Gloomy, rainy day here in KY so I stopped by a couple of thrift stores on my way home from work. Family is heading down tonight to spend the week with me and view houses (sigh, I'm already tired of house shopping). Apparently, they are bringing the cold down from the north and temps are expected to drop down to the low 40's (sigh again).
It was a good shoe day at the GW near my apartment (the sign says it is KY's 50th GW store. Hmmm, wouldn't be interesting to travel around to 50 stores?)
Nice shoes in my size are a rarity for me because I have the most average size feet out there which means I either miss out or the shoes are really worn. These are both nearly brand new! The boots are a strange golden brown and created by Sam and Libby. I will need to get some anti-slide-across-a-floor skid things, but I love them. The Mary Janes are American Eagle and look modern vintage (or stuck in the mid-90's as I have been accused of in the past...;)
Both look cute with the knee length skirts I've been thrifting in the past year.
The best part about these shoes? They were not marked UP!
Here are a few other treasures: the glass canister (love these and surprisingly find a lot of them in Louisville); two (not vintage) rice bowls; a vintage KY state plate (used to collect these, but paired the collection down a few years ago. Now I only collect states that mean something to me); and a Canada glass. Not pictured is a Billy Bragg CD (I always find great Indie music at this particular thrift), a nature guidebook (Shore birds of North America), a broken strand of pearls for a craft project, and a KY Derby glass I picked up for 50c (I see them all over Louisville, but never for 50c!) Cheap, but fun
On the way back to the apartment, I travel through a really cool, historic Louisville neighborhood called Phoenix Hill. If you ever visit this wonderful, keep-it-weird city check out this area. I saw a junk store I need to get back to one of these days (unfortunately always closed when I am in the area).
