Thrift Shopping - Mission Possible in Birmingham

I stopped into Mission Possible recently and found some incredible items I had to share.

Like this full size bed for less than $150.  It had a few dings but wow. 


I think this twin bamboo headboard was only around $10 or so!  This is pretty on trend now (people are incorporating those Golden Girls chairs into beautiful spaces).  With the right surroundings, this sucker could look so chic.

You're going to think I'm crazy.  But I've been thinking of this sofa ever since I laid eyes on it.  My initial thought was "ugly sofa, but it has great lines. Good candidate for reupholstery (in which case I would consider making two large cushions instead of four). But the more I looked at this thing... it's kind of rad as-is, and could look great with some kitchy pillows and modern accessories surrounding it. The color isn't great in this photo, but it gives you an idea of the green velvet color that is so on trend.
  
 

Any recent or favorite thrifting finds? Do you think the green sofa totally ugly or totally chic?

  1. I love the twin headboard! I would have been tempted to buy it for sure. Did you get anything?? I stopped by Goodwill and Salvation Army after work today...only came away with a little 50 cent owl dish :)

  2. I actually didn't this time, Susie. Bummer. Saw so many things that would work so well in the right home... just no space for them to work in ours, yah know? :)

    I'll admit, it's not as much fun when I leave empty-handed... but it's worth the hunt for the times you find those perfect items, right?

  3. Bed #1 is gorgeous! And I keep praying and crossing my fingers that we end up in B'ham. I would LOVE to go thrifting with you! ;)
