My mom and I went on a Florida roadtrip traveling from the Northernmost to Southernmost points and stopping at many vintage shops and thrift stores along the way. Here's the vintage I found along the way (along with finds from my local flea markets from Wednesday and Sunday):
I found lots of big American Tourister suitcases this week, how appropriate!
A beautiful Transformers comic book! I rarely find these and I've never found one in this format.
I wish I had time to scan and show off some of the pages right now, but we have too many other finds to look at...
Another facinating find I wish I had more time to throughly document is this vintage wood burning kit.
I'll have to break it out and play with the contents if I don't sell it first. Painted wood burned pieces have so much extra dimension, definitely one of my favorites to collect.
I'm going to use these to make picnic kits. Perhaps I'll use them on a picnic of my own, the weather has been perfect here in Florida!
Beautiful log planter! I tried to resist it, but failed! I have some fun planting ideas for it.
Vintage soap dish! The goofy girl and groovy flowers remind me of School House Rock.
I rarely buy vintage scarves, but these two spoke to me somehow. They're cheap and easy to ship anyway, it was worth trying these out.
And this Girl Scout scarf was in perfect shape, I love the whimsical illustrations splayed across it.
Can't go wrong with ur, "vintage" 90s power rangers fabric. Feeling a bit old now that fabric from my childhood is considered "vintage." This is actually my second bit of Power Rangers fabric. I wonder what I'll do with it...
I loved the cartoony, novelty tea pot. It's not vintage and I'm not sure if it will sell, but I scooped it up anyway. Loving the kitsch vintage cups, too.
Beautiful, colorful cherry blossom cup set. I like how the handle is made to look like stalks of bamboo.
Hurray, pop culture bits! I haven't even opened these up yet, but I can't wait to play the game. Hopefully all the pieces are intact.
This huge lamb cookie jar is one of the cutest things I've ever purchased. I love how it's in such pristine shape! The owl bookend is adorable, too.
And this just made me laugh. I affect this silly improper English at random with my friends. We're ridiculous.
My mom found this super adorable vintage kiddie fabric. I think I'll try to sell these as is instead of sewing with them.
Yellow hippo planter! How can you not love him and his tiny vintage kitty companion?
I sold my last coffee pot like this, so I thought I'd risk it again. My trivet fetish wouldn't let me pass up this one. I love the color scheme of bright, primary colors and the clean lines and shapes.
I love cute kid's stuff and couldn't leave this bit behind at the flea market. When I open shop there'll definitely have to be a little kid's section.
I was excited to find these chalkware owls! So damn cute. The flower print pyrex bowl was a fun find, too.
More chalkware birds, this time a pair of colorful cockatoos that would look nice with some cocktails...in a 50s mod tiki bar!
Vintage cookbooks! Yay! This is my second Betty Crocker for Kid's cookbook find, this edition is smaller than the normal version. I hear they're valuable to share, but both my books have a little damage. Hopefully I can still get a decent amount from them!
I used to own two green cups like the ones in this whole set. I'd love to ship it out to someone for a good deal since I got the whole set from such a low price.
And bunnies for Easter! Why not? I'm a bunny fan anyway, no matter what time of year it is.
And another favorite find, this lovely colorful owl with matching flowers.
Now I have tons of vintage to clean up, photograph, tag, list, and sell! Not to mention dozens of fun pictures from the Thrift Road Trip to sort through for a future post. If you see anything photographed that you must have, send me an e-mail :)
