It’s been a while since I’ve showed off my thrift finds. In two weekends, I ended up finding some cool items. Let’s take a look:
I stopped into Goodwill after dropping off the leftovers from the yard sale I had a few weeks back. I ended up coming home with a few new treasures.
I needed this blue poodle in my life. She found a home in the bathroom with the other 50’s poodles for now. I lucked out in finding this entire set of vintage inspired gurley looking candles. Plus I found this “I DO” shoe sticker for a surprise ball.
Then next door for a whooping $1.16 I found that vintage dress in the clearance center. I love the vintage tag. I tried to research a bit about the time frame it is from, and I think it might be the 60’s? I plan to hang it in my someday home craft studio, where I will channel Jennifer Hayslip! If you aren’t familiar just google her name and her crafting studio. It’s a dreamy, pastel wonderland!
The following weekend, I headed out on Sunday to an estate sale plus a new Goodwill near me. Do you see what they built next to it? This is my kinda shopping plaza.
So I tried out the new one, quite successfully!
Here I found this adorable Garden Tea Party set. It’s not something I would normally be drawn toward, but the set was so adorable and had so much detail that I could hear my grandma warning me I would be upset if I didn’t buy that! I’ll incorporate it into my Easter decor soon. I also got that chicken egg basket, I have to get some fake eggs for it. The tin is actually a set of three. I got them for Christmas cookies, and the box in the back contains little plastic cups for a one bite appetizer. That milk glass bowl already got some use when I made waffles last Monday!
My two porcelain dancers were found at my regular Goodwill. I had the perfect spot for them:
I went to the estate sale first, but for some reason I’m showing what I got last. It was a mansion, and even at 50% off on the last day, things were too rich for my taste. But I got these for really cheap, and I needed this angel food cake pan.
I scooped up that vintage evening bag because it had the matching coin purse still attached. I’ll keep it for a little while, but it might end up in the shop one day!
You can do everything else online? Why not get help designing an event… ammiright? A small spark of this started years back in my head. Cue the wavy dream sequence filter… It was 2008-ish when I started Peachy Keen Party Queen, a children’s event planning business. I loved putting together creative parties, and planning […]
I know, I know. Fashionably late. I have a good excuse though and that’s because I rolled out a new service… which I’ll talk about in next week’s posting. You’ll notice that I’m moving away from the blog a bit and moving towards more services I can offer to make a difference in people’s lives. […]
