I thrifted like mad this weekend - mostly at Goodwill since it was 50% off day. It was cr-a-z-y; worse than usual. I think people were coming out in droves to combat cabin fever or something, because I waited in line a full hour at every store I visited. I also saw two people almost end up in a fist-fight over a hanging rattan egg chair, and one of them was a 60-something woman. It was both horrifying and entertaining. (One's definition of "entertaining" broadens significantly after the first 45 minutes of standing in line...)
Here are just a few of my finds; I have lots more that I haven't photographed yet! You guys know how I love a theme...so I decided to photograph my "stone" finds first. I found an inordinate amount of alabaster/marble/stone items this week. They made for some heavy shopping bags, let me tell ya!
A cute little letter sorter with a marble and lucite base.
I've found these bookends before -- always in singles (*sigh*) -- but I loved this pink coloration of this one.
While not them most exciting find in the world, I thought this little marble-based brass pen holder would add a touch of glam to a desktop. And maybe help me keep track of my pen, which is perpetually missing...
I am so in love with this soapstone lion sculpture! I was devastated when I noticed the chip in his mane, but decided to bring him home anyway. I just couldn't leave him behind.
These guys were one of my favorite finds. Heavy marble eagle bookends. The lines are so elegant, aren't they? I can't quite figure out why the two bases are different.
Did you do any thrifting this week? This may be my last hurrah for a while, since we've got some scary winter weather heading our way. Good thing I have all the rest of my finds from this past weekend to keep me busy!
