recently thrifted

I’ve been in a bit of bling-buying mood recently, which usually spells t-r-o-u-b-l-e for my bank account. Instead of picking up the first sparkly thing that caught my eye at the thrifts (or 10 of them), I vowed to seek out well-made pieces that would fill a need in my collection and/or complement what I already have. Here are three of my favorite finds…

And I can’t even explain how delicate these shell earrings are ($10). Both were purchased from the lovely Holly at yesterdays’ Double Peace Studio’s pop-up.

When I spotted this beauty with abalone inlay ($12) at Second Début‘s St. Louis Park location, I had not choice but to snap it up.
