latest thrift finds

36 comments
This is a little overdue by now, but I thought I'd share some of my thrift finds from the Savers half price sale which I had mentioned and went to over a week ago.

A cute blouse, which I tried photographing by the window - inspired by these photos.

The details, the details! I love the collar so much.

A vibrant scarf.

A vintage badminton racquet.

No good for playing, but looks good on the wall, and did you know they make excellent earring holders?

...and a nice pair of boots, just in time for winter!

P.S. submitting this post as a Flea Market Finds post for Her Library Adventures.

Yet another thing to add to my list of things to do when I come to Melbourne - visit Savers!

I love the shot of the blouse and the window, such pretty filtering of the light.

I love Peter Pan collars! I like how you hung the blouse at the window. The translucence adds a dreamy quality.

That blouse is gorgeous. Love what you've done with the badminton racquet too :)

Great finds, Anna! Don't you just love coming away from a thrift store with a big haul? :)

The badminton racquet is adorable. I really like the vintage ones with wooden handles. The newer plastic ones are seriously lacking.

The blouse! Oh, the blouse. So pretty. It's perfect for you in every way. And your inspired photos? Terrific.
