I'm starting to see this nonprofit's trend all over the country, and am not totally on board with it. I know it sounds like a reseller who just wants to complain, but I'm thinking more about the people who have shopped at thrift stores and depended on them since before they were trendy. My guess is their incomes haven't gone up like the prices in these stores have, and I really hate to think that they can't get basic necessities like clothes anymore because of this shift.
I did find some good stuff at a couple of Thrift Worlds, and on the way home we stopped just outside Columbia, Mo. (and my college alma mater) to check out Midway Antique Mall...which is huge! I could kick myself for never having gone in the four years I lived in that town. Here's what I brought home from our traveling adventures...
|Some vintage cream boots that I couldn't stop wearing this weekend!|
|Another Samsonite travel bag in a pretty reddish color.|
|A red-and-white floral peasant top.|
|A gorgeous beaded cocktail dress.|
|A lovely teal Glasbake mixing bowl for the kitchen!|
|A brown Pyrex refrigerator dish.|
|A pink Pyrex pie plate.|
|A white hobnail pitcher.|
|Three orange Glasbake soup bowls/mugs.|
|And something I've been trying to find for a very long time: a Pyrex Flameware double boiler.|
So, clearly, this was a vintage kitchenware weekend. I must have Pyrex and Glasbake on the brain!
You turn! What goodies did you find this weekend?
