We have an average thrift shop here in my town, a good one in the city nearby, but in a town a few kilometres further... Well let's call it a thrift hall.
Especially the shoe and clothing department was to die for.
Okay I didn't buy clothes this time but I will be back!
I did buy some shoes....
(You might have caught up on my haul already when you follow me in Instagram)
Not very summer-y, but pretty they are!
Don't you think? Ok the heels are a bit too high to give them that genuine '30s look, but will do.
I had only been in the store for 1 minute and then these beauties caught my eye.
And they fit to a T!
You haven't even heard the price...
€2. Yup, I definitely paid only 2 euros for these in-perfect-state babes.
(I later got in an argument with the cashier, because apparently the price tag had fallen off, and she couldn't believe me they were €2 as I said. I don't blame her for I couldn't believe it either!
Later on I could prove it so I didn't pay too much.)
Pretty scarf! When I saw a bunch of pretty scarves in Utrecht priced €4 each, I was tempted to buy at least one but told myself that there are definitely cheaper ones out there - just as gorgeous!
And well, it was worth it because for this beauty, I only had to pay €1.
Love the colours! Autumn shades are the best in my opinion, and match nicely with my dark features.
Super cheap buttons are always a great win! I now have a serious button collection and I cherish it.
These are obviously just simple ones, great for a cardigan with, for example, ingenious stitch work.
I know not everyone is with me but I love those moss green colours! Much better than bright neons.
Half a vanity set. Not genuine 1920's, not at all...
But not less pretty in my eyes! A little less delicate than those silver things, a bit more character maybe, because of the wood.
They're not perfectly clean or like new but my dressing table loves them already.
And the prices get crazier and crazier: I payed €1,25 for both..?!
I realised that some of these purchases have one thing in common:
they're a bit focused on autumn or even winter!
The shoes of course, and the scarf would perfectly go with my 1940's winter coat.
I so so much look forward to the colder seasons!
Not only because of the temperature, but the colours, the food and everything.
Anyway August has just started to I better try to pull myself through these sweaty months.
