In the last couple of weeks I've thrifted several nice pieces of art. It got me thinking, the majority of the art in my home has come from yard sales, flea markets or thrift stores. My latest scores have come from the Goodwill. I've sorted through alot of tacky "art" at the Goodwill. Who buys that stuff in the first place ?!? Oddly, our Goodwill seems to have an abundance of duck and palm tree themed pictures (although not on the same canvas, thankfully). Flea markets and yard sales consistently have higher quality pieces but also have higher prices. An often heard line at the flea market is.... "the frame alone would cost you that much new".
Artist signed photograph: Goodwill - $5.25
Artist signed and numbered print: flea market $10
Growing collection of black and white photography
Total cost: $15
Faux wood mirror: flea market - $10
Grand Canyon Lithograph: flea market $5
Today's find: a 1970's 12" Replogle 'World Premier' globe.......and it lights up! I found it at an estate sale down the street. It was their second day so everything was 50% off. I wouldn't have bought it for $28 but I couldn't resist for $14. It's so cool when its plugged it! Maps and globes are great to decorate with. They're cheap, colorful and fun to look at and dream about where you want to go :)
