Random Things

Usually when I hit the thrift store I stick to the clothing and shoe aisles. Yesterday I took a detour through the housewares section and ended up finding a few fun pieces. I couldn't resist this pretty little vintage vase. I'm not a smoker, but I'm sure I'll find a good use for these square little translucent glass ash trays. I think I'll line them up on my dresser to keep earrings and small jewelry in. Who could walk away from a set of Return of the Jedi glasses? Apparently not me. In more apparel related finds, I also scored this red suede fringed purse which I'm looking forward to wearing with little black dresses and sandals.

Those drinking glasses are fab. I tend to neglect the homeware section too, though I did once find a very nice tea pot..

Thanks for all of your comment!

Angela: I think I'll be keeping the glasses for now. I just can't resist.

Patty: I go to the Salvation Army and Goodwill. Or any other thrift store I run across!

jajajajaja Sally Jane, you strike me as a Star Wars old school fan, like me. We should trade photos of our respective collections! :)

I'm glad they're with you, still perusing ebay for a set for myself, though **keep fingers crossed!**
