It was actually Dave who spotted this teak kitty to add to my growing "family" of the mid century decorations. At $3, it was a quick and easy purchase.
I have learned after doing this for a while that you always ask for the price! I have been shocked to find how cheaply things are sold for despite my high pricing expectations. The gold lame' purse was priced at $2. SOLD!!
We later hit up a Salvation Army in Chula Vista and walked away, yet again, with some lovely goodies. Dave spotted the Tex Ritter 78" set and I spotted the vintage Japanese children's record set. Unfortunately I made the grave error of not examining the records and two of the three children's records were broken. Lesson learned.
I fell instantly for these Oklahoma and Texas cowboy and Indian themed glasses.
I have been needing a good set of mixing bowls and these vintage bowls were the perfect match. Great buy at just $5 for all of them. They show no wear and look practically brand new.
I bought this off the shoulder navy Mexican styled dress at AmVets and couldn't be happier with the find. I will be sure to include photos of me wearing the outfit in the near future.
Here are some jewelry finds. I could have sworn the bracelet was Bakelite but the simichrome test assured me it is in fact not. It has no mold seams and has the heavy weight of a Bakelite bracelet. I still love the piece regardless.
Dave and I had a great July 4th. We did thrift for a little bit (finding some fantastic finds) and spent the remainder of the day relaxing at a friend's house having some yummy burgers, pie, mojitos, and watched some quick but epic fireworks (Google Big Bay Boom 2012 Fail in San Diego if you are interested). I will post that blog sometime later in the week.
Till next time,
