March Thriftventure!!!

It is Spring Break here ,and we have been having some good old fashioned fun here at the Pagoda.Which included a delicious thriftventure.Found: a Pendleton wool jacket,possibly from the 40's and at 40% off of 3.98. I was only recently lamenting to someone that I got rid of a couple of Pendleton jackets a few years back,and the thriftgods must have heard me cause I LOVE this one(it must have been waiting for me) with its sweet 3/4 length sleeves. I also seem to buy things in multiples and here are a second pair of leopard shoes I have bought within a month ,but these were just 4.98!


1 lovely black lace something for 2.98(can't wait to layer this somehow). An ecru and brown lace short slip,also 2.98,and 2 lace doilies for 98 cents.


Assorted goodies here,including a black fiesta skirt for the little blossom,1.98.A pearl belt,abag of mini ric rac and lace finish,a reproduction german paper egg,asian goodies that appear egg-shaped (therefore destined for non-traditional easter decor),and an embroidered strawberry napkin,EACH 98 cents.I also purchased this simple Oililly long sleeved tee(also for my littlest),for 2.98 I am crazy for the print,and you may click to enlarge it or any other print.

Last ,and my fave find of the day,was this unopened brand new in the box Easybake Oven,for 4.98!!!! You can bet it has already been part of our BIG springbreak fun!I am off to the theatre tonite this is my last weekend(always bittersweet),but I will be back before the week ends to share more of our big fun!!!!!!!!!!

What a find, you have a most excellent eye! I especially love the shoes and lovely lace numbers, can't wait to see what you wear with them.

That is one cute jacket. About the easybake, some of them have been recalled (And that box looks like a recalled one!). Here is a link to the recall, wouldn't want the girls getting injured!

I always wanted an EBO and never got one. That one is going on the therapy list for sure. :) LOVE that Pendleton jacket! Gorgeous colors, and I love the cut. It will look great with your red hair!

I found a bed jacket this week! I finally checked out the lingerie section and there she was. Now if I could just get up the guts to actually wear it! LOL I need some of your fantastic fashion mixing advice to help me come up with an outfit.

Karen Beth said...

Great finds! I love that you post chronicles of your thrifting adventures here, complete with photos!

Love the jacket and shoes. Really nice! Do you have a large collection of vintage lingerie? I do but rarely do anything with it. Sad, I know.

Don't you just LOVE the thrift-gods? They are my favorites. :)

break a leg on closing weekend, it is a strange feeling, the partial joy of being able to go back to you "real" life...but then there is that close bond of everyone in the show that disappears...

lol about the easy bake oven, I had a mini oven when I was little, I broke it by putting pennies in it.

How fun! I wish I had been there too!! I mean, you are not really that far away from me? I could just swing on up there one day???Couldn't I? I am sooooo sorry it took me so long to get here. I am beyond swamped. I am so swamped I don't even know what the heck I am doing.... I had been stuffing cards in Cello sleeves when I realized.. they didn't have my logo on the back and I had forgotten the envelope.. Then I did all that, and found myself having stuffed the correct cards in backwards???? What the heck is wrong with me??? Yikearrooo!!! I love your finds. And an easy back overn for that price??????? AMAZING!!!!xxo, love you oodles, Vanessa

There is simply too much cool thrift stuff in Texas for one girl to handle. I will be right down to help.

Those shoes are to die for! I remember baking in my Easy Bake Oven. Those were some Good Cakes! :)
However, I remember my sister tripping over something and falling on my Easy Bake Oven and taking a nasty chunk of skin out of her a--! Why am I giggling right now??? That's just not right.

I am loving the lacy numbers in particular!!!

tatjana said...

I love the little lacy things, so cute! I can't wait til I am in Toronto again and have thrifts finds, maybe even a couple as fun as yours :) I just got to read your last post about your girls, they sound too wonderful for words...it is my dream to someday have such happy and creative babies, you must be a fabulous mom!

Winnie baked me a birthday cake last week in her Easy Bake oven.

I liked it, even with the cat paw print.

Apparently the cat helped decorate the cake...

Rebecca said...

You found some treasures on this trip! You certainly do have an eye for lovely things. :)
