Breckenridge, Texas

First off, can I just say crap really loud! Maybe even damnit!? “CRAP! DAMNIT!”

There it’s out of my system…grrr. I cannot find the photos from the rest of my road trip. I wanted to share with you all about Springfield Antique Show and Flea Market and Mendelson’s in Dayton, OH. But I can’t. Because I can’t find my pictures. Major sad face. How does this happen to someone who back up their photos in THREE places? Seriously. I’m not going to tell you about them just yet in case my photo resurface somewhere. Poop.

Alright, enough photo grieving. Onto the next Thrift Tourist!

Two weekends ago I found myself in the quaint little town of Breckenridge, Texas. I’ve got family there and my cousin was getting married. So, I of course had to stop in at whatever resale/antique shops I could get my hands on. I’m glad I did!

First place we went, Lou Lou’s Resale Shop.

Right when we walked in the door, I spotted this great ’50s dinette set. It had two leaves and a matching china hutch.

So those jewels on the back of that chair? Yeah, not my thing but I think the whole set is super cool! I want to see it in someone’s retro dream home all sparkly and fixed up. The table had this great laurel wreath detailing.

But the whole thing needed a really good scrubbing and some Brasso applied with a bit of elbow grease. She’s a vintage beauty though!

Another unique piece was this Tupperware pitcher. The back held six cups. I thought it was super cool.

After Lou Lou’s we headed down the street a bit to Deja Vu Antiques and Collectibles. This was one of those places were you must take your time and look through layers of stuff. It was all meticulously placed, but there was a lot packed into that store! Awesome.

Also, kitty!!! This is Sarah (Sara?), she was a rescued feral cat that the owners took in.

I had my eye on this set of atomic glassware with yellow and white sunbursts. I’d love to have these glass, but they were a bit pricey.

I also spotted this set of 12 zodiac glasses. I’m pretty sure that’s what they were? Maybe? What do you think? They were pretty awesome. I’m not really one for zodiac inspired items, but I thought the colors and condition of these were great!

Okay, can someone please tell me what chlorophyll gum is? You think these were in a pharmacy?

I love the machine though.

Controls breath odors! So euphemistic, nowadays we’d just say “Controls Bad Breath!” Simple ingredients: gum base, sugar, corn syrup, chlorophyll, flavoring, food color.

Lastly, here’s what I snagged. The price was $25 and I got it for $20!! Whoo hoo! I small but heavy two drawer card catalog. I’ve got big plans for this little guy!

 Hope if you ever find yourself near Breckenridge, Texas you give these shops a try!
