My original thoughts on the weekend: "I have so much inventory for the shop that I have yet to list. I have so many to-be-made-over things that I've thrifted for myself. It's supposed to be cold and rainy. I'll stay home, work on projects, listen to music, get lots accomplished...."
What actually went down: "I do need to to take a package to the post office. Might as well swing by that cute junk store in Carmel [suburb north of the city...nowhere near the post office] since they're only open Saturdays." Cut to two hours later, as the shop owner has to help me carry the boxes of stuff I purchased to my car.
Here are just a couple of the purchases that I've managed to clean up and photograph so far:
A set of Iittala Ultima Thule candlesticks....
Four perfect peach lustre cups to go with the egg nog bowl from a few weeks ago...
Eight Culver rocks glasses with gold bands and a faux-tortoise treatment...
This art deco looking jeweled snake letter holder. I seriously love this piece.
Remember my bookend collection? Yep...added these guys to it. They're onyx (I think) and alabaster (I think). I'm not good at identifying natural stone - obviously.
A set of four etched pump decanters with chrome tops and a lucite caddy tray...
And finally, a glam raised brass dish with a brass and lucite "crystal" base.
There you have it. The product of my little "detour" from the post office. Okay - part of the product. The rest is still in boxes in my trunk. :)
I hope you all had lots of thrifting luck this week! I can't wait to see.
