We continue my New Year's weekend thrifting extravaganza with the Vinyl Whores. For Friday we decided to head up to Waterbury, where I had a very successful venture last Presidents Day.
Stop 1: The elusive St. Vincent De Paul in Derby.
Well, I finally found the building, but they were closed for the entire last two weeks of December. It still eludes me.
Stop 2: Books by the Falls
Fortunately there was a used bookstore a few buildings away. The owner was having a sale, anything priced under $10 was $1. There Dan and I dug through the cook and craft books. I came up with another Peg Bracken book:
And a book on painting trays. Though it's more about stencils than Toleware, it's still interesting.
Stop 3: The Waterbury St. Vincent De Paul
I had hoped to find a couch here, but no luck. The only thing I went away with was this vintage black Mod dress for $1. I plan on shortening it a couple inches to an above the knee length.
Stop 4: The Waterbury Red White and Blue Store.
I found this vintage purse for $1.50. It's in perfect condition and still has a little mirror from Saks 5th Avenue.
Stop 4: Waterbury Goodwill
And here we find Pyrex. Specifically, Spring Blossom Glasses! 13 of them at $1 each. The boys found themselves the Butterfly Gold D-handled mugs for .50 each.
Stop 5: Waterbury Savers
I decided this year to winter coat shop at the thrifts. I had hoped to find a really great vintage coat. I think this one from J Crew will do for $25. It's wool and cashmere. I think that it also has a Thinsulate lining, because I wore it last week when it was 20 degrees and I was fine.
Stop 5: Meriden Savers
I particularly like this Savers because of it's size, the clothing section is huge. But for all of that I only bought this green bandanna.
