Happy National Thrift Day! My regular Friday night shop at the thrift store and Saturday morning yard sales lead to fun & finds.
FRIDAY THRIFT STORE:
VINTAGE VELVET EVENING COAT, ($16.99), Rain Master, Canada
Two buttons to sew back on. The owner had slipped the glittery pair into the pocket. Whew!
VINTAGE SILK SCARVES: Pierre Balmain ($6.99), Albert Nipon ($1.49)
Perfect but very wrinkled.
VINTAGE LEATHER HANDBAG ($6.99) Chamell, Made in England
That clasp is a work of metal art.
LINEN SHIRTS ($10 ea) Boyfriend Shirt, The Gap
Brand new, unworn.
SATURDAY YARD SALES:
GLASS LAMP ($7)
So heavy, I can barely lift it.
SHOES ($5), Calico, Leather Upper & Handmade Sole, Made in Brazil
Vintage but unworn.
COSMETIC CASE ($4) Estée Lauder
So fabulous and useful. A makeup bag is just not the same. Why don’t they make these anymore?
BOOKS Hemingway(25¢); Rushdie (50¢)
GRAND TOTAL: $16.75
And then, a stop for sushi lunch.
A perfect Saturday morning.
