Vintage thrifting bonanza!! (now spelled correctly)

Today I had to take a carload of stuff to the thrift store, because even a maximalist like myself has to make an effort at minimalism. Sooooo, while I was unloading the car I decided to pop into the shop, although I did not have high hopes, based on 99 percent of my past local thrifting excursions. Well, the thrifting gods smiled upon me, because not only was the store empty of other shoppers, I got these awesome things:
KILLER VINTAGE BARKCLOTH TIKI DRESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Open the window and you will hear me cheering!!  I have to wash it and iron it, and I cant wait to wear it!!



I also got these old Putz houses, yeah!!!! And some old glass made in the USA ornaments.

And, if the awesomeness of these finds wasnt enuf, I got these: Now an anvil will probably drop out of the sky......


  1. That's a gorgeous dress! What I've learned with thrifting is to never expect "when you least expect it, expect it"
    (P.S. your title says "thriting")

  2. Heavens, a misspelling! And me, a woman of letters! I fixed it. I was so overcome by thrifting glory that I couldnt even spell properly.
