Thriftin’ Time Tuesdays


vintage 013


I feel like I just bought an Elvis painting…on velvet.  Silly me but I just had to have it for my Mexican themed vintage trailer.  This Sombrero is in pristine condition and is just absolutely gorgeous in a deep deep red with gray and gold accents.  I love that early 1950’s frame……$4.

the Sombrero…..$14. 


vintage 007


This stunning painting (check out that glitter on the tree) a whole $4!  Heeheee….yep, I got it for the frame.


 vintage 018


Here’s the very last $4 value….the best one I would say…can’t wait to reupholster this baby, for my craft room.  The seat swivels too.  I know I am going to like that.  Vintage 50’s.



  1. Score! Great finds, especially that swivel stool.

  2. Awesome finds. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I admit I've purchased a sombrero or two for the kids Spanish class fiesta's, but I shy away from anything that looks like Elvis, velvet, or Elvis on velvet! The stool however is killer.

  7. ok, next time I am up in Spokane,,, you are taking me shopping! I see the Sombero's all the time down here but never at that fantastic a price! you really scored there chickie!
    and if you just want the ' frame' I want that cute Church in the snow scene painting! SERIOUSLY! heeheehee!
