This time of year means there is a lot of stuff out there to be had. With garage sales, estate sales, flea markets, thrift stores, and even antique stores offering all kinds of bargains, hunting smarter as not to overload is definitely a goal of mine although one I struggle with constantly. The blog community has assisted in me looking for more quality items and educated me in areas that I'm less familiar. I have found some pretty nice pieces in the last few weeks and many of those I may have passed on or not even given a glance had I not been spending some time "researching" via other's blogs. Thank you people for sharing your knowledge. Here are some items I have picked up lately:
|McCoy pottery planter, Scandia pattern|
|Arabia of Finland stoneware teapot, Kaira pattern circa 1971-1975|
|Marzi & Remy West German vase, Pottery Craft of California vase,|
and unknown blue pottery vase
|Does anyone recognize the mark on this vase?|
|Mexico pottery owl by Ken Edwards|
Here are a few more finds:
|Dolphin brass and enamel tray - Made in Israel|
|Hand blown glass whale|
|Small Art Glass vase|
|California pottery (CALIF 1046) soup tureen, lid, under plate, and ladle|
So, has you thrifting style changed? Does what you see on other blogs influence your buying decisions? I know I appreciate the diversity of information available, and enjoy seeing and learning more about thrift finds. Thank you bloggers!
