So I think all of us thrifters have a LIST. The list. That list of items we'd like to find 'in the wild' at least once before we...stop thrifting.
A Bucket List.
One of the items on my thrifting bucket list is a Pendleton blanket.
The item above is as close as I've gotten so far. It's Pendleton and it's a blanket. And it's super cool. But it's not really what I meant. I'm hoping for something a bit older and maybe more Navajo inspired.
Let's see..other items on my Bucket List:
Cathrineholm - hopefully the Lotus pattern. I've found one plain piece of cathrineholm before but not the popular stuff.
Dansk flatware Fjord pattern. Okay, maybe this one doesn't count..cause I actually found some once. It was in a baggie at Goodwill in the hardware section. Hubby said he picked it up and looked at it, then put it down. I found it a few minutes later, saw the IHQ and grabbed it. It was years ago, before I knew anything about anything. Fortunately we put it on auction and did pretty well. Now that I know flatware and could do better...I want to find it again.
Pendleton Navajo jacket
Vintage Ralph Lauren sport-theme sweatshirt or jacket.
Georg Jensen sterling anything.
I'm pretty sure there's more.
The thing with the Bucket List is that it has to be do-able. There are plenty of items I've seen people sell for HUGE money that I know I'm never going to find. The items on my list may be scarce...but I really think it's possible to find them. At least once.
What about you? What's on your thrifting Bucket List?
