Sunday Was TRULY A Day Of Rest For Mr. Modtomic. Well, Mostly. I Just Can't Stop Myself From Checking The Traps! Status: Issues, I know.
Yup, check that bad boy out. A JenYouWine rewards card for thrift shopping! So the question is...is that amazing...or just sad? Geez, I can't decide! Pshhh...what am I thinking, It's awesome. And I can't even remember what the Reward is!
Oh well, I'll ask again next time I'm at a St. Vincents thrift store. I'm sure it won't be long.
Like I said, even on a day after loading and unloading two wagon loads of stuff for the parking
lot sale I still went to the two local thrifts stores that are open on Sunday here in North County.
It wasn't an epic haul day by any means. Just an average day with some good stuff. The
Girlfreind actually found this lamp. She's pretty good at whipping through and finding stuff like
this pretty quickly. It's a great lamp but it didn't come with that shade and it certainly needs
a new cord! All easy fixes.
I also found a nice Kromex aluminum Art Deco ice bucket. I've already got one just like it for
the bar but I don't got one for the antique mall booth. How can I possibly make an acceptable
Greyhound at the booth if don't have an Art Deco ice bucket there?
Aaaannnd...I got a great little lamp shade! Unfortunately it's a bit to short for the lamp the
Girlfriend found. Maybe if I find a shorter harp. It's actually off a lamp that would have a bowl
around the bulb. Note the dummy brass finial. It's kinda cool, no? It's just a little something
extra. Too bad none of this stuff came from a St. Vincents. I'd be well on my way to getting
that card filled up.
