August 21, 2013Finds Wednesday!
Usually garage sale season is the best time to score vintage stuff around here, however this year, the pickins have been a little slim! I’ve finally got some finds to share, though.
I was super stoked to find these two sets of glasses (I did get more of the same that aren’t shown here). I love black and gold glassware, they go well with the partial set of black and gold glassware I already have, and I now have enough pieces to use for everyday, yahoo!
I bought these Life magazines at a garage sale that had boxes upon boxes of them – I would say the majority of the issues from the 60s. The seller had them priced at 5/$1, and if you bought less than 5, he was still going to charge you $1, so these were the 5 I went with.
From the same garage sale I also got these two Eaton’s catalogues. I looooove browsing old catalogues so I couldn’t pass these up. Stay tuned for some entertaining scans from these catalogues!
Finally, this sweater excited me to no end, because it actually fits me! I am 5’11” tall, which can make wearing vintage a little tricky, since the sleeves are usually nowhere near long enough. However, this one was handmade, and apparently custom made for someone with long arms! I also love that there’s a lot of black in the design, since I wear a lot of black, and it’s not always very common in vintage wear. I am a little sad as the vintage metal zipper is starting to wear quite a bit at the bottom, and will probably have to be replaced.
I did have one more find, however it’s so awesome it deserves it’s own post! Here’s a little sneak peek though, can you guess what it is?
Stay tuned for the full reveal of my awesome find!
