Hello friends! I'll be sharing some past finds with you this week, since once again I didn't do much thrifting this week (yay me!). Don't be in awe of my willpower or anything, though, because it has more to do with my crazy schedule and the fact that spring appears, at long last, to have arrived. I've been super busy cleaning up the yard, spring cleaning the house, repainting the ugly living room. . .
So the thrifting has slowed waaaaay down the last few weeks, which is a good thing. I do, however, still have a couple of favorite recent finds to share!
Super-glam set of vintage barware with a [sort-of] Greek key pattern. Aren't they pretty? They seem to be unsigned and I haven't been able to figure out a maker. Anyone know?
This hand-painted bone china tray from Japan caught my eye at a local Goodwill a long time ago, but it was way overpriced. (Shocking.) For once my patience paid off, and I was able to snag it at the last 50% off sale.
And last but not least, two weeks ago I spotted a PS JONSBERG Vase by Hella Jongerius for IKEA at another Goodwill for $6.99! These have been in production by IKEA since 2005, and I've always wanted one but never picked one up. (To be honest, they're priced in the $40 range and I usually have so much other stuff on my IKEA lists that it kept getting "bumped.") On my last visit to IKEA I noticed with dismay that they were sold out and are apparently being discontinued, so I thought I'd lost my chance...but Goodwill came through again!
The black one was always my least favorite of the three colors that were (until recently) still in production, but now that I've got it home, I kind of like it.
Hard to believe it survived the Goodwill stock room without a chip!
I'm getting attached, can you tell?? :) I bought it with the intention of reselling it on eBay or something, but I may have to hang on to it for a while. Now if it had been the pink version, there would be no question it would be staying with me forever!
And those are my finds for this week. Did you find anything cool this week? Can wait to hear!
