More Thrifted Treasures

My real treasure this time was finding nine vintage Vera Neuman scarves in one thrift store!  They are all so similar it is interesting to speculate, was it a collector that donated or one owner with a love of polka dots?  Each one is in excellent condition.   I was thrifting in North Carolina and secreted my treasures across state lines home. The scarves were fifty cents each. 

This leather handbag was fun to find.  The flash really picks up the colors but it's really quite muted when I carry it.  The bag was priced at $7.00. 

More like this, but the previous picture really brings out the detail.  It is great to carry when wearing animal prints! 

This little gem comes complete with a chipped nose which gives it an authenticity of having been around for "ages".  It could have been dug up in distant ruins, but I suspect it was probably from the local nursery and happily displayed until it was chipped and discarded as "ruined".  I snapped it up and hung it in my hall way and admire it as an architectural treasure.

What luck to find all those scarves in one place - you must have been so excited! And I see the little ladybugs - hope there's one waiting for me out there. I found two scarves so far and received one as a Christmas gift!

You really must check out the Vera book - there's also countless pics on Flickr and Pinterest.

What a lucky shopping spree--my husband said he wouldn't want to be with me if I found 9 Vera's at one time! I own two and am hoping to enrich my trove but they are rare in my area. Also like that purse--good for you!

The scarves are beautiful, but I really love the bag! How much did you pay for the scarves and how much for the bag?
