found in thrift store

7

Okay so here’s the lowdown. I found 4 sets of medium format negatives while I was thrift shop hunting a few weeks ago. They were sitting in a box of old vintage photographs in these plastic sleeves, and from what I could tell, they had been taken sometime in the 50’s. So obviously I brought them home, and today finally had them scanned in, and holy wow they are beautiful!!

NOW this is where I need the Internet’s help. I would absolutely love to find the women in these photographs/the photographer who took them. The only info I have is that the negatives were found in a thrift store on Hull St in Richmond, VA. They are medium format, and judging by the style of dress, made in 1940-1950. The owner of the thrift store had no idea where they came from. I’m posting the best/clearest scans of the images, so if y'all could reblog the shit out of this, I’m hoping we can find the owners of these amazing images.

I found the most amazing thing at a thrift store today

This guy!  He was only 59 cents which was so worth finding out what exactly it was

He looks like a new friend to me

more potential new friends!

!!!!!!

he came with this package I wasn’t sure what to expect

I definitely didn’t expect 2 of the tiniest glowsticks

tiny glowsticks for a tiny rave

so I figured out you’re supposed to put the glowsticks inside him

cute friend

best friend

I love Sunbeam! She was the first G1 pony I ever found at a thrift store; at the bottom of a plastic bin full of toys. I was so thrilled to find her, even though she was well loved! My Sunbeam has the letters “APL” written in pink highlighter on her shoulder, and her yellow streaks and glittery cutie mark have almost completely faded away. She’s the grandma of my herd, and one of my favorites!

Thrift Store Blessings

That moment when you’ve been searching to buy an army camouflage jacket and after a month of searching, God blesses you with one.

A black business was selling one for $70 because it was going to be customized. Ebay and Etsy were selling some between $25 - $40. But after going to four different thrift stores, I found mine for $5!

Before I went to fourth and final thrift store, I literally prayed before entering. Then I looked to my left and my beautiful jacket was right there, like it was waiting for my arrival. To top it all off, it literally fits like a glove.

“I stopped shopping retail years ago, so thrift stores, flea markets, and garage sales have largely shaped my personal style. I like for my looks to always have a playful twist, for them to be on the verge of ridiculous and costumey, but not quite there. I love dressing monochromatically and as of late cannot stop wearing all red. Here I’m wearing a thrifted kilt-like skirt paired with vintage booties I got at a vintage expo in LA, a faux-fur trim coat I found years ago at a thrift store in San Diego, and of course, my matching red wool hat and red sunglasses.”

Notes I Found in the Thrift Store Dressing Room

             Do not try on more than six items at once
             ^ but you can buy as many as you want
       
No one can catch you in here
       
             Check your pockets
              ^ I found a heart in the breast pocket of a wool sweater
                                                             
                         No one is looking at you
             
    There is a door to Narnia in isle 3
     ^ this is true, I live there
     ^ there is also one in your apartment,
                               you just have to find it
                                                                                     
                                                                           You look fine
       
            Please don’t fear your own reflection
                           
      I found a coat made of unicorn fur
      ^ maybe that’s where they all went
       
If it has a stain don’t buy it
         ^ this rule does not apply to people
                               
                         You can’t fill your empty spot with new clothes
                          ^ watch me
                                                                     
                      Love is all you need
                            ^ this is a dirty lie
   
   Help, I broke my heart
   ^ tie it back together with a scarf from the back row
   ^ I tried this, it works

Stop sucking in, you don’t need to be smaller
                         
Not even god can help you now
^ you are your own god
