Thrift Finds: Celebrating 1,000 sales

Hello vintage lovers,

I am a happy store owner this week. My MidModMom store just reached a fabulous milestone: 1,000 sales! It has been an amazing couple of years! Thank you to all my supporters and followers. You are the best!

To celebrate I went on a short road trip to an area I rarely visit and I did some Saturday garage sale and thrift store rounds. It was a great mini-celebration filled with fun finds. 


Let's start with the glass. All Blenko glass, all gorgeous. My first Winslow Anderson fish in a beautiful chartreuse color, water bottle in a golden clear yellow, and a puzzle piece vase by Hank Adams. Whimsical collection, don't you think?


A very lovely Romanze Continental tea set designed by Born Wiinblad for Rosenthal Studio Linie. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the set at the "fancy" side of the thrift store.


This Maurice Ascalon for Pal Bell of Israel snail ashtray has been on my things to thrift wish list for a while. It will be listed in the store soon.


Other finds include a small flora bowl with the old nuutajarvi sticker, Eva Zeisel Fantasy salt and pepper shakers for Hallcraft, and Wiinblad March wall plaque for Nymolle.


My favorite "find" of the week, a Bennington Potters lion bank. I am thinking he will hang around for a while. It is a short term keeper!

This is it for today. I am posting a day earlier as I am going to have a relaxed mother's day with my boy tomorrow. Happy day to all mothers out there.


If you would like more information on any of my finds you can always contact me. I give discounted prices to my blog readers.

  2. Congratulations on your sales milestone! Of all the Etsy sellers I know, you set the highest standard for quality merchandise...and it doesn't hurt that you have an amazing eye for good pieces. I love your Blenko fish. We had one just like it in honey, and while that isn't one of my favorite colors, I still hated to see it go.
