First off, I'm having a giveaway & if anyone would like to participate you can find the info H E R E ... c'mon, free vintage stuff! Who wouldn't want to win?
Thrifting lately has been pretty fruitful. Lots of sweet & silly kitsch, tons of Mid Century housewares & SO many children's books to make me smile. I attribute this good luck to the weather; lots of folks spring cleaning equals tons of donations for our local non-profits.
5 of the 7 thrift shops in my little town are non-profits & thankfully we have a charity minded population. The only one I won't shop at or donate to is the Salvation Army, I don't agree with their politics or how they choose to exclude some members of the population based on their sexual orientation.
Anyhow ... here are a few of my favorites from the past week, some will stay with me, some will make their way into the shop.
|The graphics on this box are great & that little figurine will sit on the shelf next to my mini red vintage Woodstock accordion.|
|A vintage hound in wonderful houndstooth fabric, a unique milk glass dish with green platonite interior, & a crocheted pot holder.|
|She was hiding in a frame behind a blank piece of paper, we took the frame apart to paint it & there she was. It's an 8x10, I just love the scalloped edge of her hat & that dress is perfection.|
|Surprise, surprise. A few little 1950s books in near mint condition. The two in the middle are by the same artist, Anne Sellers Leaf, one of my favorite illustrators & these are two I don't have.|
|The inside covers of The Bedtime Book make me swoon.|
He's down at the shop getting his room set up today, I am home watching Fresh Beat Band with Sequoya Rose & after we pick up Maddy from school this afternoon we are going to go swimming. I've got to get myself down to try on new swim suits now that the pool is ready for the season.
