As with everything I procrastinate, and wait to the last minute to try to get something,anything done (or half done), so lets see if I accomplish any holiday projects, until then lets talk thrift.
My thrift stores were pretty sparse this week, I grabbed a couple of items, but nothing exciting. This weekends sales were a little weird too, not heavily stocked, but I did manage to grab a few things.
My favorite find was this vintage metal typewriter table.
|It stills needs a little TLC to make it look really nice.|
And look, this is not vintage but a totally awesome find. A compact picnic table.
Yup, this table and chairs all fold up nicely into a compact carrying case.
I've looked this up online before, but I didn't want to drop the money for one. This one was a whopping $10. Score!
Last but not least this desk lamp.
I'm liking these gooseneck desk lamps more and more. I sold one I had on Etsy and was soo happy when the buyer said
"ohmigosh, this is just like the lamp my naval officer father used ... i love having it on my own desk!"
I know there are some people that don't feel, or understand the "vintage thing", maybe it's not nostalgic for them....yet, but for me it is nostalgic. Of course all the things I see and buy are not reminders of my past, but I do see a lot of things that are, and with that customers comment it just proves nostalgia tugs and gives others that longing to have something that reminds them of their past. They want that memory, even if it's not that authentic "original" item from their past.
That's all I got for my thrifting. How was your thrift week?
