Style Spots: It's Rummage Time

Happy Monday, all! How was your weekend? Saturday was a crazy-busy day for me. I got up at 6 a.m. to meet my mom at a biannual church rummage sale that is by far the best in the city. We always find goodies there, and this time we thought we'd get there on time to see if we could increase our odds. After that we stopped by a couple estate sales in the city before meeting up with some friends to go to garage and estate sales in Kirkwood.

By the time I got home, I had an hour to rest before heading to the park for a friend's birthday party. The weather took a turn while we were there, and by the time we left a couple hours later, it was to the sound of tornado sirens (eek). I had just pulled onto our street when golf-ball-sized hail started pouring from the sky, and I was shocked none of them shattered my windows (although I know several people whose cars did not escape unscathed). I was pelted several times on the run to the front door, and we'll just say it wasn't pleasant. Once inside, we spent about an hour in the basement until the weather report said the coast was clear. A quick dinner after that, and I think I passed out around 9:30 p.m.

But I did find lots of goodies that morning. Shall we take a look?

Who can pass up smiley face stickers from the '70s?

More Thrifted Kitchen fodder: A box of Betty Crocker Library recipe cards.

A Polaroid Land Camera, Model 150, in really, really good shape.

Another Pyrex Flameware piece, which means I have two now,
which means I officially have a collection going. :)

A baby blue Samsonite travel/train case, for sale.

Some tin gold birds that can be hung on the wall, for sale.

A pair of cute brown velvet boat shoes, conveniently in my size.

A caramel/camel-colored travel bag, for sale.

A cobalt blue glass tumbler.

Set of four glasses with white antelope (one glass is a straight cylinder and three are the more conical), for sale.

A men's red blazer with white buttons...great the for the summer (size 39 regular), for sale.

An old jar opener.

Another great vintage purse, for sale.

This vintage purse, for sale, is my favorite: You can adjust the height by clipping it onto three different levels of clasps.

And a white Pyrex pie plate.

And that's the show! How about you? Find any goodies this weekend?

    1. Thanks, Alex! I'm going to see if I can either find some old film for it, or a way to tweak it to fit today's instant film. If not, at least it will look cool on the shelf, right? :)
