I live for garage sale season in the summer. It is seriously one of the reasons that I love to go back to the Midwest for a vacation in the summer----for the garage sales, and for my family (of course!).
I am seriously jealous of all you Mid-westerners who get to enjoy awesome garage sales all the time. You have it made.
So, of course, while we were visiting family in Illinois for the summer, I had to do some garage-saling. And boy did I cram a lot of garage sales into two weekends (the last two were so hot---it wasn't worth it).
I got some amazing stuff. Today's edition came from a church garage sale. I spotted this box of trims from across the room and had to meander my way through a whole bunch of people to get to it. All the while, my heart was racing that someone was going to get there before me. But luckily I was the one crazy girl there who wanted a whole stash of vintage trim.
The whole bundle was $8 and worth every penny. I could have taken pictures of the whole lot because they are all old and just dreamy. But I will spare you and just show you a few of my favorites (although the golds really are my most favorites but didn't photograph well-boo).
The middle section with the flowers is printed leather.
I love baby rick rack and baby piping.
And don't we all wish it were still 19 cents a package? YES!!!!
I have another story about vintage trims and meeting someone....but I will save it for next week. We have yet another birthday to celebrate and then I have to face this week's laundry.
Any fun thrifts lately?
