It's Nuts How Much Cool Stuff Is Abandoned At The Thrift Stores! Status: Go Get It Folks...PLEASE!
I love Starbursts but I've never warmed up to this pattern, Star Glow. The gold just doesn't do anything for me. Good thing, like I need Another pattern to collect. Still, that is a pretty good deal.
The stuff above was all at the Value Village on Lindbergh Blvd. I think i might have
had the Airport toy thing as a child. I'm strangely drawn to it! The typewriter is
pretty cool to, it looks sorta angry.
These fine examples were all found at the Salvation Army in the Grandview Plaza
here in Florissant. That tall skinny china cabinet is pretty cool, no? That will be
gone tout suite. The other china cab. looks like it might be a Broyhill piece but I
didn't see a stamp. It's a two piece so it'll be easy to transport. I'm not sure that the
'40s bedroom set is available. I didn't see a price tag on it so it might be sold.
This was at the Goodwill on Lindbergh near the Value Village. It's not
available...well not from them anymore. This sofa followed me home. It wasn't even
Available when I looked around. It was put out just as I was finishing up my
reconnaissance of the joint. It was for sale all of 2 or 3 minutes! I've got some
clean up to do but this baby is genuine 1969 leather Thayer Coggin! I think it
might be a Milo Baughman design. I might be keeping it....I might be selling it,
haven't yet decided! Either way, there will be a posting dedicated to it soon
