It has been a busy week for thrifting, but by far, yesterday was my best haul yet. I didn't even spend a 20 spot and got some great vintage-y fabulousness and a current item I'd been seeking. I found most of this at an estate sale.
Now, I have heard of some of my blogger/thrifter/reseller homies from larger cities talking about how people camp out before the sale starts and then when it does there is pushing, shoving, etc. But in my town, I had yet to experience this, until yesterday. It was arses to elbows in this house. The line to get in was nuts and I was afraid I was going to have to make a choice between either helping an old lady up off the floor if she fell or politely asking her to move because she was taking too much time looking at the Pyrex in the cramped kitchen. Arrgh! I guess a competitiveness that I didn't know I had started to come out and I was jostling for position and shimmying my way through the crowd to get the best stuff.
Here's the spread:
Vintage Dreams. Next to it is a Camp Fire Girls purse, I thought they carried rucksacks? Who knew they had purses and who knew they were so fashionable! It looks like a Coach with a little CFG logo above the closure. I can't find this purse anywhere on the auction sites, so if you have an idea of value, let me know. I believe it is from the late 60s.
Going up to the top left, we have a set of snack bowls that nest together neatly in the blue bowl when not in use.
Then that super cute mid century lamp (not marked) and the awesome Pan Am'ish blue Samsonite bag, a West Bend percolator, cool Storz bottle opener in original box, and a Corning dish.
Hmmm...feel like I am forgetting something.
Let's see, it is cast iron. A cool orangey red color. Super duper heavy (I did pull a muscle yesterday). It's a LE CREUSET grill!! Yep, it finally happened. My cast iron dreams came true, and all for only $1! (fainting) But alas, I am a reseller, so it's going on the 'bay.
What is your find of all finds? Please share, I love hearing your success stories!
