Thrift Store Haul

One of the most viewed videos over at YouTube are THRIFT STORE HAULS. That's right, people upload videos sharing their purchases.  I love La Dama's haul videos- because I adore her, but how strange that strangers are watching other strangers talk on about their thrifty finds. Here's my Thrift Store Haul blog post: I'm going to share some of my recent thrift store scores with you!

First up: the Lemon Drop Up-Top. How tasty is this lemon yellow vintage 1960s hat? This is a treasure I picked up from a little hole in the wall charity shop in my neighborhood called Secondhand Rose. Donated by one of the nice volunteers who work there, I was told that it's from her 1968 wedding; as worn by her mother-in-law. I also bought one of her bridesmaid dresses, a sweet yellow and lace maxi, hand sewn for one of her besties. I LOVE it when you get the story behind a vintage find, especially when it's as sweet as this. She's been happily married ever since, so I'm sure there is good luck in this sweet confection of a hat!

#SHOPSECONDHANDFIRST. Thrift Store Scores for Fun + Profit

Egyptial Revival. This unique bangle has been in my possession for years but I recently cleaned it  and was surprised to see so much delicate detail that was hidden under decades of grime. It's probably a 1920s piece, a faience scarab set in an Egyptian Revival Art Deco setting. I scored this at one of my favorite Sacramento shops- Thrift Town over 5 years ago, it is truly a treasure! Look for a listing of it soon in the Etsy shop.
Spring Bouquet. You know I adore brooches and florals, so this lovely 60s era brooch was quickly plucked by me at a recent Value Village sale. Pearly and peridot beads form the petals on a charming gold tone stem- I think I paid $5 for it, and am trying my hardest not to keep it for myself. 
Double Take: Look by Marc Jacobs loafers. These gorgeous kicks were 50% off, and a major score when I picked them up for $5. They were promptly listed on eBay and just sold last night. A women's size 11, I'm glad these glam pony hair and patent leather loafers found somebody big enough to fill them! 
Golden Slippers. Cinderella would be jealous of my amazing find: Irregular Choice gold leather kitten heels. A $200 pair of shoes picked up for under $12. They fit me perfectly- so if they don't sell by next week, they may just wind up back in my closet.
Patent Platforms. And yet another shoe score from Value Village, these platform beauties have been something I've been lusting after, but haven't the budget for a brand new version of them. These trendy platform creepers turn my ankles into cankles but I don't care! I love how edgy they look with my vintage dresses. Nearly new, and bought 50% off of  $9.99, cankles or no cankles, these patent leather beauties are mine, mine, mine!
So do you like my thrift store haul? What great secondhand find have you scored lately?
