Road Trip

Over the Labor Day weekend I took a little road trip.  My destination was a family event, however, my route was determined by the semi-annual 50% off sale at this national consignment chain.  I visited three, in two states, during a four hour time period.  You ask how I find that stuff?  THAT is how.  All in all a good day except when a staff member at the last one absconded with my basket full of stuff thinking it was abandoned!  (Dude, I was just trying to look through the dresses with two hands!)   A helpful manager hooked me up with a miracle worker employee who found it out back, ready to be emptied.  You might think I am overreacting, but, if you know what a 1970's DVF Wrap is, you know I am NOT!  (If you do not know what that is, look for my post tomorrow).  Along the route I spied this drive-in diner, which, according to a sign out front is under renovations to reopen.  I hope the food is good, but, being the visual person that I am, I sincerely hope they keep that sign!
A little later in my trip, I stopped by to visit the girls at Salvage Chic in Pembroke, Massachusetts.  In the spirit of gratefulness for the blog post from uber-style-maven Eyeliah at Style Symmetry, I wish to "play it forward" and post a few pics from the Salvage Chic shop.
Seeing this vintage fridge chock-a-full with vintage goodies is reason alone to make the trip! 

Now, you might be saying to yourself "Why is she posting all these pics of tantalizing vintage goodness?  I live halfway across the country and this is doing nothing but make me drool uselessly all over my keyboard."  Well, I have good news!  Christine and Claudia, proprietors of Salvage Chic, heros of the hunt, divas of dumpster-diving and masters of merchandising each have their own Etsy shops full of vintage-y goodness! 
You can find them here at Salvage Chic Antiques and here at 23 Burton Avenue
Oh, and you really should check out the wicked pen (or keyboard, I suppose) of the shop's blog.  It is guaranteed to have you LOL and ROFL and any other "L"s you can think of!
