Hello thrift lovers everywhere! I had a wonderful mother's day with my son last Sunday, we went out to brunch, then the movies (Dark Shadows, really good!) and we even had time to stop at an estate sale! My son and my husband gifted me a new camera, I am elated! I had been working with a small point and shoot camera since February, when I lost my SLR.
I tried to slow my thrift-breaks this week as I have a lot of inventory to list. I want to list most of my finds before going on vacation. I will be in Colombia for six weeks and my husband will be in charge of shipping all the sales while I am away. I won't be thrifting, but I will try to keep up with treasuries, blog posts, etc. Here are some of my finds.
A beautiful ice bucket made of textured glass. It is marked Hoya stainless steel. I found a similar item that is still produced, slight differences on the vintage model are the brown pivots to the handle as well as a faux leather strap around the top of the handle. This was purchased at an estate sale.
At the same estate sale I found three of the nice Dansk paperweights. I have never found them before in the wild, so I am a happy thrifter. I will list them together.
I always pick retro barware as it does really well in the store. I found these at a garage sale in the area, I usually don't find much for the store at garage sales, but once in a while there is something worth driving all over town. This is a set of six glasses in very good vintage condition.
I have tried to give you a scale reference with the small bird posing next to the darling and large Dala horse. This is the largest I have seen at 10" high. I saw it on the preview pictures of an estate sale, and I had to have it! I might get it together with all the other ones I have found before and sell them as a big family. I think they will look great displayed as a group.
My second Flora bowl, this was a thrift store find! I was surprised to find it, as it seems that my local GW is being picked all the time. I guess I will just have to go often to try and outsmart my competition, right?
And these? Can you believe these? I think I am in love. Only a pair found at the same estate sale as the horse. Blenko crackle amberina dimpled tumblers if you were wondering what they are. They feel so nice and heavy on the hand, and look at them! They are gorgeous! I am going to have a hard time listing them.
