The winner of the 18" doll outfit giveaway is LittleYellowBirdBoutique! Be sure to check out her Etsy shop. The outfit will be shipped this Monday.

In other news, I visited a rather out-of-the-way antique mall this week that'd I'd never been to before. It was in a warehouse and it smelled kind of strange, but it was definitely worth it.

The prices were insanely low and I found some amazing items. Besides, I just love being around vintage things. I gives me a new perspective on history that I doubt I could ever receive from a textbook.

Here's what I found:

My new jewelry favorite, this great Betsy Johnson-esque charm bracelet.

A copy of Life magazine from 1941.
The caption under the cover photo states that 'the pretty Mrs. Bertram Benedict' was a freelance fashion illustrator who moonlighted as a volunteer air-raid spotter.

A tiny beaded purse....

...and this really unique purse; I love the clasp and buckle.

A few patterns from the '40s ($1.95 each! Crazy!).
Aren't their hats and hairstyles great?

And to top it all off, a few bags of pins (I like putting these on gifts/packages instead of a bow).

Have you been vintage shopping recently?

that charm bracelet is adorable! I love charm bracelets to no end.

and yes, actually, I went vintage hunting yesterday! I found a chunky turquoise cardigan that I KNOW will become a much loved fixture in my closet.
