Last week I had no luck at the thrift, I definitely ogled the above two black purses but my practicality won over. The above 1940s silk purse was gorgeous I loved that the brass mirror was still in mint condition but I knew if I were to have a "night out" purse I wouldn't reach for this one I have others I like more. I did almost buy the larger patent 1950's purse though but then decided to see if my keys or phone would fit in the provided pockets and nope not one fit so I had to leave it behind.
There was a giant flea market this weekend (only 30% were vintage sellers) but the ones that do sell there I tend to like their stock. I have not been able to thrift a set of mixing bowls or even lonely mixing bowls to save my life the past two years so I had allotted myself a budget of $40 for a new to me vintage set. These federal glass ones came in under budget so I was pleased. I bought them from local etsy seller lisa of bitchin kitsch'n'kitchen They are not my personal holy grail so I will have no guilt actually using them for baking.
