This metal buzzard made me smile when I saw it and still does. I like sculptures and have several in metal, cast iron, and paper mache. I paid $15 for him.

Decorating with quasi-one of a kind vintage finds gives my space the sense of creative individuality that I strive for when decorating. Not only do I enjoy the experience and process of hunting for decorative treasures, but when I get something at a bargain price to boot, I’m over the moon.

These are some of my favorite thrift stores and yard sale finds. Thrift stores and yard sales (and sometimes auctions) is where you will find the best deals and prices. Antique stores and vintage home stores are fun to shop as well but you will pay a little more as these collections are curated.

I’m obsessed with old church relics. I found this altarpiece at a roadside shop in Connecticut. The owner had just got it in store and it was sitting on the counter. I asked how much, and was elated when he told me $10.

I found this old window several years ago while hitting the yard sales one Saturday with my sister. She wanted it too but I saw it first. I paid $20 and use it in my plant room.

This is an example of the wonderfully quirky things I find thrifting and just cannot pass up. This rat made of jute was $2 and we’re friends.
This gorgeous church wall tapestry was one of those finds-of-the-year and I was floored at the $10 price tag.
I picked this up many years ago at Savers for $3. I always check the “wood” section for vintage cutting boards.
I love the craftsmanship on the handle of this old saw I found at a yard sale for $1. Beautiful.
I found this antique coffee urn for $10 at Goodwill. I was going to use it as a vase for fresh flowers but the spout isn’t completely drip-free so I use it for these metal flowers instead.
You never ever have to pay full boat retail for antique silver.
Thrift shops are teaming with silver, brass and copper decor. I got these heavy trays at Red, White and Blue Thrift with an additional 50% off sticker.
This church dollhouse is the most expensive thing I’ve ever purchased at a thrift store. Another roadside thrift store in Connecticut had in stock several handcrafted dollhouses donated from an estate to be sold as a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club. The man who made this and the others was a genuine artist. I was happy to pay $100 for the craftsmanship and for a good cause.
I have a string of battery operated lights inside and use it has a kind of nightlight sometimes.
