|"Susie" by Goddard, Museum Print Edition|
This past Tuesday, I decided that I needed an entire day of thrifting. So after mapping out a trip to three thrift stores in the Souderton and Montgomeryville area, I hit the roads with a friend and without a budget in mind.
The first stop was The Care and Share, which is literally a shopping plaza of thrifting. Each thrift store within is conveniently divided by departments. Of course we browsed the books and oohed and ahhed at the vintage furniture.
But it was in the variety thrift shop of The Care and Share that I scored this lovely "Susie" print which now sits atop my dresser.
|6 records. SIX. Guess how much!|
24 Groovy Greats LP
Blondie: Autoamerican LP
Iron Butterfly: In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida LP
Carole King: Music LP
The Kinks: Low Budget LP
Stevie Nicks: The Wild Heart LP
All six albums for $1.50!!!
|Ooooooh, a pretty peacock.|
The cheapest find of the day did have a close contender. While I love, love, love this turquoise necklace and bracelet set from the Salvation Army, this skeleton key tray was one hella cool find...on sale for 39 cents!
Like my newly acquired vintage art, this tray is staying right on my dresser.
|Now, isn't that dreamy?|
I wasn't necessarily looking to spruce up my dresser, but that's exactly what happened. What I was really hoping to find was a nice addition to my Spring wardrobe. But instead I got a pile of tunes, a colorful costume jewelry set, vintage decor and...
|Freud for me and The Doors is a gift.|
...a few good books. I rested my favorite coffee mug on top, which wasn't thrifted but a thoughtful gift that I love.
I scored all this stuff when I was just looking for some clothes. But considering the quality of the haul and the teensy weensy price tags, I'm quite satisfied.
Vintage "Susie" print: $2.25
Six assorted LPs: $1.50
Turquoise peacock necklace with matching bracelet: $5.00
Skeleton key tray: .39
Paperback books: $3.00
Three yards of vintage fabric: $3.25
Wait a second. Where did the vintage fabric with the floral print go? Has anyone seen the fabric I bought for my photo backdrop?
Oh, there it is!
Oh, there it is!
|Silly rabbit, vintage is for thrifters.|
What have you conquered from the thrift store?
