Random Thrift Store Pics. Got Sidetracked Trying To Get My Business Done Yesterday. Status: Crappy Camera Phone Pics...Sorry.
I had to get up a little early yesterday and try to get some "real life" stuff done but was thwarted by a broke machine where I needed to get my business done. Luckily there are a couple thrift stores RIGHT THERE! I didn't actually buy anything there but I did see some interesting things, like this overnight bag which I'm inexplicably smitten with. I think it's just the cool vinyl. I hope it's just the cool vinyl.
Also in cool vinyl: this fab two piece davenport sofa. It's too bad that some of the piping on the
far seat cushion was busted up. This looked to me to have obviously been reupholstered.
Could you imagine sitting on this heavily textured black vinyl sofa in the middle of summer in
shorts! You'd look like you have a horrible skin condition!
There were a couple interesting lighting options available. The outside fixture is a little too '70s
mod for me with the smoked glass ball and all, plus we don't really have that kind of outside
fixture on the Lily Pad. I almost brought the other fixture home. I'm sure that the wood would
look great with a little teak oil and some Feed-N-Wax.
Nice little planter and a bud vase. Don't need 'em. The retro china cabinet was already sold.
Nice! Glad somebody recognizes cool retro design and saved this from the landfill. That's not
all that had a sold sticker on it though.
This nice compact danish style stereo cabinet had been snatched up as well. Notice that there
are side speakers that swing out (and are removable!). The wood was stupid dry and had
some water spots but I know this could look great with a little rub down. Plus, someone has
already replaced the turntable with a more contemporary unit. Who knows if it works, once
I spotted the sold tag I lost interest!
