Thrifted Remix: Crazy Print Shirt

Since I thrifted my black and white patterned shirt in Florida this June, it's been on the blog quite a bit! It's super silky and comfortable, and the print reminds me of those pictures you cross your eyes at. (You know the ones?)

Crazy Print Shirt, Goodwill ($3)
I pretty much wore this shirt the same way every time. Sunglasses, jeans, statement necklace...check!

I do think the red necklace works best with the shirt, though :) Probably because I thrifted both on the same day!

Happy Thursday everyone :)


PS: Check out Myriam's post featuring the sunnies I recently sent her! Her outfit is awesome, as always :)

Come Sail Away

At Sunday's estate sale, it seemed like I found unique treasures everywhere I turned! Two of them were little wooden boxes. I grabbed both: a parrot one for the shop, and a sailboat one for me :)

Sailboat Wooden Box, Estate Sale 9-26-10
The funny thing is, I can't really ride on sailboats. I get super, super sea-sick! (Try saying that 10 times fast :))

I couldn't resist this cute little scene, though. The bird; the water; the little boat. I can see the allure of the salty breeze and the open ocean. For me, it's enough to have a little piece of that to look at every day :)

An Animal Bag and a Cowgirl

I seem to be saying this every week, but I went to the best estate sale on Sunday! The parking situation was less than ideal (I had to maneuver my little Saturn into the woods), but it was definitely worth it :)

I'll save one of the finds to share with you tomorrow, but here are my favorite two:

Wool Cowboy Hat; Animal Print Bag; Both: Estate Sale 9-26-10
I love the cowboy hat- so much so that I've decided to be a cowgirl for Halloween this year :) I have the plaid flannel shirt, the cowboy boots, and now the hat! (Click here for an etsy treasury I made for inspiration!)

And do I even have to explain my love for the bag? It's weird and wonderful- pretty much exactly what I look for when I'm thrifting or estate saling! I'm trying to decide whether or not to sell it in my etsy shop. Let me know if you can't live without it, and I'll list it for you!

Have a great day!

Square Shooter

I was so excited to pull this old Polaroid Square Shooter camera-- with the original case and instructions-- out of the Goodwill Outlet bins Saturday!

I found out pretty quickly that the film still inside was no good. But I'm still excited about this really neat find :)

Vintage Polaroid Square Shooter, Goodwill Outlet (<$2)
My favorite thing about it is the lens! I love the look of older cameras. The boxy shape and the round lens make such a pretty combination :)

Everything else that I thrifted Saturday is up in the etsy shop! Check it out :)

My Thrifting Outfit: Ray Bans and Sunshine

I got some vintage Ray Bans on eBay for seven bucks, and I couldn't wait to try them out! Yesterday was hot and sunny, so it was the perfect opportunity :) The verdict? I love them! (Can you tell?)

Vintage Ray Bans, eBay ($7); Shirt, Goodwill ($3); Jeans, TJMaxx ($14); Fringe Sandals, Goodwill Outlet ($2); Leather Backpack, Goodwill Outlet ($2); Vintage Cameo Necklace, Heritage Antiques ($10)
Since I'm wearing quite a few new things, I thought I'd do a cost breakdown. I've stopped doing it lately because it's so hard to remember the prices of most of my thrifted stuff :)

I hope everyone's having a great weekend! Today, I'm going to be cleaning and then relaxing. Ahhh, Sundays :)


PS: Nope, that's not my truck in the background :) If it was, I'd have a sweet vintage bike by now!

Where Can I Find That? ((The Vintage Floral Shirt))

We've probably all seen old floral shirts at our favorite thrifts, but I was so excited when I found this one! Some vintage florals just fit in easier with modern clothes than others do :)

Here are some great options currently available in vintage etsy shops:

Vintage Floral Top; Vintage 1980's Floral Oversized Shirt;  Long Sleeve Button Up Floral Blouse; 80s Bold Floral Tee Top
I love my floral shirt- I know it'll get lots of wear over the fall months!

