Thrifting Goodness Tour: Flukes, Finds and Friends

2 Flares 2 Flares ×

Every time I go to my favorite vintage/thrift Flukes, Finds and Friends I think, oh I will remember to share it with you all and I promptly forget.  Well today I snuck out for a quick trip to Newburyport and I am SOOOOOO glad I did because this came home with me.I am so looking forward to creating with her as inspiration. I actually couldn’t believe she was sitting there on the floor and no one had claimed her and brought her home, maybe that’s why the urge was so strong to go today, she was calling to me.  I also came home with theseNewspaper from 1887, old post cards and other vintage papers.  I love these old folding rulers, they remind me of my Dad always, he used his constantly, had to scarf it up. And, I actually took photos around the store to share with you.  Along with some special photos just for some of my blog friends.For Caterina and her gardens…Driftwood boats, aren’t these charming…For Pamela, Karen, Katie, Barbara, Steph, Deb, Dori, Jill and Terrie and all my mail art friends.And for Becca…Last but never least for my pal Kim(aka Kimbucha) these last few- things to create with…..This place rocks.  Hope you enjoyed it.
