Recent Manic Thrift Store Finds

Apparently, folks with BD tend to head toward mania at the end of summer - supposedly due to the change in light. Well, part of mine is thrift shopping. I go on binges once a month three days before my period, (five days before that I'm an exercise freak). So, considering it's the end of summer and 28 days has just passed - I'm now having what I'm going to refer to as the End of Summer Manic Sale!

Might as well sell now because I know in the winter when I'm sitting here all depressed in the rain the last thing I'm going to want to do is muster up enough gumption to sell stuff!

If I didn't go through these episodes I would have never had the immense success I've had in my life doing what I love. I'm very lucky to have a supportive husband who understands and can say, 'Hey, you're doing that shopping thing again'. However, when he told me the other day that if he could have any interiors style it would be Italian minimalist I felt a little bad.

My style - a mash up of Scandinavian, bohemian, 70s beach chic is pretty much the furthest away from Italian minimalism you can get! Having said that, I've introduced him to Swiffers so he can at least visualize a sleek Italian surface.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not desperate to sell stuff - everything I've bought I love and I buy with the intention to sell. I put a lot of effort into my sourcing. The pieces I've chosen are high end, quality pieces not a bunch of crap that I shoved in a basket because I was out of control. Everything is vintage and most is from the early to late 1970s.
