On Friday, I found out I was accepted as a vendor to Indie Craft Revolution here in St. Louis. I'm super excited because it'll be my first time selling things. Now I just have to kick it into high gear and build up the vintage inventory and start making some accessories that I've had brainstormed for quite some time.
On Saturday, my mom and one of our long-time family friends went thrifting most of the day, and I got to explore some thrift stores that were new to me. We scored some great deals thanks to coupons for St. Vincent de Paul.
Then, yesterday, as my Valentine's Day present from the hubs, we went thrifting from about 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., which is a very self-sacrificing move for him. He mostly sat on a couch at each store and read a book that he pulled off the shelves while filled my cart. We used St. Vincent coupons again (scoring an amazing Lane coffee table and end tables set for a great price), and everything was 50% off at all the Value Villages. So I ended up with a ton of inventory, and some great furniture pieces for our new home (we finally settled on one! But more on that later...). Here's the haul I ended up taking home!
|A beautiful tin and copper cake plate/cover|
|Some vintage napkins and fabric|
|A couple kitschy items|
|Three awesome leather bags|
|A couple Fire King hobnail pieces and some white vases|
|A pair of mod cafe curtains|
|A pair of 70s butterfly glasses|
|Polaroid Land Camera (the Automatic 220) to add to my growing vintage camera collection :)|
|More Butterfly Gold pieces for the set we're collecting. The mugs are Pyrex and the plates are Corelle.|
|A beautiful leather Hartmann Luggage piece...|
|With an amazing fabric on the inside|
|A stack of vintage luggage (the Hartmann, a Samsonsite, a Sears & Roebuck and a Skyway piece)|
|Lovely shoes to add to the craft show inventory...|
|A mustard ottoman (on wheels!) for our new home|
|This gorgeous minty chair and ottoman set for our new home (will be my reading chair!) :)|
|And this awesome old lamp with a heron (or some other bird?) on the top of the base|
|They pair rather nicely together, no? :)|
Such a good weekend! What goodies did you find?
