Lately I've been on a real fitness kick--life has been so stressful that I find myself going for runs or doing yoga just to get a break from it all. On today's run, I took a route I don't usually take and ran down 7th East, Salt Lake City. And what did I find but a cute little consignment shop with beautiful pieces and extremely reasonable prices. It's called Haight and Ashbury, located at 2219 South 7th East. Take a look:
Greeting you when you walked in were these adorable metal chairs with cheery cushions and this bedside table used here like a kid's play table. Chairs were $40 for the pair! I believe the table was $40 as well--what a steal!
I found a pillow for my honey that I didn't pull the trigger on--but I should have! Pretty grey felt ombre pillow for $12.
$125 for this nice-sized kitchen table. It already had a nice worn look to it--when my boyfriend gets home I'm going to try to convince him to buy it :)
This is a terrible photo but it was a beautiful dresser for under $200 ($140?) with the prettiest blue color and unique handles. Wish I'd seen this before the BF went to Ikea for his dresser :(
When I saw these pretty plates....
...I immediately thought of this inspiration image:
I've been really into the light pink/olivey green color combo lately. Think of this settee ($220!)...
...reupholstered in velvety green the color of the bottom plate, with light pink piping. Wouldn't it be adorable in a little girl's room?? Maybe with those pink chairs from the top image and a tea set on the blue (repainted white) side table...mmmm.
After leaving Haight and Ashbury, I ran to the Sugarhouse neighborhood, where of course I had to stop at another favorite second-hand store Home Again (2100 South 1019 East). Here are my two favorite things they have right now:
Bar cart, $42. I'd repaint it a more fun color, plus the wheel spokes were reeeeeeally shiny, so I'd maybe spray paint or gold leaf them. Would be a cute bar cart, or a place for all your makeup/perfumes/etc in a small bathroom. Someone go get this!
If you can't tell from the terrible photo, they're salt and pepper shakers. They're triagonal, but what you can't tell very well is they're slightly twisted, making them really unique. I also like the one hole/three holes on the sides instead of the tops. I think they look more like sculptures than shakers--so pretty! Tag said $35 but the owner said she'd do them for $25. Still debating.
What do you think? Worth it for pretty sculptures, or a stupid price to pay for such a little item?
