Thrifty Finds and Smashing Pumpkins

I found this shirt for Noah at a thrift store in a small town earlier this summer, brand new but very vintage cool! I love the embroidered bucking broncos on it and the pearl snaps. He looked pretty rockin when his sister Autumn took him to meet Jimmy Chamberlin from the Smashing Pumpkins. (see Purple Squirrel for that post.) Noah's hat came from Autumn's yard sale.

A lovely little embroidery piece, prefect for a pumpkin and some candy corn to sit upon.

A Beistle Company vintage witch in a brown dress with a honeycomb cauldron. She's sitting on my mantle... I know, it's a tad early for Halloween decorations. But I just got her this weekend at an antique shop, why pack her away for a few weeks?

The Beistle Company was founded in 1900 and are still in business today.

I love a lot of Beistle's images. Their 50's stuff is insane!!!

That is a cute shirt on the young'un, pardner.

It's never too early for Halloween decorations! Okay...April would be too early I suppose.

Nah, it's never too early. We have a few items out already. People probably walk past our door and think we're freaks, but who cares? Halloween is the BEST holiday!

Noah looks like a cool dude in his hat and shirt.

LOVE the shirt... love it! Ditto on the witch. I hung up one of my vintage Halloween decorations last week too, in my office. I'm feeling extra Halloweenie this year!

I just saw a beistle witch in a magazine that looks pretty close to that. I think its older and it was a fortune wheel thing. Anyway they said its worth between $100 and $300. You should look yours up too.

Man what an awesome shirt! Esteban would like to buy it from Noah when he out grows it! You should look at the country living magazine for October, thought of you. Has a lot of your style decorations for Halloween.

We also have a few squirrel things for you that we have been collecting when we see them! Have to make a trip to visit you!

Glad to hear that school is going well! Do you like the new location? We miss PPP very much! But thanks for giving Esteban such a great school foundation!

Hope to see you next Sat, if not, we understand!
