I have not been thrift shopping this week.
No, really, I am telling the truth.
Okay, so you regular readers remember I bought so much last week, I could not put it all in one post.
Well, here's the next group. There's more junk left to unpack - when I find it.
South Boundary is a much-photographed and overly-painted street in our town. I found the street sign at an antiques store over in Columbia and paid really real money to bring it back home where it belongs. It is an old one - like sixties.
The two round things are mirrors off vintage cars. I loved their retro-futuristic shape.
Genuine antique wrought iron supports.
I still cannot believe the people were selling them.
They were updating their house.
Time to put your wig hat on, and here's a round case to carry it in.
For some reason in 1970, every girl had both wigs and falls.
I had a short brown pixie wig and a streaked blonde bob wig.
I did not need a fall - I had very long hair.
A group portrait of a fraternity in Connecticut - 1962 - Theta Chi.
A cute Christmas vignette (I am not doing fall this year) A red and green small Thermos, a brass pedestal bowl, two small foreign books, and the delightful hopping flocked Santa in great shape.
A pillow cover hooked in colorful wool on linen.
Turn it inside out to see the directions.
I have no idea why every "N" is written backwards.
Some more vintage restaurant ware - a small ironstone pitcher, a small plate, and a salt shaker.
Yes, I think I already have this size pitcher -trying for a graduated set.
I told Chucks an outright lie that I was not sure, but would sell it if I had a duplicate.
He believed it.
Silly, silly Chucks.
Another church collection plate.
This makes the second one.
Slightly different style.
Now wish I had three.
I do not like having two's.
Another metal file box - I have much more than two of these.
A cute little black metal cabinet. with a shelf inside.
A heavy-duty metal base for a restaurant table.
If I manage to find or make a top, maybe I can display my restaurant dishes there.
Which would mean I would have to clear out a space to put the table.
Which would mean I would have to find all my restaurant dishes and pitchers.
Which probably means I will just stick a top on it and sell it.
The things I bought this week were stuff for painting and sanding.
Except for this case of bottle brush trees.
Yes, folks, it is time for the bleaching of the trees.
I have some new ideas up my sleeves for this year.
I hope ten dozen trees are enough.
