Is that a song title? If not, it should be. I guess I should google it. Let me explain the title of this post, as I’m sure at this point, you might be a bit confused. Last week after futzing with my booth at Monticello, I headed home and stopped at a couple thrift stores along the way. Didn’t really find much except a cute vintage picture frame which I felt I paid too much for. There were a few more thrift stores on the route home, but I was feeling tired and discouraged, so I decided to head home.
At the last minute, I decided I would just check out the Value Village store. I’ve had good luck there in the past, so I thought, what the heck. I headed straight to the jewelry counter and took a quick inventory as I’m always on the lookout for some cute rhinestone/vintage jewelry to use in my projects. This is what I found.
Now, to most people, this wouldn’t look like much, but to me…well, let’s just say that my first thought was this was waiting just for me because, let’s face it, I am that self-centered. $2.99 of vintage pink and rhinestone goodness! Here’s what it all looked like out of the bag.
Those chippy pink flowers with the rhinestone centers are awesome! Love them so much, can you tell? Guess what else was in the jewelry case, waiting just for me?
Vintage rhinestone earrings plus a spare. Love these too! And the best part, they were 50% off!
Today I had to head back to Monticello to clean up my booth after selling another pink cabinet. I finally remembered my camera so I took a couple pictures.
It was so hard to get the whole thing in at once. It’s a really small space, but as usual, I have a lot packed in there. The little white hutch and the white drop leaf table were purchases from Sylvi’s sale a couple weeks ago. They are perfect for my space.
On my way home today from Monticello, I stopped by that same Value Village and found nothing, but I tried another thrift store and look at what was there waiting just for me.
A big old bag of vintage buttons. Lots of great ones too. Here’s just a few I quickly picked out.
Am I a lucky girl, or what?
So, for all you junk loving peeps out there, tell me I’m not alone in my thinking that some junk is out there waiting just for you.
