We ended our summer with a weeks-long vacation on Florida’s Gulf coast.  It was a well deserved rest for my husband, and a wonderful time for our family to reconnect and spend quality time together.

That being said… I was in FLORIDA!!! And hello — there are treasures to be found there!  And I’m not talking about shark’s teeth and seashells!

I managed to sneak out during nap time one afternoon.  I hit a few local thrift stores and left practically sobbing that I didn’t have a way to bring home a truckload of awesome finds.

Florida thrift store brass etageres

Take a look at the above photo.  Not one, but THREE awesome brass etageres!  The one on the far end was this really cool folding-screen-esque etagere.

And this faux bamboo bedroom set (ignore the random shelf on top of the dresser).  Do I even need to say anything about this?!

You should have seen the amount of caned barrel back chairs.  And the gorgeous rattan.  I could go on… But it would depress me to think of all the goodies I left behind.

I did manage to bring back a few smaller pieces.

This elephant family also came back with me – but sadly, he broke his ear along the way.

My husband started to tease me that I was “working” on vacation – but really – work?!  Thrifting is my fun!
