We had yet another week of limited thrifting here at a living space. With our new goal of selling off most of the things we've acquired over the past several years we have found little time (or need) to stop and find things. We did, however, win some auctions on Ebay, our new favorite method of purchasing. This allows us to sift through things and find good deals with a bit more selectivity than the thrift stores, but we do have to put more down for the return.
These two teak Dansk kitchen items were our wins for the week. We had great success selling the last identical pepper grinder we bought on Ebay so we decided to play our odds and buy another--it'll go up on Etsy shortly. The cutting board on the other hand is awesome, and will be a permanent upgrade to our kitchen. If you're keeping track, we now own a few too many cutting boards, but we love them all so much, we can't bear to part with any yet...
Julia also picked up a handmade quilt at Savers, but we forgot to take pictures of it, so that will have to wait until next week.
Interested in what we're selling for the move? Check out our last post about all of the large pieces of furniture that we're trying to unload on Craigslist!
Do you love teak as much as we do? Have any vintage weaknesses, like we do for Dansk cutting boards? Let us know how your week went!
These blogs also host great link-ups that we join, so make sure you check them out, too: Apron Thrift Girl, Me and my Shadow, Sir Thrift-A-Lot, and a brand new one at Remnant!
Without further ado, a few easy rules for the Nifty Thrifty Link Up:
1. We would love it if you would follow our blog on Google Friend Connect (check the right sidebar), like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and leave a friendly comment :)
2. Only link up recent blog posts that showcase your thrifty finds from the week, including items from yard sales, estate sales, thrift stores, consignment stores, flea markets, and even the side of the road! Thrifty finds that you have restored or updated are fine, but please no unrelated DIY or craft projects (we like those, too, but lets keep this link-up focused on thrifty vintage!).
3. Remember to LINK BACK to this blog - a living space - so everyone can join in!
4. Link straight to your individual post, not your whole blog.
5. No links to Etsy shops or other non-blog sites.
Thanks for joining in!
