Today I’m sharing some recent home decor thrift finds with you!

Hello! You guys. I haven’t shared a thrift haul with you in SO long…like months! That’s crazy! My thrifting game has been strong lately and I have so much good stuff to share; so much so that I had a difficult time choosing which finds were going to be featured in this post. But no fear! I picked 5 of my favorite home decor thrift finds to show you today. I’ll share why I chose each item, how much I paid, and where I have each piece displayed in my home. This is going to be fun!

Home Decor Thrift Finds

Vintage Needlework Picture

The first item I am sharing today is this vintage cross stitch picture. If you haven’t heard, I love to collect vintage needlework art. This is, to date, the largest needlework art piece that I have seen OR found at a thrift store.

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it, just sitting on the floor, leaned up against a piece of furniture. Already knowing it was mine, I hurriedly picked it up to check the price. It was only $5.99!

I put it in my cart and, looking at it closer, was just blown away by the detail and the colors on it. The artwork is extraordinary and the scale of it is so large. Someone spent so much time creating this piece and it’s just beautiful.

The vintage flowers with the two birds flying around above makes me feel extremely peaceful, so I decided to hang it in my bedroom on the wall opposite my bed. This vintage art piece exudes calmness and serenity, which is everything I want my bedroom to be. I’m so thankful that it lives in my house now!

Vintage Mirror

If you remember my post on decor that I’m looking for in 2022, vintage mirrors were one of the items on that list. I found this stunning mirror at my local thrift store about a month ago. It needed some love and a few repairs since the glass was kind of falling out, but I couldn’t not bring it home with me. This beauty was only $5.99!

It is exactly the style that I was looking for with that beautiful detailing across the top. I also adore the rounded corners of the wood frame, giving it such a pretty vintage look.

While at the store, I thought that the size of this mirror would be perfect for my entryway, which is where it is now! I love how it pulls light from nearby lamps, making the rather small entry feel larger and brighter.

Milk Glass Banana Stand

My affection for milk glass continues. I’m getting pretty picky about my milk glass though, only buying pieces that are unique or that I don’t see often. You guys…banana stands are SO rare and usually very expensive.

This lovely one was tucked back on the very bottom of a shelf, so hidden that I almost didn’t see it! The detailing on this one is spectacular. It reminds me of a lace tablecloth.

It was only $7.99, which is the lowest price I’ve ever seen on a milk glass banana stand! I didn’t think twice about bringing it home with me. I’ve said it before, but milk glass is very versatile for decorating due to it’s neutral color.

I use my milk glass all year round by adding seasonal touches accordingly. This banana stand is one of my favorite pieces that I’ve ever found at the thrift store and am just so happy that it is part of my collection!

Floral Table Linen

Vintage linens are some of my favorite pieces to search for while out thrifting or antiquing. This one actually came from an estate sale that I just happened to drive past on the way home from getting groceries. Convenient right?!

It was a Sunday so anything that was left was half price. It was pretty picked over but this pretty table linen was still there waiting for me. I only paid $1.50 for it!

The scalloped edges are so beautiful and the colors of the floral embroidery are lovely, making it a perfect piece for the summer months ahead!

Wooden Bread Box

The last thrifted find I wanted to share today is this vintage bread box! My husband has recently started to bake our bread from scratch, which is SO GOOD by the way, but we didn’t have a place to store it.

So! I do what I do and got on Marketplace multiple times a day, searching for the perfect bread box. I knew I wanted a wooden one with a roll top and a vintage print that said ‘bread’. I present to you that EXACT description!

Found, on Marketplace, for $10!! Like, what?!? Isn’t that little cream knob just adorable? All of the imperfections on the wood add to the beauty of it. These exact bread boxes are selling for around $80 on various other platforms.

I was beyond joyful to say the least. And yes, we do use it to store our homemade bread and it works like a charm! It adorns our countertop in all it’s vintage glory.

Closing Thoughts

Aren’t those home decor thrift finds so good?? The thing about vintage pieces is that they bring so much charm and character to your home that you can’t find anywhere else. Thrift stores are my happy places and thrifting for vintage brings me such joy. My whole goal in sharing my finds with you is to extend a love of thrifting as well as a helping hand and encouragement for you.

You can create a beautiful home with thrifted and second hand decor! In my opinion, decorating your home with vintage decor is much more special than buying brand new, mass produced items from large retail stores. I hope these finds inspire you to curate your home with pieces that speak to you.
