'Twas another light hunting week for me. I hit up the nearby Goodwill by-the-pound store, where you dig through bins of wares assorted by type and buy the items at a set rate per pound, and did little else. I need to do that more often, my non-thrifter friends cringe as I describe competitively digging through dirty bins filled with random craziness- but admire the outfits I put together from it for pennies on the dollar! Risk rewards the brave! (And ran out of time to photograph, oops, next time!) Here are the other random finds:
This is the second time I found an amazing 1960-70s retro travel bag in great shape at the pound store. HOW did it get by so many shoppers before my vulture eye spotted it? On Etsy
McMansion family had a couple of boys who'd outgrown books an clothes so I scooped 'em all up. (The clothing was swiftly given to my three nephews, adult-sized ones to my boyfriend, before I could take photos.)
I sold some of the books to the local used book store, some are on Etsy here, here, and here (more to list still) and others will be kept to scan for art prints. I have hundreds of original vintage book pages to get online as soon as possible!
This beautiful blowdryer case was another lucky pound store find. Super cute to use as a storage or travel case, it's chilling on Etsy.
Holy crap, me and my mugs, make it stop! I have to stop picking these damn things up, but Care Bears is a bit safer. It's on Etsy and eBay waiting for a new home.
And how about these stunning white milk glass vases? Such a fun instant collection, great home display. They're on Etsy.
Anyone have an ID on these mod mugs? Love them, I love to use clear mugs for fancy tea infusions so you can admire the color. On Etsy.
And to round out my damned cup obsession (Gotta stop, but they're so cheap and plentiful here. No more, no mas! My expedit unit explodes with mugs!) I couldn't resist this awesome retro striped tumbler set. It goes perfectly with my primary/secondary color love and blocky 80s robot obsession. On Etsy.
Had to get this groovy Nasa bag, bought me back to simple times looking through telescopes after school in Astronomy club. And the Nasa logo os gorgeous. 2001 is certainly not vintage but bah! Beautiful bag. It's in my Southern Crossing Antique Mall booth and if no one buys it I'll put my name on it and wear it with pride!
Many more vintage find and things to come, for now it's 1:05AM, I have a 9AM shift, time will myself to sleep. Do let me know if you found anything awesome this weekend! Thank you all who shared tips for transition to eBay last week, still working on switching over. I want to add as many items as possible this week and will update on the process. Trying to clear all the vintage outta this apartment!
