Did you have a good Thanksgiving? We did! It was our first celebration by ourselves. We usually drive up to northern California to celebrate with my American family (from my exchange student year), but we just adopted a dog and I couldn't bring myself to leave her at a pet hotel. We managed to replicate the meal at home with a small turkey, all the side dishes, and two pies! It was different but nice.
My best friend happened to be in town for the first part of the week, and one day I dragged her to the thrift store and we found a lot of ceramics.

|A trio of bud vases made by the same potter, signed Virginia Smith. These are tiny.|
Then all the craziness of the holiday began, all the cooking plus work, etc and I had no time to thrift. So today I decided to stop by the flea market before I posted my meager finds for the week here.
I was surprised to do my first round of the place with not a single find to show for it. Everything was expensive and the dealers were in no mood to negotiate. I think that this is their best market of the year, so everyone wants to make good money. I guess I can understand…
I was not going to leave empty handed, so another round of the market was in order. I am happy to report that I did much better the second time around.
|A large platter from Metlox Poppytrail California Mobile. I love this line! One small chip to the rim though.|
|A sweet wooden figurine made in Sweden.|
|A small Dala horse. Great for holiday decoration.|
|My best find of the day! A P.S. Heggen teak wastebasket.|
A good week after all. If you are interested in any of my finds, do not hesitate to contact me with your questions. I offer discounted prices to my blog readers! And talking about discounted prices, my yearly sale is going on now with 20% off regular prices on everything in the store. Ends tomorrow at midnight.
A reminder that the Taste Setters Opulent Modernism sale starts tonight at 6PM PST. This sale is my favorite to date!
