No fabulous estate sales this weekend, not even that many yard sales. I guess it's just too hot. So, my plan was to do some climate controlled shopping. My first stop was the Catholic Social Services thrift store. I usually go there on Saturday but was stressing a little at work on Friday and decided to take my lunch break and do some thrifting (that always makes me feel better). I strolled through the housewares and picked up a few small items and then moved over to the clothing and that is where I hit the jackpot. First I found a vintage Abe Schrader slip (in perfect condition) and then the find of the day, a Vintage Handmade Kimono and matching lounging pajama's. The Kimono and lounging pajama's had some stains and looked like it needed to be rescued and taken home for a little TLC. I must be honest I lost focus after that (couldn't imagine finding anything else as spectacular as that Kimono).
After work (when my head had cleared and I was able to focus again) I headed over to the Salvation Army. Didn't really find anything, next stop Goodwill. I walked in and promptly ran in to my sister Val who was there with my sister Van. We chatted for a few minutes and then parted company to concentrate on our thrifting. I did find a couple of great items that I am very excited about. A Toscany Clipper Decanter and 6 glasses (missing stopper) made it's way into my basket as did a pair of Vintage Syroco wall shelves and some fabric. I checked out and went home. I had just stepped in the door when my phone rang, it was my youngest sister Vonda. I asked her what she had been doing and she said she had just left the Goodwill. We were there at the same time and I just didn't see her. So I guess all of Helen's Daughters were in a thifty mood.
Hope everyone found great vintage things this weekend.
