i love this antique store
they always have a whole case full of vintage jewelry for $4 a pop!

pure heaven

these are my treasures i bought today






(the ring on my index finger in this pic is a ring dan bought me for our anniversary last year... similar to the one below, but they are not the same)






one of these pretties
ring, turquoise flower clip on's, pearl cluster clip ons or key (which will be turned into a necklace) just may be a part of the giveaway coming up...

oooh you scored today on awesome awesome pretties!
you look so pretty and elegant in your pics:)
did you end up getting that red lipstick from mac?

Kassi said...

thanks! no mac for me... i think it's revlon or something... nothing fancy. and i found a pretty orange from l'oreal... i think it's called volcano... i thought of you.

lydia. said...

you're so pretty. :)
such beautiful finds, too.

Kassi said...

thank you and thank you lydia!!! ;-)

monica said...

i love the turq earings,,,

Kassi said...

yay! thanks for letting me know monica! whichever piece i'm told you guys like the best will be part of the giveaway!

my name is lauren. said...

my pretty friend ♥.

love the red lips. i found the best red ever. it's smashbox. it's this white tube...just one color...i can't remember what it's called, but they'd know if you asked. anyway, it's red, but not so red that you can't wear it every day. it looks a lot like yours.

i like mac's russian red too. is that the one brandi's talking about?

you found such pretty things today! i'm completely infatuated with that ring. like...i want it to come live in my jewelry box :). the turquoise earrings are lovely too.

none of my friends are big on thrifting. i'm jealous right now that you live so far away and we don't get to thrift together :(.

MannMom3 said...

Cute stuff..but, uh..when did you start wearing red lipstick?

Kassi said...

thank you darling! i'm not so sure of the red... but i've been wanting to get a red for those special occasions for some time now... i went cheap... cuz that's how dan rolls ;-)
i think brandi is talking about the mac liner in redo that james from bleubird is wearing in the post below this one...

yay! you like the ring! i love it too... hard to give any of this up but whichever gets the most 'i like...' then it will be part of the giveaway... so far it's the turquoise earrings.

i wish you lived around here too... or i lived around you... either way, it would be fun to have someone to thrift (i actually prefer antiquing since our thrift stores suck) or antique with that has similar taste as i do!

Kassi said...

keel.... today. and just because i wanted to feel pretty for the pics i took of my stuff ;-) BUT i have been wanting to buy red forever now... since i'm almost thirty and all and red is so womanly. ;-)

my name is lauren. said...

you should definitely do red lips more often. it's a great instant pick-me-up :).

Kassi said...

i agree. thanks love. xx

Tammara said...

$4.00 each from an antique store is a great buy for vintage jewelry items.

Kassi said...

seriously, i know! i have no idea how old anything is or what it's worth... but i go for what i like and is pretty to me... and this particular antique store has a HUGE case full of jewelry for only $4. it's amazing!

if you ever come to huntington beach you should check it out!

my name is lauren. said...

kass...we have to go to this store when we visit! $4 jewelry sounds amazing!

Kassi said...

yes yes yes! it's a date!!! :-)

Allie Garcia said...

ah! i love the turquoise earrings! i hope those are the giveaway. my hub and i are moving near huntington in the next couple years, and im so stoked for good thrifting that doesnt just consist of retired slot machines :)

Kassi said...

allie, i think you may be in luck... so far the turquoise earrings are the ones everyone seems to like the best!
where near huntington will you be moving to?

crissy said...

All beautiful. I've always wanted to be a thrifter, but I never have. Don't really know where to go. Think it would help to have someone to go with. Oh, and time. That would help too. ;)
Anyway, I am in love with those gorgeous pearl clusters. What a fantastic find. I'm pretty sure I would wear them everyday. Even if I were lounging in my jammies.

Kassi said...

crissy, i have a hard time finding stuff at thrift stores... always much better luck at antique stores. i hope you find time and somewhere to go... it really is so fun!
i'm glad you like the pearl clusters - i love them too and totally agree with you... they would make anything look prettier.... even pj's!

samboy said...

ooh i love the pearl clusters! they are gorgeous! x

danielle and dinosaur toes said...

I A-D-O-R-E that ring! I've got an obsession with big ol rings. There's an antique shop here that has baskets and boxes full of pretty old costume jewelry for 50 cents each, and sometimes there are multiple things in each bag for 50 cents, so I usually end up coming out of that store with enough to start a business!

danielle and dinosaur toes said...

And I forgot to mention how much I love your bangs. I truly am jealous because I still haven't gotten up the courage to cut my own. So anyway, pretty hair, Kassi!

Kassi said...

samboy - me too! love them!

danielle - how fun... and i thought $4 was a good deal! thanks for the compliment on the bangs! cut yours... hair grows back.... and start long enough so that if you hate them you can still clip them back! :-)

heather said...

i think i am loving the ring! you just need to head south a little. i have been having some very good luck lately in anaheim

Morgan said...

lovely finds! I'm coveting the blue flower earrings. so beautiful!

Anna said...

I want those blue earrings! They are beautiful.

Kassi said...

heather, do you live in anaheim? i'll have to check it out.... thanks for letting me know. the ring is so fun, glad you like it!

morgan and anna - glad you like the turquoise earrings... pretty sure they will be part of the giveaway... or maybe... maybe... i'll just add whichever one of the pieces the winner likes best.... you'll know later this week! thanks for the feedback!

marisa said...

in LOVE with these. what antique shop do you go to?

Kassi said...

i went to the one downtown off of main street... i love that place.
it was so great seeing you at church today... you and dani are super cute and so is his cute little brother! hope to see more of you guys!

heather said...
