Thrifty Finds: @starsappearing

Hello :)
This week's thrifty pictures are courtesy of 
my Instagram feed, @starsappearing.
I found, to my surprise, that people were using
Instagram as a space (so to speak) to sell their vintage.
So I thought, why don't I give it a try?
Not much to lose.
I've sold a few things now,
and it's really fun finding people who also love vintage
to share vintage eye candy with :)

So, these photos are from my shop Instagram feed:

 This adorable vintage dress was my first sale,
and I'm glad because I loved it sooo much!
I knew it'd be too small for my daughter, but
the material was so pretty. I couldn't leave it behind!

I also love this oversized Anne of Green Gables book.
It's illustrated inside with both color and black-and-white pictures...
I always loved this story, so maybe I'll end up keeping it.
The cover is just so cute.



More books--very 70's, too.


 


Something about this doll won me over.
I think it was those cheeks.


This cute little mug made me think of my son Liam,
who is 3 himself right now :)



A kitschy planter.


I loved the bright colors of these vintage towels.



Equally bright is this flat sheet.
It looks faded because of the Instagram filter I used,
but it is so pretty in person.
This also sold.



I'm on a kick with all these bright colors I guess!
This chalk ware plate is so 70's...
sold.


This set of cups and saucers is one of those things that 
I wouldn't mind never selling...I was really drawn to the pattern.
Maybe I'll keep these too...




These books are tiny and very sweet.
Made in 1969, and filled with the cutest illustrations and little poems.




I have other items on my feed but these are the newest!
I went thrifting today, and bought a few fun things...
but it's really, really rainy here right now, and super windy!
I guess that stuff will have to wait until these storms pass!

What a sweet copy of Anne of Green Gables, I am originally from Prince Edward Island, which is the setting for the Anne books.

Great finds! I had no idea that people sell on Instagram...might have to check it out. I love the vintage towels--so hard to find them in good condition!

I had no idea people were buying and selling on Instagram! The litte dress is so cute and I love the pattern on the cups and saucers.

I had no idea people were selling there, too....
Of course, I'm probably the only person in this community who doesn't want an iPhone.....but this might change my mind....haha!

Congrats on the sales!!
