Vintage Love


Not thrifted, but vintage...


That I paid way too much for on eBay.

But that I love.

It's turquoise people.  

What about my old scale?


That I paid way too much for on eBay.

But that I love.

It's green and turquoise.  An irresistible combo.

I should not be allowed to play on eBay anymore.

Auctions are bad.  Especially when you're determined to win.  And the cap you set gets bypassed because you are outbid.  So you exceed your pretend limit.

I should probably stick to thrifting.

Which I did a little of this last week when I found this precious thing for only $7.50.....


I knew taking off the nasty red vinyl cover would result in shabby table perfection.......


So shabby tables fall on my irresistible list too, I guess.

Along with vintage dish towels ($1.98 each).....


But I swear the towels will go in my antique shop booth. 

Probably.

I keep reminding myself that they do not match my kitchen.

They do not match my kitchen.

  1. Love the fan.

    I always say, "what's another $5? I'm already this far." if I'm outbid and at my cap, even though I told myself that I wouldn't bid any higher.

  2. Hahaha you're so right about bidding! There's something about having to WIN that makes me throw all my sanity and budget right out the window. This is why I haven't been on eBay in quite some time!

  3. I've never had the eBay itch. I love the fan! And that stool has great potential. I'm picturing a fabulous fabric from the FM store.
