I Finally Got A Nesting Sugar / Creamer Set by Russel Wright. Took a Little While But They Were Worth The Wait. Status: Like the Psychedelic Furs Said - Pretty In Pink
You might remember from my trip to New Orleans last October that I found a Russel Wright sugar bowl but no creamer. I made a trip down to China Finders on Cherokee street to see if I might be able to find a creamer to go with it, to no avail. The place ain't cheap but they usually have what you need or can get it.
Luckily, I have more patience than money. I'm not a gotta have it now kinda guy. I've wanted an
Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman for a very very long time. I may have something that I will be
happy with until it shows up (don't worry, you'll get to see it soon enough!), but I've been OK
with waiting. I guess the "getting" means more to me when I do the getting at the right price!
Finding these at the Brick Street Antique Gallery meant getting them at the right price. I was
happy to pay full price too. I'm getting better at Haggling and asking for a better price even
though it still leaves a bad taste in my mouth. When I do ask, I pretty much only do so when I'm
buying multiple items. I'm told by most everybody that it's expected. I guess since I buy mostly
from thrift stores the idea seems ridiculous. Could you imagine haggling at a thrift store?
It's hard to tell by the pics but I assure you, these are pink! I don't know why my camera makes
pink look white in my pics. I think maybe I need to put something white in my pics when shooting
something pink. ::shrugg:: This is such a great and inspired design. After first seeing it I
thought, "Well, duh...why aren't all sugar and creamer sets meant to nest like this?!" It's an
obvious design...one that just makes sense! Leave it to Russel and Mary Wright. They wrote
the book! The guide to easier living.
