My birthday was last week, so in celebration, I did a lot of thrift store shopping!
My thrifting style is a bit different than some of my favourite bloggers. I'm not a big fan of kitsch decor, vintage clothes, or cute animal figurines, at least not in my own home. I'm very interested however in antiques, interesting and odd curios, things I can use, unique but trendy clothing, and books! I always come home with bundles and bundles of books at the thrift store. Sometimes I think the prices they charge are too high though, considering some of them are old discards from libraries and such.

I loooved the colours, and it was all four for $5, so I got'em!
Some things I didn't get, but secretly wanted to...
|This fabulously tacky bejeweled bracelet.|
This AMAZING trunk
which was $70. for $10 it would have been mine.
Hope you enjoyed part one of summer thrifting! Second part will be up soon! :)
