Style Spots :: The Wares

Guys...I'm so excited to finally get back on track sharing my thrifted finds with you! This fall has been so crazy-busy with taking Holly to shows and whatnot, but now that the season is starting to slow down, I'm looking forward to getting back into the blog and making it better and better. :)

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! :)

  1. Ooo, such lovely finds! I'm going estate sale-ing with a friend this weekend and I'm excited! I'm hoping to find fabrics, kitchen supplies, and maybe some helpful organization/furniture things... and cute clothes, always. :)

    1. Thank you! :) And you are right on target with the wallpaper! It was actually adorning a bathroom door in the house where it came from, outlined in white trim. I should have taken a picture!

    1. Aren't they addicting?? This makes my third, only one of which is finished and can actually be used (oops!). :)
