My Thrifty Road Trip | Part 2

Our mini-road trip was a lot of fun and a huge success.  Not only did we stop at 10+ different shops (and roadside barns) but we also had time to take our son to a fun hands on museum. 

We traveled to Hendersonville, NC and stopped at all the small towns along the way.  Some of my best finds came from the roadside barns selling antiques - the type of places that don't show up on Google!  But, I did hit the jackpot at a HUGE warehouse called Needful Things.  This place is over 50,000 square feet and holds over 200 antique and thrift vendors.  I needed more than just a few hours to go through everything so I'm already planning a trip back.

I've been on the lookout for an old tobacco basket for quite some time now but I haven't liked the price tag on many that I've found.  So when I scored this one for only $30 and the teal paint was already splattered on it, I was more than excited!

And a cute, white chair for under $10 - YES please!

There were many smaller finds too - blue mason jars, wooden spoons, wooden bowls, books, trays, etc. 

And let's not forget the amazing shutters I found and all the photo session props!  Our truck was definitely overflowing with all kind of goodies.  I even fell asleep on the way home and woke up to the hubby pulling into another roadside antique shop that he found for me :) It's the little things... :)

We are gearing up for vacation soon so I'm sure I will find some more interesting places to stop at.

Thanks for reading,
