Interesting Items

One of my favorite things about my job is getting boxes of new items in at the thrift store. I love popping the boxes open one by one and sorting through them to see what fun vintage items are in there. I enjoy finding unique, interesting items that not everyone may be looking for but will definitely get comments. Sometimes I get carried away and decide to take the really cool stuff home with me... but I have gotten better about my picking and choosing. :) These are some of the things I'm loving in our store right now...

Animal figures with jeweled eyes are so cute. They are always an unexpected color like this pink Siamese.

 I love Vintage boxes with neat colors and graphics.

Vintage patterns are fun and the pictures are always a little goofy. These remind me of my Barbie and Ken paperdolls that I had as a little girl.
These small, jointed Napco Dolls were wrapped up in a tiny box. Clearly they had been treasured for a long time.
I have a love for old boxes and compartments so I absolutely adore this small painted sewing box with drawers for needles, buttons and pins. Hard telling what I will get in next! :)

  1. I love the cats! Don't know what I would do with them, but I love them :) I know what you mean about getting pickier. After a year or so of thrifting, I've started learning which are good buys for me and which aren't :)
