Thrifting Frenzy


I really should be pinching pennies right now, especially since the holiday season is looming.  And the mister's birthday is in a few weeks.

But I can't seem to avoid the thrifts.  I'll go all week without stepping foot in one.  Then the weekend hits, and I just have to.

Good thing I didn't resist because I found some goodies........


That suit is a vintage Pendleton.  It was $3.00.  EEEEEEKKK!

And finally, a lamp for only $3.98........


That I really did plan on selling.

But then I noticed that I had the perfect spot for it........


Atop my wardrobe!  The finishing touch.

Vignette complete!

The special room is getting special-er by the day.

  5. I know what you mean, I go to the thrift store and tell myself "that's all for a while" but then I am back the next week scoring more great finds!

  12. Oh I am so jealous! The deer are so adorable. The lamp and that suit. Oh who am I kidding. I love it all! I really want to thrift shop, but just does not have the time and if I have the time, the thrift shops near us are also close. Oh my dear! Great finds. :)

  13. Love the deer (and the little guy peeking in from the floor! :) Also, loving that Pendleton suit. I have a couple of those myself that I planned to sell, but have managed to hold onto instead.

    And, I feel your struggle with staying out of the thrifts. I think I, too, need an intervention.

  14. I have your turquoise typewriter's cousin on my desk right now. Not that I type or anything, but it looks cool and worldly sitting there. I think my favorite is your Christmas bells though. I love plastic holly leaves and berries for some reason.

  16. Super finds! I love vintage Christmas items and I collect deer so I am especially drawn to them - will you be selling them and if so, are you interested in shipping to another Missourian? That lamp looks perfect atop your wardrobe really plays off the colors in the globe!

  20. I know the feeling about penny pinching but sometimes it's hard to resist. You found some great things. My favourite item has to be the lamp especially seen as though you found such a perfect home for it.
