Black Friday Vintage Haul

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and got to enjoy some quality time off.  I was looking forward to getting up at the crack of dawn to hit the Black Friday sales with my sister, but she ended up getting sick and having to stay home.  I ended up staying in for the first time in many years because it's just not as fun without my partner in crime.  I shopped a few online sales over the weekend (I did some damage with Anthropologie's 25% off clearance going on through tonight, and Kate Spade's surprise 75% off sale, going on through Monday).  I also hit a few of my vintage haunts and scored some fantastic deals.

Here are some of the highlights:

Huge vintage tray.  Love these colors!  Already listed in the shop.

New vintage towels, also listed. 

Pretty Pyrex for my kitchen.

Navy blue and white striped wallpaper.  

I'm not sure if the wallpaper is vintage, but I was happy to find these. I'm always on the lookout for vintage wallpaper, but finding good patterns is a rarity.  I'm thinking these may be perfect for my little boy's room.  I'm hoping to share a tour of his room so far, so be on the lookout for that.  

I'm also hoping to share other room tours for my home, which feature vintage and handmade style.  Decorating is an ever evolving process, and I feel like I am just at the beginning in my home, but I would love to share what I've done so far and get your ideas for what to do next.  

Besides the room tours, I'm planning some before and after makeover shares of second-hand finds.  Unfortunately, I seemed to have lost of a lot of my "before" pictures of various projects I've been working on, but now that I have a place to share them (through this blog), I will take better care to take and save photos along the way going forward. 

I'm also thinking that this would be a good place to share reviews of books, tv shows and other resources on decorating and vintage style.  

I would love to hear your opinions on anything you would like to see here, so please do share! 

Well, thanks for stopping by!

  2. you got some very prety pyrex i've just started to collect myself enjoy them

  3. I love those towels. Are they old? I think that's Swedish embroidery. I just found some pattern books for it. Anyway, it's gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

    1. They are old - I'm not sure how old though. Thanks for the heads up on the embroidery! I wasn't sure what kind of stitching that was - good to know!

  4. I stayed in for Black Friday too. My sister was out of town and it just wouldn't have been the same without her! Love the wallpaper & Pyrex. The Snowflake pattern is perfect for the holidays.


  5. That tray is fabulous! I bet it will sell quickly!

  6. I love the tray and the towels! Your online shopping sounds fun! I hope your partner in crime feels better soon. :)