Have a great Saturday, everyone :) I work this morning, but then I'll be off to my favorite thrifts! I can't wait!

Guy Finds Friday: Plane Awesome

Hi and welcome to another Guy Finds Friday with Josh!

This week I'm going to show you something Amanda thrifted for me before we even got married. She found this awesome wooden F-16 at a Goodwill in our Florida hometown, and now it has a place of honor on our mantle.

Wooden Plane, Goodwill of Brandon
I've loved planes since I was little, so this is a cool thing to have. And although it's not as interactive as the RC planes my dad and I fly, it fits in our apartment a little better!

I think that it helps to put a little bit of 'man' in our 'mantle', you know?

Until next week,

Estate Sale Treasure

This past Sunday, the hubby and I went to a wonderful estate sale. It was run by the same company that did the last really good estate sale I went to. There were cool vintage things everywhere, not a ton of people, and 50% off everything :) My favorite estate sale combination, for sure.

Vintage Purse with Metal Lizard; Made in Japan Piggy Bank; 1970s Chess Set; Vintage 'Pocket Secretary'
I got all these treasures, plus a cameo pendant and earrings (now on sale in the shop), a pretty floral sheet, and a seagull pin! It was great :)

My favorite of the finds above has to be the chess set. It opens up to hold all the chess pieces in their own little slots! (Hmmm, perhaps now I should learn how to actually play chess?)

I hope your week's going well :)

The One ((Vintage Bike)) That Got Away

I thought I'd do a quick post on my lunch break about the amazing vintage bike I had to walk away from at Love of Jesus on Saturday. Why? Because I have a small car that doesn't fit a bike! I can see the appeal of having a pickup truck!

Vintage Bike, Love of Jesus
Isn't she a beaut? Everything I'm looking for in a vintage bike was there: the curved handles, the leather seat, the tray on the back. If only I lived close enough to Love of Jesus to ride it home!

Have a great rest of your day :)


And The Winner Is....

.....Catie F.!!!!

Congrats, Catie- thanks for reading! Shoot me an email at with your address so I can send get your starfish earrings on their way to you :)

Have a great day, everyone!!

The Fire King

Remember how I posted the other day about my lack of luck at Goodwill Outlet lately? While it's still super-crowded, I managed to pull a couple treasures from the bins on Saturday!

FireKing Mug; Raffia Necklace/Belt; Jar of Buttons; Vintage Ray Ban Sunglasses Case; All: Goodwill Outlet
I couldn't resist the mug mostly because of it's fall coloring! It's vintage FireKing, which is neat. The necklace/belt thing will most likely end up in the etsy shop, but it's really cool :)

I got the buttons in hopes of making a button necklace myself sometime, and you all know how much I love Ray Bans! The vintage case was too neat not to grab :)

You have the rest of today to enter the etsy shop giveaway HERE :) I added a couple new things to the shop this weekend, so be sure to check it out :)

A Real Fly Bunny

I seem to be currently obsessed with old stuffed animals, but it's like they find me! When I spotted an old (probably 30s or 40s) Gund bunny, I had to grab him :)

While some collectors only search out perfect old things, I think I prefer well-loved items. Something that has a history and a story is so much more interesting than if it were kept in it's box on a shelf for all those years.

Vintage Gund Bunny, Love of Jesus; Fly London Leather Flats, Goodwill Outlet
On an almost opposite note, check out these flats I thrifted at Goodwill Outlet by Fly London! They fit perfectly and are so comfortable.

While I may like my thrifted vintage items to be well-loved, with my thrifted shoes I prefer the just-right, broken-in feel. These are perfection!

And honestly, what's cooler than shoes with flies on them?! (Not real ones, of course.)

Oh, and don't forget to enter the Another's Treasure etsy shop giveaway I'm having :) Enter HERE, and the winner will be posted on the 22nd!

