Happy Sunday, and welcome to Dirt Road Adventures – Getting Back To the Thrift Stores! Each Sunday, we review all the exciting events behind the scenes, on the website, and the sources of inspiration I discovered online during the past week. This weekly recap ensures you don’t miss any of our adventures.
Y’all know that I have been itching to get back to the thrift stores. This past week, I shared tips for thrift store shopping, my favorite finds of last year, and how to decorate with them. Plus, what to thrift for in the new year, trends, and vintage must-haves.
We actually had some thrifting adventures for the first time since before Christmas. We shopped at an antique mall and a few charity thrift shops.
Although the antique mall had several interesting pieces, many were not budget-friendly. However, I had better luck at the donation thrift stores.
Be sure to check out this week’s finds at the end of today’s Dirt Road Adventures!

Adventures at the End of the Dirt Road
This is a look back at all my adventures this past week.
Adventures I’ve Had This Past Week
Here are some behind-the-scenes from our thrifting adventures last week.
One of the booths was filled with copper, breadboards, and other fun antiques. This year, I’m hoping to add to my art collections and folk art pieces. The antique mall had several art pieces that I’d like to add to my collection, but the prices didn’t work within my budget.
