A La Modern

Love the Neverending Story as well - good times, I remember that movie along with Goonies and Dark Crystal from when I was a kid too.

Wish I knew more about jewelry. Have been trying to look for it more at thrifts and estates, but I rarely recognize anything and don't have a good eye for that kind of stuff (typical guy I guess). Also seems very competitive where we live. That owl necklace is really cool though!

I love the tikki mats! My sister in law (Hub David works at O'Reilly) loves those things! Email me and let me know your price or trade!

Great Haul, Selena! Wrote to Ala Modern...don't your remember that spiky gazelle thing in our yard? I was always petrified a kid would impale themselves on it! I bought mine in India.

You may believe these four proverbs:
Whom the gods destroy, they first make mad.
Life is a leaf of paper white, thereon each of us may write his word or two.
On earth there is nothing great but man; in the man there is nothing great but mind.
Everything ought to be beautiful in a human being: face, and dress, and soul, and ideas.


I have to avoid coming to visit until our sale season starts. You make me so anxious to get out there looking and bargaining.
If you really want to make a connection with the movie buff downsizer, write a thank you note. You have the address, tell him how you enjoyed his sale, and mention that you would be interested if he has more to sell but not enough to do another house sale. done politely I am sure it would be proper. Hand write it and I am sure he'll be flattered.


Congrats in your finds this weekend...I'm jealous since the garage sales around here are wanna-be estate sales but usually consist of "product" that should have gone in the landfill years ago.

I'm not a professional reseller by any means. Professional thrift BUYER is another story but we won't talk about that closet. :) If you're still taking questions, I am curious as to how you decide whether to sell a set/group of items together or individually? Example: Before Christmas, I picked up a set of the Cat's Meow town shapes. They didn't work as I'd hoped in my village and have gently landed in my small to-resell pile. Do you find better success with selling individual pieces where people may want to fill holes in their collections or is easier/cheaper/less headache to go for the white whale? And really, I'm thinking any multi-item set here...hard to find dishes, etc.
Thanks so much for sharing your finds and processes. Even if it does incur drooling from some of us! LOL


Adorable finds as usual! I love the Auryn-like necklace and the picnic basket! (You can order a replica here tempting!)

If the deal doesn't go through with Amy on the tiki mats, I'd love to buy them! I'm a freak with authentic vintage tiki merchandise.


We got lucky with week with our local Friends of the Library. Bill volunteers there, and prior to one of their sales, they let him take a couple of boxes of whatever he wanted. SCORE! The rest of the sales this weekend were pretty spotty. Hope it starts to pick up as the weather gets better.


I have actually written a thrift share monday blog post of some buttons and things I have thrifted the last few weeks. :o)

the books and dvds look like a great score... I wish I could go thrifting with you again some time. I miss estate sales in California... and there is no such think as yard sales here...such a shame.


What a great week you had! Thanks for sharing the estate sale website. Looks great!

That necklace does bare a resemblance to the symbol on the cover of the Never Ending Story.

Wow, you scored a lot of great finds this weekend!

love, love, love thrift share mondays. It's a great way to start the week.


great stuff, selena. my great thrifting story of the weekend was finding a mother-of-the-bride dress for a friend at a thrift shop - only $8 and she'll look like a million bucks!

Are you selling that MCM dustpan and brush? I think I'm in love...


Hi Selena! I wanted to stop by and say that I've been following your blog for a couple of weeks now and I just LOVE it! I'm actually reading all your posts. It's a great resource as I've just started reselling. Also, I linked up earlier today and I'm trying to put your button on my sidebar, however, I can't find a code. Can you help me with that? Thanks!
