I haven't been thrifting since I got back from our Vegas trip so I figured I'd post some of my recent finds. I have a dentist appointment tomorrow to finally get my tooth filled. Once I get done I'll be hitting up the local thrift stores and see what goodies I come across.
Last weekend we spent the whole day in Reno. We went to get my rings cleaned. They're insured so I have to have them cleaned every 6 months or else the insurance becomes void. We also went to the local swap meet which was really small. We went to the Goodwill on Neil Rd and I found a few items at great prices.
Vintage Fox fur collar $1.99 The cashier let me have it cheap since there was no price tag. :) I really want to find a vintage coat with a fur collar but this will definitely keep me happy for a while.
Vintage Golden Harvest Glass Pitcher $1.99 I love collecting pitches but am really picky about their conditions and style. It was a little dirty on the inside but a good soak with vinegar got rid of all the gunk.
My first piece of vintage Pyrex $1.99 Jesse is always saying while I like glassware. There' s several reasons: 1) I like the weight of it and to me it makes them more stable. 2) They last a long time willing you don't drop them. 3) Fabulous designs.
I also bought a few glasses, a picture frame and a necklace there. It was a great score there.
At Junkie's I just bought one thing. I've been tryng to limit myself to one item that really makes a statement. I haven't bought anything there in a while besides vintage buttons. Until this weekend. I found these awesome Celluloid carved earrings. They have that vintage bone color to them. Like a nice cream color. They're also very light and comfortable to wear.
These guys I bought off of eBay for a steal. I really like the glitter Lucite earrings but they're either in bad conditions or way too expensive. My lovely lipstick holder gal has been modeling them for me. I love her to pieces but my lipsticks don't fit in there. Oh well I'm sure I'll find her a something to do.
This lovely pair of chalk-ware poodles I bought at a local estate sale. I originally wanted to go on Saturday but we spend the whole day in Reno so we went Sunday. I figured all the good stuff had already been bought. Not everything. They were hanging out in the garage and I snatched them up. Since it was Sunday everything in the house was 50% off! Yep I got these puppies for $1.75 for the pair. Jess thought I was gonna sale them. Nope, they're going up in the hallway. I also bought a bag of yarn for $2.50 There were at least six skeins of yarn in there. It was a steal.
As I mentioned in my previous post, while we were in Vegas we went to a swap meet. I love me a good swap meet and this one turned out great. I came across a booth that had a a look of cool looking stuff so my mom and I stopped to check it out. I'm glad we did.
Cute pair of hound dog salt and pepper shaker.
This is the girl dog. You can tell by her blue eyeshadow.
Cute Scottie dog shakers.
Both of these shaker sets are in great condition and have the original plugs
I bought a few near-mind condition vintage sweaters. This sweater is still in package. I washed and dried all of sweaters so they are ready to sell when I get around to it. I bought these two ivory sweater, a blue sweater, and a green wool sweater.
I bought this on a whim because it reminded me of the type of blouses women in the 1950's wore during the summer on the beach. Wish it were my size but I don't think I could ever get that small.
Brand-new with tag garter belt. *sigh* yet another items I wish I could wear.
Mint condition silver clutch. This still has the original stuff to hold it's shape.
A cute vintage women's work shirt. At first I thought it was for a little boy but then I noticed that it has "Helen" on one of the sleeves. I love bowling shirts and shoes.
Not sure if these are men's or women's shoes. They're leather and have never been used. The only down side is that they shoes laces don't match. No biggie.
This dress was hidden in a 3 foot pile of clothing. I love Asian print clothes and I just saw the color of this peaking out. I dug through everything and pulled this beauty out. Mint condition with tag Peony Shanghai dress. It is so gorgeous! Beautiful color and detail. Yet again making me wish I was all petite and tiny.
That booth made my day. I was getting great prices on these items until the man's wife stepped in. It never ceases to amaze me how men will sell items a lot cheaper than women. Oh well. Once I set up a shop, I'm sure they'll sell. I've decided to open an Etsy shop once I figure out a name I like. I've been having a great time finding vintage items and decided that I may as well sell them instead of just letting them collect dust in my closet. Once I get everything set up, I'll let everyone know.
Here's Ridley helping. He decided that the pitcher need to be investigated and given his seal of approval. That cat is so nosy. It's cute.
Has anyone every seen a Disco ball but a saddle? Yup it's a Disco Saddle. Jess took this photo at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno. It's pretty cool. It hangs over the dance floor at the cowboy themed bar. I hope everyone had a great week/weekend. Wish me luck, I'm going to the dentist tomorrow.
