I think something that we all share on Apartment Therapy is the love of a successful thrift store hunt. It's just so satisfying to quickly hop into a thrift store and leave with something unexpected and inexpensive. It's often these precious little impromptu finds that are the most useful and continue to stay with us for the long haul.
Last year I spotted this small, quirky, rectangular dish with a line drawing of this creature picking his teeth, and I just had to have it. I didn't know what I would use it for, but I knew right then and there that it was definitely coming home to start its new life with me.
Well this funky little dish has since become one of my favorite pieces; it makes me chuckle like a little girl everyday. I know it's not something most people would consider a treasure, but I just love its goofiness. I use it to hold my all-too-many daily supplements, and it has helped transform an 'ugh'-worthy, mundane task into something much easier to swallow.
It's these kinds of cheap, unexpected treasures that I love most. What favorite thrift scores do you continuously fawn over? Share your finds with us below.
