Thrift Store Treasures

Did I mention how excited I am about being Utah
because of the Thrift Stores. Well most of them
we call the D.I. which stands for Deseret Industries.
They're the thrift stores owned by the LDS church.

Here are some of my latest finds-
all in just oneday's visit!!

GRAT finds! Get this... When I was in my late teens and early 20's, I used to go to D.I all the time! I still have some of the most amazing vintage stuff EVER from that store in Sacramento, CA. I have a fabulous gold silver and cream brocade gown with overcoat - the top part of the gown is black velvet. I think the whole thing cost me $6 back then! I used to collect black and white vintage hats and had over 20 at one time. I still have some great vintage jewelry too. Oh... I got rid of so many things in the 90's that I wish I still had! Just last month I flew out to Sacramento to visit family and my mom took me to the same D.I. Boy had it changed!!! However, I found a really cute vintage PINK book from the 30's. But sadly, no more wonderful fashions like I used to be able to find there. Thanks for this great post!
