What I Love About The Thrift Store Link Party & Halloween Printable

Friday, October 14, 2011

Okay so I'm thinking the name (What I Love About The Thrift Store) is a bit too long lol! What do you think? Got a better name? Lets Go Thrifting, Thrift Me, Thrift is Me, I Love Vintage, My Thrift Fix, Lovely Vintage, Thrifty Goodness...

I want to share 2 things this week just in time for Halloween. First is this vintage costume pattern. It's dated 1978. I actually picked this up online cause I am making the Batman and Robin costumes for my boys. Do you get the Hub channel? Well every night before bed my boys watch the old Batman TV show, so this was the perfect costume choice for them this year! I love homemade costumes, this is my first ever as I just started sewing this year. Batman is started but wish me luck on getting these completed in time!

Next I have this old frame that I picked up for 95 cents.
I don't know about you but many, many times I love the things I find just the way they are. Yeah, sure, some need makeovers but for some reason I usually end up liking the old vintageness of the things I find. How about you? My uncle says I have an old soul. What ever that means??? All I did to this frame was add a Halloween print I made that you can snag for free below.
Snag the free printable here. It's 5x7 and you can have it printed at your local photo lab. Click on the image, then right click and save and it's yours!

Thanks to everyone who linked up last week! Everyone is finding some great stuff! Isn't it fun to see the awesome things people find?

Cheerful Thrifty Door picked up some old Pyrex. I love old Pyrex. So much in fact that I even got some as wedding gift when I got married. Yep wedding gift from the thrift store! Love that! I think it was actually from an antique store. Either way I love it!

It's Still Life found this neat pitcher and many other old things including some like new aprons.

Find anything lately? Share it! We'd love for you to join us.

  1. Amazingly this year some of my best thrifty goodness has been happening in October. (I hope it continues.)
    Now, if I only had time to share!

    Hmm, how about thrifty goodness. I also like Thrift Fix.

  2. That frame is just lovely. I too always am looking at things I could alter but then fall in love with how they look.

    I like "old soul", that is a good name for the connection to vintage pieces.

    Thanks for featuring the pitcher and It's Still Life today. So nice of you.

  3. I love that frame and print! I’d love for you to link up to my Wickedly Creative Halloween Ideas Party.


  4. That frame and print are so fun! I already snagged the print to have printed! So cute! Thank you for being part of TTF and have a fun day!

  5. Love your printy! It reminded me instantly of own of my daughter's favorite Halloween books--Trick-or-Treat, Smell My Feet! by Lisa Desimini. I'm going to have to print it for her. Thank you for sharing it!

  6. Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I am featuring this post on this week's TTF!

  7. The frame is nice, but I certainly wouldn't use the saying. I never liked it as a child and I still don't!

  8. Thank you all for stopping by and leaving comments! Glad most of you are liking the freebie printable.

    Awe sorry anonymous that you don't like the saying, it's so fun paired with the cute little costume feet. Oh well "can't please all the people all the time." Maybe next time! :)

  9. I think its cute Thanks for sharing..I would love for you to share at my "Anything Goes Link Party"http://jeana-marie.blogspot.com/2011/10/anything-goes-link-party.html
