Thrift Report: Owls and Bags!

I had some great luck at Goodwill last week - I found some really cute purses and suitcases! Last year, I saw a girl scarf up a red "Going to Grandma's" suitcase and ever since then, I've been on the hunt for one. I finally found one and it's in pretty great condition! I also found a blue/purple flowered suitcase (the handle is missing - anyone have suggestions on a replacement?) and a brown leather-ish granny-ish purse (love it), navy blue oversize clutch, and cute gold clutch.
I also found a box of really old dominoes and a brown leather-ish camera case.

The owls are from various shops - my mom picked up the wooden candlesticks and the pair of owls in that first photo. I snagged the owl salt and pepper shakers at the flea market this weekend. I also got that little deer for free from a kind vendor. I asked how much (with 75 cents in hand) and he told me to just take it. I'm going to hold onto it to accent a terrarium or planter!

This beautiful suitcase was picked up by my mom back in Louisville and it's gorgeous! It's in great condition!

This week, I will try to put some new shelves in my booth because I just found out Saturday night that my white enamel table sold. This might be my best month ever - my 2 most expensive items (that table and a cute file cabinet) both sold in February! Here's hoping March follows this great trend!!

  1. YAHOOOOOO! Same for me........I sold a dresser and lamp that were my highest items! We're making it through the winter (and I was so nervous that I wouldn't make rent).

  2. So happy you like that suitcase I picked up. If you remember, I pretty much had to talk you into saying yes on that one.
    It was great to see you this past weekend!

  3. I love that black suitcase! It would make a great side table don't you think? But that would be more vintage style than mid-century modern, but still too cute!

  4. love that flowered suitcase! i have been wanting one, but have never seen one around here!
    i'm so bummed i completely forgot about the flea market!! ugh!

  5. I had one of those flowered suitcases! My grandma bought it for me when I was little so I'd have a suitcase to use when I visited her. I'd forgotten all about it until I saw that picture.

  6. Congratulations on the sales! I started a booth for the first time two weeks ago, so it's inspiring to read what other people are doing. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I love that 'Going to Grandmas' suitcase. That is one thing that is on my want list.

  8. The floral suitcase is awesome! Congrats on good sales this month!
