In an attempt to get back to my old thrifting self, I am creating this reoccurring post to display some of my great thrift store finds and show off what I do with them. Since I will always be shopping with baby I am setting a goal of one post per month, that sounds reasonable.
The Hunt: Rectangular Tablecloth. We are receiving a hand-me-down dining table from my folks that, despite being older than me, is in great shape. It is large with leaves to fit 8 or more people. I only own vintage tablecloths (my grandmother's) that fit a card table or small round table, which is what we currently use.
The Score: Twin size Ikea duvet cover, 100% cotton. BRAND NEW!!! That's right, never used.
My eye went straight to it on the rack.
I love the versatility of the organic orange shapes; great for Autumn, parties, or all summer long. The best part, no stains to remove and minimal sewing to close up the duvet hole.
That's right, 5 bucks!
You can't buy a rectangular tablecloth at Target for that. Did I mention that the duvet was new?
But wait, that tag says 2 piece...
Hmmmmmm, maybe the b-side to some throw pillows?
