Anyway, I did manage to get sucked into the vortex of 50% off thrifting and emerged with a ton of stuff. Most of it is still unphotographed, but I wanted to share a few favorite pieces today.
I rarely find Japanese Lustreware when thrifting -- it's so delicate that I don't think much of it survives the thrift store jungle -- but I found several pieces on Saturday. I'm guessing someone offloaded a collection (?).
How pretty is this little pitcher? I love the irridescent green trim, especially with the black outline. It would look fabulous with my jadeite dishes. (Must not keep! Must not keep!)
This serving bowl is so pretty, too. It's very delicate. Again -- it's hard to capture the irridescent quality of lustreware in photos sometimes, but it's so gorgeous in person!
Finally, these teacups and saucers just blew me away!
I love the super deco, geometric design.
The cups are so thin you can see through them. I definitely held my breath when the cashier was wrapping them up!
That's all for today...check back on Thursday to see my epic weekend Craigslist score for the living room!
