Brought Some Home...Left Some Behind...Spotted Some Thrifts Of TERROR!!! Status: Just Another Weekend!
After picking up the La Fonda Eames side table at the Ivey Selkirk auction I Still felt the need to hit a few thrift stores. I know. "Really?" Yep, really. I didn't clean up but I did find a couple neat things. Check it out!
Who could resist this lot? Me either. C'mon, I know I already have a ton of the Salem
Biscayne stuff but when you find a nice baking dish at the thrift store...you seize that baby!
A super cheap Tiki mug? I take that, thanks! And that little blue sugar bowl...well that, I
think, can go with a lot of different patterns, like Salem Biscayne, or North Star.
In other news...Need a matched set of retro living room tables on the cheap? The Salvation
Army (54 Grandview Plz Shp Ctr. Florissant, MO 63033-6105) can hook you up. These
were there when I left Saturday evening. Not too shabby a set. Yeah, there are some
bumps and bruises here and there but they gots style to spare, if you ain't too snobby!
Then there was this crazy sh*t. I think the orange stuffed thing is a...well...a stomach! Right?
Isn't that an orange furry lovable stomach? Freakish. And that ceramic piece...I'm guessing it's
a Budda head. What's the point of having a Budda head? There's no belly to rub! Whateves.
Ok, so maybe the stuffed thing was some doctor / medicine swag. I can accept that. Kinda
weird. The Robata Of Japan, that's a Budda head planter. What would be appropriate to
plant in the head of Budda? I can't think of anything.
