“We’ve all been there.  You’re scouting out items at the thrift store or at an estate sale and you come across an item that you would love to take home.  If only it weren’t in such bad shape.

  • A wooden cutting board that has seen a few too many blueberries.
  • A silver tea pot that has been exposed to the elements since before Kennedy was President.
  • A gorgeous linen pillowcase with the most intricate embroidery work, but looks as if Lady Gaga has been removing her makeup with it.

I’ve been there. I’ve let things sit on the thrift store shelf, instead of taking the chance to bring them home. I’ve collected some tips from around the web on the best ways to clean thrift store finds that you actually should be buying.”

If you love it, buy it! Even if it’s stained, tarnished, discolored, just buy it. You can save it and breathe new life into it with the help of this post from House of Hawthornes. So check this out, and don’t pass up on something you love the next time you find it when you’re thrifting.
