Hi everyone. Seeing a bit of a pickup on thrifting, though it’s still hit and miss. I’ve been trying to visit more stores during the week, and some alternate locations as well. I don’t find a ton more things, but it’s been fun to try out some different thrifts. Now if only gas prices would come down (or if I had a gas efficient car instead of the guzzler)…
At one of the newer thrifts, came across another Kyes of Pasadena tray. We’ve passed them up quite a bit in past because they’re usually damaged, but they seem to have a slight following so I’ve been keeping an eye out for them.
Interesting Fiesta glasses – these reminded me of some of the Georges Briard patterns on cookware, and also the Pyrex “Arches” pattern.
I’m not too familiar with Mastad of Norway. Have seen these pewter items around a few times but this was the first time we picked one up. It was at the end of a long thriftbreak with not much found so I was just happy to find anything slightly interesting.
We still find Taylor and Ng mugs every so often, but this is only the second recipe box we’ve found. The other one had the graphic printed right on the box, while this one has an attached ceramic tile.
Been on a dry spell for Dala horses – when they turn up we usually grab them if they’re cheap. It’s very mixed results as far as selling them goes, but I still can’t help myself.
I found this really cool Environmental Ceramics egg shaker at an estate sale off the beaten path. This one was a true thriftbreak find – I only knew about it because a fellow thriftbreak (Jessyca at Luola) had talked about it earlier. Not only that, but it ended up going to another thriftbreaker (Charlie over at Minor Thread ). Yay for thriftbreak!
Lastly, I came across this nice Cathrineholm bowl in the Strek pattern from the Cathedral series. While it’s not the more collectible Lotus pattern, finding any Cathrineholm is cause for celebration since it’s so tough to come across nowadays.
Did you find something cool at a thrift or flea market lately?
