Thrifting Adventures


I've been bringing home some goodies lately........


I found........a metal Aladdin lunchbox, an Anchor Hocking refrigerator jar, a Big Beam flashlight, two Avon perfume bottles, and a neato lidded something.  The base and lid handle look like they could be mercury glass.  Educate me if you know what it is!

I've been hitting the clothing racks too........


That dress.  It just makes me smile.  I love the print of the fabric.  The bodice has the sweetest little buttons.

This skirt has a pocket!  And I love the pearly buttons down the front.....


 Oh this sweater.  I die......


Now here's where you might question my judgement a bit.

Or maybe you already have.

Anyway.........


It was basically love at first vintage coat sight.

Maybe I should try it on for you..........


The chevrony stitching.

The cuffs!

The double collar!!

The pink buttons!!!

THE CHEVRONY STITCHING!

I might even like it more than my thrifted leather coat!

GASP!

Am I completely off my rocker?

  8. Awesome finds! I think I know what your lidded bowl is but I'm not completely sure I'm correct. I'll look through one of my reference books :)

  9. The coat fools you for sure. It looks like a strange choice on the hanger, but it looks great on you. But your leather jacket is awesome too... Torn!!!

  12. I LOVE the "neato lidded something." No idea what it is, but it's so pretty. :) And I agree that the chevron stitching is fabulous! Nothing is better than the leather coat, but this is a very close second!

    The coat though...chevron stitching...hmmm... ;-)

  26. Just found you via Lara's Thrifty Thursdays Link Party. I love that you call it a "neato lidded something." It is cute, looks like something a genie would come out of. What are you going to use it for? I can totally see it being a candle holder and making a candle in it. Also I love the polka dotted skirt with the pocket, that sweater is rockin' and loving that jacket! Great finds!

  27. The pattern on that dress is AMAZING! I also happen to be a fan of that style of vintage winter coat. Added bonus, they are usually super warm. A lot of them have zip off sleeves too!
