So, today was one of those extremely busy days, but NEVER too busy to squeeze in some vintage shopping am i right? since I don't have a cell phone, my boyfriend calls me and tells me my best friend needs to tell me something important. So I call her up and she says, "Oh my gosh! Destiny! there is a yard sale I saw on my walk around my neighborhood and you HAVE to come out here! This lady's garage and back yard is FULL of vintage clothes!". Even though my best friend lives about 30 minutes away, I made the trip out there even though I had a roller derby meeting scheduled for 6 o'clock and this was around 4:30 in the afternoon!
The entire way there I'm hoping that this lady is still selling because by 4:30 pm yard sales are usually way past done.
We get there, and it was like heaven! I've never been to a yard sale quite like it. Usually yard sales around bakersfield are pure and utter JUNK. even JUNK for me! and I'm a total pack rat!
they had vintage lingerie, dresses, cat eye glasses, whole sets of dishes, shoes, hankies, scarves, bras, robes, slips! the list goes on and on.
we barged on in, and she told us that her sale was closed to the public, but she was nice enough to let us look through her treasures anyways!
I snapped a few shots and this lady thought I was crazy.
She was from San Diego, and couldn't quite understand why a young girl like me found so much interest in her mom's "old junk".
so i picked out 3 dresses and a garter belt and she was nice enough to hold the items for a broke college student like myself
so glad to have a great, vintage loving best friend!
i tried to make the pictures at the end of my blog, but I'm blog-stupid. any ideas?
