This has been a week full of surprises and great opportunities. I was searching around craigslist for vintage furniture during the week and came across an opportunity I could not pass up. The advertisement was for a vintage waterfall styled vanity that came from the 1930's and not only came with the mirror but a matching chair as well. It was a bargain for the listed price; I couldn't resist this buy. Dave did me the HUGE favor of picking it up for me with the help of a friend. I'm so grateful for his help as he did it on his day off work and without the help of his friend, who happened to drive a car big enough to transfer, it would have been pretty impossible for me to acquire this awesome piece of furniture. I had been using a dingy bookcase that I purchased at Target years ago to store my girly vanity items and was a little concerned that it wouldn't all fit in the vanity; but everything fit perfectly and I was even left with some more room to grow :)
This weekend was the bi monthly Big Frocking Sale at Frock You. I wasn't sure if I was going to have time this weekend to check out the sales as I have been pretty busy at work with the deadline, but with a little luck I had some time Sunday morning not only to check out the sales but have brunch with some friends before heading to work...yes on Easter.
My hual consisted of a very cute vinyl black purse with bamboo styled lucite handle, a plaid maid's uniform from the 60's, and bangles. All good buys and I spent under $25 for it all.
After a little time at the office, Dave and I ended up driving to the Bali Hai for some appetizers and Tiki drinks. We explored Shelter Island before calling it a day.
Till next time,
