Vintage Thingies Thursday...

I have been pretty blessed by the yardsale Gods lately. I think it is some sort of knack. BellaMomma will tell you I got it from her and certainly that is true. There is a pure joy that I get from the hunt, the stretching of a dollar and the nostalgia. I think I am an old soul. I feel connected somehow to these vintage treasures.

Most of you know that church sales are often the best places to find special vintage items- and often as astounding prices. Astounding in a good way, that is. I always think about the adorable little church ladies going through their homes and making donations. I am always proud to lug it all home and honor it.

Here is what I picked up this past weekend at a church sale and at our local Clothes Cottage.

An old beaded handbag- .10


A yummy vintage apron- .25


Old tea towels or napkins- 9 of them- $1.00


I am taking part today in Vintage Thingies Thursday over at a new blog for me- Coloradolady. Click here to visit her wonderful blog and see tons of other vintage treasures. If you have found me today via this fabulous list, please scroll down- you will find lots of other vintage finds.

You really have found a lot of cool things lately. I know what you mean about feeling like an old soul. I've often said the same thing. Have fun hunting.

Well, I can see that after your first two really thrifty buys, you went right out and spent the BIG BUCKS (oh, I guess that would be the big buck) on the tea towels!!!
Hehehehehehehehe

Lovely items all, though I find I am most partial to the beaded purse.

Suzanne said...

Oh, the apron! Oh, the vintage linens. Be still my heart. Seriously, you need to fill the store with such finds...... and Moon Pies.

Beautiful finds as always. I LOVE church sales, they really are the best way to find really good stuff super cheap. I will be scouring the paper and craigslist this afternoon to see if there are any going on in our town this weekend.

OHMY! That purse is fabulous. I have and use several vintage handbags, but none that are beaded. And I am goofy over that tea towel. The colors are so vibrant.
Glad you joined us at VTT.
