While I was visiting in Canada the last couple of weeks, I made a few trips to the local thrift store with my mom and sisters (and snuck in one more while Lola was being fussy during the movie at the theatre next door :)).
After chatting on Instagram (I’m @sewmuchado) with a couple of WA friends, we all agreed that the thrifting is definitely lacking in our beautiful state. It’s pretty depressing for someone who loves to buy others’ junk.
My favorite purchase by far was this Brownie camera. I haven’t done much research to learn about it yet, but I do know that they were made between 1946 and 1952.
When I saw it sitting on the shelf, I instantly snatched it up. I was pretty excited about the $15 price tag too. Too cute to pass up. If I ever get a shelf hung in my sewing room, the Brownie will have a perfect home.
I also found a bunch of sewing notions. It was half price day, so they were all super great deals.
The packaging on the vintage bias tape had me at hello.
I was also excited to find some vintage tupperware. It’s so hard to find in WA, meaning I’ve never found ANY. I can’t wait to use the little one for my honey just like we did growing up (my mom’s honey is still kept in her little container). I’m sure it reminds many of you of your childhoods too!
