A New Collection

I love a good thrifting trip with my buddies, but every now and then you just need a laid back, therapeutic solo shopping sesh. After dismantling our Christmas decor on Saturday, I proceeded to lay on the couch all day while Ian hit up the after Christmas sales. By Sunday, I was feeling a little restless so it was my turn for some post-holiday retail therapy.

I hadn't been to my favorite thrifting spot in FOREVER so I headed out in the rain to see what I could find...

In the true spirit of thrifting, some days are like a gold mine. Other days, all you seem to find are duds like this:

I think those little numbers speak for themselves. Also, can we all agree that $6.99 is a little steep for a shapeless 80s neon striped track suit? If you can believe it, I made it through the entire store with only a handful of items in my cart, none of which worked out after trying them on. So it was onto the books I went, where I decided right then and there that I was going to start collecting vintage cookbooks after picking up this awesomely retro 1968 Betty Crocker book. My New Years resolution, if you will...

This book is the COOLEST. Full of vintage graphics, classic recipes, and your typical selection of savory jello casseroles. You know, something for everybody!

Luckily, I found a 1975 Family Circle Illustrated Library of Cooking to add to my growing collection, and they are now proudly displayed in my kitchen. At less than $2.00 apiece, I have a feeling that this is going to be a dangerous new addiction....

Now this is a New Years resolution I can handle! Way better than trying to get into shape, right?
