As far as thrift hauls go, this is one of my favorites. I checked out 2 neighboring estate sales and found some great treasure. When I shop, I buy what I like and think about whether it fits me or my life later. Turns out the majority of this haul was meant for other Thriftanistas and are now for sale in The Thriftanista Closet.
Vintage 80s Sunglasses
Hi, my name is Troy and I'm addicted to sunglasses. There was a time when I could not find a pair to fit my face correctly and worked with my budget. Now I spot sunglasses every time I thrift and can't resist just one (or more) pairs.
These 2 are brand new with the tags still on them. I cracked the frame on the bottom pair so I'm going to keep those for myself. Nothing a little gorilla glue can't fix!
80s Bomber Jacket
It's part bomber. Part Michael Jackson Thriller. I couldn't resist the shoulders!
80's Patchwork Leather Purse
The multicolor purse caught my eye first for obvious reasons. All the colors! I thought it would make a great camera bag but I think the strap is too thin to carry the weight of the camera without eventually tearing it up.
The beige and tan one has a nice fat strap but not enough room for the camera. Womp. Womp.
Whiting & Davis Mesh Coin Purse
Adorable little, dainty coin purse. All of my coins would tear this bag up. It's more of a collector's item or a cute o.b. carrier?
Black Suede Ferragamo Pumps
The last pair of Ferragamo pumps I bought sold well on eBay so I bought these! I didn't really understand how special these shoes are until I tried these on. They feel great and they're timeless. The signature buckle Ferragamo pumps aren't really my style.
Vintage Rhinestone Costume Jewelry
I sense a collection forming for me. The big shiny rhinestones earrings are perfect for a bit of sparkle everyday. They can be seen when I wear my hair down which is most of the time.
The only items I didn't take a picture of is a London Fog anorak and a Mr. Mort vintage brocade dress from the 50s / 60s. They are both pretty dirty and in need of stain treatments. I'll show them to you later when they're all cleaned up.
