Thriftariffic!

Posted in photo by gwen on February 17, 2010

Hope you all had a good weekend. We spent Valentine’s Day at the Charles Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa and some quality time at the thrift store yesterday. Things I acquired at the half-off Presidents’ Day sale*:

The sweetest little espresso cup there ever was. Look at that hand lettering — it just kills me! 69¢

Espresso cup with silk Pierre Cardin scarf

Two vintage silk scarves *MINT* for 99¢. TOTAL. One’s Pierre Cardin and I am not real big on navy but I love the orange/tan/cream stripes. The other says both aboriginal designs and “designed by Neil” and I am not sure who to believe. But again with the earth tones.

Silk scarf with aboriginal Australian designs, "designed by Neil"

A most excellent round-handled 70s-80s handbag. It’s got the oldschool industrial zipper so you know it’ll hold up for awhile. I totally splurged on this, it was $2.99!

I am in love with this purseMilk glass sugar bowl / vase / storage space / earring hanger

Faux milk glass-y vase/jar/sugar bowl/King Cake baby earring display, 99¢.

Espresso cup #2 with Neil's scarf

Look, it’s the other side of the demitasse and more of Neil’s aboriginal scarf.

I also bought a pale yellow threadbare knit top with vintage-y beads sewn around the neckline but cannot take a good photo of it. I will wear it when it warms up.

And I finally got around to making a thrifting set on flickr of our many finds and sights – check it out!
