Fun Finds

Last Friday's thifting adventures left me feeling like I'd hit the jackpot.

It was all about metal office supplies.

First off I found this amazing Royalmetal armchair in very good condition.

I was very excited about the chair.  I have an arm-less version that has become my favorite chair in the house to use.  I have a feeling it may be replaced by this one.

At this point I thought I had found the find of the day . . . surprisingly I was wrong.

In the same store I happened across two metal letter sorters and a metal card file.
All three I think will come in very handing in my studio.

I love how the desktop version has a place for little labels.

After the thrift store, I picked up my girls and we went to a huge church sale.  I have never seen anything like it before.  Room after room of goodies to look over and at the very end a gym full of furniture.

Which is where if found the day's jackpot.

A metal desk . . . 

(sorry for the photo, this thing is heavy and must wait for hubby to help me carry it in the house - - just ignore my messy garage)

And a metal side board.  Both for fifteen dollars.

I just about fainted.

I have been looking and looking for a metal desk to use in my studio space so you can imagine my excitement.

Together with the side board I think my little studio space may become a little crowded but I am hoping it will all work out and I can enjoy all the storage space they offer.

All in all, it was a fantastic day of thrifiting for me.  One of which that doesn't happen very often.

How about you.

Any jackpot moments?


  1. Hi Robin. What great scores you found. The metal desk is awesome.

  2. Don't you just love days like this Robin!!! You really found such great things for the studio. You will really love the storage these will give you!
    I don't get to go thrifting too often but I did go this past weekend and had so much fun.
    sending hugs...

  3. I love your newly acquired studio furniture! I look forward to seeing how you fit it into the studio, I know it will look wonderful. I found some great furniture items on Craig's list for our new home. Yes, we sold our little cottage and bought a four bedroom house. It needed more furniture so I went looking there and was not disappointed!
    Hugs, Cindy


I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
