THURSDAY'S THRIFT...private eye

How cute is this large private eye coin purse?  Theresa at the church thrift who greeted me with a hug and a kiss saved it for me from last week's donations...yay!! 

The label on the inside reads Private Eye...love it!  5 bucks and it's vintage

This is going into my  personal collection of vintage carpet bags seen here.  I paid $3.99 for this at Goodwill.

Love the chain link handle....

This vintage owl is just in time for Fall...whoot!  $1.99 

I think he is from the late 70's and ready to hang...just my kinda item!

I had to have these older beach tags...free!  They were attached to a shirt so I removed them with the intention of purchasing.  The clerk just gave them to me.  What will I do with them?  I will let you know but hopefully something creative.

This super soft leather bag by JG Hook was $3.99 at Goodwill.  With a little leather cleaner and a soft cloth she will be just right!

I'm hooked!

These vintage jingle bells for .99cents were  a must have.  I will leave them intact and use this for styling a vignette around Christmas. 
Thursday's Thrift was a four hour journey between 2 different stores including travel time, the church thrift and my favorite Goodwill.  Here are just a few random things I picked up!

I have never thrifted in my life. I keep saying that I have to do it but never do. NY has a lot of great shops but time is alwyas an issue with me. Too much on my plate. I shall work harder because I see that a lot of bloggers are finding unique and original pieces.
