I meant to post this well over two months ago, but things tend to happen, like Christmas. Oh well.
Behold! The contents of my bag. Looks pretty good right?
Here are few of my favorite items.
On the top left is a tarnished silver tray of some sort, I’m sure it will look great cleaned up.
The top right is a small glass box, possibly for jewelry or candy. The other three items are another little box and a couple of tiny vases. The blue one looks like a smaller version of one I got years ago at a yard sale.
It’s hard to go to a thrift store and not find decent dishware. I found two different sets of plates, plain white and a set with simple blue flowers.
I also found a bowl. I like bowls like this. Good size, simple and cute design, easy to wash, and microwave safe.
And a I got this cute mug, perfect for my tea. I prefer drinking from a mug instead of a tea cup since they hold more and are less fragile but still pretty. At least the mugs I use are pretty.
Now for clothes. I thought these two blouses would be perfect to go with all my the dresses and skirts I make. The one on the right has embroidered eyelets all over it and the one on the left is covered with pretty lace and other details.
I know it’s wintery and cold out, but you have to ignore the season sometimes to get a good deal on clothes. Especially when it comes to these two tanks tops.
The black one will be great and super comfy for next summer but the blue is actually good now. It has pretty lace and ruffles and it looks great worn over long sleeve tops.
Long sleeved such as these knits. The white sweater on the left I actually have already worn with that blue top. They are perfect together.
The pink cardigan I am not sure about though. It is cute and I love cable knit sweaters, but it’s made with rabbit hair. Not sure how I feel about that.
So many cute tops and sweaters, just need a couple of cute skirts to go with them. Both of them are black and ruffly, though the one on the left is super ruffly.
Here are some more casual looking clothes. Just a few t-shirts, several pairs of shorts because I needed more, and a few tanks tops including some pink ones. It’s a good idea to stock up on things like this at bag sales since they take very little space in the bag and you always seem to need more.
Now the last few pieces. On the left is a cute night gown covered with bunnies and other little animals, also a pair of pink Mickey Mouse pajama pants. Yay! Cute comfy sleepwear.
On the right is a Hello Kitty make up bag and a Sanrio pocket planner. I actually didn’t know it was a planner when I found it. I just thought it was cute and could slip easily in the side of my bag.
On the top right is a lunch bag. That’s right, it’s a lunch bag though it would make a cute purse. It has polka dots and has a cupcake shaped pocket on the side. The main reason I got it was to shove other stuff in it. I thought that if I rolled up t-shirts and stuff really tightly and crammed them in it, then the lunch bag could help keep them squashed down and take up less space in my bag. Makes sense right?
Some to tally it up:
- 4 pairs of shorts
- 3 t-shirts
- 2 blouses
- 3 tank tops
- 2 dressy tank tops
- 2 sweaters
- 1 pair pajama pants
- 1 night gown
- 1 mug
- 1 bowl
- 2 jewelry boxes
- 2 small vases
- 1 platter
- 2 cute bags
- 6 plates
- 7 knives
- 1 cute day planner
- 1 small blanket
- 1 sheet
- 1 framed art print
44 items total, valued at over $120 at thrift store prices, and again it only cost me $20. Pretty good haul.
