I led a thifting tour during Alt Summit with a fabulous group of girls and wanted to share with you my favorite thrift stores in Salt Lake that we visited with the group. But first, some treasures I found:
Vintage powder blue checkbook/wallet, $7. Find a similar one here on ebay.
I like how a section flips open for photos (or business cards etc). I might switch them out for a continuous stream of Hank as a sweet babe. You never know when those might come in handy. “Sure officer, let me get my license and registration. Let’s see here….oh whoops! How did these adorable baby pictures fall out?!? Look at this one in a polka dot jumper! Oh, and here he is eating peas for the first time! What a cute mess!”
This $28 silk dress was an amazing find at Decades. Total reminds me of something from Kate Spade. I’m going to make some adjustments to it so you’ll have to stay tuned to see the final result (fingers crossed I don’t screw it up!). Find some vintage polka dot dresses here on etsy.
Vintage rainbow umbrella, $5. I bet you didn’t even know you needed one of these. Oh, believe me, you do. Find one similar here on ebay.
$2 blue linen vintage book. So pretty on display. Sounds like a romantic story too. Find one similar here on ebay.
We only hit the first four, but I thought many of you out there might enjoy looking through this. This list is by no means comprehensive, just a selection of my favorites. This first DI isn’t necessarily the best, it was just the most convenient to the conference.
