As I was saying yesterday, the Waterfront Rescue Mission is a pretty neat thrift store :) It's always fun to go thrifting somewhere new- you never know what you'll find or how great the prices might be!
I had pretty good luck at WRM, where I found some awesome little vintage things along with two magazines from that huge magazine rack!
First:The Compleat I Hate To Cook Book by: Peg Bracken. I had to get this when I saw it, as I am exactly the type of person this was written for! I am not a chef, nor do I like to attempt to be, but this book will hopefully motivate me to get in the kitchen a little more often!
Second: Red and yellow framed vintage reading glasses. These are heavy and the lenses work more like magnifying glasses than modern reading glasses. I just love the look of them! So delightfully nerdy in the best way :) These might end up in the etsy shop, but for now they are hanging out on my desk.
Third: Handmade button necklace. I can't imagine the time and effort that it must've taken to make this hand-woven-together necklace! Each button is attached to the overlapping ones with sewing thread. It's so unique and lovely that I have to show you a close-up:
It's surprisingly difficult finding non-metal jewelry, so this already great find is extra-special to me since I can wear it! I find that having to look harder for unique jewelry that has no metal leads me to some pretty great pieces :) (My real bug ring...cough cough...)
What are your hurdles when thrift shopping? Or even shopping in general?
