1972 - A good year

Hey guys! How goes it? I am pretty excited the weekend is just around the corner. My boss has been out on vacation and I have had to pick up all the slack - there are only two designers where I work (him being one of them) so I have had a lot to stay on top of. Eeep!

Anywho. I haven't posted any thrift finds on here in awhile (or much else for that matter) so I thought it would be fun to show off one of my semi-recent finds. I found this beautiful 1972 Schwinn Breeze at an estate sale on St.Patrick's day, isn't the color perfect for the occasion?

I have dubbed her Schwinny. I went to the estate sale late in the afternoon hoping they still had their pyrex collection but I was out of luck - thankfully, everyone failed to notice this beauty in the garage. Everything on it is original and functions except for the back wheel which I had to have replaced. I am so glad warm weather is right around the corner so that I can show off my new ride :]

Have any of you thrifted anything neat lately? I would love to hear about it! Have a good weekend everyone.

  1. It is beautiful. I love the glitter handlebar grips. It is in such a great condition. You have to do an outfit post with it. Such a great find.
