thrifting excursion

I went on a super duper thrifting escapade today with my mom & best friend! We had so much fun bonding over the old, antiquated items. We visited about six thrifts & spent about an hour in a huge fabric store. I felt like a kid in a candy shop getting absolutely giddy over all the floral prints they had. I bought a floral dress, some doilies, a floral jacket, an old birdcage (which I'm going to spray paint white & plant flowers in) but the best find of the day was a vintage sewing machine from way back when that we managed to get for an incredibly low price! I'll have pictures up tomorrow of some of the items.

Oh! & I should have an etsy shop up within the next few days that will stock vintage everything & maybe some photo prints :D

  3. The birdcage sounds really interesting! And congrats on the thrift store finds. I have such a hard time finding things I like. I guess its 'cause I only go to one thrift at a time...It sounds like you had a great day though.
