The Thrifts Were Good To Mr. Modtomic Last Weekend. I Found This Great Brass Candelabra And Plum Colored Art Glass Vase While Out And About. Status: Table Top Goods.
Wow, everything posted this last week (less the Wentzville flea posting) was found last weekend! And I even forgot to knock out some pics of a set of orange sherbert "Oven Proof" dining plates that I found at the same Goodwill from whence the Plum glass vase came.
It was a good weekend after all. The glass vase was a goodwill find while the brass candelabra was a West
County Savers snatch, the last thrift we shopped for the day. Do you have a general mental map that you
follow when checking your traps? I do and unfortunately it means that I forget to hit a few places from time
to time. Makes me wonder what I'm missing. Some day I hope to take part in the 127 Corridor 450+ mile
flea market and I just KNOW my "but what am I missing at the Next plot" anxieties will ramp up to level 12!
Lovely finds don't ya think? The candelabra reminds me a lot of the one I featured many moons ago and
currently have available in my booth at The Green Shag Market. Of course, since I publicly announced
that I don't collect art glass I've now got so much of it that it's ridiculous. I may need to start culling that
collection as well. It's just so darn pretty...and glass is such a miracle. Think about what life would be like
without glass for just a moment.
I'm gonna get a tag on that candelabra and get it over to the shop in St. Charles, if you're interested, then
I'm on vacation! It is time once again for the Girlfriend and I to take our Summer road trip. Not exactly sure
where we're going but it's time to get outa Dodge for a while. I'll probably post from the road a bit, but I'll
be boring you with some re-runs too. Surely you haven't seen ALL of them already! There's over a
Thousand to page through! Happy Summer Vacation!
