I've found myself some neat stuff to ward of the end-of-summer blues...
This is a WWII-era U.S. Army sack (dated 1941); they sure were built tough, as this one is in such nice condition. I found a nickel from 1961 and a fishhook inside, so I guess it had a second life carrying someone's tackle around; always fun to have a little backstory! I'm going to use it to carry my books around at school.
"1941", see? That was a neat find, and just $5.00!
My Fall shoes! Inspired by all those '30s and '40s college girl pictures, I fell in love with these Bass saddle shoes. Don't ya love the little heel? Makes 'em a little bit more elegant than classic saddles, but they're still very comfortable to walk in.
Some cool dresses I found at the antiques store: this red 1950s house dress was $8.00; the 1960s pink square dancing dress, 1940s rayon day dress, and 1940s knit sweater dress were all $10.00 each.
....Just to reassure my fellow vintage lovers , I should add that I just hung up the sweater dress for pics, and it is now sitting all nicely folded on my shelf ;)
Not a "find" per say, but after months of dreaming, I finally got the gumption to bang a few nails in the walls and start building a Wall Of Hats in my bedroom at home. Yes, now I'm in a dorm room (darned residency requirement...!!) but I can't wait to go home again and spend some more time admiring my handiwork, haha!
Found anything fun for the upcoming autumn??
