UPDATE: Hey, I'm Susie! Thriftables was just a little ol' blog I started in 2012 about thrifting and DIY. When t
he domain thriftables.com got bought up from under me, I decided that I'd let the blog die. It's just a well; I never really updated it anymore anyway.
I will keep the most popular posts up. If you still want to be my buddy, please find me on Pinterest, Instagram, or Etsy. I'll probably start another blog or vintagey project someday soon. When I do, you'll hear about it there.

On a side note, if you find a pin or link that leads you back to thriftables.com, would you mind updating the link to point it back to thriftables.blogspot.com? I would appreciate it, and I'm sure the lost thrifter who stumbles across it will appreciate it, too.

1950s Time Capsule Home for Sale in South St. Louis

I'm a huge fan of mid-century brick homes, and if you haven't picked up on it yet, retro style in general. I love this inexpensive home in south St. Louis! It's the perfect mix of affordability, location, and retro charm. When I'm finally in the market to buy, I will be looking at homes exactly like this.

Please go see the rest of the listing (and more pics) here.

Note: This home is no longer available!


  1. What a great house. I'd be all over that one if it was here.

  2. Oh wow! That house is awesome! It hasn't been touched in 50 years, it's a giant time capsule. I've never seen so much tile in a bathroom...that would be a pain in the rear to clean.

    1. Yeah, it's amazing that these little '50s time capsules still exist, considering how many years it's been. I'd gladly be the one to clean that much tile!

  3. That is adorable! I would love it if I was in St. Louis. That kitchen is fabulous.


    1. Me too. Really makes me wanna move back!
