Thrift Store Score- vintage lock boxes

One of my favorite things to do is treasure hunt at thrift and antique stores!  
A few weeks ago I totally scored at Goodwill!
I posted about my finds on instagram.  

I finally got around to using those awesome lock boxes (top, left photo) in my home.  

I used them as lamp stands on my media console.  

This lock box is a true treasure!  I got it a few years ago from my grandmother.  
It even has a paper inside with her handwriting!  It's super scratched, bent and beat up.  
Just the way I like 'em!!  

This is one of the lock boxes I found at Goodwill.  
It's not quite as beat up as the other one, but I like it all the same!

I stacked the other lock boxes on a different piece of furniture to hold a lamp.  

As for the other items in this photo, I'm starting a new collection 
of wooden cutting boards. 
 I'm not sure what I will do with the tool box, but I've learned over time to 
grab anything you love when you see it at the thrift store 
because it probably won't be there when you go back.  

How do you feel about shopping at the thrift store?  Had any luck scoring some deals?
