The two weekends prior to this past one, I did some very heavy thrifting, y'all. I was going to estate sales Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and thrift stores in between. Now, after being ravaged at Craftoberfest, Holly is filled to the brim with cute vintage clothing, accessories and home decor for the fall and winter. Unfortunately, I've already moved all that stuff to the trailer, so today I'm going to share the wares and accessories I kept for myself, and Friday I'll share the wearables.
Here we go!
|Found another ceramic animal head. This guy with go great with Elsie and Figaro in the kitchen! :)|
|There was one sale I went to twice, where there were literally hundreds and hundreds of cookbooks |
for next to nothing. Needless to say, I have tons of Thrifted Kitchen material now. :)
|I found the top of a quilt made with vintage fabrics that just needs some batting|
and a bottom. Should be a good weekend sewing project for the winter!
|I haven't bought myself a purse in a while, but this worn-in plum one was just calling|
my name. And the straps are the perfect length, too. Not too short or long.
|This hat caught my eye in a crowded estate sale, and I just fell in love.|
|Two Vera sightings: a silk scarf and a set of handkerchiefs sewn from one of|
her fern designs.
|Some really lovely vintage fabric from a sale where the basement was full of craft|
supplies. I was good and left some things behind for once. :)
|Two cute entertaining things: drink tags that fit over the rim of the glass and a|
set of "frutti" party picks!
|A couple vintage sewing patterns (I want to make that shorter cape) and a Singer sewing book.|
|Two pairs of elbow-length gloves, which is perfect because my two vintage coats|
have sleeves that are 3/4 length.
|And a roll of some crazy shiny wallpaper and Christmas tree tape.|
On a side note, I've had some of you asking if Holly and I will be venturing out during the snowy days ahead, and the answer is: possibly. I have three shows booked through the end of the year, one this Saturday and two in early December. In between, on Small Business Saturday (the Saturday after Thanksgiving), I'll most likely pull the trailer out on the curb where I store her and have her open for business (more details to come). Depending on how that goes, I might keep doing that on Fridays thereafter. But you all can always shop by appointment as well, so just send me an email! :)
