Hey thrifty buds, I'm going to keep it short and sweet this week. I didn't find much this week but that's how it is, some weeks are good, some not so much. That's what makes the thrill of the hunt stronger for next week! Also, sometimes you just don't find the time to photograph some of your latest catches.
A find that I was really stoked about is this Raymor Capri piece designed by Michael Lax. It reminds me of one of my very first thrift hunts here in SoCal. I had just discovered by inclination towards MCM objects and found a divided dish in this same line. I stumbled upon it and heavily considered it even though it was less than $5. There was another thrifter eyeing me and secretly hoping that I would set it down. He was watching my every move but alas I brought it home. I did all kinds of searches for porcelain and walnut combos but didn't have much luck. It took me about a year to learn who it was designed by and it was by chance. I think I was doing research for something else. Fast forward a couple of years to my second piece from this line. I saw it at the thrift and paid a fair price for it, it certainly wasn't a giveaway but this is a line that is going to grace my home for years to come. I love white dishes and I love Black Walnut, bring the two together and I'm head over heels!
This little guy is missing a couple of pieces but I recognized the line right away. It is a Lagardo Tackett for Schmid sugar container. This originally had a rattan handle that looped around the little 'shrek' ears. It is also missing the little spoon but it was half off! It's awfully hard to find Lagardo Tackett goodies in my 'hood.
Did you have any good finds this week? Did any bring back memories?
