Video // Kaylah and Elycia's Thrift Adventure - The Dainty Squid

Video // Kaylah and Elycia's Thrift Adventure

Wednesday, February 01, 2012

As I mentioned yesterday, Elycia and I kicked some serious butt over the weekend. We made a vlog, wrote a tutorial, took the most awesome outfit pictures and we made this amazing video showing off our day thrifting!
Ivan followed us around Saturday with the camera while we did our thrifting business. After we got back to my house we almost immediately starting editing. All four of us cuddled up around Elycia's computer until midnight when we finally had it mostly done. It was so much fun to make, and help edit.

Hope you enjoyed getting a peek into our day, and seeing me move for the first time ever! Hah!

  1. You guys are sooo cool! Haha that feels so silly to say but I really mean it. Also, I wish we had thriftstores like that in the Netherlands, SO MANY PRETTY DRESSES! I would have bought them all.
    Anyway, I really enjoyed this! Can't wait to see more of your weekend together! xx Anne

  4. What a fun video! I just realized that I need someone who likes thrifting as much as I do to go on adventures with. It looks like a ton more fun with a friend! The filming and editing turned out great and you ladies are as adorable as ever!!

  6. That thrift store looked soo huge. No wonder you always come back with so much stuff.

  7. Ok some thoughts:

    1. I hope you bought that parasol

    2. I am glad that I am not the only one does the "OMG I CAN'T BELIEVE I FOUND THESE BOOTS HERE!" dance in the shoe aisles of thrift stores. Mine, is not as cute though and usually involves me clutching them for dear life and growling at passerbys.

    3. I hope Elycia got that yellowish dress with the ruffles and black buttons.

    4. What thrift store are you at? Sadly ours out here have started lacking in good finds.

    Thanks for the adorable vid!

  8. I absolutely love this video!! So so awesome, you guys did an awesome job at editing! It was amazing to watch this, we don't have any thrift stores in Portugal so I always wondered how it looked like, it was great to take a peak! thanks for sharing, ladies! :)

  9. So cute! You guys did a great job with the video. It really makes me miss thrifting with my best friend in Ohio. The stores here in Wyoming are not the same as Ohio. I collect Vintage Flower Pins, and have never seen that many together like that at a thrift store!! My favorite part of the video is when you fell in love with the blue cowboy boots and the excitement when you saw they were your size! Thanks for staying up till midnight to make such a cute video!

  10. Angel, it's actually a bunch of thrift stores editing into one video! I wish there was one that big!!

    Lizz, sadly, I didn't buy the parasol! I just can't picture myself using it but when I picked it up I did say something along the lines of "I wish I could use this" I'd feel so fancy!


    Thank you guys so much!! <3

    the video is fantastic! really like it!!!!

  12. Oh gosh! This is such a marvelous video! I love to see how people are in real life instead of only see them in pictures. You guys are so cute! And I wish we had thrift stores like those in The Netherlands! In the few thriftstores I've been, they were all messy and not so pretty. :(

    Anyway, you should upload more videos like this! <3 xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm so jealous at how nice your thrift stores are. I saw so many things I would of loved to of picked up. The thrift stores here are small and really terrible compared to yours. Great job with the editing!

  25. So cute you two. This thrift store looks AMAZING. Loved all the fun, funky, vintage prints..

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hey Kaylah!
    So I am totally going to say the same to Elycia, but if ever you and Kevin do come to see her in Canada, you should a) totally do a Canadian version of this video (because it would reveal good thrift places in my neck of the woods, hah!) and b) Come to Niagara-on-the-Lake and check out some of the antique stores with me! NOTL is by the american border, on the way to Hamilton. It's also one of Canada's earliest historic towns, and is SUPER cute in the summers!! No really, all the houses have gingerbread on them, you can walk to have a picnic at lake Ontario, and every store seems to sell gelato. It's pretty rad. I'd show you gals a good time :).

  46. This video was adorable!!

    I can't believe how many vintage items are in your thrift store, I have to dig through the stores around here and sometimes find one item that I might love..

    Anyways, what town are these thrift stores in?? I live in Indiana and it might be worth taking a trip to go thrifting at some great places.. :)

    I've never seen such a collection of vintage dresses and brooches while thrifting!

    ReplyDelete
  47. so lovely! I wish we had thrift stores in the UK. we have charity shops but nothing on this scale! maybe a UK thrift store is my calling... x

    ReplyDelete

  55. You both are even more adorable in video! I loved this. I totally play around in thrift stores and if I find something that I love and its in my size...I do a happy dance too! What was most adorable is seeing your Kevin look at you with so much love when you found your blue boots...his face looked like "ooooh...she's so cute!". :) I love it when my hubby gives me that look! Ha ha! Umm...yep...I'm going to have to find a way to lure you and Elycia out to Michigan! Hearts, Janna Lynn

  58. This video was fantastic!!! Can I honestly say that I am having the hugest envy of your thrift store right now??? We need one of those like that here in Milwaukee. I may just need to go to Ohio just to go to that store!!! Haha. Loved the video, hope to see more stuff like this in the future!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. That was the most adorable thing ever! I just want to pinch your cheeks! And I agree with Rachel, that was quite honestly the most amazing thrift store I've ever seen. Certainly aren't any like that in North Carolina. Well none that I've found anyway.

    I've linked to you quite a few times on my blog. You're even on my sidebar!

  61. Cute video, and to reiterate what eveyone else has said, what an amazing thrift store....I am so completely jealous ♥

    ReplyDelete
  62. You finding the blue boots was quite possibly one of the most adorable things I've ever seen. XD

    ReplyDelete
  63. You are guys are adorable but those thrift stores?! Oh my god! We have NOTHING like that in Australia. Here thrift stores (we call them op-shops) are tiny and you are super lucky to find one vintage dress, let alone a whole rack of them! You guys are so lucky. I'm horribly jealous!

  64. Its nice seeing you smile! :) And I agree with everyone, that Thrift store looks awesome! My thrift store are so picked through, theres never any treasures :/

  65. I've wanted you to make a video FOREVER! :D i'm so glad you did :) i wish we could hear your voice though! :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. super super video :) it was so great to see you, little bit strange, since I use to see you "2D", too bad we couldn't hear your voice.
    and what a fantastic thrift store, my god, i wouldn't get out it ;)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Cool video! That thrift store looks so awesome! Can't wait to see more videos. :D

  69. Ahhhh Sweet Lorain makes my brain explode.

  70. That video was so fun to watch! I can't wait to move. I feel like thrift stores on Long Island kind of reflect Long Island.. which is very.. Long Island?

    My Unique Thrift for instance, is severely lacking in colorful flower broaches and a hat section. I have to say that I was honestly impressed by the vintage Playboy collection I spotted also!

  81. How stinking cute is that vid? You guys are both lovely! As Katie said, above, the thrift/opshops in Australia are really rather bland, and lacking of goodies to find. Its a bit sad really.

    Kaylah, big hi five on the blue cowboys - how rad are they?! Now to head over to Elycia's and ask about that mint bag :)
    Thanks for sharing the video - it looks like an awesome day :)

    ReplyDelete
  95. Speedingblackrain, Haha! Thanks not weird at all! I feel the same way when I watch videos from other bloggers.

    ReplyDelete
  96. HOLY CRAP!!!! Thrift stores are soooooo much more awesome in America than Australia. Like, don't get me wrong, I find my fair share of stuff, but it's mostly just one or two things amidst a pile of crap that nobody wants!!!! I am so jealous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
