I've been to several thrift stores in the past weeks and have found absolutely nothing of value. Lots of lots of things for sale - but nothing worth buying. It has been disappointing to say the least. This past weekend I went to three different thrift stores on Saturday looking for Pyrex. There was nothing. I did however find a few records and some vintage craft books - all for Christmas.
These are the craft books. They were published in the early 1970's. I love the projects in them. They are retro enough that they are back in style again - and not dated and ugly. I swear Martha Stewart must find vintage craft mags and steal their ideas. Some of the projects remind me of things I've seen in her magazines. I was thinking of listing these on etsy but now I'm not sure. The projects are great.
I also bought two records at the same store. I am dreaming of the day when I can actually play these. I want a vintage stereo/record player in the worst way - but have yet to find one that I can afford or I like the looks of. Since these records were only a quarter each I bought them anyway - for the future. I mean who can resist an album with vintage Barbra? I can't.
