Some Recent Finds

Hi friends! I briefly mentioned in my last post that posting would be a bit slow in the coming week or two, and it will continue to be. I just thought I would post some of my favorite vintage finds from last week. I hope you all had a great weekend and had some great […]

Some Recent Finds, Barbie Edititon

So, I collect Barbies now. Though I hadn’t given her much thought since I was 12 or so, I have always had a soft spot in my heart for that busty beauty. Recently my Barbie love has grown. About four or five months ago I purchased my first vintage Barbie (well, her friend), Alan, whom […]

Some Recent Finds

Here are some of my vintage finds from the past week. I hope you guys don’t mind that these recent finds posts become regular, I sure do enjoy doing them. I would love to see what you came home with as well, if you have a blog and post pictures of your thrifty finds, please […]

San Diego State College Yearbook, 1952

Here is the second yearbook in the lot that I bought a week ago (here is the first). I actually enjoyed this one more than the 1951 yearbook. It appears that in 1952 they had a much larger budget, or perhaps just more creative yearbook staff. This one has more photos, a better layout, better […]

San Diego State College Yearbook, 1951

I didn’t mention in my last post about the two yearbooks I picked up at the swap meet over the weekend. San Diego State College (SDSU) yearbooks from 1951 and 1952. I may or may not have been influenced by Solanah’s amazing yearbook collection to purchase these, and I am so happy I did. I […]

Some Recent Finds

I have had some really fantastic finds lately. These days I mostly regular the swap meet, though I will hit up a few thrift stores throughout the week to hold me over until the weekend arrives again. There is an amazing one only five minutes from our house. I wake up at 6 AM, throw […]

Franciscan Autumn

Last year I shared some photos of my main dish set, Vernonware Raffia. This is my second dish collection, Franciscan Autumn (I have shared a picture of this pattern in a Vintage Dinnerware post). As luck would have it, shortly after both of these posts I came across a huge lot of dishes on Craigslist, […]

Some Finds from the Swap Meet

Last weekend we had quite a bit of luck at the swap meet. Just look at this haul! It was such a rush finding all these things, I really haven’t done much ‘junking’ in quite some time. I don’t know what my favorite is, but I think I am most smitten with the figurines, just […]

Dazzles, Palm Springs

This is Dazzles, my very favorite shop in Palm Springs. Sure, it’s mostly out of my price range, but just look at it, a vintage lovers dream! Though the prices are a bit high for this thrift store addict, I have to visit this shop every time we go to the desert. It really is […]

New Clock

Sometimes you have to go back to an estate sale, because there is something there that you can’t stop thinking about. Luckily for me, this pretty guy was still waiting for me to take him home from the epic 60s estate sale–and he was an extra 20% off. Now I just need to figure out […]
