My triumphant return to thrifting was successful. I hit up the flea market and a few thrift stores to yield a spectacular haul of delicious vintage wares! I even found a few things I'd been lusting on for years. But don't worry, everything here is for sale. Just e-mail me if you'd like to purchase anything pictured.
These green-topped bar stools were my first furniture purchase in a long while. I may paint the legs silver or bright orange...or try to sell them as is. They've been helpful at the home since I don't have enough seating for everyone at parties.
This portable coffee set was a fine find for the coffee fiend. It comes with an adapter that plugs into your car so you have a coffee fix on-the-go!
Bazooka Bubble Gum bucket! I got it for pocket change at the pound store, kept trying to put it back but my love of bold colors and graphic design won out in the end.
This is the third thermos of this kind I've purchased, and the vintage drink mixer satisfies my barware fetish nicely.
Sweet and summery, I've been trying avoid most vintage artwork these days but scooped up this fruit still-life anyway.
More lovely stackable mugs in a pleasant orange color. Loving the squirrel planter, it's already in Southern Crossing and planted with succulents!
I love the lines and pattern of these air-tight jars. I was on the prowl for more of these anyway to store my bulk food stock. I had to pair them with the Super Mario Brothers Bob-omb, they remind me of 80s arcade vintage fun.
And Bomb-omb is back to show off another nifty bar novelty. The clubs are drink stirrers and the caddy comes with a bottle opener. I can imagine Don Draper receiving this one for a gift...and promptly stabbing someone in the eye with the sharp part for his sick kicks. And Don Draper will get away with it because police won't arrest such a sexy man! I like this toy.
Robot comics! Oh, happy day. I'm definitely going to scan and print many of these pages for crafting projects.
They are filled with bold robot glory, there's a treasure on every page.
This coin bank elephant is playful and covered with a soft, downy felt. I love its eyes, so whimsical.
The inside is stuffed with wonderful photos and illustrations. If only I had time to scan each one. Speaking of books...
I found a delicious set of children's books and coloring books, some from back in the 30s! They're in excellent shape, I love the colors on the covers. I may have to do a follow up post with details on each one, if I got into it now this post would stretch into infinity.
I must show off the inside of the Mrs. Henny Ben book, though. A book I've lusted for since I flipped through it at a pricey antique store. The large textured pages are shockingly vibrant, and the fluid thoroughly 30s style recalls our favorite classic American cartoons.
My cup obsession continues. This is quite an incomplete set, but the shapes and colors sold me.
I love to make picnic basket sets and stick them in the shop, so I scooped up this large picnic basket for a song.
And I'm really enamored by the faux wood grain goodness of this metal basket. It's filled up with goodies and stuffed in the shop, but if it doesn't sell soon I might have to keep it for displaying robot toys. Or use it to pot-up a robot filled succulent still life...
I rarely buy accessories, but this hat! It was too dapper to leave behind.
Now, now, Mr. Owl. Don't be modest. You're one Dapper, sexy beast.
With this new addition I have seven mushroom jars in-stock now! I'm not having luck selling them but I'll scoop them up every time! Love 'em.
As you can tell from these moody photos my apartment is filled with the blinding light of 10,000 bright shining suns! It's interesting experimenting with different ways to take photos in here as I settle in.
Welp, back to work with me, as you can tell from yesterday's goal list I have a busy work week ahead of me! Remember, if you see anything you like in these haul posts you can e-mail me and I'll make a good deal for you!
