Resale Shopping–My Favorite Way to Recycle!

I picked up this old (I think it is old) frame from one of my new favorite resale shops: Jen’s Resale in Brentwood. Just $19. Not only do they carry lots of shabby chic items, but also clothing, which is there on consignment. Sell last year’s pumps and use the money on a something for your home. Sweet deal. And visiting with Jennifer, one of the owners, was a delight–strong woman following her dreams!

The frames swivel so you can see the back of the pictures and they are the perfect size of a clothing pattern. And as luck, well not luck, I bought them on purpose, I have some vintage patterns that I have wanted to display.

Frame 1

How sweet is this. It is from 1948. I added a cardboard insert that matched the size of the frame.

Frame 2

Just large enough to stay in the frame.

Frame 3

How cool is that?! It will live on a shelf in my sewing studio one day. Vintage love 🙂
