I had a pretty good thrifting day yesterday so I thought I'd put all my finds in a post.
First of all I went to something called the "World's Largest Garage Sale" which was a HORRIBLE name for this thing, because it wasn't in a garage and it wasn't especially big either? It was more like a flea market, so there were a lot of overpriced collectible sort of things. I only bought a couple things but it was fun to just walk around and gawk at all the stuff there, you know?
This is some sort of planter/keyrack hybrid.
Everyone from my hometown drinks Schnooner for some reason so I felt a little drawn to this flattened out old can.
When that was all said and done I decided to take a trip to the grocery store to gather some ingredients for Budget Bytes Root Beer Pulled Pork (It was delicious, btw). I "popped in" to a thrift store on the way and ended up finding a bunch of stuff that I had to carry around with me while I ran my errands. Including this 60s trenchcoat...
I look sweaty and pissed because I WAS. Just trying this on made me way too warm. I've been keeping an eye out for a trenchcoat but this is the first time I've found something that I think is my style. I love the big full "skirt" on this one!
There was a BOGO deal on, btw, so I got the coat, these two tops and the pair of shoes, for 6 dollars all together.
I always love a pair of t-straps. I was considering getting some Golden Ponies in this style.
I come across this tag a lot in my travels, usually on really brightly-coloured, fun tops from the 70s-80s. I looked up the town on the tag (Lanark) and learned that it's really suffered economically since the "Kitten Mill" closed down in the 90s, due to cheap exported fabric from Asia. Sad, eh? Everything I own by this brand is such great quality, with a lot of attention to details.
