Thrift Haul: The Creepy, The Cute, and the Sexy


It's over...I survived! Next month I can set a higher thrifting budget and spare myself the torture of leaving many desirable items behind! This week I went to the thrift store once and came home with two items. The first one is a ridiculously cute vintage nursery scale.


Who could resist such cute illustrations? I'm kind of geeking out over the typography,t too. It's the perfect gift for a baby shower; a functional display piece for baby's nursery.


I haven't had luck selling vintage jars and canisters in the shop, so I've been leaving most of the ones I encountered behind. But I have faith in this sunny pair.


I meant to show this off last week, I won an amazing book giveaway from Vintage Goodness! They're full of vintage fun, practical information, and inspiration galore.


I adore all the vintage pin-up art and inspiration in Bad Girls Need Love Too and Dames, Dolls, & Delinquents but Creepy-Ass Dolls speaks to my horror-loving soul. Some of these dolls are true nightmare fuel. But none as as scary as my demon baby, with eyes that glow with the fires of hell! Kill it, drown it in holy water before it's too late!

What did you find this weekend?

  1. Phew you have way more way power than me, I set a weekly thrifting budget and will usually trade in items at my favorite antique store to get store credit.

    The first photo of your kitty testing out the scale is too adorable! I wish I had a kitty to pose in my "thrift haul" posts.

  2. Budget?? Ya, that's a problem for me. I went to my go to Salvation Army on Friday, just to check and see if there is anything special. A full cart and $35 later (on half off day no less) and I had some cool stuff :)

    1. That was -almost- me this week, I left a lot of goodness behind. At least doing this budget thing has me being more thoughtful about what I spend on merchandise!

    1. It's a fun piece, just realized if it's correct it makes a nice postal scale for online reselling too. Cuter than most models.
