I found these sweet trims in a thrift store in a tiny southern Colorado town. It's an independent, church-run thrift and I've found some great stuff in that little store so it's always worth a look when we're in the area visiting my grandparents. Once I bought two new-old-stock rolls of the most beautiful black and white checked ribbon for $1 each and they were one of the first things I ever sold on Etsy. When I bought them, there were several additional rolls and I've kicked myself a hundred times over for not buying it all! What ever was I thinking leaving those there?
Look at the detail! I bought it intending to resell but now it might be too dear to part with. I need to think of something really special to make with it so it doesn't just sit, hoarded, in a drawer.
Another thrift in small-town southern Colorado turned up this cute vintage souvenir tablecloth:
I've never been to Alaska and although I adore 1) vintage tablecloths and 2) vintage travel souvenirs, I think this one is destined for the Etsy shop as well.
A few other odds and ends:
The sweet divided child's plate was from Goodwill. This particular GW store is downtown, smack in the middle of Hipster-ville where they know their vintage, so I paid more than I would had I found it at my local, suburban store. The box of vintage Dennison labels, unusual wooden ruler, and box of old straws were from estate sales. Nothing super exciting but fun little finds that made me happy!
Tonight we're having some friends over to have dinner and watch the season premiere of the British version of the TV show Top Gear. I don't care a whit about cars, but I'll take any excuse to throw a party! These Oreo cream cupcakes are on the menu--yum!
Did you find any good junk this week? Do you watch Top Gear?
As usual, I'm linking up with Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday!
