Thrifting Adventures

Last year one of my favorite antique malls closed down and I was heartbroken. Recently they reopened and Kerry and I spent the afternoon searching for treasures...and boy did we find some. I brought these home with me:

One of my favorite finds of the day was this Abe Lincoln book!

I also couldn't pass up this felt calendar from 1965. I fell in love with the color and font! And it found itself a home with my wreaths.

What do you love to look for while thrifting?? Lately I have been searching for Pyrex, mid century glasses, vintage kitchen towels, vintage childrens books, and of course afghans and quilts!

Overall it was one the best thrifting adventures I have been on! Kerry found some pretty amazing stuff too!!

I am so unbelievably jealous! You are a lucky girl. :) I love looking for vintage kitchen supplies, 1940's tablecloths, vintage sheets, cake stands, and books.
I'm super in love with that yarn wreath! Did you make it?
