This week's haul was pretty successful - lots of vintage 90's denim shorts, a few dresses... have a look at my finds. They'll be in the shop soon. We're going to get a spring snow storm tomorrow so I hope to get a lot of work done and get these listed.
That's it for this week. More to come soon.
I see so many weird and cool vintage things when out hunting for shop inventory. I can't bring it all home (my husband would probably leave me) so the next best thing is to document and share them here. Behold - my first series of "seen at the thrift store - but left behind".
I did just a little hunting the past week and found a few cool things. I'm looking forward to the thrift stores putting out their spring and summer gear. So far they're starting to bring out shorts but still waiting on swimsuits and sandals. I received a coupon through my email for $10 off a $30 purchase at my favorite thrift store chain (a coupon is the BEST excuse to go thrifting, even though honestly, I would have gone anyway!), so off I went on Friday afternoon to see what I could find...
Cute 70's or 80's floral polyester top with smocked bottom. A little tacky but also could be really cute with the right bottoms. I have a thing for polyester. This one will be up in the shop.
Adorable 90's sunflower print set - a crop top and a skort! Looks to be handmade. Super cute!! Will be for sale.
Basic 90's denim shortalls. These were pretty in last summer, so hopefully there's still a demand for them this summer. These will be for sale.
90's high waist denim shorts - the black ones are Lee. Classic summer staples. It's hard to find denim shorts these days that aren't so crazy short or super low rise! These are also 100% denim so they are thick and sturdy. Both will be for sale.
Citrus handbag! I have such a weakness for any kind of fruit print or accessory. Looks like woven straw. This will be for sale.
Metallic gold LA Gear lace up sneakers! I've seen these before but never grabbed them. Decided to this time and glad I did, as metallics are pretty in right now. I remember dying for a pair of LA Gear sneakers in 3rd grade.
Red woven faux leather mini wedges. What a cheerful color! These will be for sale.
Upcycled brooch - looks like someone took out an old cameo and replaced it with a decoupaged vintage kitten! I want to make it into a necklace. Keeping this one, as I am a cat lady 100%.
And for me - 3 band shirts. I'm always looking through the men's shirts to find the perfect vintage tee. I often come across band shirts of groups I like. Seems like I came across part of someone's collection: MxPx, Passion Pit, and Brand New. Score for me!
That's it for last week. I hope to have some more time to go hunting this week.
I thought I would share some of my finds from the past week before they get lost in the "needs to be photographed" pile ;) Most of these items will be available in the store soon. All of these were from an estate sale of a woman named Elinor here in Denver. Her home was like a time machine back to the 1960's. Tons of clothes and even more shoes, records, jewelry, postcards, scrapbooks... a huge basement full of stuff. These are my absolute favorite types of estate sales. It amazes and overjoys me that people keep such things for decades. I probably would have brought more home, but I was testing the husband's patience... Feel free to drop me a line if you're interested in something before it hits the Etsy store.
