Sharing my weekly faves from the Nifty Thrift flickr group where people post pics of their nifty thrifty finds:

I give you the moccasin... my latest must-thrift shoe! There always seems to be one that eludes me. In fact, I wish these were my feet, as I would like a pair JUST LIKE THESE. The fringe, the beading, the bows... so cute and so perfect!
I am utterly smitten with this chair! The clean fluid lines of it combined with the organic quality of the woven seat are so visually pleasing to me. I have a bit of a thing for gorgeous mid-century modern chairs, which you may have guessed based on last week's picks, and this one is a real beauty! Especially positioned next to that really cool piece of art on the wall (click here for a better view).
I recently came across a bunch of Golden Hands handicrafts magazines from the seventies at a thrift store. I sent the best one off to my friend Milla in Finland as part of a care-package/swap that we did. It was full of awesomeness like this page that she included in this post on her lovely blog ,which by the way, I highly recommend, as it is always a joy to read :)
My point being, that if what I found in these handicrafts magazines along with this wonderful cover are any indication, this book is full of vintage wonder and delight, not to mention everything one might ever want to know about embroidery!
