recently thrifted

Well, hello there!

I stopped by an estate sale in Edina last Saturday on my way to my big brother’s house. It was crowded and slightly claustrophobic, as estate sales on Saturday afternoons typically are. I’ll never understand how seemingly polite people can get so pushy. I mean geez, there’s a whole house full of stuff to go around! Calm the hell down, you know? Anyway, here are a few of the pretties I found…

Six vintage slates, made in Portugal, $2 each

A prom souvenir plate from 1977, $1

Handmade denim rag rug, $2

About the sheets I used as a backdrop, aren’t they lovely? I got the set (fitted and flat sheets, two pillowcases) at Salvation Army for around $6 all together. The print is slightly Liberty of London-ish, isn’t it?

Anyway, if you have the hankering to do some treasure-hutning of your own this weekend, here are a handful of estate sales happening around the metro area…8836 7th Ave. N., Golden Valley, 2420 Irving Ave. S., Minneapolis4514 So. Mallard Trail, Eagan7510 Cahill Road, #220, Edina, 4105 Vera Cruz Ave. N, Robbinsdale.

And with that, I’m off to drink drinks at Haute Dish with Angie.

Toodle-loo!

  1. Aaaaah! You made me laugh pretty hard! I always say the same thing. I can’t believe how people act no matter what when you’re out thrifting.

    I was in an Arc the other day and a woman was shooting me the stink-eye because I was in her aisle! I just kept on poking around and looking to my heart’s content. I take no prisoners! Hehehe!
