keep calm and thrift on

just a few things i thrifted today. i am on a clothing/shoes/accessories shopping ban, so maybe i'm overcompensating on the home goods. i don't tell me.

one vintage afghan i don't need.
one picture i don't need (but i will keep calm and carry on).
three trays i don't need.
five cocktail glasses i don't need.
one easter dress that eva doesn't need, but come on, look at it!

but considering i found it all for about $20, and i got to spend some quality time with both my mother-in-law and a friend, i think it was worth it.

did you do any shopping today?
happy saturday!

  1. I picked up a beautiful fur coat yesterday for $5.00. Then I left it on a chair in the living room and my boyfriend's dog ate part of it...

  2. Love my thrifty Mpls. Friends! :-)

  3. All my shopping right now is for our basement finish. It's not very exciting shopping for plumbing and light fixtures, but I'm excited about what's to come!

  4. I've been on a bit of a thrifting ban myself...but I have simply shifted funds into the entertainment budget. ;)

  5. Great finds! I love the dress and glasses best of all :)

  6. What great finds!
    The term "need" is subjective...

  8. ooo, i like that frame! it's cute. and vintage. :D


  9. A friend called me today and said that she needed me which meant she needed to thrift. We went and I shopped which makes it 3 or 4 trips to the thrift already this month and I am only supposed to do 2 trips. I did get things that I would wear today and like right now though, so that makes it ok. I can't wait to see what you do thrift in clothing, shoes, accessories...dawn suitcase vignettes xo
