Thrifting Detour (Part 2)

After we finished breakfast we wandered in and out of most of the antique and thrift shops on the street. We would have visited all of them but two of them were closed for lunch. Completely adorable. I instantly just picture Andy Griffith heading home for a sandwich and a slice of peach pie. (And now I'm hungry for peach pie - Thanks me!)

Here's a collection of some of the things we found:

Wooden Sailor

1. Wooden Sailor

Star Trek Mugs!

2. Star Trek Mugs

Wall of Buttons

3. A wall of vintage buttons - all sorted and labeled.

OCD Buttons

4. Did you catch that? They were all sorted and labeled. Then they were stored in a large collection of bottles and jars each wrapped with a small piece of red twine and then sealed with packing tape and another label. If my collecting ever reaches this level of OCD please, in the name of all that is good, get me out of the house! That being said - I bought two jars. You knew it was coming.


5. A large collection of National Enquirer magazines from the 60's and 70's. Jaclyn Smith's husband totally looked like Fred from Scooby Do. Somebody needed to say it.

Aside from the two jars of buttons I only bought one thing. I'm still working on reducing the number of things that I own so new items need to be really practical for me to even consider bringing them home. The other item that we got is a cushioned bench that we found to sit at the end of our bed. It could use some new upholstery, but it's solidly built and the dogs can use it as a ladder to get up on the bed. No more late night elevator service for drinks of water! I'll try to post a picture of it later. It was a good find, but the best is yet to come! Third installment coming soon...