My Thrifting Outfit: Floral Rayon

I almost couldn't believe my luck when I found an awesome floral rayon shirt at Goodwill the other day! It's just the right amount of girlie while still being very comfortable. And the lightweight fabric is perfect for the 80-something days we've been having here in Virginia.

Clubmasters, Good Samaritan; Floral Shirt, Goodwill; Coconut Necklace, Busch Gardens; Jeans, Target Clearance; Minnetonka Sandals, Love of Jesus; Leather Backpack, Goodwill Outlet
As you can see, I tried to climb up this large pile of mulch for my photos today. Turns out it was kind of unstable! Whoops! This is the only photo Josh took where I wasn't about to topple over :)

I'm actually sporting mine today too, so you'll see them in my outfit post tomorrow :)

Guy Finds Friday: The Pyromaniac

Hi and welcome to another Guy Finds Friday with Josh!

This past Friday I went antiquing with the wife and I found something my inner pyromaniac has always wanted: strike anywhere matches! You can light them by striking them on pretty much any hard surface.

They are hard to find nowadays, as they are a little bit of a fire hazard. (A few of my friends have found them online, though.)

Strike Anywhere Matches and Holder; Cigar Cutter; Both: Heritage Antiques
The other thing I picked up at the antique store that night is this neat cigar cutter. It offers three different ways of cutting cigars, depending on their size. The design of the plastic handle is pretty sweet, too.

With these finds, I can cut a cigar and light it almost anywhere. (Just don't tell my wife!)

Until next week,

Playing With Wire :)

When I found a bundle of vintage colorful wire at West End Antiques for two bucks, I knew I'd find some use for it! It's just so colorful and unusual :)

I did play with it a bit the other day, and I came up with these:

Vintage Wire, West End Antiques ($2)
I love the little heart rings I made! Because the wire is covered in a paper-like material, I can wear them too :)

Let me know if you have any other ideas for the rest of it! I'd love to hear them!

Breakfast at Tiffany's

You honestly never know what you'll find at my local Goodwill, but lately there have been some great things!

Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon a beautiful Tiffany & Co. clock :) Granted, it doesn't work and it's kind of beat up, but it's still pretty to look at!

Broken Tiffany & Co. Travel Clock; Spotted Scarf; Both: Goodwill
Pretty awesome :) And that spotted scarf in the background? Totally like the blue one and the yellow one I have! I love the style and ease of polka dotted scarves, what can I say?

Hope your week is going well!

Hats Off to Ya!

I have always liked wearing hats in theory. They pull an outfit together, and they're cute! But when you're wearing one, doesn't it sometimes seem like a hassle?

Maybe I'm just a bit too clumsy to pull off wearing hats all the time. I always seem to drop it or trip and it flies off! This hat is making me want to try again, though:

Vintage Felt Hat, Good Samaritan ($2.99)
It's the perfect fall hat! The tan and brown wool, the shape, the fit- everything about it I love :)

Have you thrifted something lately for fall? Let me know, and we'll post it on Things We Thrifted! I really would like to get some more posts up on there, and I know you guys have some mad thrifting skills :)


Monday, September 13, 2010

Oh, G.O.

Goodwill Outlet used to be my place. My favorite store, always easily yielding perfect treasures. Then, as if out of nowhere, everyone started going there. And they all are in search of the same things as me.

This has been making me kind of disappointed lately, especially since I've gotten emails from people who heard about it from me! I don't want to be that kind of person that has a 'secret' thrift shop that I never share with anyone, though.

Anyway, all this to say that thrifting karma (or someone with really similar taste) caught up to me there on Saturday!

Perfect Leather Backpack Purse; Vintage Lacoste Sweater; Leather Clogs; All: Goodwill Outlet
The best thing about all these treasures is that none of them were where they should've been! They were all right together in one of the misc bins, just waiting for me to find them :)

So, thanks person who left them, because the clogs I can actually walk in, and the sweater fits perfectly too, and the purse is just what I've been looking for! :)

My Thrifting Outfit: Hello, Birdie

Not too long ago I posted about searching for the perfect 70s poncho for fall. Well, a couple days later I found an amazing one on etsy for a great price!

