I haven't been to a flea market, garage sale, thrift store, or antique store in about six months and I have really been itching to get out there and do some shopping. Pair that up with recently learning about The Pineville Tavern (which is a 45 minute drive from our house) and you've got the recipe for a thrifting expedition. After mapping out as many thrift stores that we can find along the way, we headed out for what turned out to be a five hour adventure. It was totally worth it... we got some amazing handmade ravioli and a lot of cool old stuff!
At the very first stop, I got my favorite purchase of the day... this amazing swag lamp. It was a decent deal, but I picked it up at an antique store, so it was only reasonably priced... not a steal. I am still figuring out where to hang it in my living room and I can't wait until it is up and glowing.
Some of our thrifted goodies can be seen in the next picture. I can say I am happy with any thrift store outing that ends with another piece of vintage Pyrex making its way into my house. I am also in love with this ridiculous owl cookie jar. Not sure if the glass is vintage or not, but I will add it to my random colorful drinkware collection regardless.
When all was said and done, we hit two antique stores, five thrift stores, and the tavern for lunch midway through the day. To our surprise, our last thrift stop was near a bakery that we had never heard of called Eet Gud in Trenton, NJ. I've been to that thrift shop dozens of times and this is the first time I ever saw this bakery (thank yelp!). They had some really good treats and it was a sweet ending to the day!
