I embarked on the most important adventure of the week: thrifting and vintage hunting. During the weeks leading up to the trip, I carefully researched promising spots via the internet. And I have not been disappointed with the treasures I have found thus far! One of my favorite places to visit is The Treasure Mart, located in the Kerrytown District of Ann Arbor. It is full of kitschy knick-knacks, fancy hats, and 1950s purses. Matty found a lovely Pendleton wool blanket for our summer camping trips and I purchased a 1970s straw travel bag (for only $6.00). I have no idea how I am going to get any of these beautiful things back to San Francisco, but I am enjoying all of the antique marts in the area. 

When I saw this 1960s lace cropped top at The Getup, I thought of Ashley. I promised some lovely ladies back in San Francisco that I would keep them in mind while shopping. But then I tried on the dreamy top and knew that I couldn't part with it. The cut, the buttons in the back, and its neckline is so versatile for the summer. I paired it with a newly thrifted polka dot skirt and my vintage elephant necklace. I am sure this little lace number will be making a frequent appearance in my summer wardrobe!

jessie :

i lovee treasure mart, it's my favorite. welcome to ann arbor girl!

Liz :

You should ship all of your extra things back - I do that if I buy heavy things like fabric when I'm on a trip, it's much cheaper than paying for an extra bag on the plane. If you use something like "Parcel Post" with USPS it is very affordable, and it will take a while to arrive (9-10 days) but if you send it early it may be there when you get home! I hope you're having a blast!

Steffys Pros and Cons :

MOUSEVOX VINTAGE :

I think Treasure Mart has to be one of the best names for a shop I've ever heard. As for getting your lovely new treasures back to The Bay, invest in a flat folding suitcase (like the ones business men carry their suits in). I found mine for $10 at a thrift store. I was able to bring 30 pieces from California back to Nashville with me after my last visit. The cost of checking a bag is far less expensive then shipping it to yourself.

Temporary:Secretary :

Gorgeous house - so pretty. What a dream house!
You look beautiful and this outfit is lovely! xxx
