Anyone that has been reading around here for a while has probably read plenty about my lovely friend Robyn (of The Poor Porker) We met at The Poor Porker one Saturday,and we loved their personalities, community vision, and warmth so much we decided to ask them if we could do a shoot for them ( see the shoot here!). Matt and I have had the privilege of working with her on several lifestyle/food shoots since then, like a feature on Sous Style and the Bonnie Loves Clyde project. Robyn is talented in the kitchen for sure, she has an incredibly warm personality, killer style , and a knack for finding amazing things at the thrift!
Thanks Robyn for sharing your lovely treasures!
I adore anthropologie but really, who can afford a $5000 cabinet or a $30 teacup? Nevertheless, that lovely store has always been a great source of inspiration. Here’s a fun little game I play with myself.. Window shop there, then hit my favorite thrift shops and find similar things at a fraction of the price.
Here are a few of my recent anthropologie inspired finds…
Glass top ball jars- $2 each goodwill
Framed picture- photo from a thrifted photo book of Chesapeake Bay, 50 cents frame- goodwill outlet, 25 cents
Incense holder- $3 Salvation Army
Shelf and brackets- Free, salvaged.
Wooden carved captain bust- $4.50 Sunshine thrift store
Hand painted from the 40s- FREE the lighthouse. It was in the garbage bin and they gave it to me because it was a little rusty. Yipppeee! Score!
Hand painted woman on ceramic- $2 Goodwill
I got the whole stack for $7. Now I can farm, fish, sew some nifty 60’s clothes and make some 40’s handicrafts. Sweet.
