I've never really done a haul post before because I tend not to buy a bunch of stuff at once. But when I went to the New England Shake-up about a month ago, I have to say, I did pretty well at the shops, especially at the car show. I thought I'd buy one big thing--probably a pair of Freddie's of Pinewood jeans--but I never found a pair in my size and I ended up with a bunch of small things:
- 1950s blue sweater from Miss Ruth's Time Bomb
- 1950s black beaded cardigan. I've wanted one of these adorable beaded cardigans for a long time! Glad I finally got one at a good price.
- "Bunny Yeager's Photo Studies": Gorgeous nudes and lots of advice for models and photographers alike.
- "Confidential": a pulp novel published in 1939. It's an interesting portrait of New York with a standard but still entertaining plot: a nice boy from a Presbyterian family in small-town New Jersey moves to the big city and becomes corrupted by women (one of them black, gasp!), gambling and drink.
- A midcentury decanter. I'm a sucker for vintage glassware and barware. It features conga players and women with rags on their heads dancing--standard nightclub calypso stuff. Unfortunately, I have to add my own rum.
Not pictured above is this adorable top I got from Julie Mollo, a really cool (very sweet!) designer here in Brooklyn. I saw this t-shirt on her Instagram and I'm excited to finally own one!
I also bought my dear friend this rare stoneware vintage Dunkin' Donuts mug as a souvenir.
So all in all, I'd say I did pretty good!