Of course, I couldn't wait to wear it, so I threw it on over some comfy clothes and headed out to thrift yesterday morning.

Vintage Poncho, Here on etsy; Plaid Button-Down, Target; Jeans, Goodwill; Minnetonka Moccasins, Goodwill Outlet; Vintage Capezio Bag, Good Samaritan; Vintage Clubmaster Sunglasses, Good Samaritan; Bird Pin, Heritage Antiques
Unfortunately, it got too hot during the afternoon and I had to take off my lovely poncho. But I just know that cooler weather is around the corner. You can bet I'll be pairing this comfy piece with layers and boots!

Have a great, relaxing Sunday everyone :)

Where Can I Find That? ((The Button Necklace))

I've decided to switch up my Saturday posts, after exhausting my 'What I'm Wanting' ideas :) Now Saturdays will be devoted to where you can find some of my favorite thrifted treasures!

I had to start off with the item I've gotten the most comments on, both online and in person: my button necklace.

I searched etsy for a match, and I found quite a few that are similar:

Vintage 1960s Pink Button Necklace; Yellow Button Necklace With Gold Accents; Vintage Multicolored Button Necklace; Vintage Handmade Button Necklace
Just click on the name and it will lead you to the necklace on etsy!

I love my button necklace, which I thrifted in Pensacola, Florida, when I was visiting in April. I really love the thrift stores there, and I need to get back sometime soon!

I hope everyone has a great weekend :)

Guy Finds Friday: The Black Knight Always Triumphs

Hi everyone, and welcome to another Guy Finds Friday with Josh!

This week, I'm going to show you a sweet vintage pipe I picked up a couple weekends ago. It was only five bucks, which made it even more great in my book.

Vintage Pipe, Midlothian Antiques ($5)
The shape is unique and the grain of the wood is really nice, which are two main things I look for when I'm searching out old pipes. (No chips in the mouthpiece helps too!)

Nothing beats the name of this one, though. The Black Knight. Awesome.

Until next week,

An Inside Peek

I've been meaning to take more apartment pictures, and I finally remembered to! Here are a couple new spots in our cute little abode.

Top Square:
1. My pretty thrifted lamp I got at a Goodwill in Chesterfield for five bucks with the shade!
2. A flame-less candle from Goodwill Outlet about a year ago.
3. A really neat German camera from G.O.
4. A book about coins and their values from Love of Jesus and a 1920s copy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
5. My trusty 1980s alarm clock I got about a year ago at Salvation Army.
6. Huge shark tooth that I've had so long I can't remember where I got it! (Maybe one of my parents will be able to help me remember!)

Middle Square:
1. My lovely vintage typewriter that Grammy gave me last Christmas!! I love, love, love it! (The case for it is on to the left of it.)
2. 1980s Lane wooden chest from Good Samaritan, that I can't believe I got for twenty bucks!
3. + 4. Vintage Teddy Bears, thrifted and estate saled.
5. Crystal from when we went 'mining' in North Carolina over Christmas.

Bottom Square:
1. - 3. Guitar-shaped wall hangers from my mom :) (Both the hubby and I play guitar- he plays electric and bass and I play acoustic.)
4. Purse that my dad got me in Africa- so cool!
5. Vintage leather backpack purse for thrifting.
6. Awesome estate saled newspaper carrier bag!

Hope your week's going well :)

The Love of Jesus

Many of you may know that I shop at the Love of Jesus thrift store weekly, and that it's one of my favorites. The staff is always super-friendly, they are open 7 days a week, and there are treasures to be found for nearly everyone :)

Here are a couple things I got there this past weekend:

Carved Jesus Fish; Leather Briefcase; Both: Love of Jesus Thrift
I really like the carved Jesus fish. I am a Christian and have a soft spot for that particular fish design especially.

The leather briefcase was a no-brainer. Despite it's roominess, it's pretty lightweight and will fit my laptop!

