As you know, I'm a big fan of thrifted accessories, furniture, art etcetera when decorating my apartment. Perhaps I was just born in the wrong era, because I'm a big fan of vintage cars, clothing and architecture as well. They just don't make 'em like they used to. And finding eclectic treasures I love makes me happy when I look around my home and remember where I found them. And my thrifted finds are usually my favorite finds. I even keep track of them in a little journal; where I found them, what I paid and any other fun tidbit I'd like to remember. Here are just a few of my thrifted favorites and below are some of my best resources for tracking down a good bargain. So splurge on the gorgeous sofa, but remember, thrifting is a girl's best friend.
