Thrifty Finds!

When I first moved to St. Louis I was only familiar with a few neighborhoods and I spent a good deal of time wandering around (sometimes lost ;) discovering new parks, restaurants and shops. The city offers such an eclectic assortment of neighborhoods each offering its own unique style and feel. We have our own versions of little Italy and China Town. There are distinct hipster, posh and artists neighborhoods. As a new resident it was so exciting to head out in my free time and explore. I was in the habit of visiting one new place at least once a week.

More recently I realized I'd been slacking on this. With summer just around the corner I'm hoping to  pick it back up again. I started by branching out this week and visiting some great vintage and thrift stores on the south side of the city. There were so many wonderful things to look at, but only a few made it home with me.

Plastic Beaded Purse

Marbled Closure

This black beaded purse. My grandma used to have a collection of purses like this. Love it! The marbling on the closure is adorable.

White Beaded Necklace

White beaded necklace.

Vintage Smocked Pillow Pattern

This vintage smocked pillow pattern. Swoon. My summer project list overfloweth.

Have you made any great finds recently?

Have you been to Antique Row on Cherokee? Those are some pretty sweet shops. Good coffee, too.
