I came home to pack orders, organize my new inventory and of course to try and get everything ready for tax season. I am also getting ready to pack all the orders that WILL come my way from my second Fab sale, which opens Monday the 14th at 7 pm ET.
I am never too busy to stop by my local GW for a thriftbreak. I found this beautiful Dorothy Thorpe Gold Band Chip and Dip Set last Tuesday. A great find because the band is in very good shape, because it was not taped together, and because it was marked 50% off. The gold band is more difficult to find than the silver band, and it is quite elegant in my opinion.
On Thursday I went to a local estate sale where I was happy to find this delicious Blenko 949 Indent Ball Vase designed by Winslow Anderson in 1950. It was covered with dust on a garage shelf. It looks beautiful with my other glass vases so I might keep it for a while.
I also found these cute Figgjo plates at the same sale. These belong to the Corsica series designed by the fabulous Turi Gramstad Oliver. They will be for sale in the store soon.
These wonderful wood sculptures are made by Henning of Norway. The big fisherman sculpture is large at 16" and it is already for sale on Ebay. The darling young fisherman is also listed on Ebay. I made a mistake when listing these and the shipping was very high when the listings started. I think I might have scared some possible customers because of my lack of attention! Oh well. The listings have been fixed though. Both sculptures and several small figurines were also found at the estate sale.
On my way back home I happened to stop at the GW again and there was more gold to be found! Six Georges Briard Glasses were waiting for me. I seem to find a lot of GB glassware, I guess it appealed to the Orange County housewives of the 1950s...
Did you notice how efficient I was this week? Most of my finds are already listed!!! Maybe 2013 will find me more organized. Did you find AND list something this week?
