thrift'n on a thursday - LA edition! | vol 8

hannah shih

I love thrift shopping, but it's even more exciting in another city! Lucky for me, I was able to make a stop at Melrose Trading Post while I was in LA. Seriously, the best place to be on a Sunday afternoon if you're ever in town! After a few hours of hunting and digging, I proudly left the flea market with these goodies!

Clockwise: I spotted this vintage mirror and it was love at first sight. It has a lovely floral detail on the back with just the right mix of pink and gold! Bargained down this little beauty for $10 (saved $5!). The fork + knife napkin holders were just too cool to pass up! I got a set of 10 for only $6 -- a steal, right? Lastly, for just $7, the ginormous wooden clip was the perfect new addition to my desk. From holding bills to business cards and notes, the clip stands upright and will be a helpful reminder tool!

With the thrift goodies you find, do you ever wonder who the previous owners were and what they were like??

I can't believe it's August! The year has been going by so quickly. I've been traveling a lot this year, and was just in LA for a few days and thought I'd highlight some of my favorite stops. PS -- the weather was AMAZING!

Hollywood Farmer's Market \\ A cool market with tons of fruits, cheeses, mushrooms, flowers and more! My favorite part was watching a florist make arrangements on-site with her assortment of gorgeous flowers.

Melrose Trading Post \\ Seriously, a thrift shopper's paradise! This place is a such a sweet place to find treasures. It's held in the parking lot of Fairfax High school and the $2 admission fee goes directly to support the school's programs -- a win-win situation! I spotted this cute wooden mini-vanity + chalkboard for $35, but it would've been too much trouble to take it back to Brooklyn! Instead, I found some other goodies that I'll post tomorrow!

Hemingway & Pickett \\ An art + design store in Silver Lake that I really adored. Very well curated with lots of neat items. I especially loved the watercolor record exhibit by Amelie Scalercio called "A Ghost in My House."

Salju Dessert \\ I've got to say, the best shaved ice I've ever had in my life!! I got the matcha (green tea) shaved show with red beans, mochi, mango and condensed milk. Truly A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Sprinkles Cupcake \\ The red velvet one was delicious, but I enjoyed the cinnamon sugar cupcake more ... also because I bought it from the ATM cupcake machine!! It was definitely worth the extra 50 cents!

Stay tuned for my finds for tomorrow's Thrift'n on a Thursday!