I hope your week is going well :)


PS: I have decided to utilize the Things We Thrifted Blog an easier way. Just email me at isanotherstreasure(at)hotmail(dot)com if you want to be a contributor to the blog and I'll add you to the author list. Then you can post your finds there whenever you please!

The Friendly Ghost

My wonderful hubby and I first dated when we were 13 and 14. One of the very first presents he gave me was an adorable Ty teddy bear that I always kept close to me, despite Josh moving away a couple years later.

When I went off to college, I left that bear at home. I thought I'd probably keep it forever and didn't want to loose it at school. Ironically, the bear was lost when a hurricane hit my hometown about a month later.

So imagine how happy I was to look in a bin at Goodwill Outlet six years after the storm and see this little guy: (It was like seeing a friendly ghost!)

2000 Ty Stuffed Bear, Goodwill Outlet ($1)
It's in perfect condition, with the original tag and bow! (Which is much better condition than mine was in...mine was well-loved, as they say.) And the most amazing thing to me is that, after all these years, Josh knew exactly what it was when I showed him. He couldn't believe it either!

I think it's safe to say that this bear will stay close by for a long time. Sometimes what's lost can be found in the strangest places. Even Goodwill Outlet bins :)

My Thrifting Outfit: Hello Fall?

This outfit is actually from last Thursday when I got off work early and stopped by Goodwill Outlet. But Saturday's summery outfit seemed to go before Thursday's fall(y?) one. A long way of saying that I'm posting these outfits out of order!

Anyway, here's what I wore Thursday afternoon:

Vintage Clubmaster Sunglasses, Good Samaritan; Vintage Rayon Dress as Shirt, Goodwill; Wooden Man Bolo, etsy; Jeans, Target Clearance; Bag, Goodwill Outlet; Tassel Flats, Love of Jesus
As you can see, I am slightly obsesssed with my new Target jeans I got on clearance the other day! They have such a great fit and are super comfortable too!

Josh and I had a great time at Busch Gardens yesterday, even though we had to wait in a long line of cars to get in. We also got to go to our favorite Williamsburg antique mall :)

I hope everyone's having a great long weekend, and I'll show you this weekend's finds this week :)

My Thrifting Outfit: Summer's End

While it's definitely still hot outside, I'm ready for summer to be over! I wore my favorite dotted rayon shirt and my shell necklace yesterday as a goodbye to the hottest season.

Here's to hoping that my nod to the end of summer helps fall come sooner!

Rayon Shirt, Thrift Store in Florida; Tank, F21; Jeans, Target Clearance; Tassel Flats, Love of Jesus; Purse, Goodwill Outlet; Sunglasses, Goodwill Outlet
I found some pretty neat stuff yesterday- including some stuff for the etsy shop :)

Josh and I are off to Busch Gardens for the day, so peace out!!

What I'm Wanting: A Fall-Time Poncho

I was browsing etsy the other day and ended up looking mostly at fall items. Unfortunately, it's not quite fall in Richmond yet, but I'm looking forward to when it cools down a bit!

On the top of my fall thrift list is an earth-tone 70s poncho. You know, something that goes well with changing leaves and crisp air.

Here's one that I've got on my etsy favorites list:

Vintage 1970s Poncho can be purchased HERE in the etsy shop Baptuma
Of course, I'm still on the hunt for the perfect cowboy boots, too. Ahh, fall. Please come soon!

I have to work this morning (sigh) but I will be hitting the thrift stores as soon as I get off! What's on your list for fall?

Guy Finds Friday: One Luxuriant Moustache

Welcome to another Guy Finds Friday with Josh!

This week I'm showing you guys something Amanda and I thrifted almost a year ago, but it's so cool. We found this mirror/picture hybrid at Family Thrift for a mere $2.99:

Moustache Mirror, Family Thrift ($2.99)
Being a guy who sports facial hair, I can appreciate a crazy moustache. I would grow one like this myself, but I'd likely get booted out of the apartment and my job!

