This has been my worst summer for junk in nearly 8 years I think. Usually I am so busy acquiring new junk that it is piling up on the kitchen counter waiting to be cleaned and sorted and put away. Not this year. If I didn't know better I would just swear I had bought all the good junk that St Louis has to offer already! LOL
There was an urban thrift event downtown today, some sort of deal between Goodwill and the local brewery. We sat down yesterday and made a plan to go down there, which included riding the train to the city. And then I woke up with the worst allergy problem ever. One eye swelling shut, lips rashy and burning, and a rash growing all over me.
But Jack was on and on and on about how we were supposed to ride the train, so I took a metric ton of benadryl and off we went. I swear I must be dreaming, because there was actually stuff to buy! Like new curtains for the living room. They remind me of Liz for some reason.
More old drinking glasses. We use them everyday, and there is a fair amount of breakage around here, so I always buy them when I see them. There are actually 7 in this set, but I can hardly see to take pictures. Oy.
This looks like a teapot, but there is some kind of writing on the inside that I can't remember at the moment but makes me think it was for coffee. Missing the lid, but I can see it filled with flowers.
Potholder bloomers made from a feedsack. Cute as can be, but might end up scavenged for the fabric.
Some more ornaments. I actually saw more this morning, but they looked way too fragile to make it home on the bumpy train with everything else I had to carry.
Totally awesome candelabra lamp. She had a pair, but I didn't have enough cash. I have her phone number just in case the other one doesn't get sold. (Crossing fingers, toes, ears, etc.)
I was *this* close to buying mugs like these from someones etsy shop. I swear I admired them for days. They popped up in the thrift this week and I nearly jumped up and down. Love the patchworky goodness. Very Cath Kidston, no?
The most fantastic find is outside airing out and I will show it to you tomorrow.
Assuming I can still open my eyes then.
Off to take more benadryl and lie down for a spell. I hope you are all having a fantastic junk filled weekend!
