Thrifting Ventura

09.17.14

There ain’t no party like a thrift store party especially one in downtown Ventura. There’s a few things I love about this city and one of them is it’s vintage game. Most of these picks are strictly from downtown Ventura. Some pictures are from secret spots that I will take to my grave. (Unless you come with me).

Floor to ceiling mid century light fixture. White with brass detailing in the middle. I originally passed on this guy when I first saw it priced at $25 (also when I took this picture), but went back again this Monday to see if it was still there. To my delight it had a $.50 tag on it. I immediately put it in my car. After a bit of cleaning and a new batch of Edison Bulbs this piece now resides in my bedroom. (pic below).

This arch light. This arch light makes me want to purchase a truck. All you need is a new set of bulbs, which will set you back more that the cost of this light | $12.95

image

Side table heaven and check out those speakers in the back. $24 for the table | $19 each for the speakers

image

Deco foot stool. Paint it white (or a matte black…) with that brass detailing. $25

Dresser party. They had a full set of these bad boys at The Coalition downtown. 2 dressers and 1 nightstand. If I only had the room. $80 each for the bigger dressers and $30 for the nightstand.

I have a huge crush on this couch. Also, I REALLY need to buy a truck. The fabric was a little torn on the back, but I’m not a huge red fan so it would eventually recovered anyway in my book. With those lines an emerald green or navy crushed velvet would be killer. Is non-buying remorse a thing? | $45

And for the after picture.. I love lamp. I love lamp so much. To my surprise, you can either have 1, 2 or the 3 bulbs on at once. Absolutely dreamy.

 

HAPPY HUNTING
