March 2, 2009Vintage Finds – A Great Week
Holey Moley, last week was a fantastic week to go thrifting! I found a ton of wonderful things at my local thrift stores, and not all of them vintage. I scored a kitchenaid coffee grinder, worth $200 new, for $3.95 and a brand new box of assorted cuisinart blades, worth $60, and an attachement for my kitchenaid, worth $60, both for $10! Crazy! In addition to that madness, I bought two MCM side tables (which Hubby isn’t fond of, so to the basement they go) and these great items:
A great vintage oven mitt, from Quebec, which looks like it has rarely been used. The inside is a completely different mitt, and is removable for cleaning of the outer mitt. The inside mitt is also lined with a great soft floral material, which I love.
I also found about 2 yards of some great vintage upholstry fabric, which I grabbed up as soon as I saw it!
Pretty sweet, huh? I can’t wait to make some pillows out of this, or just hoard it for that perfect day when I find a chair that can give it a good home….
