A' thriftin' I will go

It's been forever since I've done one of these posts, so I thought I'd share some recent finds:


Vintage cardi, $3.50, Hospice Thrift

Official Boy Scout shorts (ready for adventure), $1, Hospice Thrift
and vintage plaid scarf, $1, Welfare League Thrift

50's sheer pintuck blouse, $2, Hospice Thrift

The blouse had some button issues, but I was able to find these three floating around in a button bin and I think they'll make pretty decent replacements.

Ahoy! sweater top, $2.50, Salvation Army

Embroidered cropped denim jacket, $5.50, Salvation Army

Vintage deadstock Levi's high-waisted skirt, $1, Salvation Army

Crazy floral tee, .80, Friends of the Neighborhood Thrift

Shiny tri-tone lace-ups, $2.50, Salvation Army
Wine colored Liz Claiborne lace-ups, $2.50, Hospice Thrift

I do have one more find to share, but this one deserves a post all its own, so stay tuned!

Gorgeous finds--another fan here of the floral sweater and that delicate pintuck blouse. The sailor sweater is so cute, too.

kristen said...

Seeing your thrift finds makes my day! I love them!

I've been meaning to ask you how your kitchen re-model is coming along. Can't wait to see photos!

Milla said...

Loot! Galore. I'm particularly impressed with the shorts and the shoes. Lots 50s here, and masculine stuff I'm sure you'll turn feminine in a magical slight-of-hand...

Andrea said...

oh my! what beauties :) I especially love that pretty embroidered cardigan & that little denim jacket. This post makes me want to make a mad dash for the thrift stores!

Sal said...

How do you DO it, Missa?!?! The floral cardi, the pintuck blouse, those SHINY OXFORDS! What a haul.

Hannah said...

That blouse is so pretty, and I can't believe you thrifted those oxfords for $2.50! I really like the denim jacket too, I seem to be attracted to Navajo inspired items at the moment and the embroidery on this jacket kind of reminds me of those.

terrific finds! that 50s pintuck blouse is so lovely, and i think the new buttons will be perfect ( and maybe even take it to a new level of loveliness, if there is such a thing).

That pintuck top is so lovely.

Ms. B said...

Love the pintuck blouse and the floral cardigan!!!

Jenifir said...

Amazing finds. The fifties pintuch blouse and great shoes that fit-wow!

Razzle Dazzle Cosmic Flower said...

Amazing finds indeed! Oh my goodness that blouse has me dreaming about it! I hope you enjoy your finds and have a magical time in them :)

WildBirdVintage said...

I think if I had found that flower sweater I would have dropped dead in the thrift store. A-mazing!

Caroline said...

Each find is better than the next! I think if I'm being forced to choose, the denim jacket is my favorite. I mean...it's a denim jacket but it's got a rad geometric print. Could anything beat that?

Also, those shiny shoes are pretty rad.

Teenysparkles said...

Can't wait to see your outfit posts of these. I like the sailor sweater the best i think. You are one super thrifter! (They don't call her Thriftcandy for nothin!)

Lisa said...

Wow, you have amazing thrift stores near where you live. I'm kinda jealous:)

Nicky said...

Oh. My. Word. That sweater is so fantastic!!!!!!! and the brown shoes are tugging at my heart!

That hankie craft project is so cute! Fun idea...and I love your "tie it on your purse" idea too- I've got to try that. Happy Wednesday!

Toosdai said...

those SHOES! saving the best for last! so lovely!

Alexa said...

I can't wait to see how you style the pintuck blouse and sailor top. Such beauties!

goodwillgirl said...

Totally jealous of the sailor top. Good finds. I bought a man's sweater yesterday. I'm going to wear it, too.

Manja said...

Missa, I am so jealous - those are some amazing finds!!! I can't wait to see how you paired those amazing shiny lace ups!

andrea the pomegranates said...

Mamushka Marie said...

oh my goodness that sweater top is killing me with its cuteness! loving all your finds!

meg said...

EVERY.SINGLE.ITEM. i love and want to own and am sooooo happy that you found to enjoy yourself!
i always look at your finds and sigh that i don't live in california (which looks to be the thrift capital of the world!)

Lady, you done good! I had that exact same floral sweater and a matching handbag YEARS AGO, that i acquired at the sacto's hospice thrift. the sweater was like new in perfect condition...until i wore it out. lovely thing. and your shoe finds are major score. love the both of them and can't believe you got them so cheaply. prices must be waaaay lower where you live than my stomping grounds.
