I'm calling this fellow Casey Jones. I think he was an over-the-crib organiser (or perhaps shoes) in another life, but I put him to better use.
Scarves, gloves, and hankies all have a new, neater home. I already have a psychotic looking bear on my wall, it isn't like this is going to clash with the décor.
Those pockets hold a surprising amount of stuff.
While I was at the Hand-Me-Ups store, I found another bag similar to the tapestry one I bought there last month.
For years I stayed clear of Americana thinking it was for old ladies and reactionaries. Well, I qualify as an old lady anyway. That bag is huge.
The beaded bag started out at twenty dollars at my local Thrift World. It didn't sell (obviously) so last weekend I got it for four dollars. I still think I over-paid, but sometimes I do that.
This bag feels older to me (nice interior, metal zipper, well-constructed handles) though it could be from the 80's or later. I bought it for the fringe because I adore fringed items, and don't currently have any. Problem solved.
Yeah, that's a shitty photo, but you get the idea.
Let's pause for a David Lynch inspired photo.
OK, now that I got that out of my system, look what else I found
...and they're cat-eye shaped. Perfect for my two sets of specs! How lucky was that?
Finally, a mystery. I know Dunhams boots are a heritage Canadian brand that started in the US in Vermont. These boots have a Vermont label, but I'm not able to get much information to date them by. They are pristine, never worn, and the leather hasn't a single crack in it. Unfortunately, they're too small for my feet, but I couldn't leave them for $3.99 I do wish I knew a bit more about them.
Any Dunhams experts out there want to weigh in with additional information? The sizing on the label is pretty cryptic as well.
The tops fold down, and snap on both sides of the boot. A pretty nifty feature.
So that was my haul last weekend. Did you find anything good in the thrifts?
