I wasn't planning on going thrifting last weekend. But on Friday night, I decided it would be a fun distraction from the heat wave that's been rolling across the US. Plus, I don't have air conditioning, so anything to get out of the heat and in to cooler air is awesome.
Well, I am glad I went shopping because I found a lot of great items. The thrift gods were definitely watching out for me! (which, of course, means my next few thrifting trips will be busts.)
This blanket with southwestern graphic pattern was calling my name. And I love this children's bed sheet with animal illustrations. It almost looks like it could be Marimekko. And it's not IKEA. Does anyone have any info they could share?
I've started collecting wooden mid-century candle holders. I've been looking for a pair like the ones above for some time. And the mod black granny glasses I couldn't pass up.
I love vintage embroidery so when I saw the Native American inspired piece above I grabbed it immediately. You usually only see floral patterns in vintage embroidery so this piece is unique. There is no explanation on the back so I'm curious what this pattern means.
And here is the best find of the day... and maybe even the entire year... two Cathrineholm pots! Major score! When I saw the larger pot I gasped, grabbed my pearls like a 1950s housewife, and ran down the shopping aisle. Everybody looked at me. I couldn't believe it. When I rounded the corner and started going down the next aisle I spotted the smaller piece which seemed too good to be true.
There were other items I found but these were the best of the bunch. What have all of you found recently?
