3 Recent Favorite Thrift Finds...

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Here's another edition of "3 Recent Favorite Thrift Finds", you can see other ones here and here. I'm having so much fun doing these posts!

1 // This gorgeous vintage stool! I found this at an estate sale a few weeks back (I know, supposed to be recent finds, but it's too pretty not to blog about!) when Ivan and Elycia were out visiting. I spotted it in the main bedroom and awkwardly carried it through the rest of the house while we shopped. It's been absolutely perfect to put out feet up on while obsessively playing Zelda this last week.

2 // This stunning vintage cape! Kevin thought that I had been stung by a bug that was hiding in the rack due to the ridiculous noises and foot stomping I was doing when I found this baby. My eyes lit up and I shoved that sucker under my arm, guarding it like someone else in the store would actually steal it from me let alone be interested in it. As if it wasn't already love at first sight the price tag was $2.50 PLUS it had the color tag that Goodwill deemed 50% off that day! SCORE!

3 // We walked into Salvation Army fifteen minutes before closing time last week but somehow managed to grab one massive haul of beautiful dresses but these shoes were definitely the highlight for me. You know I'm a sucker for fun shoes and these are no exception! I seem to have really great luck thrifting shoes *knock on wood* because my shoe size (7.5 or 8) seems to be the most common size I see. It's really rare that I see a pair of shoes at the thrift store that I like that don't fit.
I wore them the next day to an estate sale where a complete stranger complimented what cute shoes they were and told me I had "dainty, little feet" Hah!

Have you found anything awesome lately?

  5. I don't think I could ever pull off that cape, but it's so charming! You'll look great in it. I also dyed my boyfriend's hair like I asked you about and it turned out awesome! Thanks so much for the tips on it.

  20. The thrift stores in the US are so much better than the ones here in Australia. You would never find proper vintage at our thrift stores.
