Just Some More Random Smalls From Around The Way And Even A Pair Of The Girlfriends Starburst Salt And Pepper Shakers. She Won't Be Giving Up Those Any Time Soon But The Starburst Bud Vase And The Surfer Girl Tiki Mug Will Soon Be Tagged Up For The Booth. Status: Smalls.
The lack of larger items for the time being is perhaps a blessing in disguise. I really don't have room for anything but the most special finds right now, and my motto of striking while the iron is hot keeps me from passing on a lot of good stuff...so the joint is packed at the moment.
So right now, finding smalls is a good way to burn off that need to hunt. This Orchids Of Hawaii tiki
mug was found at the closest Goodwill to our home not long ago. The funny thing is that I forgot all
about it. It's been sitting in a bag near my desk for weeks! I almost left it behind because of a little
chip on the rim, but it's not a bad chip and it's such an unusual tiki mug. I know I don't already have
one like it and I don't know that I've ever seen one before.
This bud vase came from the same thrift adventure. I love these starburst designs. I've got another
pair in blue around here somewhere. This single piece will get tagged up along with the tiki mug.
Sadly, the smalls haven't really been moving at either of the booths. Thankfully, shifting just a couple
large items each month makes the rent and then some, otherwise I'd be closing up shop!
The Girlfriend picked these out while we were on the 127 Corridor road trip. They were covered in
some kind of nasty gummy sticky stuff. I got it all off with some Goof Off and they are pretty much
perfect. Aren't those the cutest little starbursts you ever did see?! I gotta wonder if there is a whole
dinnerware pattern out there like this. I gotta get busy and put up some more display shelves for her
collection before she loses patience with me!
