What I did do made up for it. I found the most jam packed crazy flea market I have ever stepped foot inside. It was wall to wall vintage treasures. I think I found my people. I could have spent a small fortune but it was actually a bit overwhelming...too many things to choose from! I had the pleasure of chatting with an older gentleman who totally had my number! The first time I walked by he said, "You are a collector, I can tell". Now while I am sure many people that walk through those doors are collectors he did specifically say it to me and not the person I was there with. On my second go round I asked him about some milk glass vases. His response was "Must be for a wedding." While I am not exactly engaged yet...he was right, I have been collecting them for my someday wedding (yes, I know...I am crazy...so what!). I ended up buying a sweet squirrel salt and pepper shaker from him and used some mad bargaining skills to get all seven of his vases for half price!
The thrifting didn't stop there. I have also been stalking Value Village and Kijiji for fun finds. I got a new to me kitchen table with chrome legs and a faux wood top for $20 and some other adorable treasures.
Bambi planter to match my Bambi bookends I got a while back.
Bird plates for my plate wall. On top of vintage polyester curtains that I adore.
Pink cabbage rose depression glass.
Baby gift for a friend who just had the most adorable baby boy. Going plant some pretty flowers in it.
Anchor Hocking baking dish.
Brass wall sconce type things.
Next weekend is a favorite of mine. Curbside give away weekend! I am going to get up early, hit up the fancy neighbourhoods and try to score some good free stuff to bring home:) I wish J or K were around to help me with my search!
