A Couple Of Stops At The Local Florissant Thrift Stores Thursday Yielded Much. Status: Surprised Myself!
I wanted to just poke my head into the three local thrifts before heading to my antique mall space to drop of some items and get to work on putting up some shelves. I ended up finding good stuff at all three! I also ended up spending way too much time doing so.
There was just so much good stuff to sift through...I had to take my time. I scored pretty good at
each shop too. The Salvation Army had that great Kroehler bedroom set and I picked up some
pegboard shelving that I REALLY needed for the booth space.
I also picked up this great pair of Kerosene Lanterns. I know, they ain't vintage modern or
anything but as soon as I saw them I couldn't help but think they'd sell quickly at the antique mall!
I had to grab 'em up. They are now available in my booth space (Booth 44) at the Green Shag
Market Antique Mall. I'd have liked to have painted them satin black before making them available
but just didn't have time. If they are unsold when I get back from VayKay I'll probably pull 'em
and paint 'em.
This super fun Shag Rug Type Art was proffered by the Value Village thrift store and snatched
right up by me! The colors really sock ya right in the kisser don't they?! But what the heck is up
with that frame? The juxtaposition is almost as jarring as the pop of color it surrounds. This went
up on the Pegboard in the booth this afternoon, too.
I love these plant stands! But I've leaned that I have absolutely no use for them. I had another just
like this before and sold it to a lucky buyer in New Orleans a while back. This one will be getting
a new coat of pretty before being sold though. Other than the light surface rust and a slightly bent
bit here and there, this is in great shape. Nice and solid. I see these in antique malls all the time
with "NFS" tags on them. Doesn't that suck? I hate seeing those tags! I'll try to keep from ever
having anything in Booth 44 at the Green Shag Market with one of those lousy tags!
