I wore my newly thrifted bow blouse ($3, Goodwill) out for the first time to a party/yard sale (why are there not more of these?). It's handmade 70's vintage and the print is really lovely. The skirt was a thrifty gift from my mother-in-law. The little leather belt ($1.50, Mission Thrift) I love because it works with everything and happens to match these boots, old thrifted favorites that they are, quite nicely.
This is our friend Joey… rad style, no? He and his team, collectively known as Whiskeydrunk Cycles, threw an awesome block party/fundraising event to drum up some cash for the building of their railcar entry for this year's Handcar Regatta in September.
There was live music, kegs of beer, wholesome foods such as doughnuts and hotdogs, and flea market-style vendor booths… what more do you need on a Saturday afternoon, right? The vendors were selling everything from old bikes to unicorns (you‘ll see).
Here's last year’s rail-rod, the Thennagin Bomber, made road-ready, and here it was in action during the races last year.
There’s a large hairclip and 8 bobby pins hiding in there, in case you were wondering ;)
Our friends Lucie of Luce Goods and Melissa of My Friend Melissa, selling their handmade wares. Cute gear for both babies and bikers! Check out a few of my fave items. Both take email orders, plug plug ;)
Sorry girls, I realize Matt and Heather are totally stealing your thunder in the picture I took. Lucie and Melissa would be the girls on the left and right respectively, whose faces are totally hidden, oops!
Last but certainly not least…
The Sebastopol vintage shop East of Eden had a booth. A good amount of time was spent perusing and as you can see from that third pic, I wasn’t the only one loving the vintage that day : )
Unfortunately, the prices were vintage shop prices, not flea market prices, though I did splurge on one dress, a little white eyelet number that was just too good to leave behind, and at $25 it was actually one of the better deals.
You can get a little sneak peek here.
And here’s a little snippet of Clover enjoying her find of the day, just look at that grin… a dollar well spent I’d say!