Oh well. I guess I'll have to stick to my clean-cut beard and saying things moustached guys would say. You know, like 'indubidibly' and 'top notch.' While enjoying a pipe.

Until next week,

Estate Sale Sunshine

Sunday, I made the mistake of arriving right at noon for an estate sale. This was a major one, with numbers given out and a huge line. I had nothing better to do, so I braved the humidity and the chatty line-standers and waited.

I'm glad I did, because although it wasn't the best estate sale of the summer, it was pretty darn good!

Vintage Hat, $2; Sunshine While in Line, Free (lol); Vintage Austrian Teddy Bear, $2; Hand-painted Jewelry Box, $1
I had to include the pretty sunshine photo, because I spent more time outside in line looking through those trees than I did in the house! I do admit that it was nice not having many people inside when my chance came to look around, though.

As you can see, I'm digging old stuffed bears right now! This little guy is sitting with my quilted teddy bear on top of my Lane wooden chest. It looks so cute with the vintage typewriter Grammy gave me next to it! I'll have to take a photo and show you :)

I hope your week's going well! I get off early today since I have to work Saturday, but then it's a 2 and a half day weekend!!! Ah, holidays.

Thrifty Blogger of the Month: Kyla of Blue Collar Catwalk!

I am so excited to feature one of my very favorites as this month's Thrifty Blogger: Kyla of Blue Collar Catwalk!

She's the master of mixing great clothing store deals with 30 cent thrifted finds. Whenever I see one of these unique and just plain cool pieces incorporated in an outfit, I am in awe.

Of course, I couldn't wait to ask her some thrifting questions and share her experience with you!

Another's TreasureWhen did you first start thrift shopping, and why did you begin?

Blue Collar Catwalk: I actually started thrifting a long, LONG time ago in middle school. I used to LOVE thrifting when I was in high school (circa Nirvana, grunge and My So-Called Life), but didn't do it as much when I was in college and the couple of years after that.

When I started blogging, I really got into it again. I think part of it was seeing all the creative and affordable gems that other bloggers found at thrift stores, paired with a lack of money after quitting my full time job last summer. Now, I can't get enough!

I love the opportunity to find unique, high-quality items for next to nothing. AND there's not going to be 50 people walking around town with the exact same thing!

An outfit featuring Kyla's 30 cent denim vest and her dog Iggy!, Courtesy of Blue Collar Catwalk
Click HERE for her original post.
AT: What do you consider your best thrifted find ever?

BCC: Ooh - that's a tough one! I found an amazing military-inspired blazer last winter and the perfect black suede skirt. My most worn item is a Talbot's khaki safari jacket.

AT: What would be the ultimate coolest thing to see for a dollar at a thrift store?

BCC: Hmmm ... designer shoes in my size! I never find shoes at Goodwill, and I'm so jealous of the amazing shoes, especially leather boots, that others have found!

AT: Do you have any tips on finding great things while thrifting? Please share!

BCC: Patience, patience, patience. Once in a while, I'll go to Goodwill just to mosey around and see what jumps out at me, but 99% of the time, I go with a few things in mind. Nothing too specific, but just enough of an idea of what I want to help narrow my search a little, like high-waisted pants, floral skirt, etc. Otherwise, it's too overwhelming.

I also like to scan the racks for fabrics, colors or prints that jump out at me. It's a great way to find bold pieces. And, of course, try on everything (if you can). Sizes are all over the place, so it's important to keep an open mind.

Lastly, I try to make it a rule not too buy things just because they're cheap. It's a really bad habit to get into, because before you know it, you've got a pile at home of $50 worth of thrifted crap!

I try to steer clear of anything that needs a lot of altering - a hem is easy, but I'm really selective of anything that needs more (even with the best intentions, I almost never get to it all). And anything that shows a lot of wear (like pilling, tears, crappy quality) should just stay on the racks!


Make sure to check out Kyla's great personal style blog Blue Collar Catwalk here :)
