I started my thrifting weekend on Friday during my lunch break at the Catholic Social Services. I have had pretty good luck there over the past month and this week did not disappoint. I love all things sewing related and found a vintage sewing book titled "The ABC's of Sewing" that included about 6 uncut patterns. Needless to say this will be staying with me. One of the patterns is for "play shorts or fancy pants", I am quite positive that my boys would prefer "play shorts" over "fancy pants" any day. Moving on to the clothes, I came across a 1970's Lacoste Izod Jacket in excellent condition. I was going to sell it but my oldest son John has taken a "fancy" to it so I guess it will be his. The fact that he loved a vintage jacket makes me feel like I must have done something right in his upbringing (probably because I never made him wear "fancy pants"). The last item I picked up was a fabulous Ann Taylor jean jacket for myself.
On Saturday morning I met up with mom and we went to a consignment sale but I didn't find any treasures there so we headed over to the only estate sale advertised for this weekend. I found a beautiful ginormous (as Will Ferrell would say) old picture frame and a lovely cake plate.
We did squeeze in a few yard sales where I found some vintage Christmas ornaments, a hand broom, and a great little lamp for my sewing room.
I guess that's it for this weekend. I did want to say I very much enjoy being a part of this thrifting community. I love to look at everyone's treasures (and I do look at them all). Go here if you want to see all my finds for this weekend. Hope everyone found great things this weekend.
