I Didn't Bring MUCH Home With Me This Year From Our Road Trip Vacation...Just A Few Smalls That I Managed To Find Here And There. Status: Road Trip Thrifty Finds!
I didn't put much energy into filling the wagon with thrifted finds this vacation. It was time a break. I even put the blog on re-runs! But I'm back at it and I'll be sharing the couple of goodies I picked while exploring as well as some of the places we found along the way.
I found this lamp base at a small antique mall type shop somewhere in South Carolina. It was
ridiculously cheap because the plug end is missing and it had no shade. But it's such a great lamp
that I had to have it anyway. After I get a new plug end installed I'll drop it off at The Green Shag,
probably with the shade shown here. I'm sure it'll get snatched up quick.
I picked up five of these (almost left one behind, odd numbers make me crazy) and while cleaning
them up I noticed one has a crack so I'm left with just the four. I've got a collection of matching
mugs started but only have three of those. I'm thinking these will join our daily use plates. They
already have lots of silverware marks as well as lots of life left in them. Gotta love that orange
I'm kind of at a loss as to where this teak and aluminum trivet came from. I think maybe I picked it
up from another small antique mall in SC. This too is headed to my booth at The Green Shag
Market. Maybe I'll get down there this coming weekend and give my booth space some much needed
love and attention. I'm sure it's looking a little stale after two solid weeks of disregard! Did anybody
go to the Green Shag Parking Lot Sale this year? I was out of town so I couldn't make it.
