Around town: Thrifting in Modesto

29 Dec

Sorry this post has gotten to you so late. I am that last minute christmas shopper er maker…I’ve been spending the past two weeks with my husband making and wrapping christmas gifts:


We made pillows. Alright alright. Back to thrifting. So I’ll admit that a lot of the adventures in thrifting are determined by craigslist listings. I’ve seen some sweet stuff for cheap in modesto the past month or so so I figure we should go check it out. See what thrifting is like. This weekend me and my husband also went to Salinas to visit his folks for the holidays. We spent this monday in that bay thrifting. So I’ll be posting two thrifting adventures for this week :] Some of the thrift stores dont have reviews on the interwebs so heres a listing of some in Modesto.


Started off at the goodwill.

Toni and I decided on Monday that instead of going to vacaville we were going to hit up the Auburn strip. I suggest for any of you dear readers to do the same. There’s a good load of thrift stores on that strip and tons of cute 50’s buildings to look at! Here’s some photos looted from Flikr

Last Friday my husband needed a ugly sweater for a project that the verge was having. I’ve known about the need for this sweater for awhile now and have been putting it off. So much so that I forgot about it altogether. So Friday (day of project) I scooted my little self to my homebase Thrift Town woot woot.

Spray paint this thing all white!


Once there was a vase on craigslist like this one above (a’lil er a lot bigger) and my husband was reallly into it. So I bought this thing.

Around Town: Goodwill outlet

21 Sep

Many thanks go out to Toni for referring me to the goodwill outlet! I checked it out today and was enthralled. There was some elbow pushing going on that for being there for the first time I just had to sit back and observe. But I think I have it figured it out. So’s next time I am completely prepared to get my dig on and be brutal.
Here’s some stuff they have their now that I thought was pretty cute:
