I've been trying to downsize as much as possible.I've been going through boxes in the garage and tossing things that sadly broke on the move here and also debating if I really love other thigs enough to want to drag it across the country again.Been listing a lot in my Etsy shop and also just giving things to friends.So with all this downsizing why on earth would I ADD MORE to what I have?Because sometimes you just can't say "No".Such was the case today.
I spend the first half of today at the grandpas.My mother after some cleaning up around the place asked if I wanted to hit up one of the thrifts I haven't been to in awhile at the retirement home,I said yes!I'm trying not to buy things to add more inventory since my shop is another thing I'm trying to downsize as much as possible for the move.I've been trying to keep what I've been adding to the shop from my personal collection but that place always has cute vintage costume jewelry.Jewelry isn't a pain to lug across the country like piles of vintage clothes and such so why not,right?
This place has 2 rooms.One is in the front and has a bit of everything,mostly the clothes,jewelry and accessories.The second room is down a hall and is filled with furniture and clearance things.Normally I hit the front first and ask to me taken to the back but today I felt like going to the back first and I'm glad I did.What was waiting back there that had JUST been put out on the floor?A Heywood Mother F*cking Wakefield dining table with leaf,4 chairs AND the china cabinet!!It was a sign from the vintage Gods that love me and want me to be happy.Downsizing or not I HAD to have these.I'm not want to say "no" to a good deal.They're mine now oh yes.Whatever house we do end up buying now is going to be just THAT much more awesome now.
Remember kids "No" to drugs,"YES" to Heywood Wakefield.
I can't tell you how many years I've hunted for a Heywood Wakefield piece in my budget,which trust me I'm well aware of how unrealistically low my budget is but eventually when hunting vintage the piece you're looking for will come...even if its not the most perfecting of timing!But just go with it!
