Thrifting Finds | Wood Pineapple


Wood Pineapple with removeable lid & leaves I got while thrift shopping!

Read my thrifting journey & see the cool wood pineapple I picked up while out thrifting!


I’m a huge thrift shopper.

Like 99% of our home decor is thrifted.  I can probably count on one hand the things in our home that aren’t from the thrift store!

I never really intended to buy everything from the thrift store.  I think the catalyst for my thrifting adventures was the Habitat For Humanity ReStore that opened in our area a few years ago.  We had just bought our house & were constantly in the ReStore picking up building supplies.  Our new house was also a lot bigger than our old one, so we needed quite a few furnishings.  We ended up getting so much stuff from the ReStore & I’m so grateful for that.

After buying from the ReStore, I branched out into buying from yard sales.  Now I would casually stop at yard sales before this, but once we got our house I started stopping at every sale.  You probably already know this, but some places have entire town wide yard sales!  Every time I see a yard sale sign, I have to stop!

These days, it’s pretty much been the thrift store for me!  That’s also because it’s winter where I’m at so yard sales aren’t really going on right now…although we did go to an indoor apartment sale over the weekend!

I thought I would start sharing some of my thrifting finds because I have so many that I love.  Kind of like my ‘ReStore Finds’ posts, but covering all thrifting places!

The first find is this wood pineapple.  I originally shared it last week on my Instagram & since it got such a great response, I’m sharing more photos & information about it!

I’ve had this pineapple for some time.  It was actually one of the things I bought before we got our house.  I love finding unique pieces & this pineapple fit that perfectly!  It has a removeable lid which is so cool!  The leaves are also removeable.  It’s missing a leaf, but I can easily rearrange them so it’s not completely noticeable.

This was originally in our den.  We recently turned that space into our master bedroom so the pineapple was displaced.  I ended up putting it on a small desk we have underneath our staircase & I think it looks so cute there!

I’m looking forward to sharing more of my thrifting finds from now on!  I can’t keep them to myself any longer!
