end of quarter celebratory goodwill trip!

phew! i am officially done with my winter quarter!! feels so good to be done, it seems like that 3 months dragged on and on (mostly due to the horribly gloomy weather). what better way to celebrate than a little goodwill extravaganza with my girls!?! 

and, lucky you...i'm going to share pictures of all my goodies! are you as excited as i am?! i hope so -- because i made out like a bandit this time =) let's jump right in shall we?

i found an old recipe converter, and vintage general electric wall clock (which is in much need of some t.l.c.) the turquoise, polka dotted back drop is actually a roll of vintage vinyl wall paper. here are some close ups:

don't you just love the charm and texture of the clock!? moving along...
here are my other vintage finds. two cute 70's mugs - i'm a sucker for mushrooms!! i also found a vintage sewing box, and a roll of beautiful vintage, scarlet-red, velvet ribbon with lace edges (the picture above does it no justice, trust me!). i cannot wait to stash my sewing tools and supplies in this box, it is perfect!

as i mentioned in the last post, i always stop by the fabric section while thrifting. it pays off every time. this trip i found 2 vintage fabrics, the coral is polyester, and the teal is cotton. i couldn't pass them up...and there are several yards of each. ahh, the possibilities!

below are some newer items i found in the clothing and accessories areas:

j crew navy striped cardigan, green dress, brown leather belt, the cloth belt is vintage (had to sneak that one in there!), and a cute pair of sunnies that are mossimo brand (usually found at target)

yellow and brown graphic printed dress

i know it's a good trip when i find an owl:

and last, but not least...this strange, old, coral dress that i have big plans for (think project REstyle). but i won't spoil the secret by telling you my'll have to wait and see what is in store for this old dress =)

i wish i had my camera out to take a picture of my friends' faces when i stuck this one in the shopping cart! trust me, this dress has hidden potential...

the price tag for all of this stuff........under $70!! what a deal! 

what do you think?? my next series of posts will review my first year at the art institute of seattle. see what i've created this past year!
