Feeding that Thrift Addiction.

This blog is back tracking to last weekends finds.  I have been a busy bee with hosting friends in town a weekend ago and with the Tiki Oasis events starting up mid-week last week (blogs to follow).  So here is what we found on a trip to AmVets.

Dave spotted this kitty on our way out.  It has a couple markings where wood is showing through.  My guess is someone painted the teak kitty black.  I haven't decided if I want to restore it to the teak or keep it black covering up the spots.  It was a no brainer buy at only $1.99.

Love this gold lame' handbag.  Every girl needs at least one gold purse in their closet.  I think this is number three for me now!

 I'm getting good at spotting these mugs.  Dave is always ashamed of himself when he walks by these without spotting them first.  No markings on the bottom but still a good buy for $0.99.

 I got this cute baby blue Barclay vintage polo shirt.  It's probably something I will save to wear in the fall and winter months as it's Acrylic material and I nearly had heat exhaustion trying it on.

Elvis trivia game.  No brainer. The questions are actually pretty hard.  Looking forward to playing this with my dad.

 I came across this ceramic mug and was intrigued by it.  I know it's not Tiki but thought it would fit in with my collection.  Does anyone know anything about it??   I tried searching online but could not find anything similar.

These are just a few retro styled patterns I came across on eBay and purchased with the idea of using these for a dress project with a friend.  I would love to use the floral material I found last month on one of these patterns.  

Lastly my Tiki Day bag arrived from Cafe' Press just in time for Tiki Oasis.  I had fun using it and even received some awesome compliments.  I'm a month and a few days away from the event!  Look up our page on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/tikiday

Hope you all are having a great summer.  I can't believe it's already drawing to a close.  Several more blogs to follow soon with my Tiki Oasis pictures, another thrift blog, and possibly a special interview.

Till' Next Time,
