Some of the thrifted treasures headed for the booth tomorrow

Even with the spare room is so nicely organized, I am still not ready to add more inventory to my enormous stockpile, so I'm still shopping my garage (since that space is decidedly not organized, it's good to get bits out of there).  Here are a few of the treasures I pulled out to take to the booth tomorrow:


Pair of men's wool Kangols

Totally 80s straw cowgirl hat with suede, feathers, fur, beads and one
of those silvery thingies.


Lovely gold metallic open-toed mules marked Famous Barr Co on one
shoe and "Leisure Loungers" on the other.
I love that these were once considered loungewear!


'60s Arrow Decton "Perma-Iron" poly/
cotton short-sleeved shirt.

JC Penney poly/cotton pale green short-
sleeved shirt with dark stitching.

Large-collar funky-print shirt.
No label.  So soft!
Large-collar green/white poly/cotton
shirt labelled Famous Barr Supre-Vino

Pink poly/rayon/flax cap-sleeved dress,
non-metal zipper, California Girl label.

Ecru lace over slightly darker color dress,
satiny lining, metal zipper, no label.
Black/silver lamé vavoom dress.  Small tag inside
says size 13, no other label.  Metal zipper.
Remember - all clothing and accessories are still 50% off through the month of August, even these new arrivals, so if you're local, get thee to Kenrick Antique Mall booth 78 tomorrow afternoon and all these new treasures can be yours!


Little Golden Heidi - 1954 and The Three Bears - 1948
Actually, these will not go into the booth.  I snapped them up without a thought at the Goodwill Pound Store, where together they cost less than $0.39, since they don't weigh a pound, but upon inspection, too many of the pages have been scribbled.  I think I'm looking at a crafty project with the remaining good bits.  I'm open to any suggestions!

The Story Road - 1952 edition reading book

A well-used Wizard of Oz cookbook, surprisingly from 1981

Random children's book Fur & Feathers - 1965

LeeWards Illustrated Library of Arts and Crafts -
1974.  Check out that cover art - Fabulous!

 Peeks at some of the illustrations in a few of these (click if you want to see them bigger):

  1. Hiya Kim,
    Great finds! The silver and pink dresses are really cute! I think the pages could be used for decoupaged storage boxes for a child, decorate something for a baby shower, or maybe to make a garland! That's all I can think of off hand. lol
    Thanks for coming back and joining the Frugal Treasures party.

  2. Thanks Barbe! And thanks for the suggestions, I never thought of something like a garland - so cute!

  3. oohh that silver dress is awesome! adorbs!

    1. Thanks! I'm hoping it will entice folks to check out all the lovely vintage clothing I've got stocked up in the booth.
