Wow! The thrifts were awesome this last weekend and one little estate sale rocked my world! Holy cow, I so needed that. It was totally cathartic to just poke around a nice estate sale run by cool people, and to thrift with The Mom. My brain feels level again. So without further dithering, on to the vintage goodies. Put on your shades, it's going to get bright and colorful. :-)
Can we take a second to look at that freaking afghan?! It's perfect and gorgeous and going to the booth along with the globe. And if you know me, you know I DON'T WANT TO DO IT! Can't keep everything...damnit. The suitcase and pillow cases came from the estate sale and will be staying with me. I'm gonna be like Oprah and change my pillow cases every night just so I can use my fabulous growing collection! Hahaha!!!
The Mom and I spent most of Saturday thrifting and goofing off. We had so much fun! And yup, that's another Fire King Jadeite swirl bowl. I was gifted one a few weeks ago, but this one was thrifted (I know, I was surprised too). The other swirl bowl came from the estate sale. I imagine if I had gotten there earlier, I would have found all kinds of good glassware. Oh well. The Honeysuckle Pyrex is going to the booth. And I just couldn't resist the design on these Melmac plates. So retro!
These fabulously bright guys all came from the estate sale. Normally these don't move well, but Martha Stewart Magazine did a little feature on ceramic planters, so they'll probably sell now...
That balloons crewel piece sat at the thrift store for what seemed like forever, and I just couldn't let it be neglected anymore. It's huge, cheery and wonderfully bright. A perfect addition to my sun room. The little floral bag is dang near perfect and currently for sale on Instagram for a bit, then moving to Etsy.
How cool is this little set?! So many funny expressions! I wanted to keep it, but decided to list it on Etsy instead. We need a bigger house to keep all the things!
Hold up...seriously!? This was still at the estate sale on the last day. That's nuts! This paint by number was done really well and framed nicely too. It will go to the booth where it will probably sit for a while, but I just couldn't leave it behind.
I wouldn't have bought the little purse if it had been made with something other than barkcloth, which I'm kind of a sucker for. It's going to get taken apart and used for a project. And keys, glorious keys!!! Do you see a super cool key wind chime in my near future too? ; )
And that's not even all of it!!! Like I said, it was a great weekend! I'll share more in a week or so.
We're eagerly awaiting for Spring's arrival around here. We keep getting teased with nice days between the yucky days and we're pretty much over it. I'm excited to start some yard work and possibly a garden. Has spring sprung in your area, or is it being sassy for you too?
I'm joining the parties at Sir Thrift A Lot, Mod Vintage Life, The Thrifty Groove, A Living Space, Ivy And Elephants, The Cottage Market, We Call It Junkin', The Colorado Lady and Apron Thrift Girl. Have a great week everyone!
