This has been a good week folks! If you hadn't heard, I opened up my Etsy shop. It was long overdue. I also had my very first sale this week. It was quite exciting and invigorating. The sale happened on Good Friday no less so a Good Friday it was.
I have to admit that my thrift hunger is insatiable! I find one or two things that are worthwhile but I am hungry for more. To use a term from Leilani, I am a thriftaholic.
My first find of the week is this taper candle holder. I bought it for research purposes because it was still in the box. This mystery flower taper holder, that is often attributed to dansk but has its differences, now has a known manufacturer. It is La Cresta out of La Crescenta, CA. The box reads that it is rust proof and can be "immersed in water" or "for table top".
Here is a comparison of a Dansk spider taper holder and the La Cresta flower taper holder. See the differences?
After going to several thrifts and coming out empty handed, I came across these two sets of Vignelli Glass Bakeware. The large one is #16 and the smaller one is #18. I am not sure how the numbers work because I've seen similar sizes with very different numbers. The large one measure 9-3/4" (outer diameter ) X 5-1/2" (total height). The smaller one is 8-1/4" (outer diameter) X 5" (total height).
This little guy was too cute to pass up. It looked well made and so I was curious. I could tell that it was signed but I couldn't make it out at the thrift. They always put stickers right over the mark and I always feel guilty peeling the sticker to see it. Once out of the store I took off the sticker and was happy to see that it is a Martz piece for Marshall Studios. It is a wee little one measuring in at 4 inches. It can be seen here on page 6. It is the M80 bottle in gloss white.
Lastly, look who it is! Another little feeder for people. This one is different than the previous ones I've found. It is about the size of the small one but in the style on the large one. It's filled with some Easter candy and on that note, I hope you all have a Happy Easter!
I'll be linking up with the lovely ladies, Selena and Sophie.
