Did Someone Call A Doctor?

I've been searching for a vintage doctor's bag for ages. Don't get me wrong, I find them all the time- in antique stores, and for $50 more than I'd like to pay!

When I found this beautiful old doctor's bag just sitting in the purse bin at Goodwill Outlet, I couldn't believe it! I hardly found anything else on Thursday, but that almost didn't matter because of my awesome find :)

Vintage Doctor's Bag, Goodwill Outlet ($2)

This was pretty much the only thing I found for me on Thursday. I did get a couple things for the shop, including a vintage fur hat that already sold, and these:

Both are up in the shop now, if you're interested! I decided that I'm going to go back to the thrift stores today after I work, so hopefully I'll have more luck :)

It was funny how busy Goodwill Outlet was on Thursday. There were so many people crowded around the misc. bins that the G.O. worker was yelling at them to calm down! I was glad that I was on the other side with the purses- I didn't dare go near the over-enthusiastic crowd with their gloved hands and bumper carts. Since when did thrifting become a combat sport?

Hope everyone has a good weekend- I have off on Monday, so hopefully I'll have time to organize my closet and list more etsy items!



  1. They had to do crowd control at Goodwill?! That's crazy but also hilarious. I'm glad I never have had to deal with that nonsense! I keep looking at your Etsy shop, too; one of these days I'll decide what I want.

  2. I love that Doctor's glad you didn't have to fight for it! Crazy!

  3. Yeah, I went back there today, and it was just as crazy! There were all these hippy dudes with ponytails diving into the bins, elbows out!


I love your comments! You all are the best!
