I guess I've always been a little "retro." I've shopped through my grandma's stuff and worn her dresses from the 60s, and I love old movies, especially Doris Day. Connecting with other bloggers and thrifters has encouraged my "retro-ness" ("retrocity"?) My decorating style is more Pottery Barn with just a hint of retro mixed in.
These pillowcases are from a recent visit to Salvation Army. They make good linings for my purses, and I picture little girl dresses out of them someday.
Here's some stuff I found during a quick 10-minute dash into the Salvation Army in Rice Lake, Wisconsin when we were there for my cousin Tryn's wedding. I actually thrifted while wearing a black strapless dress! I found this slightly damaged chenille spread (for cutting up) for $1, some rickrack, plus this hand crocheted Barbie dress (also a $1). Inside the dress was a piece of masking tape with this written on it: "Great Grandma Madejski crocheted this dress in the year of 1960." Now, how could I not buy that!
