thrift trip: all about {homeware}

After about five months of foregoing any thrift store shopping excursions, I set out today on a little shopping trip of my own to the three closest Goodwills and guys! Here's what I found:

I have been trying to be more selective with what I bring home with me (because contrary to what my boyfriend thinks, no one likes to be a hoarder - yes, not even me!) and I think I finally have a good grasp on what is my style. For now anyway. At the first Goodwill I stopped in, I made a beeline to the back wall where all of the dishware was displayed and on a shelf right next to it was this large brown leather pouch! I'm talking the most gorgeous, soft leather in the best shade of brown (if there was such a thing). Also - it fits my laptop perfectly. At the same location I also picked up these vintage metal wire baskets that I may spray paint a more brass-y color (or maybe even copper?), two books from the series Great Museums of the World (published in 1967), and yes, that cactus print. Anyone who knows me knows I'm a sucker for little succulents and there was no way this was not coming home with me. For $3. At the next GW I picked up two volumes of the History of the World (p. 1937) because I couldn't resist adding to my book collection, and at the third GW I came home with nothing. Because sometimes it works out that way and sometimes you just don't care because you have a cactus print waiting for you in your car that you just want to take home and hang. Or something like that.
