Witchy Prowling Over The Holiday Weekend

   This weekend I did some scouting around some new thrift shops in my area (ok- they've been there forever but they were new to me and that's kinda the point of all this huh?). We had a blast and found some cool stuff.
   Here's some of the loot that I found. Some of it will be altered eventually and some of it will be left alone.
  First up is
     There is a circa 60's jewelry box that I think I'll be using to hold crystals and stones that I find. Also I found a Burberry wallet that HRH is going to absolutely love (I am trying so hard to turn my little fashionista into a thriftinista it isn't even funny- hopefully this find will get me some points).
      Then there is my favorite. It is a circa 60's-70's suitcase that I found that's going to be the basis for my own traveling craft trunk ala Aunt Opal and Celia (Thanks again for the inspiration Celia!).  It is in awesome condition. Here is a picture of the inside-
   I can't wait to get started on that one!
   Also while out hunting I came across some awesome little pitchers. I'm assuming they were for syrup, but I absolutely loved them and will find something to use them for, lol.
  I need to find a way to get the hard water stains out of the really round one, but I'm sure I'll come up with something! Oh and I found  a whole bag of those lovely glass beads that you see there, so I think I'll be whipping up a few sets of runes. I think I smell a giveaway coming soon, lol.
   Oh and I forgot to take a picture of it but I grabbed an awesome Oster blender too. With all the weekend /holiday sales going on I got everything for less than $20 and had a lot of fun doing it too!


  1. I love the quilted lining of the suitcase!! Great finds....now get busy!

  2. The fun thing about thrifting is that you never know what you will end up with next. ^^

  3. Oh FUN!!! I can't wait to see what you do with your traveling craft trunk! I have some old suitcases that I thought about using too...but right now they hold my every evolving seasonal items I put on my altar. I love those little pitchers too!

  4. Try good old vinegar in your fabbo little pitcher to get rid of the hard water residue. You might have to let it sit for a couple of days, but this usually works for me. I'm kind of looking forward to leaving this hard water area!
