sat on a mountain of vintage happiness

i had the most amazing thrifting experience yesterday. one of my good friends lives in long beach and knows alot of good vintage places around her place. so we went walking down one street trying to find some good deals. and she mentions that every last saturday some shop has a pile sale every last saturday of the month. lo and behold, it was the last saturday of september! it was La Bomba in downtown long beach. we walked to the back of the store where they keep this sacred pile and i find myself staring at 18ft wide 11ft high pile of vintage treasures! so the three of us climbed to the top of it, made ourselves comfortable, and dug through that beautiful mess for a good hour. unfortunately we didn't have enough time and endurance to stay up on there, it was getting way too warm by the way. by i walked away so proud of my bargains: two dresses and a skirt, all for TEN DOLLARS. ahh so happy after that, lovely day.

this was the pile, but this was not me.
