Thrift Haul #3

July was a mess of heat, estate sales and popsicles for me. I wanted to share some of my most recent second-hand finds at various garage sales/thrift stores/flea markets with you for inspo!

IMG_6991One of my favorite most recent items! I’m into oriental-style decorative art and this little bud vase is amazing.

IMG_7005Another thing I tend to gravitate towards is feminine motifs. I think it’s super fascinating how different cultures/times portrayed women and my room is now covered in strong femme examples. This one is from a Pacific island circa mid-70s.

IMG_6995 I’m a sucker for kitschy and unnecessary little things like this but how beautiful is the dragonfly motif?

IMG_7004Lamps are inexplicably expensive even at Target. This little marble guy was a $1.50 and I’ll throw on a little white shade.

IMG_7002Kitchenware is a great thing to pick up for cheap at garage sales. It’s usually in almost perfect condition and kitchen shit can get really expensive even at Ikea. I also prefer the vintage styles.

IMG_6989Okay so I don’t yet have a coffee table, but I still buy coffee table books. Aesthetically pleasing books that you’ll probably never read but MUST have as a respectable Gen Z’er are everywhere at second hand markets. I loved this little houseplant book cover and the vintage dictionary circa 1950 was too cool for me to pass up. Anthropologie would probably charge you $30 for one of these tbh.

This jacket. I saw it and fell in love. I can actually picture the bleach-blonde teenage girl working at the diner wearing this jacket decades ago. Best part of all: the shop owner sold it to me for $10. This is going to be a favorite this fall and I love the story that it tells.
