Hello! I always LOVE seeing what my fellow thrifters 
have been up to...I could (sadly) never tire
of seeing the cool things other people have picked up.
And it's fun to know sometimes what someone paid for it.
That's the thrill of the hunt, right? The BARGAINS!

So, this little post will be come in the form of The Vintage Receipt, 
where I share what I paid from a particular haul.

This all came from my absolute favorite thrift store in the area,
called Pick of the Litter. Not only are their prices always awesome, 
but the proceeds go to helping the local humane society.

Cheap-yo prices? Charitable? I couldn't be more smitten.

It's not the fanciest of places--no clean, plastic, name-emblazoned shopping bags
here, my friends. This is recycled-Thriftway-bags-with-iffy-handles territory.
But who cares! Let's see whats inside, shall we?

Some highlights:

If my kids had their own bathroom, this would so be going in it...

Vintage cards

Not super-interesting stuff, but integral as part of the collective haul...
a wooden candleholder, kitch utensils, and a rack to be spray-painted
and hold magazines...

Oh bowl, how I adore thee. If only I had one for every member of my brood.
Wouldn't breakfast be even more fun then.

A teeny souvenir plate to send to Honeybee...
(hope you like!)

a vintage handmade baby outfit!
Oh mushyness. I love love love vintage kids stuff!

The whale looks a little mad, but I'll take it.

And my favorite find from that trip:
an early 1940's restaurant menu.

The Riviera--Distinctively Continental. 

The type is so cool.

The damage:

Cheap, yo.

Linking up to Harper's Happenings.

This is so great! Love the idea of spray painting an old dish rack for a magazine rack. The cards are adorable and so is the cute little jumper :-)

Oh my, that vintage little romper is to-die-for. I agree, the whale looks a little funky, but I would never let that stop me. It's so cute! Nice finds.
