Thursday Thrifting

The mister and I have caught the thrifting bug big time--so much so that I do believe a weekly thrifting post is in order, et voilà: Thursday Thrifting!

Here are some of our sweet finds over the past few weeks...

vintage metal globe, sans base

the perfect mid-century dining table! (chairs thrifted too, in desperate need of reupholstering)

sweet vintage flat cards and really cool *empty* notebook

5 more vintage American Tourister suitcases, doubling my collection!

a lovely vintage enameled pitcher

I almost peed my pants when I saw these babies!!

the pièce de résistance: a Bernina 830!

...and I haven't even shown you any of the bikes Skye picked up, including a pretty little pair of vintage Raleigh Sports. What treasures will we find next?

p.s. Another Giveaway Day has been announced and I'll be participating again! Hmmm, what shall I give away this time...?


  1. NO WAY. An 830??! At a thrift shop?! Between that and the rest of your finds, I believe you live in a land of enchanted secondhand stores!

  2. PS-I have an old Bernina 801 Sport, the slightly tinier cousin of the old 830. It's a dream machine... give it lots of love!
