Saturday Morning Daydreams

I kind of want one of these for my very own.

vintage clothing shop
Isn't this little nook delightfully cozy?

vintage cameras
This is basically my dream come true.  Yep. 

thrift shop sign
I don't think I'll ever get sick of this photo.

record store
Yes, please. (source)

vintage shop
There is so much colorful goodness in this picture.
Just looking at it makes me happy.

vintage boutique
I could spend hours in this place.

I'd rather be thrifting
A thought that goes through my head on a daily basis.

I know, I know - bloggers are always writing about thrift themed topics. But on this Saturday Morning, I am daydreaming of all-things-thrift, and for good reason. This afternoon, I'm meeting my friend Cheri (aka my thrifting adventure partner in crime since high school) to check out a brand new store filled with 6,300 square feet of resale goodness. I'm also just a little bit excited about the fact that tomorrow, Robbie finally gets home from summer tour for a whole month (!!!), and we have all sorts of plans to hunt for goods for our wedding at estate sales and vintage stores. I also spent most of the day yesterday adding beautiful recently-thrifted goodies to the vintage/gently worn section of my online clothing shop. So it makes sense that thrifting would be on my mind and in my daydreams today, and I'm feeling extra-inspired by it. I hope these thrift and vintage themed images bring some inspiration to your weekend as well!

(Pssst...  You can check out past editions of Saturday Morning Daydreams right HERE).

I have one more thing to share, and it's a little off topic but pretty awesome nonetheless.  One of my July sponsors, Esprit, is offering up a seriously amazing discount for you, and it's good for this weekend only.  Just visit their online shop, and enter the code JULYFLASH when you check out.  You'll get 40% OFF (yes, 40% off!) your entire order.  Definitely worth mentioning, right?  Enjoy!

  5. I love this post, too! Maybe you've inspired me to go thrifting this afternoon, if I can get out of my jammies. :)

  6. I can't get enough thrifting in my life! I absolutely love that thrift store sign photo:) You have such beautiful pieces in your shop, too!

  7. i'm with ya on the vintagemobile. BADASS!

  8. I have used some of these photos myself on my tumblr...I definitely would rather be thrifting right now...or shopping for records.

  9. Thrifting is so popular for a reason- you never know what treasures you'll find. I try to thrift (lol, love how "thrift", "thrifting" is an adjective in itself) with my mom every Saturday morning.

  11. beautiful pictures! Now I want to go to a few local thrift shops, but instead I have all this homework to do! That might be incentive for me to finish my homework faster :)

  12. Thanks all! Yes, thrifting is awfully fun. Sometimes I wish I could do it full time. Maybe we should all get together and get our very own traveling vintage RV? ;)


  13. I loved this collection of photos! The "Thrift Shop" photo is iconic. You're right; who WOULD tire of it? Also, thank you for including the photo of the cameras! I think I am going to be doing a collage post centered around vintage cameras, so this photo and subsequent link definitely helped! I'm so glad I stopped by; I'll be checking back soon. :) Have a good rest of the week!

  14. I have been looking for years to find a place that has retro stickers to paste on snail mail envelopes, cards and the like (peace signs, Steal your face,dancing bears, GD memorabilia,etc.) Can anyone help? Reply to Thanks - Peace & Love
