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!):
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!
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!
