I'm on a self-imposed hunting break. I realize you always need "fresh meat" to keep sales up but I don't feel physically and mentally equipped to bring in loads of new merchandise. I'm still soul-searching and trying to plot my next career move. And I'm enjoying my new very clear and minimalist pad (tour soon!) too much to trash it again!
I did stop by a yard sale a couple of doors down from my apartment. I wouldn't have gone but I've repositioned my desk by the window and I saw the yard sale sign on the street light outside! Who could resist the quick ride over? I've always admired this house with its colorful flags and potted succulents, good to see the wares of the inhabitants. They have great taste!
I'll get better shots of the gorgeous dresses I found later. They're all name-brand and like-new, I love how they exemplify how little you need to go out to buy nice new clothing! I'd rather pay $2.50 for these than $250.00! I've already worn a couple of these out on dates. (both the photos above from my Instagram feed)
I also found the lovely tea set above, I've see it at Urban Outfitters and Antropologie (I recognized at least one dress label from Anthropologie as well- pricy!) and am happy to own it even for a little while. It's $18 if anyone would like to buy it.
Then I had to scoop up this owl needlepoint piece from the same sale. Love the eyes on this guy- daisy eyes! ---------->>> On Etsy
I love that you can just switch out the shelves for a refreshed work space if desired. A great way to display the art and host some knick-knacks. ---------->>> On Etsy
This little Numble one is a favorite, love the small size of it and the retro graphic design. ---------->>> On Etsy
My mom actually found this classic early 1980s Ninja Turtles game board for me at the Goodwill pound store. It only came with the board unfortunately because this looks like it would be an amazing game to play- love the retro designs on the turtles and the colors! ---------->>> On Etsy
