Look What I Found

 I found another Penguin ice bucket! Does this ever happen to you while out thrifting? You've been looking for something FOREVER to no avail, then you find it, then you keep finding it! Ha!  Well I didn't hesitate picking this up again. Found it at the Dig N Save, unfortunately no lid, but because it ended up costing less than $1, I wasn't too concerned. 

The original $20 price tag is a joke, right?!
I was also lucky enough last week to thrift both my first PINK Pyrex and MADE IN ENGLAND Pyrex!
Flamingo casserole on the left, and Pyrex England on the right. They're both slightly worse for the wear, but I'm thrilled to have them!
I've also been into building my wardrobe up with more vintage pieces lately, and came across this lovely top:
The prettiest embroidery, and made in Switzerland. It fits like a dream.
One constant, slightly quirky item on my thrift wishlist, is advanced reading copies of books. There's just some strange thrill in knowing that I own something that was never intended for resale.

I found a copy of Chuck Palahniuk's 'Rant':
This will honestly be my first Palahnuik read! Should be interesting!
And perhaps even more thrilling than an advanced reading copy of a book, is a demo of a record!
This is Cheap Trick's "In Color and In Black and White" circa 1977! I think my dad would be proud! Bonus- Cheap Trick is from Rockford, IL- a mere 40 minutes from where I grew up!
The vinyl even came with a promotional poster. It says, "Here's what America's rock press is saying"
This was my favorite review:
"Beatles with balls."- Phonograph World    

I have literally no plans for this entire weekend. There may be some thrifting in the forecast!
