Vintage Adventure – Thrifting with a Kindred Friend is Twice the Fun

I really do enjoy looking for vintage items for my business, Southern Vintage Table and actually like going solo. I don’t have to consult with anyone about where I’m going, how how many times I walk down that same aisle of china or whether I want to stop at just one more store. But, no doubt about it, it’s tons more fun when you get to share the experience with someone, especially if it’s a friend who loves thrifting as much as you!

Last Friday, Jami and I explored my favorite haunts in Burlington and Mebane.  At our first stop we found some vintage wheat china and Jami’s keen eye spotted a beautiful blue and gold china pattern.  At the next store Jami found a pair of Golden Wheat glasses and I mulled over whether to pay $15 for a vintage school desk. As far as the desk, I decided that I’d keep looking.

We toured a used furniture store and then went to the place where Jami would find the best deal of the day – the child’s metal school desk – for only $5.  It’s perfect for displaying a bouquet of flowers, a potted plant or even a sign. I got a few other things and Jami bought her major purchase of the day – a $1 plastic container with a lid for her paints.  Talk about thrifty!

Clay Street in Mebane was our last stop and after eating a late lunch, we walked through Melville’s Trading. I knew Jami would love this place and she did.  It has a little bit of everything with different vendors renting spaces throughout the building.  I left with a vintage file box but also with visions for future projects.

It was a great afternoon – exploring, admiring and finding treasures – with my kindred friend.  Thank you, Jami!

  1. Oh my gosh, I feel like a star! You make me sound like the best thrift shopper ever! I thoroughly enjoyed our day. All of these are great photos, and I love the way you used the tags to create a welcome sign on the bird cage. So creative!
