Good art is hard to find while thrifting. Most art collectors hold onto pieces forever or sell them (rather than donate) so if you come across a good piece, buy it. Buy it even if you have second thoughts because I guarantee if you leave the store, it will always be on your mind.
We used to have a rule about not buying art or pictures but I fell in love with an original painting that I could not pass up and now I'm always on the hunt for paintings, prints, figures and frames.
Our price point is $5 and under, we usually won't spend more than $10 on frames, art or figures. It would have to be an amazing piece to break our rule.
Even if you can't find a work of art - try upcycling. Use Pinterest to inspire you!
What type of art and figures do you collect?
I found this framed, signed and numbered Todd Bratrud print at Goodwill.
This framed, signed and numbered print by John Luke Eastman was actually 50% off! One of my new faves in our collection!
This is an original painting by EIKO - I haven't been able to find any information online or from friends so if you know anything, let me know! I love it more than everyone else in our family - was a steal at only $4!
Another original painting - it wasn't signed so I have no information on the artist but I love it just the same! I think it was $2-3.
I'm a huge fan of ornate frames - this plastic one caught my eye! Was only .98
I don't care for cats but I'm a huge fan of white ceramic figures. It's a great size and was only $1.99
This was a double score - white ceramic figure and Our Lady of Guadalupe! I love religious figures but very picky on which ones I buy.
Found this at Goodwill too. It's a framed print but have no information on the artist - looks vintage. So adorable!
