Thrift Haul

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!
That’s all for the last post in February….
