We thrifted, we conquered. My craft-night partners in crime Mike and Cheryl accompanied me on a wild thrift adventure this weekend.

We pillaged several thrift stores hard until we collapsed; spent. (If that sounds a lot like Thrift Love Making, that’s because it was. Oh, it was.)
[My friend Cheryl. We fell in love with this dreamy vintage couch.]
This was the first weekend I did thrift-related work until I literally collapsed from exhaustion.
[Colossal E.T. Loot! It was incredible, more than I could properly photograph in one day.]
Each new thrift spot to explore was an unspoiled land, and we were conquistadors surrounded by seductive vintage bounty.
[Huge menu, quality food, and engaging conversation with friendly locals. Sublime.]
We couldn’t resist the siren’s call of (at least) seven thrift stores, each one packed with seemingly infinite booty.
[Boat Art. Underneath it, a National Geographic map of the Pacific Islands.]
To go with our weekend theme of exploration, I unearthed this prim and alluring vintage boat string art. I’m entranced by unique boat art, so I happily paid the steep $10 for this piece.
[Yellow Cup Set]
These sunny yellow tea cups and creamer will be the canvas for some owl artwork. Does anyone have suggestions for painting on glazed ceramics? The cute little owls cost 25 cents all will go in my antique store booth.
[Vintage Cross Stitched Pansy Art]
This Groovy “Love” cross stitched art is also destined for my antique store booth. I love how it’s already appropriately framed.
[Boat Art is docked in its new home. Flanked by beckoning, exotic ladies (Japanese Dolls)]
It was an exhausting but rewarding weekend of thrift store looting and plundering, but next weekend I’ll return to leisure flea market and yard sale perusing to protect my sanity!
