Thrifted Thursday - Feelin' Goovy

Hi everyone! How's it going? Have any fun plans for the weekend? I am looking forward to half off sales at my favorite thrift spots for the holiday :] Other than that I have no major plans. I can't wait for the following weekend because my brother will be starring in his fall play - Lysistrata Jones - a smart pop musical comedy loosely based on Aristophanes' ancient Greek antiwar comedy. The title characters, Lysistrata Jones, is a modern-day cheerleader who convinces her squad to stop "giving it up" to their boyfriends on the Athens University basketball team until the team ends their long losing streak and wins a game, Librettist Douglas Carter Beane was nominated for a Drama Desk Award and Tony Award for best book of a musical for Lysistrata Jones, "a musical about Faith, Hoops and Chastity." - Henry is playing the lead basketball player and love interest. I am assuming it will be pretty similar to High School Musical, haha.

Anywhooo... let's get back on track. It is Thrifted Thursday, and I have been up to a lot of thrifting. As I announced earlier in the week - I have decided to open up a vintage shop at the beginning of next year - I am pretty excited about it. I will have a legitimate reason to keep up my bad thrifting habits, haha. Here is a mini glimpse at some of my recent finds -

I found these groovy dresses on Sunday. They were half off since they had been sold as "Halloween Costumes", which meant I picked them up for $2 & $5. I really want to go to some ball with the Brady Bunch in the yellow dress, haha.

If you follow me on Instagram these books will look familiar to you. I scooped up copies of the 1957 edition of Oliver Twist, 1958 edition of Vanity fair, and 1960's editions of Little Men and Best in Children's Books set. They were all in beautiful condition aaaand I am totally a sucker when it comes to judging a (literal) book by it's cover.

I had to save the best for last (in my opinion). I added a huuuge chunk to my pyrex collection over the weekend. I found pyrex cups for 50 cents each aaand had a $20 coupon to use at one of my favorite thrift stores. This = mega pyrex haul (plus the two pieces of fireking and glassbake). I can't wait to make all of my Thanksgiving dishes with all of my new pyrex. It is going to be on pretty Thanksgiving. Tehehe.

Do any of you collect pyrex? It is quite addicting. Anywho. I hope you have a beautiful day.

  10. Are you opening an online shop or a little storefront? My friend will never give me back the owl cookie jar (well, I did give it to her, stupid me) and if you ever put yours up for sale I will snatch it up as quick as you list ;)

  11. Amazing finds! I don't collect Pyrex, but my best friend does, and so it always catches my eye in the store! It's so cheerful and wholesome! I am drooling over the books, too!

  12. Wow, I wish we had a treasure trove of the kind of thrift stores and trunk shows you seem to have where you live. I think I would take all those pyrex dishwares, even if I have nowhere to put them! -Jessica L
