Thrifting Frenzy


I've been holding out on you.  I've been thrifting up a storm and not sharing my finds.  I tease you with sneak peeks then forget to take pictures.

Well, wait no longer!

Pleated skirt (with belt loops - yes, that's important).  Belts in coral and royal blue (two of my current fave colors).  And a travel case..........



Three vintage blouses...........two with polka dots..........one striped............two with neckties......



And a hodgepodge of goodies.........



Plant stands, Pyrex, and lamps.  Oh my!

Some of these items are duplicates of previous finds

Now I just have to decide what to keep or put in the booth!

When I find two of something, the decision gets so much easier.

And my garage is suffering for it.

Must work on that.

  2. I think some of those things used to be mine (am I old, or what!). I still have my ties from when we wore them with our blouses. Loved them so hoping they would come back in style. Maybe I'll get to wear them again!!!!

    1. I always have my phone handy to look things up on ebay! That helps! But I also don't like to spend very much, so that keeps me from going crazy on an item!

    2. wow interesting :D Actually a friend of mine told me that sth that was authentically vintage would usually be quite expensive.. but apparently that is a blatant case of bad advice :D But another question: how do you know that something is authentic or not if you have to buy it on ebay?
      Also thnx for commenting on my blog :D I'm glad you like the new look :D :D
