Thrifting Frenzy


Christmas break thrifting was good.  I found some things to keep and sell.  And then there are always the things I'm torn over.

Undecided........


All the plaid things.  That is the only reason.

*   *   *   *

Selling.........


This is already in the booth!  Get to Relics NOW to make it yours!

 *   *   *   * 

Keeping (for now).........


Because I see these marked pretty high.........and I always keep metal/wire baskets!



It's already in the living room with a plant perched on top.



Plaid binder ~ keeping.  Maybe I'll use it for organizing printed recipes or something.  The towel is part of a growing collection.  Vintage floral towels folded and placed in wire locker baskets for the newly installed laundry room shelves make me happy. 



Because it looks like a Burberry scarf.  And I've always wanted one.  I've even worn it already.

New Year's Resolution to not be a hoarder:  1 (cardigan)

Me:  6 (everything else)

That's a bad start.

  3. Love the metal basket. I have a goal this year that if I want to keep something, I need to pick something to sell first. It's been a little hard and we are only day 20 into this. Ha!

  4. I have 4 or 5 of those metal dairy crates. I stacked 3 of them in my booth to display things but they are definitely not for sale! I have a serious hoarding problem, too!

  5. I am also loving the vintage towels- I use the large size in my bathroom as hand towels and they are SO MUCH NICER than anything that is produced today!! Good luck on the resolution! ;)

  7. Haha my resolution ratio is pretty similar so far too.

    But I have to agree with you, I love tartan (love that blue fabric) and that metal cage is gorgeous.

  10. I am addicted to plaid pearl snap western shirts and even though I have an entire section of my closet dedicated to them, I still manage to bring at least one home from the thrifts every week. What is wrong with us?!

    Love that wire basket. It has so many possibilities. I have two in my bedroom that I painted and they hold my stacks of vintage tablecloths.

    Have an awesome week!

    2. I DO! I attempted to add you. I never use it and don't know if I know how! HA! Teach me!

    3. I have no idea either! It just seems prudent to learn... Just in case, right? I figured it would be easier if there were folks I enjoyed interacting with. :-)

    4. HA! YES! I appreciate that you enjoy interacting with me! That makes my very long day!

  13. What great finds. Love the plaid binder. I didn't even know they existed. Love the scarf and the towels. I'd keep the wire basket too.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I would have kept all those things too! Ugh, it's so hard not to be a hoarder when you find so much cool stuff all the time! I have one of those wire basket crate things too. I love it!

  15. Hoarding, schmoarding. It's "collecting!" ;) I am jealous of the faux Burberry and I LOVE the floral towel! I "collect" those, too.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm of the opinion that all things plaid should ALWAYS be kept :)

  17. Those wire baskets are getting harder to come by. That one looks like a very useful size.

    The wonderful thing about being a dealer is that we can enjoy things now and if we grow tired of something just throw it in the booth.
