Thrifting this month was surprisingly successful given that it only was one decent trip. I went to Kassel with Verdinium and we really only made it to the big one.
I’m always happy to find LARP-able dishware at the thrift shop. I’ve wanted a jug for some time now so this was a particularly happy find for me. The wooden plate will have to be sanded down and oiled sometime soon, but isn’t it great? And heavy, too. The mugs were a great addition to the jug, and you probably can never have enough mugs, especially not handmade ones.
Verdinium found this very pretty box for me. It’s lightweight wood and I don’t know what I’ll put in yet, but it might be a candidate for my new jewelery box.
I admit I can’t resist stripes like these. The bag looked so circus-y I had to take it with me! It’s also a convenient size for make-up, and I don’t have a decent make-up bag for when I’m not at home, so it’s even useful!Another thing Verdinium picked up to hold under my nose was this copper brooch. The pin is sturdy enough to hold a light cloak so this might find its way into my LARP kit at some point, too.
Last but not least I picked up two more old linen sheets – you can never have enough of those, either. I like them as material for LARP things, either white or to dye.
The longsleeve is the only thing I picked up in Marburg this month at the TSDTR. As mentioned I can’t get past stripes and the colours work well with the rest of my wardrobe. I also don’t own enough longsleeves.
Now I’m off to watch some Game of Thrones with Scoundrel – we’re doing a re-run catch-up thing. Have you had any good finds lately? Let me know in the comments!
