I have been good this past month (or bad, depending on how you'd like to view it) not visiting thrift stores every week. I am in the process of getting things together to donate so that I can make more room in my life. I didn't want to abandon Thrifted Thursdays, however, so I thought it would be fun to showcase some "groovy finds" *insert Simon and Garfunkel's Feelin' Groovy song here* from past thrifting excursions.
I picked up these silly bookshelf ends about a month ago. He was half off so I couldn't resist scooping him up for $2.50. I think it would look charming in a kids room or just in my future kooky house. His goofy grin and flowers won me over.
This is the oldest item (of mine) in this lot of items. This jewelry case was one of my first thrifted treasures in the beginning of college. I was drawn to the vibrant and retro patterned covering. I would have to say finding this piece really peaked my interest in thrifting.
This pretty crochet inspired vest was scooped up at 90 cents!! I haven't worn it out just yet, but am pretty excited to style it. It came without any creepy stains - that in itself is a major thrifting score :]
This may be one of my all time favorite thrifts. A 1970's Zonk the Donk Oxfam cut out by Belinda Lyon! How groovy is that Donky?? Part of me wants so badly to cut it out and sew it all together, but the other part of me doesn't want to damage it and preserve it. What would you do?
Hope you all are having a beautiful Thursday!
