Today was such a bright and sunny day! Felt like summer. On our way to Portland to treasure hunt for my shop, my mother and I passed a little yard sale. We stopped, and when the woman running it saw me said "Oh, I have some things in my basement you might be interested in." She brought out an armful of 40s and 50s vintage dresses, really pretty things that will go in my shop this week, they just need a little mending. It pays to dress up, you never know :)
At the sale I also bought the cutest vintage hot roller set, the woman told me she bought it brand new, still in its box, and hardly used it. It has everything and does look brand new. I've been looking for a hot roller set for a while, but all the new ones are just not very pretty, so I was really excited to find this. I also found a cute pair of cat eyes I think will go in the shop, but we'll see, I'm tempted to keep them.
In Portland I found bunch of great dresses as well, all 50s. So this week get ready for a flood of pretty dresses :) I pay so much more attention to my shop when I put things I like in it. This week I've kind of neglected it since I didn't have a great week as far as finding items goes, I have a big pile still to list, but it's mostly late 60s and 70s stuff which I'm not that into. So it will probably never get listed :)
After treasure hunting we stopped by Hattie's Vintage, a fabulous store we had not been to forever. The owner is super nice and helpful, and I seriously wanted everything there. There were lots of late 30s early 40s housedresses which I love, and just an overall great selection of 40s clothing. And some really pretty 30s tea frocks I fell in love with. My mother got a great 50s Hawaiian dress, and I got frilly early 50s pink dress I think I will wear tomorrow. Its pretty much "cute" in a dress.
