Hidden Treasures, Hilton Head Island.......

While visiting my BF in Statesboro a couple of weeks ago, we went thrifting to one of our favorite places, Hilton Head Island!  I know, thrifting on Hilton Head is not something you would normally think of when you think HHI, but OMG, I'm going to let you in on a little secret!  They have the BEST Thrift stores there, and lots of them!  And, best of all, the cheapest prices ever!  Not only are you in one of the most beautiful places, you get to find cool stuff!  The sad part was we didn't have a lot of room to so we couldn't bring a lot back.  VEry sad!!  Maybe next time, I'll get a truck,  it's that good!  Here are a few of the things I did bring home!


Everything at this store was half priced so that made this tureen only $2.50


These cook books were also half price so they were $1.50 each


Brown transferware platter was $3.00




Candle holder, $1.00


This was $2.00


This was $2.00


 Ironstone platter, $2.00


This little picknic basket, $2.00


Little red bucket,  .50 cents


This was $3.00


Now, I'll show you what we didn't bring home and we were verrrry sad!



Can you guess the price?



This cabinet was fabulous and the price, (don't cry, we did) was only $299.00!
Would it not be gorgeous painted black or white!


This lantern was pretty big, fabulous in a dining room or entryway, looked like it came right out of a Restoration Hardware catalog!  Big difference, it was only $69.00!

Are you as sad as we were?

Till next time.......

You must have had sooo much fun! How great to find so many treasures for so little! I have the HARDEST time leaving a great deal behind wish I could rescue it all!

Rebecca, Sounds like you found a wonderful place to go thrifting. Can't believe the price on the china cabinet. Love all your goodies. Such wonderful prices. Glad you had a great trip. I have always wanted to go to Hilton Head and now you make me want to go even more. Have a great Monday.

I wouldn't have thought that Hilton Head would be a great place for reasonably priced thrifting...thanks for the tip! What a great bunch of finds - my favorites are that amazing brown transferware platter and candle holder!

Heather said...

I am totally jealous. I wish I could fit in your suitcase for your next trip there! What fantastic finds and so reasonably priced too. You lucky duck!

Betsy said...

Wow, I should have been there too. You found some fabulous treasures. I love a good thrift store, but it seems like so many of them are getting too expensive these days. Great finds and great prices.
Thank you so much for stopping by and for your sweet comment.

I've never been to HH, but my daughter goes there yearly. I never would have thought they had such great thrift stores.

I had to giggle at the synchronicity - they just had a pair of Fair Winds transferware plates on Antiques Roadshow tonight (it was either Connecticut or Las Vegas, can't remember which episode). Cheers!

I have been wanting to go to HHI and this was perfect timing. I would love to go thrifting but how to get it back home...

Michele Smith said...

You found so many wonderful treasures. Love that tureen!
Looks like you had alot of fun!
have a great day.

Sarah said...

Rebecca, I think I would have rented a truck and carted that hutch back home. Can't believe the price.
You found some great buys. I like to visit thrift stores when I can find them on travels. I used to find great things at a thrift in San Francisco and also Paris. I wish I could remember exactly where they were.

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

Oh my gosh! I live in SC. I'm thinking that I need to go to Hilton Head real soon! You found some real deals.

Sherry said...

Oh, my word these prices are fabulous!!! That platter matches my transferware, I just got a 8 piece place setting of it! That was a great price. I am in love with that pattern. I began to notice every time I went to photograph food, I kept pulling it out and using it. Thanks for linking up and showing up your great finds!
