My treasure...

I *heart* resale shops.  I am amazed sometimes, well lots of times, at what other see as 'old' or 'worn' and just get rid of.

You know what they say though, "One man's trash...."

So check out the trash treasure I found yesterday!

A rug...

Actually it is three rugs pieced together.  As I was inspecting the back for stains and sniffing it out (literally) I stumbled across the price tag still attached to one of the rugs.  It was Anthropologie and priced at $280 per rug.

Which means I got THREE rugs at $280 for only $80!  I happy danced all over this heavy rug once I dragged it in the door.  Soft, perfect condition, clean & a deal.

Yep.  That is why I shop resale.

PS- I had this fabric sitting in my closet since Christmas.  It was given to me by a friend who told me to make something with it....she got the whole bolt of fabric at Goodwill for around $25 dollars!  I made drapes earlier today....


  1. Lucky duck. That is one awesome deal you found. Your new rug looks great in your room and so do the curtains.

  2. Do any guys ever sit in that room? Way too many pillows (but it looks pretty)

    1. Yes, Joe- we sit on those sofas! The pillows are down filled just like the cushions, so you sink into them rather than trying to sit comfortably on them :)

  3. Great score! Thanks for joining Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop :)


Thanks so much for popping in. I appreciate all of your lovely comments...Tricia
