Holy Jackpot Batman!
|Remember my post about Jell-O? Well, it isn't a fish...but i think a lobster is just as neat!|
I had the thrifting itch the other day and my hubby was so sweet to give me some time to do a little treasure hunting :)
I wasn't having the best of luck at first... I stopped at two local shops with no luck.
Man, that really bums me out.
I usually never really have anything specific that I am looking for...but I definitely do have a certain taste.
I think I would categorize my taste in the Retro/Rockabilly/Mid-Century/Madmen/Pan-Am/Atomic/Hippie/Kitsch category...is there one of those?
Anyway...so after the first two stops, I was feeling my thrifting vibe sinking slowly...then...the 3rd store. Thank goodness for the 3rd store! My thrifting mojo was back up and climbing with every mid-century kitsch goodie I was getting my hands on!
Needless to say, I had a big smile on my face after leaving that shop :)
So...with only about 45 minutes till I had to be at work...I last-minute decided to make a quick stop at my absolute favorite thrift shop. ((The reason it is my favorite, is because they actually have a "Women's Oldies" section FULL of vintage clothing! AND the best part is that the prices are super low because it is not an "upscale re-sale"))
I was a little worried that I was being too risky with my timing and that I might be late for work if I went...
I pulled in the parking lot, still debating if I had enough time...i almost turned around...and then I saw a big sign in the window that said "ALL CLOTHING HALF OFF TODAY"
BAH! Are you kidding me!? I hurried my little tush right in there and snatched up about 40 different amazing pieces of vintage threads...almost had a panic attack...then headed to work! Haha!
My hubby always says that he is so happy my shopping addiction is for things that cost between 50 cents and $5.00! While a lot of women are avid collectors of Louis V, Coach, or the like...I usually WON'T buy anything unless its vintage. Well...at least its pretty rare that I do anyway...
I'm one lucky girl that he supports my awesome vintage addiction :)
