Favorite Finds: Melodie's Bamboo Bar

Today's Favorite Find comes from Melodie of Pink Cupcake Vintage! We met years ago when I worked with her husband and would run into them occasionally at antique shops. (They helped me decide to buy my first record player years ago at the Tennessee Antique Mall, in fact!)

Throughout the years, I have loved following their adventures (especially Tin Can Treats, their mobile ice cream shop!) and I am pleased to bring you Melodie's Favorite Find.

What is your favorite find and where did you find it?

My favorite find is a white lacquer bamboo bar cabinet that I found for $50.00. If I remember correctly, the hubs and I were killing time in Franklin, so I popped into the Harpeth Antique Mall off 96. I was immediately taken with it since it had 3 of my favorite things. 1) bamboo 2) high gloss white lacquer 3) gold hardware.

Do you do the majority of the decorating in your home?

I would say I do most of the decorating in our home, but Matty definitely weighs in on everything! If it were up to me alone, my house would be even more girly than it is. Matty is such a trooper and is so great about letting me do what I want, that when he makes a special request I make sure I find a way to include it.

You're an avid thrifter, do you have any advice for those who love to thrift?

My advice is buy what you love...even if it takes years for you to find it!

Thanks so much for contributing, Melodie!
