There is nothing that I like more than a good day spent thrifting. It's ironic, because as a child I used to HATE being dragged to every craft fair south of the mason dixon line with my mother, and now, I'm totally in for a long day of craft fairs an thrifty finds. Back home in Missouri, there are literally a million little flea markets, estate sales, and vintage stores to peruse for vintage treasures, but here in Boston, I've found it a little more difficult to find my thrifty fix. We do have our share of Goodwills, (incidentally the founder of Goodwill is a BU alum!) but the random antique market or estate sale is sometimes quite difficult to come across. Luckily I have similar friends who don't mind the random road trip for a thrifting fix, and I've always got my trusty vintage-finding backup, ebay. (It's not quite the same as unearthing a treasure in the back of some dusty old store, but when you're looking for specific items, it's generally a great source!)
I've previously discussed some of my collections, most of which are comprised of vintage pieces, but I wanted to share my "Jackpot List"... basically things that I'm always seeking out when I'm thrifting away...

(***I promise that I'll share some of my new vintage acquisitions soon, I had every intention of doing a little photo shoot today, but seem to have come down with the spring bug that's been going around...ick!)
