Hi everyone! Today, I’m in Johnson City at my favorite antique mall, and I thought I’d bring you along with me. So let’s go see what they have today.
Welcome back! I am so happy to be here with you. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been antiquing a few times. I know I said I’d post videos every Friday, but things didn’t go as planned, especially last week when I was out of town. As a homemaker, I love blogging and making YouTube videos, but my family always comes first. So, I hope you’ll stick with me, subscribe, and hit the bell for notifications.
In the past weeks, I’ve visited my favorite antique store in Johnson City, Tennessee, and popped into my local Goodwill in Harlan, Kentucky. I’ve found quite a few things, so let’s dive in!
At Goodwill, I found two throws; one brand new Christmas-themed for $3 and another used one for $9. I love their colors and plan to use them during the holiday season. I also picked up a small cross-stitch sampler for $2.50, which I think will look great in the family room. Our family room is nearing completion, and I’m excited about decorating it, possibly before Thanksgiving.
I also found some vintage tennis rackets at Goodwill for $1 each. My daughter, taking tennis in college, inspired me to pick them up. I’ve enjoyed playing tennis with her and plan to use these rackets as decoration in the family room.
Other Goodwill finds include a wooden candle wall sconce for 99 cents, a basket for $2.99, and a round tablecloth with a gingham pattern for 99 cents. I plan to use these in various rooms in our house.
At the antique store in Johnson City, I spent a delightful few hours and brought home several pieces. I got a blue and white floral planter for $8, which I plan to use for real plants in different rooms. I also found two Disney World Silhouettes for $7.99 each. I bought them for their frames to replace with silhouettes of my daughters.
I picked up a cross-stitch cardinal for $6 and an embroidered linen with a pineapple and cherries design for $5. These pieces will add charm to my family room and kitchen. Additionally, I found a handmade felt garland for Christmas, priced at $15, which will fit perfectly with the lakeside theme in the family room.
A striking find was a beautiful blue and white platter for $22 from Staffordshire, England. I also bought two books: an old library book on American flags for $4 and a vintage pie cookbook from Farm Journal for $6. I love adding personal notes to my cookbooks for my children.
The last piece I got was a green file cabinet for $28, matching perfectly with the green theme in my family room. I plan to use it for storing games and decorations.
I appreciate you joining me today. I have a lot of decorating and painting to do around the house. We’re heading to Florida this weekend for a baby shower, and then I’ll prepare for Thanksgiving. I hope you have a wonderful week, and don’t forget to subscribe and share your favorite piece from today’s finds. See you in the next video. Bye!
