I made my first thrifting trip a few days ago in search of goodies for my Vintage Swap partner. Why, oh, why did I join this swap?! Did I find anything that I thought my partner would find appealing? Not a single thing. Did I find a whole ton of crap to bring home for myself?
Bad swap partner.
Here's the loot:
Awesome, handmade dress that fits me like a dream and makes me look like I walked off the set of Austin Powers
Two pillowcases, 79 cents each
Wool blanket, with a few minor stains, that I can cut up and repurpose
Two twin fitted sheets
Nice green cardigan
with a fun label!
Nice Gap shirt for work
I love the print, such pretty soft colors!
A single-serving Dynaware (fake Pyrex) casserole dish. This one matches one that I already have. Now my kitties each eat out of matching Pyrexy bowls. I have a disease...haha!
Doesn't look too exciting, eh? But...
It's made of a gorgeous soft wool/cashmere blend. It does not fit any of the men in my family, but I had to have it. Do you think the fashionista gods would hate me forever for cutting it up for the fabric? I see soft cashmere-y pillows or scarves in the future. What do you think?
How about all of you? Any fun thrift scores lately?
