My first vintage appointment.

As I mentioned on Friday, I recently went to my first vintage appointment. I asked Erica to accompany me, just in case it was really a murder plot and also because she's really the coolest sister. We met the woman who was running the sale, Maria. The house belonged to her parents and she needed to clear it out quickly. She had an estate sale the weekend before, but still had a lot of great stuff left, so Erica and I were free to peruse nice and calmly. We had a huge pile by the end of our time there, and Erica got to chat with the woman about becoming a teacher. It was so great. I look forward to more appointments like this in the future. Here are just a few behind-the-scenes shots of some of my finds.

    what do you soak your garments in? are they dry-clean only garments that you're washing?

    1. Thank you! I used a touch of detergent and a touch of Oxy Clean. The garments are quite old and I was fearful of using the washing machine.

  2. Oh that's nice. We never have estate finds here, everything just goes in the trash or to charity shops. I would really like to explore someone's house for hidden treasures.

    1. That's unfortunate! Maybe you can find one not too far from home and make a day-trip out of it! :)
