3 favorite recent thrift finds

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

1 //  So stoked to find this! We have a whole bunch of the Merry Mushroom collection all ready and it matches out kitchens color scheme so this little tea pot is an absolutely perfect addition. Kevin and I always had an ugly little pot on the stove for tea and hot chocolate but now we have this!! It was kind of dirty looking when we found it but washing it up came to show that there isn't even a scratch on this beauty. Quite a steal for $3!
2 // This gorgeous camera is a great addition to my collection! It came in an awesome carrying case with all the manuals, a flash and some other odds and ends. The bellows are so ridiculously clean that I've been storing it in the case instead of on the shelf with all my other cameras because I don't want it to get dusty!
3 // This is one of the three awesome vintage coats I mentioned in an outfit post last week. It's the most beautiful mint color (so sad photos didn't properly capture that!) and it fits like a dream. It's kind of a light jacket so it won't get much, if any, wear until the spring, I can't wait though! It was only $5!
Have you found anything awesome lately? Because of the holiday rush I haven't had much time to thrift and most of the local estate sale companies are taking a little break until 2012. I'm looking forward to getting back in the groove!

  8. fantastic finds! That camera is AMAZEBALLS!

    Recently, I got some amazing finds at a store called "Hoarder's World" in Milwaukee. I bartered with the owner and for just $7 I got a vintage INSTAX camera, a set of retro 1970s recycled Christmas cards that were never used, and a set of slides!

  13. That teapot is just adorable! $3 is more than a steal for that thing! That polaroid looks awesome but kind of terrifying to operate.
