Thrift Report: Back in the Groove

Hello friends! I've been on a blog hiatus recently due to a huge writing project for work, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. Last week was spring break on the campus where I work. Granted, as a staff member I don't actually get to observe the break, but at least it was quiet and peaceful in my office and I managed to get lots done!

On Friday, I rebelliously took the day off and hung out with my mom. We did some shopping and thrifting and lunching and all kinds of fun stuff, and I actually bought more inventory for the shop than I have in a long time. Here are some recent fave finds:

I happened to walk into a thrift just as a huge, mint condition collection of 1980s era Fiestaware was being unloaded. I snapped up the pieces above for the shop, as well as three turquoise dinner plates for my own personal collection. I use my mom's old 80s Fiestaware for my everyday dishes, but I've been short on dinner plates recently. Score!

I adore this cute little collection of vintage cabinet vases:

I've had two of them for a while, and just recently picked up the third. They're cute would they be as bud vases on a spring table?

And then there was this:

You guys know I have a vintage magazine rack problem. This is proof. that curlicue gold one makes me swoon.

And that's all I've had time to photograph, folks. Even though it's 20 degrees today, I can see my tulips popping up through the ground, so I know spring is on its way. And I always catch thrifting fever in spring, so that's something to look foward to!

Wishing everyone a wonderful and productive week!
