a vintage affair

I’ve no idea when I’m going to wear it, the girl replied calmly. I only knew that I had to have it. Once I tried it on, well… She shrugged. The dress claimed me.
~ Isabel Wolff, A Vintage Affair

When I saw this tapestry purse, I remember the above lines. Seriously I’ve no idea when or where I’m going to wear it. Intricately made and in pristine condition, I just could not leave it behind.


Of late this hand-crafted Scala cloche wool hat is my favorite hat.


I tried not to buy more shoes or boots, yet this Frye boots was left behind on top of the shoe piles bin. The mustard color really strikes me yet pleasing. For $2.50 per pair, a girl just got to have it.


All this bounty is from the Goodwill Outlet where accessories sold by weight, $1.39/lb. I am a happy camper 😉 … err ..thrifter.

Linking up to Thrift Share Monday.

  1. Are you telling me you found a gorgeous pair of Frye Campus boots at GOODWILL? My god, that’s one of the steals of a lifetime!


  2. I keep meaning to go to the Goodwill outlet, one of these days darnit!
    Great finds too! I found a beautiful crewelwork purse a few years ago and still kick myself that I sold it instead of keeping it.


  3. I love the purse. I sold a petit point purse very similar to that one last year on Ebay(I also got mine at Goodwill). I would have loved keeping it, but it’s hard to fit diapers and snacks in such a little bag,lol.


  4. Gorgeous finds! I should come to the US just to thrift shop! Here in Italy there are less thrifty choices and surely not outlets like this. 🙂
    Maybe we could barter for Porcini mushrooms?! 🙂


    1. Nicole, Renee and Antonella, thanks for stopping by. Nicole, I tried to leave comments at your blog, for some reason it wont let me. Will try again in the future.
