Well enough about me, let's get on with the thrift share! This week I am sharing both old and new finds.
These beauties caught my eye because of the smoky color and the shape. I picked them up and I was sold. They feel fabulous in the hand. The glass is so delicate and there was a set of four. After some research and help from some twitter folks, these are confirmed to be Holmegaard glasses in the Copenhagen line.
I found these fun enamel plates at an estate sale. I probably paid too much for them but they were just too colorful and cheery to pass up! They'd be great for cereal.
This was the first time I came across a Stavangerflint item. I loved the sweet little illustration by Kari Nyquist. Any golf couples out there?
This diverse set is my thrift haul from this week. There is a little fold-out ruler, a dymo label maker that I've been playing around with, a complete plastic picnic set, a lovely set of vintage napkins, a cute little pottery fish, a plastic Swedish trivet with a design that has been "attributed" to Stig Linberg and one of those wooden drawing mannequins. During all of my years of art courses I never had one of those. I'm always drawn to them and this one had a nice patina so I couldn't resist! I found some more beauties today but didn't get a chance to photograph them so you'll have to wait till next week. (Hint: I mentioned one in this post)
Lastly, I went to a somewhat local estate sale and walked out with a bunch of mid-century magazines. There are a couple of each of these: Sunset, California Home, The American Home and Better Homes and Gardens. See all of the posties? I've looked through all of them and flagged ads and articles that I look forward to sharing with you on the blog bit by bit. My most exciting ad find displayed a set of Raymor Capri pieces used for an ad for food!
That about wraps up my week! I'll be sharing other backlogged items next week because I am going to avoid the thrifts this coming week. We'll see how that goes!
I'll be linking up with the lovely Sophie.
