Thrifted Treasure: estate sale, thrift store, and the vintage bazaar

I had a wonderful weekend of thrift fun. I went to a couple of estate sales looking for cheap step stools. Exciting right? Not really but look what I left with? I thought these were a bargain at $20 each. 
Already framed and they match perfectly with the rest of our artwork.

I made a quick trip to Unique's 50% off sale. I picked up lots but left with little. I edited a lot to get the checkout with 2 items. My plan is to remove 2 things from my closet. I'm trying to "do better". Keep  the purging constant.

My super petite thrift haul included a leather and snakeskin shoulder / clutch bag ($3.50)

and brand new pink Unlisted flats ($3).


I also went to The Vintage Bazaar with a couple of members of the Thriftanista Social Club. 
SN: You don't have to be local to join!

I bought nothing. I really did just browse. Oh wait, I stuffed my face with wild boar tacos and mini donuts. I left the house without eating and therefore scarfed my food down in a matter of minutes. No time for taking pictures. 

My friends found some gems though.

Do you like the treasure?
What did you find this weekend?
PS: I'm trying to understand how linky works so I can actually SEE what everyone found. Stay tuned and get ready to link up!

You have the best style. I love seeing what you find! That purse is awesome, I'm like you in that I go crazy for anything animal print. Anything. Ha. I can relate this week in that I felt like I was walking about the thrift stores with a mountain in my cart but I ended up buying only one or two things! It made me feel very posh and picky :)

I have DIY plans for this one! Are you a thrifter, my local stores usually have quite a few on hand.

Hands down you are the queen of thrift! I had the chance to go over the weekend but did not come home with a stash quite like that! I love what you found, especially the retro and vintage items. Cute idea for the keys...I saw tons of those and thought of using them as escort cards for the wedding. I should have picked those up!

Enjoy your weekend:)
