Today was meant to be spent at a giant warehouse of an antique store in a wee little town north of the city. Sadly, when my future mother-in-law and I arrived we discovered it was closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. This ended up being perhaps for the best: we ended up going back into her town, where we had amazing luck at various thrift stores and antique stores.
A total steal was the large collection of bottles I have been looking for (to be used for wedding flowers-along with the old mason jars I bought this weekend). I found a collection of beer mugs with birds on them, a set of Pierre Cardin glasses (similar to these!!), cute hand painted plates, a couple of gorgeous vases, a 60's chip & dip set, and that Hermes scarf-still in the box. Total for all my purchases: $55. Indeed, a day well spent.


  1. Ummmm holy crap. That is an astronomically lucky thrifting day!

  2. I know, right? I love looking stuff up online after I buy it. Not because I really care what it is worth, I am just interested in the stuff I am drawn to. Some stuff I love because it was clearly mass produced, and other stuff I love because it appears so unique.
