While in Palm Springs and Joshua Tree a couple of weekends back (hey, I have been busy–get off my case), my husband and I hit up a whopping one yard sale. Honestly I have nothing to say about it, but I took two photos that sort of say it all. First off, I *think* this is a baby with a mommy dolphin –- why would anyone create this?
And the $40 Grateful Dead belt buckle … OK, now your yard sale is a head shop too?
This time I was with Heather a girlfriend who collects tons of vintage, but we have never thrifted together — I laid out my ground rules with her pretty fast:
1) I have really good luck finding stuff, more than I will ever buy.
2) If you need/like/want something I have found, just tell me and I will usually hand it over.
They had a huge bin of these “jelly shoes” that had bible scriptures in them.
And this amazing animal print section.
I didn’t really find anything amazing, with the exception of a combination Pharmacist’s jacket that looked like Evel Knievel designed it.
We also hit up another thrift I had never been to before.
I sort of feel in love with the place after walking in and realizing it’s a thrift shop inside of the stroke center. I popped into the bathroom, and found this.
What can you really say? Nothing, right?!
I purchased something here, but I can’t for the life of me remember what it was. We spent the rest of the afternoon driving around looking at amazing midcentury houses.
