It's another installment of "What I Didn't Buy." You all seemed to really like the last time I wrote about everything I didn't buy while thrifting. So, I thought I'd do it again. Enjoy...
I am not sure these two chairs were vintage or just retro. The blue one looks vintage because of the wear and style of the legs/base. The orange one looks more like IKEA. But they were both made by some company in Nashville... I didn't recognize the name.
These mirrors with yellow flower patterns were pretty cool. But they aren't exactly my style and I don't want to worry about shipping them if I sold them in the shop. And that black velvet painting was too creepy not to take a photo.
I do want a new mid-century desk, but this one wasn't going to cut it. I like the side table but this one is too much of a look. And that Danish modern inspired folding chair actually made it in to my cart and is now sitting in my living room. Hey, it was half off day and I couldn't resist for only $5.
The 1980s are back so anything from that era gets my attention. I loved the "Kid-Corder" but it was in rough shape. And does anyone still use cassette tapes, even in an ironic hipster way? I have a similar "Jetbag" but this one was in poor condition. Too bad because it was pretty cool. In my dreams I find one in great shape in gray or black.
Once again... furniture that's awesome but that I didn't want to buy because 1) it needs work and 2) extra furniture right now isn't the best idea for me. That silver side table is too cool, though.
What have you found recently that you didn't buy?
