Wow. Today was an amazing day.
I've been in the market for a loose fitting top. Wait, let's be real - I'm constantly in the market for a loose fitting top! So yes, I did find one, but this time it was more special than usual because it was my very first thrifted item. It was definitely one of those love-at-first-sight moments.
Wow. Have I been missing out. That's it above. It this sort of brownish weird color. I love it.
I also got this pretty amazing oversized sweater. If this random northern california weather keeps up, I'm sure it will be making its debut soon - late June or not!
The boyf (!?) and I went over to my mom's new house to help her and my dad unload items that had been in our storage unit into her garage. Actually, I watched from inside while my dad and the boyf did the lifting.
I injured my bicep bouldering a few month ago, so it's not like I would have been any sort of help. By the way, bouldering is like rock climbing, but without the ropes. It's really not as dangerous as it sounds. You're a lot lower to the ground, so you don't fall from nearly as high. I think it takes way more technical skill than rock climbing, or top roping as most climbers call it. Although, if you talk to a top roper, they'd probably proceed to tell you why they are superior to boulderers.
Back to why this was one of the most amazing days ever.
So, besides the fact that I made my first thrifting purchase (<3), I also bought this great mid century piece from a garage sale!
Here it is. Only $25! Why would anyone want to give this away??
By the way, I'm a huge fan of mid century furniture. I love the clean, simple lines and the spindle legs that are the trademark of mid century pieces.
Apparently they own an antique store a few minutes away from my apartment. The lady's husband said they just had too much junk around and they needed to unload stuff.
To the lady's credit, she did playfully hit the husband as soon as he uttered the word "junk".
I also got this cool little antique tea pot(?).
