Thrifting Trip

My Mom and I went "thrifting" today. It was tons of fun; and we met up with my sisters Naomi and Noelle, and our good friend Amber, for a delish Mexican food lunch.

Some of the things I scored: (Sorry the pics are sub - par but I took them in a hurry)

1950s lace wedding dress. This thing is teeny tiny... like a size 0-2. I cannot get over how puny people were back in the day.

I decided I want to start offering more vintage wedding items; and this is a start.

Vintage wedding veil.

Gunne Sax strapless prom dress. This thing looks totally "current"; like something you'd go find at Deb's.

Photobucket

Handmade Jane Austen style gown.... red satin, with a train and built in crinoline petticoat. The sewing is impeccable.

Photobucket

Classic blue polyester 1970's "secretary" dress. I couldn't pass it up.

Photobucket

Pink Vanity Fair bed jacket. I have a thing for bed jackets; I always buy them when I find them.

Here is an example of what I was talking about the other day in this post. The Goodwill marks prices on things like this all the time. In this case, it is a really groovy 1940's - 1950s metal lunchbox that has been permanently marred by the Goodwill Sharpie. But I bought it anyway. :(

A vintage "Kelly" bag, and a groovy little satin and embroidery coin purse made in Spain.

And to keep for myself: a silver creamer and sugar set and a 1950s Pyrex fridge dish.

I bought a dirty bag of "smalls"; mostly miniature porcelain figurines. All of these are about 2 inches in height.

Lions and tigers and bears; Oh my!

I just almost actually cried real tears over that lunch box... It's a crime!
