Vintage Window Shopping

Sunday I went to a little place in Bethany, Oklahoma called "The Rink" It is a HUGE Anitique mall/vintage store that used to be a hockey rink... but is now taken over by vintage/antique enthusiasts and the dreams of addicts like me. 

Since I have been working on purging things from my place though, it was SO HARD not to buy anything. But I made a pact with myself.........which I soon broke by purchasing two postcards and a vintage scarf. BUT HEY! I didn't lug home a piece of furniture so.. progress!

Anyway...Here are a few of the things I was drooling over but decided not to buy *tear. 
Sorry for the iPhone quality pics. I didn't bring my camera that day but then once I got there I decided I couldn't go without snapping a few low quality pics.

Awesome Mid Century Chair
Annddd The most painful find of the day. $45 perfect condition white leather Mid-Century Modern Chair. This thing is going to haunt my dreams. So cute. Chairs are my weakness.

You guys ever go thrifting and just... look? It was almost impossible for me. Find any good stuff? Let me live vicariously through your thrifting! :)

It is really hard for me just to look when I go shopping. I usually end up with a little something ;)

I wish I could visit the ice rink/antique mall!

I've never successfully gone and just looked! Especially places like junk/thrift/antique stores where everything is so cheap. I always come home with some sort of little trinket.
