Vintage Flight Book

I got this Flight book for $2 because I thought my uncle would like it. I’m not particularly interested in planes, but I do appreciate the layout of this book. It’s a large book and every inch of it is filled with copy and images—it feels very newspaper-like.

Maybe I’m just so used to seeing coffee table books that are filled with giant photos and lots of white-space (which I love), but it’s rather refreshing to see something that looks different.

Things I Didn’t Buy 79

I thought these old tennis rackets were awesome.

I wasn’t entirely sure what this item was for but it looked interesting. I thought it was for cooking since it looks like a pan on a long stick.

I liked this book cover illustration.

I really liked these Japanese wooden nesting boxes.

I considered getting this Star Trek glass because I thought it was amusing—but resisted.

Thrifted for $6.12

For $3.13 I got this navy and white sweater.

And this purple sleeveless top.

Fleetwood Mac’s The Dance cd.

And an egg slicer.

Finally, I got this awesome National Geographic book from 1989 for $2.99. The inside’s not very interesting, but the cover is fantastic. I love the color and the gold geometric design on it. Sooooooo pretty.

Needlepoint Book

I bought this book from the 1970s for $1. I haven’t ever done needlepoint, but I liked the patterns in it.

I like some of those geometric patterned pillows.

Here are some of the patterns in the book.

Things I Didn’t Buy 78

Here are some cute sewing patterns. The first one is this vest and culottes pattern from the 1970s that I think is awesome.

I thought these 1970s overall dresses were interesting—I probably wouldn’t wear them but they do make a statement.

I liked these 1970s separates.

This was a nice simple dress pattern.

And I thought these pajamas were interesting.

Finally, I liked the simplicity and asymmetry of these 1960s dresses.
