The Thrift Report: Orange Edition!

I thrift all the time, but I hadn't thrifted on a mission lately. Since I went so overboard back home in Louisville in October, I didn't visit many estate sales in October or shop for my booth very much. Now that it's November, I really need to get back into the swing of things and get some new inventory for my booth! I woke up early early this week and headed to estate sales before work!

Here's what I found!

I love vintage crewel work and was happy to find some really fun pieces lately! I also have been thinking about planting more succulents in cute vintage planters and selling them, so I picked up some planters. (More on succulent planting really soon!)

I picked up an awesome Vogue Sewing Book from 1970, some great vintage glasses, a Bambi book, a little "I love you mom" plaque, a really creepy Christmas elf, a gold clutch, an apron, an afghan, and an awesome chalkboard.

I'm not really big on orange, but almost everything I picked up recently has an orange tone to it! Interesting!

What have YOU found lately? :)
