It was made all the worse by the fact that I've been good the past couple months.
Not because I have any ounce of self-control when it comes to thrifting, but because the stores around here have been pretty awful of late. Slim-to-no pickings. So I took a thrift-break.
Then my friend and I had this brilliant idea to host a 1920's speakeasy-esque party. We OBVIOUSLY need vintage cocktail glasses, right?!?
But then I found this...
|Vintage Sunbeam juicer bowl attachment!!|
Not just any Jadeite... Vaseline glass Jadeite! It glows!
|Blue rose patterned Federal Glass bowls!|
Pristine and pretty!
|Another Federal Glass bowl!|
Kitschy Kitchen tools pattern!
Husband was not amused. But he still drove me to another thrift.
I had to find those vintage cocktail glasses remember?!!
The next store yielded two cocktail glasses and a lovely copy of The Landower Legacy by Victoria Holt. (Despite having zero shelf space left, I cannot leave a thrift shop without checking the book section. It would be a CRIME to leave a book behind! Especially out-of-print beloved authors!)
Still feeling the thrift itch, we headed to one more store. Where I struck thrift gold with three more vintage cocktail glasses, a beautiful inlaid wood tray, and four GLORIOUS green glasses!!!
|This looks 1920s-ish right?|
|Four different people stopped me in the check-out line to look|
at this stunning serving tray. It's so pretty!!
|Oh hello there green uranium glass...|
|... I thought I saw you glowing!!|
Husband just reminded me that I'm visiting Portland in three weeks and should probably be saving my money.
He's such a downer when he's right.
Until we thrift again...
