Weekend Treasure Hunt

It's been awhile since I've had a good treasure picking day.
This weekend I visited a local thrift store warehouse where items are purchased by the pound.

My weekend treasure hunt 

 The cream end/side table was $1.00!

 fabric to re-purpose

 Christmas goodies

 Wonderful books.
I' m thinking those vintage sparkly silver shoes are crying out for a Christmas redo!

 Two vintage smaller suitcases: Luce & Samsonite.  Each suitcase is full
of ephemera and other smaller treasures. 
A vintage album carrying case.
Adorable infant Santa sleeper... maybe I'll use it on my Christmas tree.

 French Women, sheet music, Christmas wreath (needs some help), vintage vase,
snowflake buttons, vintage pins, natural Christmas garland, Ooh La la french puzzle pieces & more.

Three hand-stitched double/queen quilts!

After our treasure hunt, Tara & I meet for lunch at California Pizza on the Country Club Plaza.  

What a great day!


  1. I love those ornies and the luggage...swoon
    happy turkey day Tami

  2. I used to have an record case just like that, to hold my LPs... ("back when")

  3. Oh, what a score! That little side table will fit right into your decor! I especially love the spines of those books under the sparkly shoes, and the quilts! I would love to peek inside the suitcases to see what ephemera you found! I love days like that!!
