Coming This Week

1940's Peach Blush Blouse

Champagne Damask Pleated Collar Blouse

Piccadilly Plaid 1960s Dress

Deep Azure 1950s Cotton Day Dress

This weekend I went to the creepiest Salvation Army in the scariest part of Detroit that I have ever been in. Naturally, it was a veritable treasure trove. Not to mention the lady at the checkout who called me "baby" at least 4 times, and the woman who was helping her with 2 inch long & curved fingernails and a 5 inch high bleached pompadour (I swear she was an extra from John Water's Cry Baby). Needless to say, I was in and out as though I was hitting a convenience store.

I am looking forward to posting new items and also to doing a photoshoot of a large bin of items I have just waiting in the wings. My mother and I thrifted and of course I was hoping not to find much because I have so much, but no, I found a ton although when I walked in I disdainfully declared the store "picked over". Never judge a book by it's cover!

Scary parts of Detroit!!!??? Today I was too scared to go to a thrift store in a bad-ish part of Atlanta . . . Now I wish I had gone!

That little denim dress is just the cutest.

Aaah! I love that champagne blouse. You know, I'm in Italy for the summer, and there are no thrift stores. None. It's the only thing I miss about home...
