What I found: Jan. 24

Even with all my griping about thrift stores, there is still many a treasure to be found.   Below are the items I brought home this week.


My obsession with Mid Century portraits continues.   I call her Margot.


Brass animals, I can't quit you.


How amazing is this lucite and brass desk organizer?!


Almost amazing as this Sterling mid century candle holder.


I love this Dansk salt shaker and pepper mill.   I also brought home another larger somewhat matchy Dansk pepper mill that were planning on keeping to replace one that isn't so pretty.


His and Hers record album sorter


I love a good thermos and both of these are clean as a whistle.


 This is a gorgeous ice bucket, ready to party.


I'll be adding this beauty to my growing milk glass collection.  I've never seen a piece quite like it.

    1. I agree - I'm having a hard time even thinking about listing it for sale because I love her so much! I think maybe I should start a vintage portrait wall in my house somewhere. :)

  4. Brass all the way! My favorite has to be the bird. The salt and pepper are very nice as well.

  5. OMG you find out the name of that ice bucket let me know. I own it too! And your portrait.....I hate to use wording like run you down to get it and I so wouldn't do that. But I would seriously consider it.

  10. I'm in love with that ice bucket! And the desk organizer. So many great finds!
    I too have the brass animal affliction. They're so hard to turn down! Do your thermoses sell well? I have heard different things from different people, so I tend to leave them behind. The majority have a hard time moving them.
