Best Thrift Store Finds

We're always envious of those gifted thrift store types. You know, the people who manage to find a mid-century gem for only $20; people who find a dumpy couch and with a quick cleaning and new pillows suddenly have a fantastic centerpiece for their living room. Yeah...we hate those people. Still, we've been lucky once or twice!

Coming home from a weekend in Michigan we found these trolley seats in a very unassuming resale shop just outside of Jonesville. The price? $15.

A friend of our loves Sad Eyes paintings: dogs, cats, people, you name it. We discovered this Sad Eye girl, complete with frame, at the Village Discount on 26th street for only $2.

Finally, we love furniture with history to it -- even if the history is some random teenager scribbling the name of the girl he happens to love that week. This school chair was fished out of a Catholic school garage sale on Lincoln for only $5. Joanie loves Chachi!
