Thrifting with the click of a mouse

All of this week I’ve been fighting a cold! Lots of sneezing, a bit of a sore throat and a weird light headed feeling has left me doing most of my work near the closest sofa to ensure constant breaks.

Hmm wonder if the cold meds are making my design visions better or worse? :)

Of course I hate being home sick, but what’s been driving me crazy is not leaving the house and checking out my local thrift shops. I literally had a dream last night of treasures being stolen out of hands!

What’s a girl to do? In order to try and stop the heart palpitations I did the next best thing and logged on to Housing Works online shopping!

Check out these gems that could make it to my house or clients in only a couple of clicks!

Lillian August Sofa: Current bid $211.00

Alpine Black Lacquered Chest: Current bid $45.00

Lucite and Vinyl Stools: Current bid: $75.00

Oblong Petit Point Stool: Current bid $45.00

Ah! So many finds! So happy I was able to get my thrifting fix while I was under the weather.

The sniffles have subsided a bit and I need to venture out today to the bank so I wouldn’t put it past me to make a little detour at a thrift shop just to check everything out!

Don’t forget to enter the $100 SHOPBOP give-away! Totally jealous I can’t enter it myself!!!!!

I just lost an auction there for 4 lovely French chairs. So bummed.

That couch is to die for! It would probably cost a fortune to recover but its soo pretty!
