Thrifting Fever

Wow, I can't believe it's been a month since I last posted! Who am I kidding?! I've been horrible at keeping a blog. Mostly because I have been incredibly busy, which is a good thing, and when I'm not busy with life stuff, I am busy reading everyone else's blogs! I have been up to a lot this past month. The 4th Craft Saturday happened on the 23rd. We went all out this time and had the event at a new venue and changed the time to 8am - 1pm to coincide with the Des Moines' Downtown Farmer's Market since it is located right outside our venue. We had a great turnout of shoppers and overall I think it went over really well despite the fact that nearly everyone looked tired from getting up so early to set up. I've also started consigning my work in an adorable looking store in Iowa City called White Rabbit. I can't wait to visit the store soon! For the past few weeks, okay so really since about the beginning of May, I have had severe thrifting fever...of the garage sale variety. I've gone practically every weekend and I've found some pretty amazing things so far, some of which came from the best garage sales I have ever been to. The kind where people who throw in the word "vintage" to describe their sale really mean that the sale is full of wonderful vintage items and not just one or two random items. A couple of my best finds from this past weekend include the Fisher Price Lacing Shoe with Play Family from 1965:

and a set of the Snowflake Garland casseroles added to my ever growing Pyrex collection:
