We haven't done much thrifting in the past two weeks because the last time Shannon and I went shopping we came back with a car full of treasures, and we've been taking our time uploading them to Etsy, but I wanted to share some of the great things we found.
A little about what we've found:
The first piece is an beautiful classic 80's necklace. Great statement necklace.
The second picture shows a great pair of suspenders we found paired with a whale bow-tie necklace, satin shirt, and mini skirt to keep it young and fun.
The last picture shows one of my favorite finds - a 50's sailor dress. Its very simple, but beautifully made, with buttons down the back (back, back).
What I personally have found the hardest about thrifting is knowing what to buy and what not to buy? How do you know someone else will like it? When I found the necklace, I also found a pair of awesome (terrible??) sailboat shorts made out of terrycloth. They were high waisted. They had pockets. I was torn - who would like these? I like these. I honestly started questioning my taste. I put them back. What do you think? Was it a mistake or did I make the right call? Its HAUNTING!
Well, I hope I didn't make a mistake. If they weren't terrycloth, I would have been all over these.
Until next week thrifters!
