Thrifting finds

Went Christmas shopping at some local thrift and vintage shops, and while I did find a couple of Christmas gifts, I also found a bunch of things I couldn't pass up. It's to be expected.... Photobucket
Kitty. He wanted to come home with me. Photobucket
Wool! I never find natural fiber yarn at thrift stores, at least not more than one skein. Yay!
Photobucket
Kitty box. For...sewing type things? I dunno, but look at how cute it is! Photobucket
Glitter cutting board. For cutting fancy things. Photobucket
Another "Paradise Kittens" shoebox. I have two of the shoeboxes, but none of that brand of shoes... Photobucket
Sparkly faceted bangles. For wearing as I cut fancy vegetables on my sparkly cutting board. Photobucket
Evil kitty flannel fabric. Enough to make a skirt! Photobucket
Mini Jello molds for making cute Jello. Hopefully making an appearance soon on my food blog. Photobucket
I collect the plain pink rimmed diner dishes, but this one was too cool to pass up. Photobucket
Knitting needles in really cool pink packaging. Photobucket
A bright 60s swimsuit, with cutouts! Not sure if I'll keep it, as I do live in Washington state, and have a bunch of other swimsuits that never get worn. But it's so cool!

I also thrift for all my holiday gifts, since I save money buying vintage I reason that a few items for me can also jump into the cart. Lovely kitty finds, I have a pink version of the plastic kitty box. The sparkly cutting board is amazing, wish a modern company would produce those!

I actually have a pair of Paradise Kittens pumps from the 60s. I'd LOVE to find a box like that to go with them!

Fun finds! I would have had a hard time saying no to that swimsuit too, even though I can count the number of times I've been in a swimsuit in the last 10 years on one hand.

I adore that kitty box... oh my goodness! I practically squealed. :)
