Style Spots: New Finds for a New Year

The weekend of New Year's Eve found me without any estate sales to go to...zero...zilch...nada. Disappointed though I was, I decided it would be a good day to hit my favorite thrifts. I went all over the place, from the city to Webster, to Fenton, up to University City and back, coming home with a nice selection of vintage goodies. Want to see? :)

My new "complete guide to home entertaining" from the 1960s. Some of the text in here is hilarious!

This purse just called to me...from the '90s. But I picked it up. I love the shape and how roomy it is inside.

This little clutch purse is adorable...and headed for the store!

Another purse...love the shade of gray it is and the "shoulders" it has. It'll be going in the store. :)

This dress is really interesting: handmade, definitely '60s, and has a great button and pleating detail in the back.

Stripey dress (size 18 in case you're interested!).

This little guy is a sugar holder! Has a opening on the side of his head for a spoon handle to rest. Really heavy, too.

A vintage red Rolfs wallet, brand spanking new (still has all the placeholder cards inside).

And how about a nice red poncho to go with that wallet (and the gray purse...they're all cute together!).

I know I said I'd only be doing three posts, but I still have a lot of stuff to show you, so I'm going to do one more tomorrow to show you what I picked up this past weekend. One of the things I brought home has quickly made the kitchen my new favorite place to work, and some I've had my eye on for months! Can't wait to share! :)

  4. What kind of history do you know about the sugar holder. I just picked one up from a thrift store this weekend and found your blog while researching..

    1. Hey Emily!

      I've since learned that this could also be a condiment/relish jar, and possibly made by Ted Arnold Ltd., although I haven't looked up much about that company yet. Let me know if you find anything else out about it! Would love to know more!
