Thrifting: Last Week's Haul.

haul 1haul 2

This little guy blew my mind! It was the first thing I picked up. I've been looking for cool vintage things to put in the Knitxcore etsy shop, but I'm not sure that I'll be able to give him up.

The collar is a little frayed, but I'm not worried about it. It fits like a dream!

haul 4

I actually had two Polaroid camersa in my hand, but I clicked the shutter on this one and the flash went off so I decided that he was the winner. I'm hoping I come across a reasonably priced auction for some 600 film. Keep your fingers crossed!!!

haul 5

Okay, so the book isn't technically a supply but it was only 50 cents. The sock monkey was almost finished!!!! It only needs to be stuffed and sewn shut! I am so souped!

This week has been really quite busy. I apologize for the lack of quality content. I've been up late every night working on History papers and reading books about Gothic Architecture. Last night, I learned about "thrust equilibrium" and the importance of keystones. BLECH!!!!

I hope you all have been having much more fun than I have!


Coming Up...

-The Never-Ending Braided Rug.
-A Work in Progress; The Bathroom.
-The First Roll of Film From My Diana Mini
-Acrylic Stash-busting + Vintage Craft: God's Eye

...and much more

Great finds!
Finding 600 film is... terrible. I have two cameras that take 600 film and I ALMOST bought a third but I decided not to.
The Impossible Project has film, but it's not cheap. Maybe even
It's hard to find film nowaways. :\

Good old busy weeks. And yeah, that towel bar is a keeper, so ridiculous.

Erin Joy said...

Well, at least you found a way to work the phrase "thrust equilibrium" into a post. I mean, if you can, you should, right?

The frog towel holder is ridiculously awesome!

I recently picked up an old Polaroid camera at a thrift store too! I did buy some film from the Impossible Project, but I haven't been super impressed by it. I bought some of their old stock which they don't guarantee that it will work. About half of the pictures I took so far came out with brown spots along the top. It's hit or miss with the old stock, but I'd say it's worth a try!
