Thrift Haul - 1/29.13

Today was a really great thrifting day! It was also about 60 degrees outside which was sooo nice. I think I even saw a bee. Anyway, here's what I found!

 Pocahontas resin frame - $6.99

 3 cds - Passion Pit, Phantom Planet, and Shiny Toy Guns - $2.50 each

 Simba plush - $1.99

 And my favorite! An ENORMOUS Sebastian plush. I mean...holy shit. Why did they even decide to make a crab this big? The cashier was very confused as to why I would purchase this at all. Only because it's AWESOME! And only $2.99. Come on.

A layer of ice

There's nothing like a little freezing rain to get a girl in the mood for Spring. It did give me the day off from work (ice pretty much shuts down our little mountain town) and made for some pretty pictures.

Vintage Brooches Galore.

Recently, a large amount of super neat vintage brooches happened to find their way into my possession. By "happened to find their way" I mean that I bought them on ebay. I found some really beautiful ones to keep for myself, but I'm forcing myself to sell the ones that probably won't see daily use. 

Because I don't need 50 brooches. 


They're available here. I'm sure many more will follow as I destash my collection. It's getting ridiculous.

Birthday Thrift Score

Thank you to the wonderful person who decided that they didn't need Final Fantasy VII in their lives anymore. Mine is better for it. I found this great game at Goodwill behind a pile of music cds. Always check the cds!

And complete for $2.50? I am a happy camper.

Things I Love - #2

These bags by SewMuchStyle on Etsy. She uses recycled suit jackets and such to make the neatest purses, messenger bags, and ipad cases. I love the way she combines all the different patterns and positions the pieces. They make me want to start collecting all those neat jackets that I see in thrift stores.



 The print on this dress from Modcloth is the cutest!
 I'm all about hot air balloons and the cut and color are perfect.

This lemon truffle recipe sounds delicious. Of course, everything from How Sweet Eats sounds like the best thing ever.

Crayola nail polish!! And they're mini! Plus the packaging is the most adorable.
