Thursday was a 12 hour sourcing marathon for me! I started out at a thrift store, went to an estate sale and spent all evening at my favorite weekly auction. I bought some of my favorite things to sell: 80’s clothing, mid century glassware and things from the 90’s that I remember being cool 20 years ago.
I found a great thrift store that had so many clothes from 20+ years ago. I was excited to find some fun printed and embroidered sweatshirts and these 90’s platforms that I would’ve totally rocked in middle school.
Speaking of things I rocked in middle school, I’ve been really looking for 90’s prom dresses lately. I see them fairly regularly and just started trying to sell them a few weeks ago. I love the long lean silhouettes and many shades of velvet.
One of my favorite things about selling vintage now is coming across things I have fond memories of from my childhood and being able to sell them as “vintage”. I can’t say I remember seeing Kazaam but remember hearing about it when it came out. Space Jam I was certainly in love with when it came out and I remember watching Pocahontas on VHS just about every day for a while.
Not to be distracted by more recent vintages I also had my eye out for mid century gems. I love finding Culver brand glasses or those of any other maker who liberally used gold print. I stayed late at my favorite auction to win this set and also found a few little crackle glass pieces.
I also bought 3 bags of these mostly 80’s vintage coal mining stickers. I love stickers and other ephemera and bought these to sell but also to enjoy looking through.
