Thrift Blog: November 2012

Below are some of my finds for the month of November which I bought both at various thrift stores and Estate sales.

More lovely purses to add to my vintage collection.

This purse was gifted to me from Dave's sister Debbie.  It's too cute!  I've already used it on several occasions.

I picked this bag up at a thrift store while I was in Riverside for a friend's wedding.  This will be my last purchase of these Mexican styled tourists bags.  Now I have them in all shapes, colors, and sizes. 

I couldn't pass on this Lucite Jadeite hued bangle.  The picture doesn't do it justice. (I know, I know. A new camera is on the top of my wish list).

Couldn't pass on this nautical themed top.  I love the buttons up the back.

I thought this elegant late 60's handmade dress would fit in perfectly with my ever growing vintage collection.  Looking forward to having an excuse to wear it soon.

Who doesn't need a fall themed Tally Ho black sweater in their wardrobe?

I have seen this style of purse on various occasions but couldn't pass it up this time for a measly $2.00.  Found this handbag at a thrift store in Anaheim shopping after a day spent at Disneyland.
The following were my recent estate sale buys.  I found out that these "Do It Yourself" needlepoint broaches were pretty popular in the past.  I hadn't seen anything like it and loved the floral pattern.  The fish broach was too cute to pass on.

I have been loosely shopping around for a vintage compact and came across this samurai compact for $1.00.  Don't be timid about purcashing one of these.  It's very easy to take out the old powder container and replace it with a new one.  

My biggest and latest news is that I can officially add "Auntie" to my list of titles.  My sister gave birth to baby Paige Margaret (my grandmother's name) on November 21st.   I have yet to meet her and am counting down the days until Christmas break when I will get the chance to visit them.  She is just absolutely perfectly precious in every way! 

As always, I hope you are having a great week!  Looking forward to another busy and fun weekend.  I'm very excited to see Nikki Hill live at the Ken Club on Friday night followed by my Prohibition themed office Christmas party (still not sure what I'm going to throw together for a costume as you know I'm definitely dressing up), and then there are various Christmas faires and events all over town. 

Till' Next Time,
