This summer has been a whirlwind with “Thrifting with the Gals“! There have been over 58 old-fashioned bargains, three summer and fall vintage markets, a few yard sales, and 2 estate sales.

It’s time for our monthly “Thrifting with the Gals” blog series, where the gals and I share our monthly thrifting adventures along with a few tips and trips from around the country.

Check out my favorite second-hand shops too in the post, The Best Antique, Thrift, and Second-Hand Shops from Vermont to Maine.

What Summer Home Decor Accessories Should I Thrift For? Thrift for simply what appeals to you. I shared a list and a few tips in the 17 Best Summer Home Decor Accessories to Thrift post.

I found 3 old-fashioned bargains at 2 separate pop-up yard sales in Vermont this summer. See more in the post, Baby Adidas, Petite Cobbler Rack, & Watercolor Ski Drawings.

I got fortunate this summer when a wonderful estate sale was happening around the corner from us in Vermont, where I scored, a Johnson Brothers tureen, platter, and a matching kitchen towel.

You may also enjoy seeing this hobbit house estate sale I attended last summer at the bottom of the post, Thrifting for Treasures with the Gals. Wow was it unique!

And let’s not forget our local thrift shops! This is the time of the year when people are cleaning out their homes and making donations.  Check out this Vintage Desert Rose Table Setting I scored!

I find my best bargains at second-hand shops though.  I find myself more productive when I’m shopping smaller venues. Although I adore the larger markets, I tend to get a bit overwhelmed.

Just this past week, on my way between Maine and Vermont, I found a fabulous Millinery hat mold, a Holland Mold pitcher, dominoes, and a brass patina duck. Affordable and easy in and out!

You won’t want to miss the fury and beauty Mother Nature recently bestowed upon Vermont while I was there too.

3 Vintage Markets To Attend this Fall:   Sage Farms Antiques: August 4-6, NH. Vintage Bazaar New England: Sept 30 – Oct 1, 2023,  Haverhill MA. Vintage Market Days VT: Oct 6 – 8, 2023  Rutland, VT.

In the meantime, enjoy the rest of your summer, and thanks so much for joining us all here today for “Thrifting with the Gals“.
