Much of the painting took place over last weekend, which of course also overlapped with the yard sales. There were a few listings on Craigslist that I didn't want to miss, but I also wanted to be there for my hard working man to help with running to get supplies. What is a wife/thrifter/yard saler/estate saler to do!!??
I ended up combining my trips, he-he..."Oh honey, you say you need more paint rollers? Do you need them right away? In a little bit? Um, okay. Uh, there is a really good yard sale not far from Home Depot (20 minutes away) so maybe I will stop there and then go to HD on the way back, since its on the way and all (not really). Is that OK? Can I bring you a beer or any food? No? OK, (kisses) I will be back soon (hour and a half). I will be on my cell if you need anything".
Notice how I slyly combined a man's dream words: Home Depot, beer, and food? It worked. My good wife-ness was still intact, and I was off to the sales, woot!
I found some new and vintage-y goodness at the sale of a young couple who was moving to San Francisco. She too, was an avid estate saler, vintage lover, and overall good-taste gal. I scooped up a new Crate and Barrel tablecloth for $2.50:
A Harrods teddy bear (that my dobie ended up eating) hence no photo.
Some vintage Ferragamo's, size 10, available here:
And a few amazing frocks for the etsy shop:
Back in the day, the clothes were made with so much more care and attention to detail. The texture combinations on this dress are to die for.
A vintage coat, fully lined:
A vintage mens Levi's Panatela 3-piece suit:
The green coat is just so beautiful, and I thought about keeping it, but I know I wouldn't wear it enough to do it proper justice. It should be shown off to the masses! The Levi's suit is fun too. Total hipster chic.
