Florida Favorite Thrifted Finds!

Before I say (um, write) anything else, try saying that post title three times fast! It has a "She sells sea shells by the sea shore" feeling :)

Anyway, on to more exciting my finds from Brandon, Florida, from this past weekend! About time, right? I'm finally caught up on sleep :)

Crazy Print Beach Cover-Up, Consignment Shop ($2); Odd Mexican Woven Belt, Lighthouse Thrift ($1); Antique Book, Salvation Army ($1); Bass Leather Loafers, Goodwill ($4)

We ventured into a little consignment shop near my parent's house on Saturday after a couple thrift stops. I wasn't expecting to find anything, but when I saw this beach cover-up on the $2 rack, I had to have it! How cool is the print?

The belt is Mexican-style, and I guess you just tie it around your waist. I loved the colors and the $1 price tag- we'll see how I can style it up!

The antiques book is a no-brainer...a fun look at what old things went for in the past. I'm always up for learning new things about vintage items, so I get these books whenever I find them very cheap.

Lastly, the Bass shoes have to be my favorite find of Saturday's couple thrifts. They are brand-new super-soft leather and are perfect for work! I wore them on the way back to Richmond, and they were so comfy for speed-walking through the airport :)

I also went to a couple thrifts in Tampa on Monday before we flew out, so I'll have those and a couple more Brandon finds soon!



  1. Jealous of the loafers! I found a pair of platform suede Bass wedges in the Salvation Army on my last trip, but they're one size too small. As managed to squeeze my foot in there - I was very determined - but I'd never be able to walk around comfortably.

  2. Love that book! I always enjoy your thrift store finds!

  3. You always find the best things! Love those perfect!!


  4. What great finds!! I have a colorful belt just like that in my home country!!


I love your comments! You all are the best!
