Swanky Lady Living

Retro style for the modern girl!

Hello, my name is Carrie. I am an addict. September 15, 2009

Today was my favorite sort of day. My mom and I spent my day off thrifting and I hit the jackpot! It seemed like every place we went, I came out with bagfuls of vintage goodness. Some of it I will keep, but most of it will eventually get listed on my Etsy shop.

When I got home, I started unpacking everything and photographing my loot, but it was hot out and then these darn pesky little gnats came out of nowhere and started eating me alive. I then sprayed a thick layer of Off!, to which dozens of the little creeps stuck to.  I finally had to give up and head inside for a shower. Hopefully, tomorrow morning I can take some more pictures before work. Here are only a couple of today’s finds:

Also found today: vintage white Roller Derby skates with hot pink laces, two vintage world globes, a set of 1970’s  bowls with “popcorn” graphics, a yellow and gray-speckled white Therm-o-ware pitcher, vintage toast rack/mail organizer, two small 1960’s floral suitcases, various vintage linens and much more! (This is why I try to limit my thrifting adventures to 1-2 times a month!)
