While I found a few good pieces, this wasn't a very good trip. I was definitely disappointed in my haul. We're trying to stock up on fall pieces for the shop (we've got tons of shoes and bags, but need to get some cool weather dresses, tops, etc.). I found one dress and a couple pieces of jewelry, but that was it. I found a few other small treasures that made me feel a little happier, but I was definitely bummed. One little pick-me-up was that two of the girls at the shop stopped me to tell me that I was cute--at first, I thought they were talking about Aurora! But they loved my lipstick/outfit/tattoos, etc. Nothing like a compliment to get your in better spirits, am I right? And my sweet, patient Q (who wrestled Aurora throughout the aisles) promised we'd do a road trip around some of our favorite VA spots in a few weeks to make up for it.
Here is a little pictorial of our short-lived adventure:
Poncho was the find of the day--I also got the ottoman for $20, so I am not complaining. And this early 60s coloring book was fun to look at. I might frame it for Aurora's room.
So, that was our thrifting trip. Disappointing--we would have rather been at the beach all afternoon. But at least we got a couple of treasures out of it. Fingers crossed we can still get all our stuff home in the car on Sunday...
I'm hoping to visit a few antique stores around the area to see if I fare any better. I have rarely found clothes in antique stores, but I hear about other people finding great things all the time, so we'll see. I'm on the hunt for a new brooch (I really want an anchor!) and some vintage drinking glasses to replace two special ones that recently broke at home.
Wish me luck!
