Thrifted: Wicker Trunk

Thrifted: $25

My long-suffering search for a trunk has come to a close! I have been looking for a trunk to store fabric and yarn and I finally found something that fits the bill! On any given weekend, you can probably catch me at your neighborhood thrift store or estate sale. I have found so many items for my home and closet simply by shopping these venues.

Saturday’s catch of the day was the beautiful wicker truck, pictured in the slideshow below. Originally, it was to be sold for $50. Most estate sales will mark everything 50% off on Saturday starting at 12 noon, so I arrived in time to take advantage of that.  As soon as I saw it, I had to have it! It’s in great condition; the interior is made of real wood, the straps are real leather, and there are no visible defects.

Of course, I could’ve opted to purchase something similar brand new…

The Signature Hardware has a similar trunk for $240

The Pottery Barn: $150

But I’m pretty satisfied with my thrifted purchase!

Are you a thrifter?
