As I said, the chip and dip set I showed you the other day wasn't my only treasure found while on the road a week ago. Here's the rest of my loot:
I bought this sweet silk flower brooch at the Steinbach MCC Thrift Store for 25 cents. :) I am currently a little obsessed with these silk flower brooches with the fabric stems. I've got two and I'm on the hunt to add more to my collection.
This coat is not vintage, but I couldn't resist it's similarity to a sailor's peacoat. That and the asymetrical buttons. Plus it fits perfectly...I just couldn't leave it at the store!
So those are the things I bought for myself.
These are the pieces I bought for the
hoard collection. I have a serious problem people... I cannot resist a good deal on vintage. Even if it doesn't fit me!
I am considering selling the following items. If you might be interested, email me and we can negotiate a price. I can send you measurements. We can talk about shipping cost etc...
I love men's vintage workwear. This coat is in amazing shape! It's in nearly new condition and is not stiff like lots of other canvas cotton work jackets. It's a mens small-medium, so I'm not sure if it will fit any of the men in my life.
My favourite part is this little patch on the breast pocket.
I also have a serious weakness for vintage straw bags. I have at least half a dozen in my collection. This one is in great shape! And it's a really nice size. A girl could keep a lot of summer essentials in this bag! :)
This 60's coat and hat set may be the best thing I bought while I was away. Unfortunately it is too big for me. I look ridiculous in it. But I just couldn't leave it in the store, it is just too awesome!
This photo does it no justice at all, due to the fact that my mannequin is more my size and is swallowed up by the coat as well. It's WAY better in person than in this photo...
And the hat. Pure 60's goodness.
So there they are, the spoils from my week on the road.
Hope you all had a good weekend! Happy Monday! :)
