Well, ya win some, ya lose some. My thrift finds this week are an odd mix of things, and two of them turned out to be duds. Care to guess? One is pretty obvious, but the other is hard to see.
Here is the first dud. This "old" case, as it was marked, has magnetic closures so it can't be that old. I kept looking at it in the store, going back and forth in my mind if it was vintage or not. I decided it was so bought it. Then decided it wasn't when I got home. Oh well. I might be able to sell it on Ebay. If not, it would make a good photo prop.
Here are a couple photos in those cookbooks. Food photography certainly has changed. I haven't had any luck selling these in the past, but if I find a few more, I can make a "lot" of them. They also are fun to use in collage projects if I'm stuck with them.
I've seen these letter holders painted bright colors on Etsy. All laziness aside, I plan to leave this as is. I know I'd never pick the right color.
Some wide 70s ties in patriotic/Bicentennial colors. Here is dud no. 2: the red striped one I shot laying across had a rip in the back that I didn't notice until I got home. I thought I looked at them carefully enough in the store.
Still found a few interesting things. As my mother was fond of saying: that's life in the big city.
Enjoy your day-- and look at those thrifts carefully!
Linking up with Sir Thrift-A-Lot. Take a peek.
