Thrifting Frenzy


Time for a thrift report.

New in the booth........



New with original tag ($59) still attached (that I'm keeping and only paid $3.98 for).........



For a gallery wall I've conjured up in my mind............



And lastly, two new collections that I can't seem to part with............




Everyone needs vintage spools and compotes.

Especially if you have a hoarding problem.

And have no room for new collections that you can't seem to part with.

Yes, especially then.

  1. Love the new spindle collection! Of course I can't agree enough with the compotes. Compotes for every room are quite necessary.

  9. You see, this is why I'd never make a very good dealer. I can't part with anything either.

  15. What incredible finds. The clothes are pure perfection. The shirt with the bow, adorable. The sweater, I want to cuddle up while wearing that. I can't wait to see your gallery wall...that piece is definitely a great start. And, your collections...I feel you. I have things that I am finding I have to collect that I have NO room for either. Don't let that stop you. Your newest collections are great.

  16. How funny--earlier today I literally had my 3 spools in my hand to put in the consignment store box....and then I had to put them back, I just couldn't do it! I haven't displayed them in a few years yet I can't stand the thought of getting rid of them. I might NEED them one day, you know?

    Although I am pleased to admit I did actually sell 2 of them at market on Saturday. Wonders never cease.
