Vintage Finds


My mom and I went down to this huge vintage and antique store last week and I made out like a bandit. Sometimes I find antique stores to be overwhelming because there's so much going on and so much to look at, but it never ceases to amaze me at some of the stuff I find.


Some things aren't vintage or antique at all, but they're still fun little knick-knacks, like this magnet of a wonderful Goethe quote (so true, isn't it?)


A carpet clutch! This clutch is literally made out of carpet. I couldn't pass it up because I have no idea when or where I'd ever be able to find a clutch as unusual as this.


And I got this cute burlap parrot bag. Perfect beach bag, dontchathink?


An old letterman's letter. E for Emily, naturally. I'm on the look out for a cute vintage letterman's sweater to sew it on to.


I didn't know what this was when I first saw it and then my mom goes, "grandma used to have one of these! It's a lipstick holder." I thought it was such a fancy way to display your lipsticks. Where would you find something like this nowadays?

and finally I found this dress. I thought it was so cute and feminine and the funniest thing about it-- it's Rodarte for Target. It's not even slightly vintage. It's not even old. But in my size for $7, I took it.

All in all, I feel like it was a successful shopping trip!
