Found - Thrifted

...just thought I'd take a break from all my bedroom post and share with you guys some of the things I have picked up while thrifting lately...

I got this leather/suede (Sonia Rykeil?) bag...for just $5.99 
The top flap was missing the knob which keeps the flap closed...I guess that's why they marked it down so low...go figure...I was going to try and have it fixed until I saw this bag on one of my favorite blogs...

...and that gave me the idea to just go ahead and remove the flap...DUH!





 Done and done...can you believe an all leather designer bag...practically new...for $5.99?

...and then there was this beauty...not sure what's going on with me...but, I'm attracted to bags lately...maybe because Mini is in the "I need to change my bag everyday phase"...

 ...doesn't this look like the quilted Gucci/Chanel bag...I was all ready to do my happy dance in the thrift store...but, it's not...it's a knock off...a beautiful leather knock off...for just $4.99.  Had to have it...

to be rocked like this...VIA



...picked this up for just $3.00...LOVE.  Super soft, tie dyed, with crochet, knit detail... 


to be rocked like this...inspiration


...and last but not least...sigh.
 I found this GE am/fm radio for $3.99...sigh.
 forgive me, but I was so excited to put this on my kitchen shelf...sure, it only plays radio...but, the sound is so amazing...Mini turned up her nose when she first saw it...then I plugged it in and tuned into her favorite station...and she came running into the kitchen...yeah.

I have always admired this Tivoli radio in Target.  I could never justify paying over $200.00 for a radio...really?  But, I would have gladly accepted it as a gift...smile.

no need...my kitchen shelves are finally coming together...and the radio is a perfect addition.  I love listening to NPR while cooking or blogging...
 ...my kitchen shelf inspiration.
