Some Are Luckier Than Others

When you’re the thrifting kind, you’re always receptive to the perfect items calling out to you, tempting you with their cuteness, awesomeness, and general must-take-me-homeness. It doesn’t always happen, but it’s these thoughts that bring you back to thrift stores again and again hoping for that lucky find. Thrifting luck is usually defined by finding a matching mug for your vintage pyrex set, or snatching up the retro fabric before someone else sees it. Well, that’s my definition anyway.

My friends, luck was redefined yesterday and I’m trying really hard not to be jealous. My friend bought a vintage purse over the weekend and spent a few minutes cleaning it out yesterday at home. What was inside? Three hundred dollars inside a very old envelope.

Remind me not to go thrifting without her.

    Wow! I took my little niece with me once and she found me a mint condition Enid Collins purse. It has jeweled owls on it. Precious!
