Latest Thrift Store Finds

Thrift store shopping is always something I can fit into my week.  I'll be out running errands and usually, just usually (ok, almost always), I have time for a quick run into the thrift store.  Browsing is downtime for me; a time when I just unwind and restore myself.   I'm always inspired.  Phoenix is bursting with amazing thrift stores.  They're like gas stations and you can almost find one on almost every corner.  I think they're a great benefit to our communities.

My style is somewhere between mid-century and vintage.  Anything unique will draw my interest.  Here are a few of my latest finds.
A Mele vintage jewelry case.  

It was priced at $3.99.  I found one similar on for $80.  
Sometimes, I paint these little cuties cream and shabby chic them, but this one is too cute as-is.  

Here's a Annie Laurie vintage purse I paid $2.99 for.  
The French design is so special.  
On eBay, a similiar Annie Laurie purse is priced at $90.

Remember my posts Put a Bird On it (find them here and here)?  I still love birds. 
This is a little wood carved hand-painted bird.  Isn't it a little jewel.
I love her and will keep her forever.

The last time I went to Goodwill, my son Mayer was with me.  He said "Mom, all you ever buy is dresses and dressers!" 
Yep, that about sums it up.
This Sunday get-up from Spiegel was $8.00. New, this would run around $74.00.

Speaking of dressers, here's the newest piece I've run down to Antique Plaza.  

If you want to check out my space, it's booth #52.  

Just look for the My Dear Trash sign.
Remember peacock blue (click here and here)?  It's another bird I keep alive and well.
