Despite my recent diatribe to the contrary (see the post entitled "OH-BITCH-UARY!"), I am very pleased to announce that the oh-so-enjoyable and affordable hobby of thrift store shopping is still very much alive and well!
I would like to share with you a few amazing (or "amaze-balls" as the kids these days would so sassily say!) thrift store finds I stumbled onto today at a small, unassuming little treasure shack that shall remain nameless -- in a suburb of Los Angeles, the name of which I also shan't ever utter aloud or even type for fear the hipsters, fashion fags and retro gals would descend like ravenous vultures snatching up all my vintage booty like so much carrion. And speaking of carrion, let's carry on, shall we?
Here are the veritable treasures I plundered from the past today...
|Vintage Hawaiiana souvenir pinochle cards in plastic box, $1|
|Vintage terry cloth apron with lemons and daisies, $3|
|4 beautiful vintage silk bow ties, $1 each|
|Mint condition white vinyl ice bucket with clear acrylic handle and lid knob, $3|
|Stunning goldtone vintage cufflinks: One pair with sailfish/swordfish & onyx and one pair with very unique, space-age looking chartreuse gemstone, $2.50 each|
|Vintage ashtray from now-defunct Hollywood Golden age hotspot Perino's, $2|
|And then, at a Goodwill of all places, I found these...|
Vintage Mid-Century teak salt & pepper shakers (approx 7" tall), $3.19
