Summer Blog Yard Sale?

July 14th, 2012

I was really glad that a rockabilly fan bought my Reebok oxfords immediately! I am also selling a lot of my other vintage stuff to those who might want to take it home. Take a peek below.

Steve Madden Gold Glitter Pumps High Heel Stilettos – Size 7.5 – Barely Used

Nautical Swimsuit with golden accents and gold metal ropes Size small. (EDIT: SOLD!)

This is one of my best-looking bathing suits. I absolutely adore nautical designs. I sold THE best looking suit I had, because it was just too problematically sexy for a family beach.  I think I want this in medium, so I am selling this.

Margolm Vintage Jumbo Clutch with Colorful Snake skin

I honestly do not have the patience to repair things, so I end up selling what I have that needs some patching up  instead. That’s what happened with my oxfords which I did buy brand new and wore out only once. This just needs some cosmetic work on one of the snake skin triangles.

Yves Saint Laurent purple clutch with mirror inside (EDIT: SOLD!)

I’ve never really used this. Clutches are not convenient to carry around. I need something to just hang on my shoulder or my arm, so I can forget that it’s there (could be good or bad). I have been carrying so many things with me, especially after getting married. I wonder what my purses will look like when I become a mom.

Rockabilly style pastel checkered bow sandals – size 7.5

Strawberry Leather Purse

I bought this, because it caught my eye immediately. I’ve never used it either.This definitely qualifies as a pretty-at-first-sight impulsive purchase.

15″ Madeline dressable plush by Barbara Bemelmans

Madeline was one of my favorite childhood characters. I have sold the smaller version of this doll. I also have a lot of Madeline things I might think about putting up online.

Elizabeth Arden makeup (mostly unused)

A few of these were given as a gift (thank you, Vanessa), but they just aren’t colors I really use.

Off Season promo DVD – brand new

Sherilyn Fenn fan?

Regina Porter semi-sheer vintage blouse with bow – size medium (EDIT: SOLD!)

I just realized this was too big for me, and I needed to get rid of it.

The Muppets Kermit the Frog T-Shirt - Girls’ Large

I also only used this out one time. I bought it right after seeing the new Muppets movie. I thought I could get away wearing a kid’s shirt in large, but it proved a little too tight on me. It’s obvious when you see Kermit’s face get a little wider than usual!

Bakers Gladiator Sandals Size 7 (EDIT: SOLD!)

Bought these second hand, and they only came half a size smaller than my feet. Of course, my feet ended up hurting after a day out in these. So if you are a size 7, you’ll most likely have a better experience in these shoes :)

That’s it for now! I will put up more things when I find more!

    Wow, these are some beautiful items. It feels good to clear some space in the closet, though.

    Everything looks so cute, if I wasn’t broke I would definitely buy the nautical swimsuit!

    Thanks! I tried not to raise the price too much, but it’s definitely the perfect nautical suit. I’ve been trying to find one like it, but this is a tad small on me.

    Yes it is good for your mental health to declutter too!
