We woke up to pouring down rain today. Fairly typical for an Oregon holiday weekend. I am not complaining though. It actually feels nice as the temperature is mild and everything is still green and not yet all brown and dead. We went out for breakfast, scones and lattes, then I headed out alone for Saturday morning junking. I found two Halloween costumes for Oliver! He is wearing one as I write this and I do believe he will not want to take it off until after Halloween. Found lots of other stuff too like a medicine cabinet from the 20's with an old and pretty beveled mirror in it and the sweetest glass shelves, a few dresses, some glass and silver, a cashmere scarf, new shoes...all my favorite things.
Most is for the shop, a few things are for me. The 1920's silk dress in the first picture is a true treasure that just arrived in the mail yesterday. I found it on etsy. The picture was blurry and the description stated it needed mending but it was in so much better condition than I thought it would be! And it fits perfectly. I will mend what I can, hopefully without damaging it since it is delicate and then I will wear it with tights and heel and a cashmere cardigan.

Wow, the dress is amazing! What a great find and so nice it's even better in person that you thought it would be.

Oh, that cabinet sounds like the kind I wouldn't be able to walk away from -- even if I didn't need it. I love anything from the 20s and 30s... beautiful dress, too. You have such an eye for thrifting..! I wish I could come along with you.
