Thrift Haul: Rainbow Colors, President Day Sales, and Trades


I only hit up one thrift store this week, instead focusing on organizing the beast mess in my apartment and working on everything else I needed to get caught-up on! I scooped up a couple of things I'd been wanting for during the President's Day Sale. You'll remember the kitty tin from my first What I Didn't Buy (at the Thrift Store) post!


This adorable Jr. Miss Knitting Basket has all the original pieces intact! I love the very 50s illustrations. I did a vintage trade with my friend Nicole to obtain this one and the kitchen notebook below. I enjoyed using my dollar store magic eraser to clean it from beige to bright white!


I just love the color and whimsy of this vintage kitchen notebook, it's in great shape, too!


I've always liked vintage tv trays like this. I bought this one to add some levels to my antique store booth.


A perfect find for this embroidery and tea lover. Too damn cute.


This suitcase isn't technically a thrift find from the week. I "rediscovered" it while cleaning out my hallway closet. It's filled to the brim with copy paper. I knew that paper was around here somewhere!


And here we have the cute Sanrio tin I shouldn't have bought. But it was on clearance, how could I resist? 


This rainbow blanket with purple Fringe was a fun find, too. I love it as a backdrop for pictures.


It's another Yuko-approved blanket! Remember, everything pictured is for sale! Send me an e-mail if you'd like anything in this post. It would help me hit my organization goals for the week! ;)

What did you find this weekend?

    1. I usually have my photographed ahead of time, this time I didn't get to it until this morning! Bad me. I've gotten in the habit of washing and tagging items for sale as soon as I get home.

    1. Make me an offer. You might bring her back after you see her run around the house like a maniac. She's crazy sometimes.

    1. You should. I always forget to pick up little shelves to add more dimension and "space" to my booths.

  11. Ah, I love vintage tv trays! I found some good stuff this weekend, too, and blogged it! I keep forgetting to bring my SLR into the store with me so I can capture some of the whimsy/hilarity/interest that I see here from time to time...too busy chasing after my five year old, lol!

  12. You have a great blog. I always have to see what great things you find, and really like your goal posts. I am very happy to hear that you decided not to apply for that job and you are following your heart instead.

    1. Thank you for the kind words! Glad the goal posts are enjoyed ;) They're tricky to fit in and get used to.

  13. Hello, Van! My gosh, I'm drooling over that vintage kitchen notebook and tv tray. If only I live closer I would've already made an offer. I really like your shop. Someday I'd like to have one, too.
