I love thrift stores...

I found the cutest vases and a table cloth that looks more like a hanky today while thrifting. Look at those flowers! Groovy.
I couldn't help myself- I had to immortalize them with a polaroid. I just put this print up in my shop. I hope you all are having a lovely Wednesday!

I really like the colors! So from one thrift store liker to another, do you have any tips for getting the antique store smell out of vintage fabrics?

I love that photo - I really like that type of vintage floral design, with the fine black outline.

My neighborhood doesn't have any thrift shops; I'm so envious ;)

I soak my vintage fabrics in a bowl (or sink) of cold water and a few tablespoons of vinegar. It smells really bad of course, bu then I rinse the item, and hand wash it with my favorite gentle detergent. It usually works to get that "thrift shop scent" out. : )
