Still no sun, but I'm forging ahead with bad lighting and a wee bit of flash anyway.
For the Mama. Love, love, love the handknit 'pocorn' seriously old-school sweater. Lemon. Yum. And then the brown ribbed sweater I adore as well, especially the brand name "Glamour Knits". Love it. And, oh, those long johns! I *know* had a pair just like these as a kid that were actually a hand me down from my mom. I don't know what will become of this--clothes for A? hope for me to fit into them someday? Hmmn..... Had to have them.
Seriously bad lighting. But can you see them? Vintage girls sized nightshirts. I saw these three together and the tears started flowing right there in the thrift shop (oh yes, thrifting can be a highly emotional experience for someone as sentimental as I!)...My Meme always had a drawer full of these and whenever we would visit we would wear these all day. All day. And I loved them. So many memories.
And last, some vintage treats for the babe. Besides the red shirt on the left (love), the others were made to be dolls clothes, I believe, quite some time ago based on the prints. I think I might be able to squeeze her sweet arms into some of them as shirts this summer, then off to the dolls clothes bag they go.
It's so much fun to share thrifting finds with someone who appreciates it, isn't it? Steve, who's such a dear about it, really, is quite 'trained' in saying the right things about the treasures I bring home--"wow", "oh, what a find!', "really? only a dollar?" and other false statements to please me. It's very kind of him, of course, but I do think the past year of me sharing some of it here on the blog has taken some pressure off him! So I'll thank you--from him--for the oohs and aahs.
Oh, almost forgot! The grand total. For part one, and today's combined: $14. Oh, the joy.
