I didn't do much thrifting this week, since I was completely occupied with finishing up my living room makeover for the big One Room Challenge reveal this Thursday. I stumbled into one Goodwill on Saturday, forgetting that it was the first Saturday of the month and thus 50% off day. I should have probably run for my life, but instead I stuck it out and picked up a few things:
A set of seven mint condition Cera rocks glasses in a geometric gold and silver pattern. They kind of look like interlocking iron bars. I need to research the pattern, but thought they had a cool retro/industrial look.
And a couple of brass pieces -- a pretty, very HEAVY Art Nouveau style vase and one of my faves, a faux bamboo-railed brass tray. These are great sellers for me!
Finally, here's a find from about a month ago. I spotted this signed (undecipherable) and dated (1971) watercolor at a secondhand shop and wanted it for my home, but balked at the $45.00 price tag (because...yes...I am cheap). I then couldn't stop thinking about it - a sure sign that I made a mistake and should have pulled the trigger - and was SURE it would be gone by the time I made it back to the store two weeks later. Amazingly, it was still there, and marked down to $12!!! Score!
Isn't it cool? It totally looks like an abstract from far away. I love the simplicity of it.
Be sure to stop by on Thursday to see it hanging in my new living room for the big One Room Challenge living room reveal!
Linking up with these friends to check out everyone else's vintage finds!
