THURSDAY'S THRIFT....McCALL'S VINTAGE INSPIRATION

Today's thrift is inspired by a bunch of McCall's Vintage{1967-68} Needlework & crafts Mags. that I found at the goodwill for .99cents each. The clip on vintage bow tie and an original lamp from that era were also found at the same thrift. Lamp $6.99, bow tie .99cents and ten or so of these magazines totalling less than $10.00.
This brightly hued, yellow knit dress was $3.oo from Goodwill. I will wear this in the Spring with my red, white and blue scarf.
I was inspired by these 2 knit dresses from one of the pages in the vintage magazine....
The rope like belt is nautical so I paired the dress with a nautical vintage scarf.....
I love the different patterns in this dress.... I found this lace, vintage beauty for $3.oo at my local Goodwill on the same day...
An original Miss theme. This dress is in perfect condition.
I love the collar and the fact that it is fully lined. The color is a subtle peach and so pretty for Spring.
I consider myself fortunate to have access to a multitude of fabulous thrift stores in the South Jersey area.
Thanks as always for dropping in to check out Thursday's thrift. Don't forget to enter my giveway...I will be announcing the winner on Saturday. GOODLUCK!!! LOTS OF LOVE, DAWNXO

oh my gosh, i cant believe you got that first dress pictured for $3.00...seriously amazingly awesome! my boyfriend is goodwill obsessed. Literally- everything he owns is from there. People never have any idea with the polos, nice jeans and shoes he wears! All about being thrifty and on the look out for a good find!

i need to be a little more like that. YAY show us more!!

Hi dawn :)
Serious finds there! I love that color yellow and the little lace dress is stunning! We do not have places like goodwill here in Galway (boo)I so wish we did!
I have a few of the old McCall Mags myself, I love looking through them, especially the old ads, they are so ridiculous!
