Thrifting Frenzy


Even in the dead of winter, the thrifts haven't disappointed!

My favorite find of the last month......


The mister calls this my bag-lady cart.  And I can't really argue with him.

Not that you'll see me wheeling it down a sidewalk.

My second favorite find.......


You already know I'm ga-ga for all things Pendleton.

This wool shirt fits like a glove!  Already washed and worn.

And the hanger?  I never pass up old wooden hangers.  Especially when they are marked with a location.

*   *   *   *

Other goodies that I may or may not be able to part with.......


From quilt tops to vintage mesh purses.  Bridal shower invites to clocks.

All things I don't need.

But what if I neeeeed to throw a bridal shower.  Wouldn't I neeeeed to still have those darling vintage invitations at my fingertips?

And who doesn't want to drink coffee from a mug marked VIP?

The coffee will probably taste even better in it!

Maybe I'll put a clock in the booth to make up for all the things I might keep.

  3. Nice stuff! You have such a good eye for vintage finds. I am completely jealous of your bag-lady cart and want one myself. But I probably WOULD haul it down the sidewalk, so maybe it's better that I don't have one?? ;) I think it'd be great for hauling stuff at estate sales.

    1. I agree! One time I had a pile that I needed an armed guard for! This cart would have made it much easier!

  4. Okay, not only do we share a love of vintage towels (creepy or not), but also of wooden hangers with places stamped on them! That shirt is fab, and those invitations--wow! I hope you get to use them at some point! Great scores, lady!
