Style: Estate sale finds

Two weeks ago it happened.  On my way to the recycling center I saw it.  Visions of vintage ran through my head, antiques and those sweet deals you can no longer find in a department store.  It was time for an adventure, it was calling my name.  Hues of cobalt, fuscia, and violet whriling around. There they were waiting just for me, a box of lace, silk, and satin ready to be added to my wardrobe rotation.  This is thrifting. 

To most people an estate sale is just a pile of junk, but to me it is where some of my most prize possessions come from.  This was my experience a few weeks ago when I had a spur of the moment thifting escapade.  Among NaNa frames, Christmas figurines, and dusty encyclopedias I found three trendy bags and several gorgeous scarves for the summer.  Scarves never go out of style so they were definitely a steal at $.50 each and each hand bag was a dollar.  I also picked a vintage suede suitcase but I haven't had a chance to take a picture of it yet.
