Someone really needs to keep me out of my favourite thrift shop.
For some reason I just decided to go in today and have a browse....here's some of what caught my eyes:
|I thought this clutch was kinda cool. Has a Native kinda feel.|
I think it was about $4.99
|I really loved this lamp. |
I was drawn to the mustard yellow colour and it had a sorta cracked
like finish in the paint (not in the texture). Hard to walk away from.
|This really cool brass thingy...I love the bamboo feel and would use it for magazines.|
I kind of want to go back and get it. It needs a good shining with brass polish but for $12.99 not bad.
|They had some unopened vintage wall paper. Really fun with this huge floral print.|
On a single wall or foyer I think this would be fun. It was less than $2 for the roll.
|Sticking with the retro theme I spotted these 2 needlepoint art pieces.|
Not for me but they could work in the right space. I think they were $3.99 each.
|I realize it's hard to tell the scale in this picture but they are pretty big - about 2 feet tall.|
They aren't that cheap thin glass - these are really heavy and solid. One has a slightly blue green tint, one has a grid pattern, the other is plain. For $5.99 each I KNOW they are a steal. I've seen them used in enough design photos to know that they look incredibly chic filled with branches or left empty as a bit of a statement. Can't wait to unpack them in...oh a year and a half.
Totally forgot to mention I also picked up a white ceramic snail vase (I'll take a picture later) which reminds me of my monkey ceramic vase...same kinda feel. Plus it was $1.99. And, well...you know...I just couldn't leave it.
I also got a little black velvet pouch thingy that I figure I can use to hold some makeup or something...it's small, black plush velvet...I just had to have it. I'll find some use for it. And for 69 cents it was a no brainer.
