On the way to that sale, I passed Unique Thrift Store, which has been on my list for some time, but I've never gone because it's way north. So I headed there afterward and was really impressed by the size and the organization of it. It had loads of clothing and shoes, and all the home decor was neatly showcased on the shelves and in plastic bags that hung above them. After wandering up and down the aisles, here's what a snatched from there...
|A super cute vintage suitcase...|
|And a Vera Neumann tablecloth with mums.|
I started to head back home after that, stopping at Value Village in Kenrick along the way. I found some books I've been wanting to read (including a Jodi Piccoult book...anyone else an avid reader of her work?) and this awesome Samsonite travel bag in a gorgeous shade of gray...
Then Sunday, mom and I hit up four other estate sales, in which I found these gems...
|Some cute vintage belts...|
|Some vintage black-and-white fabric.|
|More vintage fabric.|
|Another vintage flannel shirt for moi.|
|Oh, and more vintage fabric. :) This one is 100% cotton, with white and gray stripes. |
Reminds me a lot of the towels they're selling at West Elm right now.
|One more bit of fabric...|
|Hundreds of handwritten recipes, providing lots of fodder for The Thrifted Kitchen.|
|And a vintage mustard leather purse.|
Last night we went over to my grandma's for dinner, and on the way out passed by her retirement community's "free table." On it I spotted this guy...
I'm going to give him a nice glossy coat of white (or perhaps a fun color...which one do you think would look cute?) to update him a bit, then add a cylinder shade. Welcome to your new home, Owlie! :)
And that's that for this week. How about you? Any fun scores this weekend?
