My Thrifty Finds

As promised, although several days late, are pictures of my finds at the consignment shop. This new consignment shop, called Kim's Consigned Designs, is by far the nicest consignment shop that I have been in so far. It is such a big space and things are nicely displayed and the prices are great.

My first deal is this little kids sewing machine. It is a replica of an old machine, brand new in the box and was only $8.00. I have been looking for antique toy machines for my sewing room, but those prices were scary. So I thought this would be a good start. It even has a little foot peddle. So cute!

My next find was this little chest. I think it used to be a larger dresser at one time. But for $10.00, I am going to put some legs on it and use it for something clever. Not sure what color to paint it though. I seem to be painting things black these days, but I am going to try a different color, I think. Anyway, those are my thrifty finds! Enjoy! I don't know when I will get this painted, I have set some other goals of things to finish first!


  1. I am so jealous of your little toy, what a DEAL!! I have also been looking for those type items to display in my sewing area.

  2. The lettle sewing machinge is darling. Great find!

  3. Precious machine! I've never seen one like that.

    Your other picture wouldn't load. There's a red x where the picture is supposed to be. I tried twice. No luck.

  4. What great finds! Will you post a photo of your dresser when your finished ...I love the idea of adding legs to it :-)

  5. Oh, the sewing machine is just too cute!!! I have been sewing all my life (or so it seems) and have never seen anything like it...will be on the hunt for one immediately!
