Thrift Haul at Vintage Garage Chicago

After my Sears shopping trip, I went to Vintage Garage Chicago. I wasn't expecting to have another vintage thrift haul like the last one. Vintage from a thrift store is a lot cheaper than vintage from a market expressly for vintage shoppers. I knew the prices would be higher so I wasn't planning on coming home with anything. There was so much great stuff that I just couldn't leave empty handed.

I found lucite and plastic bangles from 14th Street Vintage. I didn't really find these. I know the owner. She's a long time member of the Thriftanista Social Club and she always finds good stuff! Unbeknownst to me, I won a contest she had on her Facebook page for a free bangle. So I bought four and got one free!

I bought a vintage necklace from Pure Vintage. I love black and gold together. It's a Trifari necklace and their costume jewelry was worn my Mamie Eisenhower in the 50s! I don't think this one is that old. It has a 70s vibe to me.

I also purchased a vintage rhinestone bracelet at the Pure Vintage stall. Wow! Ain't it fancy?

Most likely I'll be headed to the playground in my ornate bracelet. I absolutely had to have it though. It's sparkly and I just adore the curvy, pleated fan thingy. It's over the top and I love it!

My last purchase is the yellow leather clutch which you should already be familiar with as I'm giving it away! It's my favorite find from Vintage Garage. I knew it was the perfect giveaway. I would rock it and I know it can suit a variety of taste. I didn't keep it because it will just sit around and collect dust with the rest of the thrift purses collection.

It reminds me of an Anne Klein clutch I sold on Etsy. Next time I get my hands on a yellow leather purse, I will be keeping it for myself!

I saw a table full of animal pendant necklaces and my eyes got real big! I want a lion so bad but I resisted buying. I'll hold off. It will be much for fun to find a cheaper one at a thrift store.

I spent $54 for everything. That's a lot of money! What can I say, I caught the fever.

How about you. Are you a vintage shopper or a thrift store shopper?

Great haul! I love that black and gold necklace... and it looks like a couple of those bangles are Bakelite. Cool!
