Welcome back fellow thrifters and collectors! I hope your thrifting adventures have been more plentiful than mine. The thrifts seem to have been wiped out of a lot of goodies so I've resorted to hunting in Antique malls. Sometimes you can find hidden gems so you must never count them out.
This first piece I picked up because I liked the look of it and thought it would be a good decorator piece. It was also on sale at a local antique mall. I knew it was a vintage spin top but what I didn't know is that it is a Folk Japanese spin top likely dating to the 1950's. I've seen it described as a Sasebo Goma Koma fighting wood top. It's a hefty piece with loads of charm.
This next piece was my lonely yield from my usually fruitful estate sale company. I am not complaining though because I have the lone teak tray that this can go with. It was designed by Vivianna Torun for Dansk. The condition wasn't great but I conditioned the wooden part of the handle with a food-safe conditioner and now its good to go.
Here is the piece it matches. I love the subtle detail on the tray. These will be in the shop soon.
Lookie loo, I found another one of these Marimekko bags that were done for the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade. I have a little giveaway in mind for when I hit 100 followers and this may just be one of the items! It'll probably be a while before I hit 100 though...
Lastly, I couldn't resist this little family of ducks. They strongly resemble the Hans Bolling family of ducks except that these are made of Japanese Cedar, have glass or plastic eyes and are much smaller! They are really cute though and are already in the shop.
Have a great weekend and be sure to share your goodies at Selena's and Sophie's!
