Thrifting with the Gals

“Thrifting with the Gals” started with a group of friends who met over on Instagram and formed a special relationship through a mutual love of home decorating. We share a passion for all things vintage, thrifty, and cozy. Sharing our monthly finds along with tips and tricks on our blogs here every month. And over on Instagram stories daily.

Our styles are all very unique from Kristin’s log cabin in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, Rachel’s farmhouse in North Carolina, Robyn’s beautiful French Nest in Florida, and of course myself thrifting for our homes from Vermont to Coastal Maine.

Meet the Thrifting Gals!

Welcome if you are joining me today from Cindy over at County Road 407! We are thrilled to have Cindy joining us this month as our guest host here with Thrifting with the Gals. I just love Cindy’s unique vintage vibe aesthetic from her home in Texas.

My Vintage Vibe Aesthetic in Maine

It all started with A Very Vintage Weekend

I spent a few weeks at our home in Maine this month thrifting and getting the home ready for our summer stay. And that always means a stop at my favorite, The Cottage by the Brook, where I found this collection of $2.00 blue and white cups and saucers, a bundle of paintbrushes, and so much more. See it all HERE.

Sage Farm Antiques Early Evening Buy Event

And once in Maine, I attended Sage Farm’s Early Buy Evening Event with a girlfriend and also met up with another home decor blogger, Jennifer over at Cottage on Bunker Hill.

We had so much fun! We browsed, shopped, enjoyed refreshments, and music. We all picked up some beautiful vintage vibe aesthetics that you won’t want to miss HERE.

A Coastal Vintage Vibe Aesthetic

One of the vintage pieces I picked up at the Early Evening Buy Event was this antique blue and white bowl.

A walk on the beach later led to some full-throttle beachcombing, which inspired this BEACHCOMBING, BLUE MUSSELS, AND AN ANTIQUE BOWL aesthetic on our antique coffee table.

Simple and personal.

The Humble Joys of an Old Fashioned Picnic Basket

I found an old-fashioned picnic basket recently in our attic at our home in Maine. It was my mother’s and she used to decorate with it in all kinds of different ways.

It really sparked the nostalgia and joys of decorating with picnic baskets so I rounded up a few of my favorites along with some vintage picnic blankets that I think you may enjoy in this post The Humble Joys of an Old Fashioned Picnic Basket.

The Biggest Red Bird House

Do you love birdhouses? Old or new? Large or small? We found the biggest red birdhouse to match our home here in Vermont.

Let me share with you how we simply mounted our new feathered friend’s new home HERE.

My husband had the idea to put it all to a Benny Hill tune, so be sure to check out the video there too.

Bountiful Bouquets of Lilacs

On Sunday we saw our first blooming lilacs here in Vermont. I think this is one of my favorite flowers along with the hydrangeas.

We recently planted a mature lilac and hydrangea tree in our front year and it’s going to be so exciting to see them both bloom this year.

However, since they really are still newbies, my neighbor was gracious enough to let me have some of their lilac clippings and I created a number of Bountiful Bouquets of Lilacs with them.

Like this old basket on the porch.

And I leave you with this today…

The best vintage vibe aesthetics to treasure are those that bring us fond memories of yesterday.

Here I hang my mother’s handmade quilt out on our clothesline for the first time this spring. I am mindful of the fresh clean clothesline sheets from my youth and the care my mother took in the everyday.

As shall I.

  1. I would love to be able to shop with another blogger friend! That sounded like so much fun and you saw some seriously great pieces. And I love seeing how you use some of them in your decor. I’ve decided that when my husband and I visit the New England states this fall, I need to rent a U-Haul! We don’t have the beautiful things like y’all do. I’m super jealous. Enjoy those Lilacs and thank you for letting me join y’all this month. So fun! pinned

    1. Where are you visiting this fall Cindy? That’s so exciting. I’ll have to fill you in all the good spots😉

  2. Ann,
    Your post is filled with so many great finds. I wish we lived closer. It would be so much fun thrifting with you in person.
