This Week's Thrifting Finds!

This week I have been all over the place, the weather has been super-icky...first too hot, then cool and damp, now its hotter than Haities again and so humid I can barely stand it....oh, how I am so looking forward to the Fall! But nasty weather and all, could not stop me from my thrifting. Here are a few of my finds for this week:

This gorgeous vintage queen-size chenille bedspread was found at a resale shop that was having a "bag sale" - all you could stuff in a paper bag for $1.00 (and believe me, I know how to pack it in! :) It is in mint condition, and has blue and green flowers on it, along with beautiful fringe all around. It took up the whole bag, so it was all of $1.00 - yeahhhh!

Next came some jewelry finds from a yard sale, these were in a plastic bag along with a bunch of other stuff for $1.00, I was thrilled when I went through it all. I think the pin in the lower right corner may be bakelite!

A sweet black and red vintage dangle necklace from Hong Kong, and a little enamel pin of a rose - all from the same bag of jewelry.


At another sale I found these adorable miniature vintage Japanese ceramic shoes, they are too cute! The smallest ones are barely one inch, and the other ones are no bigger than an inch and a half. The lady said she may have more of them, so she will look and put them aside for me if she does. They were 10 cents each pair!!!


Now I almost tripped over my own feet when I went into one of my usual resale shops and found this darling vintage set of dishes with a barnyard theme - cows and chickens, what more could you ask for? :) This whole set was only $1.25 - I ran with them so fast to the counter!!


And I got lucky with a tin full of colorful old buttons, which I will be using in my crafting projects - 25 cents for the tin!

Your right, those red cherries are bakelite I can tell by looking at it. I have seen one like it before in a necklace, you got a great deal on everything you bought.

I truly believe that we have reached the point where technology has become one with our lives, and I am fairly certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as memory becomes less expensive, the possibility of uploading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could see in my lifetime.
