I didn't do much thrifting this week; just picked up a couple things on the way to other places. (I can't resist a thrift store -- especially an "unknown" one -- when I come across one!) Here's what I picked up:
This serving tray is made from some kind of heavy plastic. It's hard to decipher the colors from this photo, but the background is a brownish black, and the streaks are tones of gold, metallic green, and brown. It's marked on the back with a sticker indicating it was made in Japan for Woolworth's, NYC. Circa 50s or 60s, I would say.
This is just a fun little solid brass trinket dish. It needs to be cleaned up a bit, but I thought it was pretty. It's also the perfect size for a wine coaster.
I've been looking for a set of these dishes forever! They are by Belmar of California. I love the aqua color--so retro. Found these in a Salvation Army next to the Christmas decorations--hmm.
This brass pedestal dish (soap dish?) is deceiving...it weighs about six pounds! I've been diligently scrubbing decades of tarnish and oxidation from it for days, and still have a way to go, but I think it's charming.
Finally, a little lucite fix! This trio of brass candlesticks with lucite columns were in great shape. It's hard to tell in the photo, but the lucite has an etched leaf design.
And there you have my few finds for this week! I hope you all have a spectacular week of thrifting; I'll be thinking about those of you in the path of Sandy this week!
I'm sharing my finds at these fun parties...check them out!
