I recently cruised over to the Guild Shop, which is an amazing resale store in town, and decided to document my trip. I would be in there every day scoping things out if their hours were better, but it's probably for the best. Anyway, let's see what they had to offer.
This black nightstand/side table was so cute (and was only $39.00). I actually saw it during my trip before (2 days earlier) and was digging the handle and the gold fretwork patter on the top. Maybe it was because the pattern reminded me of my recent cabinet makeover. The lamp on the right is pretty neat too (the one on the left -- well, I'll just say it's not my style).
They have tons of mirrors in every shape and size imaginable. This fancy beauty caught my eye. The frame was plastic, but it was only $18.00.
How pretty is this desk? The lines were gorgeous and the leather inset with the gold trim was fabulous. I sure wish I needed a desk.
Before you start worrying, I am not a fan of the fabric on these chairs, but the lines are great. These puppies are just screaming to be reupholstered.
And check out this old card catalog. I don't know what I would do with it, but Mr. Goodwill Hunting found one at Goodwill recently and collected some great inspiration images.
Speaking of perfect candidates for reupholstering . . . this chair is so sweet.
This original painting almost came home with me, but I didn't know for sure where I would put it, so I passed. Now I wish I would have just bought it anyway. It was $30.00. The colors were more vibrant in person and it was just so sweet.
I am a complete sucker for milk glass. Thankfully there were no pieces that were calling my name today, but I came very close to walking out of there with a large footed bowl for $18.00.
And if you need silver, this is definitely the place to check out. They have tons of it. During the recent episode of Dear Genevieve (I am a big fan of that show), Genevieve said thrift store silver was the way to go.
These candle holders would be perfect on a dining room table or buffet.
How sweet are these guys? I almost bought them, but figured Justin wouldn't be a big fan. I think for the pair they were originally $12.00, but marked down to $7.00.
And my favorite find of all . . . this beauty. I am actually considering going back and buying it for our entry way. I have to measure to make sure it will fit to allow enough clearance for the entry hall closet door to open, and if I wait a couple more days, the price will drop $30.00.
There is also a console table there I am stalking. Someone already purchased it, but hasn't been back yet to pick it up. It is awesome -- like seriously, awesome. I couldn't get a good picture of it; and some old lady was giving me weird looks as I was trying. I thought maybe she was the buyer giving me the stink-eye for taking pictures of her table. So I decided to keep walking. Once I thought she was out of earshot, I asked a guy who worked there how long they had to come back and get it, and he said to check back in a week and if it's still there it may be a "contender" to sell (again). Well, I will be checking back for sure. And I'm pretty sure old stink-eye will be too. She was listening so intently to what he was saying to me from afar, the guy even asked her if she needed help. She quickly replied "no" when she was busted up for listening in on our convo. I am so on to you old lady.
Of course, I will keep you posted if there are any developments with the gorgeous chandy or the table (or anything else that happens to come home with me)!
