She Shoots, She Scores

I was going to do a White Wednesday post today, but since I’ve been doing quite a bit of junking/shopping the last couple weeks, I thought I would show you what I’ve been finding.  I have had some really good luck and have found some neat stuff.  Some of the following will be joining me at the Barn House Flea Market coming up July 31st, and some will end up in my mall spaces.  Here we go.

I have been finding some adorable vintage lamps lately and just yesterday I came across a box of vintage doll clothes at one of my favorite thrift stores. The stack of plates came from Value Village and I got the coat hooks at Aurora Mills.

Love these little dresses, especially that pink polka dot one in front.

Don’t you love this sign?  I found it and the flag at an estate sale.  The shopping cart with back basket came from a garage sale in my neighborhood. It will be getting a cool liner and will be coming to Barn House with me.

These hangers which I got from Randy at Madison Park as well as this super cool vintage hat are keepers.

I was on the hunt for rhinestone buttons at Expo last weekend.  Here is what I found.

Vintage long underwear.  Keeping one and selling one.

And finally,

Lovely floral hanging clothing cover.

Wow, all that shopping makes me tired.  I’m off to do a little housework now.  Hope you enjoyed my found treasures.  I’ll be working on some projects the next couple days so I’ll be giving you a few sneak peaks of some things I’m bringing to Barn House.

Oooooooh Lisa! Sure you don't want to part with the Vintage hat and some of those awesome buttons and pins? Too yummy!
Sounds like you had a good time at the Expo!

Going to do my firstBooth at a show in Oct at Timi's event in Monroe! >yikes<! I've gone "ADD" the last couple of days (what to make/restore first???) Sure I'll settle down soon!

Enjoy your week!

Hugs,

Rochelle said...

Boy, if I only had a fraction of the kind of thrift stores you have in Oregon, I would be in thrift heaven. Nothing worth the hunt in our local ones here....I think it might be time for a road trip to visit my parents soon!
Great finds!
