happy hunting!

when i was younger i worked in many a thrift & vintage store and loved being able to snag the good items up first.  now that i have three kids (and one on the way), its a bit more challenging to go into small thrift/vintage stores & peruse garage/estate sales, but i still love to try.  over the past two weeks i have explored some new places & some old haunts.

sarah & i (and her mom) had a great time exploring the hidden gems in salem. first up, a really cool, super large, retro shortening can (perfect for my kitchen!):

a vintage lid, for my collection.(.25)  this will look great in my bedroom or studio:

i am in love with this yellow lamp.  it was only $6.  i am on the hunt for the perfect shade now:

i had to go to eugene last monday.  i got to spend part of the day with my friend jen (bits of envy) and we hit one of my favorite places, the awesome st vincent’s.  i found a beautiful vintage necklace.  it looks great with my grayling earrings and was only $5.99!

i have been really watching my money lately and i was elated to find boots!!  here are the vintage charles david in two tone brown leather & suede. ($15)

an amazing black leather boot, made in italy! ($10)

yesterday, micah & i went to garage & estate sales in portland.  i found a kelly green wool scarf for half off ($2).  i can’t wait to wear it with my black wool coat & new black boots!

beautiful vintage bowl for our eggs.  half off too, so $7.

we also found a stainless toaster/convection oven for $20, a Tokyo Giants cap for $1(and three other baseball cap finds) and a red vintage metal chair for Frankie’s room for $5.  it was so nice to explore portland and have a quiet, lazy day (and inexpensive too!) together. happy hunting!

  1. I don’t see the red chair… sounds perfect! Love seeing your treasures, glad I got to help hunt for some of them 😉 Have you thought of doing a fabric lamp shade? (you know you’ve got the perfect fabric in your stash!) You could just spray glue an old one, or Joann’s has the self adesive kind that you just cut out your fabric and stick on…
