Oooohlala, what do we have here? Is it a collaboration between @galexina and @frecklewonder? Why YES it is! We (Alix and Jenny) have known each other for over ten years—yet we’ve never lived in the same state. Along the way, our fabulous friendship has spanned 2786 miles, three different blog platforms (hello LiveJournal!), the birth of two kiddos, and countless conversations about life, love of pop culture and our common obsession: thrifting vintage goodies. A collaboration has always been a no-brainer, but what to do? After batting around numerous ideas over the years we finally figured it out. One of our favorite things to do is share finds—delighted by new discoveries (“what?? I’ve never seen one of those!”) happily jealous of every awesome score (“that was a dollar??”) and equally horrified (but giggling) at crazy modern day thrift prices (“they wanted how much for that??!”). It’s always fun!
So we are pleased to introduce a special Summer Series: the Retro Rainbow! Each week we’ll pick a different color theme and then challenge each other to “shop at home” to show off cool vintage finds. I’ll be sharing my finds over at Modern Kiddo, and Alix will be sharing her fun finds over here. We hope you swing by both spots and enjoy this fun correspondence in color!
First up, in honor of the 4th of July we present a collection in RED WHITE & BLUE. Take it away, Alix!!
Fan-flippin-tastic!!! I’ve always really loved Alix’s collection of sparkly bangles… and that Evil Kneivel? Get out of town.
We’ll see you here next week, when the color will be…
Oh, and don’t forget to pop on over to Modern Kiddo to see what I was able to treasure hunt in my house!!
