this post that I was going to be dropping off some vintage to the thrift store in hopes it would give me good "thrift karma" as I like to call it and yes, yes it did. The same week I dropped off my donations I found three items that I had been searching for so here they are!
Lisa if you are reading this I did not find them at "our" store that location is still giving me lemons but the Ellice Ave Value Village paid off for a change.
vintage eyeglass frames: I have been thrifting for ten years now and have never found a pair of vintage frames this week I found two. They are slightly too big for my face so using them for my everyday prescription is out of the question but I may contemplate getting them converted to sunglasses. I have the winter to mull over if the fit of them bugs me too much. Either way they were cheap. I hope they have opened the flood gate to more frames and hopefully a pair that fits me!
vintage beaded cardigan: I have not thrifted a vintage sweater in almost a year. I always stalk the sweater section and always check back before I leave the store in hopes of finding a secret gem. This black beauty needed some love but I fixed her up and I can't wait to wear it. This is my third black vintage cardigan I am pretty much going to be wearing black all winter since that is what the thrift gives me.
pyrex primary blue refrigerator dish: (not pictured) I had yet to thrift a blue refrigerator dish so I was happy to find one with a lid for cheap this week. It is not mint so the little dings in it just mean I can have no guilt using it for baking and storage.
Anybody else have good thrift karma these past few weeks? I am hoping for a few mixing bowls and then my current thrift list will be near complete!
