Booth Update and Lovely Leather

We are in the final stretch of this whole bathroom remodel and I couldn't be happier!  It will be nice to have it done and it will be great to allow the cats in the basement again as they are getting a little cabin feverish being only on the one floor and making me crazy! 
The thrifting has been pretty decent lately.  I've found a few pieces of Pyrex but nothing terribly exciting. Just Spring Blossom, Butterfly Gold and one Flamingo Pink dish.  Those items went right to the booth because Pyrex is selling crazy fast right now.  I wish I could get some of the other smalls to move too.  I did score a huge stack vintage Colorado Springs post cards on Ebay a few weeks ago and stuck a chunk of them in the booth.  They sold fairly quickly which I expected after I put a $1 each tag on them.  They are neat and I want people to enjoy them. 
Sorry for the weird glow caused by the overhead light.  The people at my antique mall call me the Pyrex Girl.   I think it's a pretty cool nickname if you ask me.  : )
My most favorite non Pyrex find this week has to be this vintage tooled leather bag.
Swoon!  Isn't it beautful?  It has that same tooled and painted butterfly design on the back but it is a little bit larger.  The handle of this bag is braided leather and it is buttery soft.  I'm in love with this baby, and will be using it for a little while before I sell it, if I do at all!  So since I found this one, I'm going to sell the one I found a few months ago.  I know a lot of people were interested in it when I posted about it here so I'm going to offer it to my blog friends for $14 (plus shipping) before I list it on Etsy for $18.00.  If you are interested, let me know in the next three days!  I accept PayPal and can send you an invoice.  : )  I'm joining the parties at Apron Thrift GirlSir Thrift A LotSumo's Sweet StuffRemnantYoung Heart Old Soul, The Thrifty Groove and A Living Space.  Have a great rest of your weekend and week everyone!!!
