Funky green shelf and drawer liners. I am keeping these in a safe place until I either move or buy a house. I would love my kitchen cup boards lined in this stuff.

My find of the weekend! A vintage YSL (Yves Saint Laurent) Opium tassel necklace
There is a solid disk of opium perfume inside the Burgundy enameled disc.
I seen this in the display case of one of the thrifts I rummage at. My eyes were instantly drawn to the boldness of the necklace.... but then I seen the small YSL letters. So I took out the trusty web enabled phone and did a quick google search which brought up one listed on Etsy for $219 USD needless to say. I stood at that display counter like a HAWK watching a fish in a lake. (Until someone came over to help me)
I seen the price tag. (A mere $3.99)
The worker comes over. *Points to the wrong necklace* "No (I say politely) the one next to it."
"I want to buy it." Do you need to look at it she says? "It's $3.99 right?" I ask Yes she says
"I will take it" I reply.
I guess that heightened her curiosity as she examined the thing like it was a precious gemstone chiseled out of a rock.
I then seen her eyes go a little bigger. YEP I'm pretty sure she seen the YSL logo.
I hope whoever priced it doesn't get in poo poo! *hehehe*
Vintage Opium Necklace in picture above is for sale HERE on Esty
The ad that helped me KNOW I was getting a amazing deal.
Elsapel bright orange bag. Purchased for $2 from a yard sale. Will surely become one of my favorite yard saling bags. It's huge it's bright and Mr. Coco will never lose me amongst all the crazy yard sale HOOPLA!
Found this dress in the same store as the Opium necklace. I paid more for it than I ever pay for dresses. But I plan to re-sell so eventually I should make my invested money back.
From what I am seeing on other blogs there is alot of great things being found at thrifts and sales.
That makes me HAPPY!
In the past couple years garage saling has become WAY too popular here. I noticed it more last year... but now this year it's INSANE. The garage sale ads listed online have over a couple hundred hits. There is like 10-15 cars at a time at each sale.
I know it's these popular shows that have turned all these people into crazy bargain hunters. (Picker shows, Antique Roadshow, Storage wars and so on)
I have a feeling if I am gonna find any good stuff it's going to be because I am one of the first people at the sale.That will prove to be difficult as I don't like being a pesky early bird. The two last garage sales I held we had people show up an hour and a half early. They even have the audacity to knock on your door (Before anythings placed outside) Or call days ahead of time asking if you will be selling
(Whatever kind of stuff they are looking for.)
"Awww well I will just keep on saling as I normally do and try not to let those people piss me off"
