Novelty Print Statement Skirt Vintage novelty print statement skirts are big business and can sell for large amounts of money depending on the print and the year of the skirt. I sold this one within five minutes of listing it in my Etsy shop…   A 1950s…

Temptation And Thrifting To say that I am tempted every time I thrift to keep items for myself is an understatement. It is a constant battle to ensure that pieces move into my store and not my closet. I am slowly learning to take control of my urges but…

Dressing Sexy Over 50 Yes! It can be done. Forget about all that age appropriate BS. Wear whatever makes you happy and feel good about yourself. If not now, when? Feeling sexy is a state of mind and has nothing to do with age or size. When I feel…

Oh my gosh! I remember the Mandrell sisters! Ha ha!

Isn't it wonderful finding old treasures like that? They really take us back in time.

Now of course no one writes out their recipes anymore.

I have quite a few large photo albums where I've saved many family recipes but I find I use them less and less. Instead I just go to my Pinterest Board and find the recipes I'm looking for there. It is sad really. I think I need to make my Grandma's shortbread for Christmas. Carrying on traditions creates continuity in our lives and keeps memories alive.

That was hilarious!

I'm a bit of a neat freak. Looking at your original wardrobe was a bit of a nightmare for me. I'd be at a total loss if I had to get dressed from that.

Both my husband and I are a bit OCD when it comes to organization in our spaces.

This gave me a good laugh this morning. I'm all over the chocolate part!

I love it when people collect items that have cherished memories attached. It's like living in a scrapbook.

Oooh those appliqués are fun! Too much hand stitching for me. I'd go nuts. I prefer the iron on ones.

I often find things that are obviously donated by the same person and I wonder what happened to that person.

Another interesting thing to study would be the difference in donations depending on the store location.

I need you at my place to figure out how to fix my bobbin spooler. I HATE doing that by hand since it broke on my machine.

I don't often talk to people when I'm thrifting because I'm so "in the zone" but I agree there are lots of stories there to be told and lots of very unique people.

I always wondered if there is a difference in the quality of thread. I've collected some over the years as well. I need to figure out a better system for storing them though since most of them have unravelled in the large jar I'm holding them in.
