things thrifted


a few recently thrifted treasures -- all from a recent trip up to washington.

the dress (which was $7) is a new favorite in my closet -- i styled it back in this post. and i was thrilled to find a delicate dessert plate with mustard roses. the mini sugar shaker is sweet in petite form -- we've a massive one, always filled + ready for robbie's cheerios, but i like the look of this little one. and the deer, well at a buck apiece, are a great retro addition to my collection.

    1. that's so interesting, because that's actually what i called them too, growing up. i grew up in washignton d.c. on the east coast of the US & have noticed many of my colloquialisms seem to line up with things said in the UK, rather than other parts of the country. so yes, the charity shop! maybe i'll have to bring that back. my mother will be proud. : )

  3. What beautiful finds! Amazing you found something for so cheap! Vintage is in such high demand...at least whenever I go, clothing is never under $30.

  4. First my eyes caught the newest additions to your deer collection. I've tried to search for anything even slightly similar around here and on etsy too (but those are sold with over $20, I just can't afford that + delivery + possible taxes for one small deer figurine .. or bare to pay that price when You can find them with just one buck :D) And seems like a really lovely dress too! ^^

    Glad I stopped by at your blog after a while, this layout & new fonts and all seem really cute.

    1. i hear ya! we wanted some for our wedding cake, and i'd been looking for years + years with that in mind, but never found any. we finally caved and ordered some on easy for far too much...and then we found about a thousand of 'em at the thrift store the year after we got married. oy! that's how those things go, right? hold out (and dig, dig, dig -- i always find them stashed under other housewares) -- and you'll find some! i'm sending you luck. ; )

    1. it's so great! it's really tough to find vintage dresses at the thrift shops around here because they're so picked over + vintage resellers come in + sweep up all the good stuff. so i was thrilled to find such a good one! admittedly, i did have to pull some giant shoulder pads out though. haha.
