THURSDAY'S THRIFT....Heaven on earth...


Hi thrifty friends and darling followers...I was in thrift heaven the other night while at my local Goodwill because I found a ton of vintage clothing and other items with tags still attached. I felt so fortunate!! I can only imagine that a store was emptied out and dropped off at the thrift !!!
For starters how about this adorable bag from Tuerkes of Philadelphia? How appropriate since it's the closest major city to my home. I love the inside lining with it's mod. flowery print. My cost $2.99. Next up is this vintage, plaid dress by COS COB with its lightweight material and front pocket that can definitely be worn for Spring. My cost $5.99...don't hate me too much...I love you!

Another favorite is this Flower/Butterfly, vintage vest that can be worn with or without a collared shirt underneath. I paired it with a yellow beaded necklace. It is by Lucky Pierre of Paris and New York as indicated on the label. My cost was $2.99....sweet deal I know.
Lastly, is this lightweight cotton, vintage dress by Helen Whiting. I love the print on this little number and its pretty blue buttons are all intact. My cost was $5.99....
A better view of the print and colors...



Thank you for visiting me...it is always a pleasure to have you visit...Lots of love, Dawn xo

DAWN! i think i'm going to have to stop reading your blog. your posts make me TOO much jealous. i am loving the bag, the last dress & the white mirror that is in the picture! i'm inlove with anything milk glass or whatever it is they call it. i saw an amazing tutorial the other day that says to take white puff paint, but big dots all over an object & then spray paint it white.. it will give a smiliar look.. i'm going to try as soon as i finish the reisling in my funky wine bottle! hope all is well, i emailed you- hope you got it. lots of love :)
