With my grandchildren off from school last week I had the opportunity to spend time with two of them. At the beginning of the week there was my sweetie Kalob. He's fourteen now and just a fine young man. Of course the time was short with him and the time was spent with him. We ate and played video games and just gabbed about the things he likes and in less than 24 hours mom picked him up to be with a family member having surgery.
Later in the week my eldest daughter and I picked up my darling granddaughter. Amanda will be eighteen in August and a few days after her birthday will leave home to become a freshman in college. Where does the time go? She visited for four days and boy did Auntie, Mandy and I have fun. We shopped and thrifted, sewed and relaxed, gabbed and giggled and just had a wonderful time. We looked at and found her shoes and dresses. I didn't know she was into such cute dresses and we found her four. All thrifted and in wonderful condition. We also found her some great vintage shoes. She was all set.
We ended up visiting a total of eight thrift stores. I had literally felt like I had a four leaf clover in my pocket. I found so much that it seemed endless. I got whatever I could to build my store inventories. They included everything from some great Pyrex to Vera Bradley. Well look...see. This is only the tip of the iceberg of finds. I think I have enough to share through the end of March. I took advantage of the opportunity and thanked the universe for making the funds available to purchase so much.
As you can see there are two of the larger size Cinderella stacking Pyrex bowls, some NIP twin size vintage sheets, four vintage made in Japan Santa mugs and a Libbey's golden wheat pitcher.
Then there was a Vera Bradley bag and card holder, two vintage Libbey owl and bird glasses, vintage party picks, a Care Bear friends plate and a great collection of vintage invitations, contact paper and shelf liners. These items will be listed on my stores within the next couple of weeks, but there are stacks of other items to care for and prepare that were purchased this weekend and as of this writing the washer and dryer are humming away with some of the linens found. I hope everyone has a wonderful week and please feel free to stop by my stores and take a peek.
I'm sure I'll be listing other items found before I get to blog them all.
This is a close up of the libbey glasses. I've been unable to match them yet, but I will be doing an image search on them. They were just so different that I couldn't pass them up.
