I feel like I haven’t had much time for thrifting lately, which is probably a very relative assessment … since I still managed to squeeze in at least 2 or 3 trips. Ahem. And found a bunch of stuff. Surely, you are not surprised.
Ok, technically this wasn’t a thrift piece, since I saw it at the antique mall, but it’s cute and vintage so I decided to include it in the round-up. I’ve wanted a needlepoint bag for ages, even thought I am sure that I would almost never use it. They’re just so darn pretty! Anyway, this one was $40, which is too much for a whim … although, looking back, I’m kinda sad that I passed on it, did I mention that it was pretty?
This MaxMara dress had a fancy label, but the material looked and felt cheap. Pass.
I’m pretty sure this was authentic … and old. The outside of the bag was in good shape (the hardware was a bit tarnished), which is a testament to quality leather, but the inside was a bit rough (peeling, cracking, etc.). Passed on this too.
Not my style, and I’m still disappointed by the pricing trends at VV.
I love the quirky home stuffs/knick knacks you can find thrifting. This little sugar bowl appealed because of the green colour. At home, I realized it is a made-in-Canada piece from (likely) the 70s.
I collect milk glass/hobnail pieces, and this was a steal at $3. The antique mall prices these around $15-$20 a piece.
I don’t know what this is, but it’s adorable.
The leather on these ankle boots was super soft, so I bought them, even though they’re not quite booties (which is what I actually need).
You guys know that thrifted Anthropologie is my favourite kind of thrift score (well, that and Manolo Blahnik shoes), so I was pretty pumped about this Meadow Rue dress. Cute, comfy, and good for layering.
Another Anthro piece, which will be cute this summer.
Theory blazers are never amiss in my line of work, and for $8, this one was a no-brainer.
