I love thrift stores. My husband hates them. He thinks they smell funny. He never sees anything he would like to buy. "Just a bunch of junk."
But he just doesn't have an eye for the good stuff. I love vintage. I love retro. I believe every household should have a healthy costume collection. And I love finding unique decorating items.
I had a lot of fun at the thrift store this week! Here are my super-cool finds:
#1. A custom made wool dress from the 60's! Bright ORANGE!!!
It just fit my daughter.
She put on some gogo boots and got a little GROOVY!
Here is another place you can look at groovy 60's clothes and patterns.
#2. A delicate handmade cornucopia from Italy.
I can't wait for next Thanksgiving's table decor!
#3. Rockin' 70's Rainbow Suspenders. (Who doesn't want a pair?)
#4. A Danish Modern Bird Candelabra.
I absolutely LOVE anything Danish modern. And this my favorite find.
(You can find some other versions here.)
Once I get it oiled up and filled with candles, I will find the perfect place to display it.
Not a bad day for vintage fun!
