i really haven’t been thrift store shopping in awhile. not as much as i used to, anyway. my problem is i’d like to open up a little etsy vintage store, but i can’t commit (and i’ve got the engagement rings to prove it. bah-dump-bump.) i just can’t commit to buying stuff i don’t need or want to buy, but stuff i know would sell in a heartbeat were i to open an etsy shop. i think. what is it? is it laziness? probably a lack of knowledge. it takes me forever to teach myself how to do anything where the computer is concerned.
anyway – i was being the “great friend” yesterday and drove to a vacationing friend’s house to water her plants, so i figured while i was out and about and practically there-ish, i might as well take myself to the rich town thrift stores.
got this little cathrineholm sauce pot (amongst other little odds and ends.)
i couldn’t commit to buying (3) cathrineholm small orange plates because i thought they were a little expensive for my blood. but in hindsight, they weren’t. i don’t need ’em. but i bet someone else out there does. so i waffled. and let them be. same with a few vintage purses. i certainly don’t need any more vintage pocketbooks. but i left (3) of them behind. and they were cheap. and i didn’t buy a coffee table and blah blah blah. i think i’m just being “careful” with my money since i don’t have a job. but then i think this should be my job. seeking out the beautiful crap for the world to buy. do you see my wishy-washyness? it’s relentless. oh it’s agonizing living in my indecisive head.
for now, i’ll blame the heat.
