exactly what I need. I’ve been hunting this kind of sushi plates since last year. I feel so lucky!
I only paid 145 NOK for all of these. It’s a steal!
How about you? Found anything interesting in the thrift shop lately? 🙂
