Thrifting Dreams Come True

I have this thing about laundry – this thing where I never do it and it piles up in the basket looking sloppy and unattractive. Modern laundry storage methods are utilitarian and dull so until today, I had settled for a generic plastic basket. Until today… when my dreams and unspoken wishes came true, and I found this utter gem for just $3.95

I think my heart stopped when I found it. Here’s a detail shot of the glittery handles.


I found a few other things, mostly for the site (so keep an eye out, these items will be listed!)

Sometimes I forget that the concept of “Organic” is older than I am but this vintage knit, with tags still on, is an attractive reminder.

This battered leather Etienne Aigner bag is possibly vintage at its best.

This 80s Bill Blass denim skirt is so strange and so wonderful (and tragically does not fit me).

Today was a day for labels, because I also found this reversible Etro pegasus belt.

Lastly, I love vintage colorblock flats. This pair is not only unworn but also in patent!

I also picked up a vintage sequined cardigan, and some really amazing old buttons. A good day, I think!

    Wow, what a gem! You truly scored there… The handles are great! But, I’m drooling over the shoes. Nice post!
