A Few of My Favorite (Thrifted) Things
Thursday, October 19, 2006
Ah yes. It looks like yesterday's post will likely be tomorrow's post (or possibly even Monday's post) and we apologize for getting you all riled up and not delivering. Sometimes these things happen. But rest assured, very fun stuff is in the works!
As a consolation prize, today we present some of our personal favorite finds from the trip thus far. I don't think I've set foot in a single mall or non-secondhand/discount shop (except for Target, of course, because you can't not go to Target, especially when some of the cute Paul & Joe stuff is discounted down to $3. Score!) I've mostly been trying to hold off until my pilgrimage up to New York later this afternoon, because I know I will not be able to resist the charms of Brooklyn's fantabulous shops. And so… where was I? Oh, yes, my favorite thrifted finds thus far, in no particular order.
First, the Kelly green wire egg holders above. Never mind that I don't really eat eggs. I still love them.
Now, a peek at the most amazing little dress, scored in a local vintage store. Peter pan collar, eggshell-ish blue and white print, perfect condition. It's a little bit overly mini, so I'm pairing it with jeans and ballet flats for now. But oh. my. God. It's so instantly wonderful, it was all I could do not to jump up and down and squeal with excitement.
And! For my desk, an old-school crank pencil sharpener, something I haven't seen since about fourth grade.
This lacy, daisy-print tablecloth is a classic vintage piece.
How amazing is this red and black carpet bag clutch? I am slightly obsessed with vintage clutch purses and this one has to be one of the best I've ever uncovered.
