one of the most intriguing things about thrifting, to me, is knowing that i find one-of-a-kind treasures that existed many times over at some point in time. i often ponder how unique my finds actually are - i cheat and look them up on ebay and find that there are more than one of what i found out there! it truely amazes me that somewhere out there, someone, or possibly more than one, owns a copy of these thrifted finds of mine!
does someone out there have this vintage milk glass spice jar set with cute little pink metal tops that sits in my kitchen, sitting in their kitchen?
does someone have a yard or two of my most prized vintage fancy chickens fabric that's stashed among other piles of uncut fiber in my sewing room, in a pile in their sewing room?
and to think that someone else in the world could be looting the same exact thing that i found yesterday in a thrift in philadelphia - it is unbelievably bizarre! what are the chances of that happening? my answer would be slim to none, but a few times in my thrift career i have found something twice!
has this ever happened to you?
