We "find stuff" all the time, whether it be cool vintage finds from a yard sale, estate sale or thrift shop. Whether it be an amazing blog post, website or Etsy shop. I know I find really great things all the time and I always want to share them, or mean to share them, but I forget! So I have decided to make a new blog series of my favorite finds, kind of like Oprah's My Favorite Things, but a little different, considering we don't probably have the same audience or resources. I was inspired to start actually doing this when I stopped by a yard sale this weekend and found all these great items, and guess what I paid? 7 bucks! For ALL of it. I love that! Vintage finds that make me feel like I am treasure hunting are definitely some of my favorite things. What's your favorite things to find?
A couple vintage toys my twin boys picked out
Vintage Nordic Ware USA Pan
An old copy of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and a few other books, all at a quarter each!
An old Tin which is really sweet but inside was a special prize....
Old recipes from the Newspaper some were from the 50's and 60's
And some were handwritten in, I don't know, Dutch maybe? How fun is that?!
Another old book, this is a Nancy Drew Mystery. I don't know if I will actually ever get around to reading this as my reading list is very long, but I just couldn't pass it up, the inside picture is really cool too.
I got this picture in a pretty bad frame, for a dollar! I was adding up my goods and I turned back to look for my wandering twins and I spotted this...which my son said is maybe a "boat spotter?" I thought it was a sort of blueprint. But my 13 year is one of those people that know about everything and told me that boat/ships would have photos (drawings) of other boats so they could identify them.
Now I just need to figure out where I am going to put all this stuff!!!
