Something Old, Something New

Agh, so sorry for the lack of posts, I've been pretty busy this week. But luckily I have bunches of new things to post. So on Sunday, my mom and I dragged ourselves out of bed in the early morning (aka, 9 o'clock) and drove down to "Antiques By the Bay" in Alameda.
If you're one of those people (like me) that don't have that Salvation Army Luck (my phrase for you can never find anything at a decently priced thrift store or other vintage shop) this place is perfect for you.

Unlike some "antique fairs" the stands are filled with some pretty nifty things. The vendors sell everything from vintage shoes to tennis rackets straight up from the 70's.

What I Bought:

(From Left to Right) Birdcage Pendant $2, Vintage Watch Bracelet $45, Ship In Bottle Charm $1, Typewrite Key Earrings $4, Cameo Brooch $5

Cherub Candlestick Holders $2 (set of 2)
(In suitcase I bought) Hat with Pin (that I have absolutely no use for, but bought anyway) $1, Black and Gold Clutch $1, Suspenders $1 (they totally remind me of what the Disneyland employees who run the Matterhorn wear at . Very Sound of Music-ish)

I did get a few more things, which I'm sure that y'all see in later posts. Now off to play the Sims (ohmygoodness, I am such a geek. Don't tell anyone that how I'm spending most of my summer. Shhh) Sorry about the lack of comment replies, I'm going to chat back asap!

Although I'm not really feeling much California love with all this nasty smoke. Seriously, is the whole state on fire?
