As promised, today I want to share with you a few of the treasures I picked up on my Colorado road trip. There were so many little shops in these charming mountain towns, it was all I could do not to stop at every single one!
Anyway, on to the goods. This first one is a sheepskin jacket that looks absolutely adorable with jeans. We found in this little vintage shop so I have no idea where it came from, but it is so cute! The only downside is that I am already too big in the belly for it to zip up, so I guess I will have to wait for next winter. Got it for $65! Just to put that in perspective, we checked out this swanky leather shop in Telluride and Brent fell in love with a men's sheepskin jacket...for $1,800. Which one would you buy? :)
Next is an item I didn't even know I wanted, but it fell in my lap and I couldn't resist. At a little antique shop in Montrose, this little guy was selling for $22. It looks so perfect sitting in a sunny corner of my kitchen, and it holds all my onions and potatoes. All it needed was a good cleaning. You should have seen me trying to wrestle it into our backseat next to Nina, even strapping it into a seat belt so it would be safe on the drive!
Last (but not least, not by a long shot!) is my favorite find of the week. We were in a thrift shop in Aspen when I saw this quilt. It had a sign on it that said "Display Items Not For Sale" and I was so bummed out. On a whim I asked about it as I was leaving. The woman told me that earlier in the day they had decided that they could no longer keep things on display and not allow them to be sold...so they sold it to me for $50! Can you believe it? The quilt is at least big enough for a full-size bed, hand-stitched, in perfect condition. Why would anyone ever give this up? I washed it three times and here it is on my guest room bed!
