Thrift Haul: A Vintage Kitchen, Mod Housewares Will Charm Your Pants Off


I just can't quit pretty vintage plates and housewares, they suck me in at the thrifts and they're so fun to photograph and stage. All of the scores in this post have a lot of personality and beauty. Check 'em out:


I wrote about leaving this piece behind in early February and Hunting Tigress kindly pointed out that it was a valuable mod set and even listed the value of the pieces for me! I loved the look of it regardless so I knew if it was still where I left I'd buy it next time I saw it.


Midwinter Ltd (England), Moon Pattern, Stonehenge Line, 1973, Rare Collectible Dining Set is on Etsy. I love using it for tea, soups, food photography..it's just a gorgeous set.


The groovy 1970s typography on this pair won me over. I thought it would be fun to sell it as a set.

The napkin holder would be fun to host notepads or scraps of paper for writing quick ideas. I have it listed over on Etsy


This beautiful Royal Haegar vase was a donation from BF's mom, she found it at a yard sale. I love the piece, lovely shape and texture!


It's chilling with me at the house until it sells on Etsy. Inspiring me with it's atomic era beauty.

I believe this kitschy collection of plates slipped under the radar. I love the welcoming messages they evoke, they make a kitchen or any room in your home feel cozy.


Until they sell on Etsy they're one of the first things you'll see when you enter my apartment. I especially love that first one depicting all the creature comforts: a smoke, a black coffee, a cozy bed and an earthy den with a big fireplace. That's what keeps bringing me back to vintage housewares, especially small ones for the kitchen and home, that sense of homeyness one piece can instantly provide.

So tell me, what did you score at the thrifts? If you like any piece you see, e-mail me, it's all for sale!

  4. I have stacks of vintage plates too. They are normally very inexpensive at the thrifts and too pretty to leave behind. What I am going to do with themf I have no idea. Eat off of them, maybe?

    Have a wonderful week!

  10. How funny, I had four of those Moon pattern plates when I was 18 (I am 43) that I bought from a thrift store to eat off of. I have no idea where they are now, think they got redonated at some point in the last 20 years. I guess I had excellent taste.

  26. Besides my C course, I have a job and family, both of which compete to get my time. I couldn't find sufficient time for the challenging C assignments, and these people came in and saved my skin. I must commend them for the genius Programming Assignment Help. Their C Homework Help tutors did the best job and got me shining grades

  28. Matlab Assignment Help helped me to complete my seventh Matlab assignment, which was also the best-performed! It scored 92/100, which I've never scored before on any other assignment/exam in my lifetime. Otherwise, their service was as quick as usual. The delivery was also on time. I'm now requesting to use this same programmer multiple times. He seems the best in Image Processing tasks. Meanwhile, I'll ask for more Matlab Homework Help soon

  29. I have just come across your post and I believe this is exactly what I am looking for. I want an economics assignment help from a tutor who can guarantee me a top grade. Do you charge per page or does it depend on the
    bulk of the economics homework help being completed? More to that if the work is not good enough do you offer free corrections

  30. The ardent Programming Homework Help tutor that nailed down my project was very passionate. He answered my Python questions with long, self-explanatory solutions that make it easy for any average student to revise. Moreover, he didn't hesitate to answer other questions, too, even though they weren't part of the exam. If all Python Homework Help experts can be like this then they can trend as the best Programming school ever online

  31. Hey STATA homework help expert, I need to know if you can conduct the Kappa measurement of agreement. This is what is in my assignment. I can only hire someone for statistics assignment help if they are aware of the kappa measurement of agreement. If you can do it, then reply to me with a few lines of what the kappa measure of agreement is. Let me know also how much you charge for statistics homework help in SAS.

  33. Hi, other than economics assignment help are there other subjects that you cover? I am having several assignments one needs an economics homework help expert and the other one needs a financial expert. If you can guarantee quality work on both then I can hire you to complete them. All I am sure of is that I can hire you for the economics one but the finance one I am not sure

  34. Hey there, I need an Statistics Homework Help expert to help me understand the topic of piecewise regression. In our lectures, the concept seemed very hard, and I could not understand it completely. I need someone who can explain to me in a simpler way that I can understand the topic. he/she should explain to me which is the best model, the best data before the model and how to fit the model using SPSS. If you can deliver quality work then you would be my official Statistics Assignment Help partner.

Take, for statistics assignment experts my case, where I need you to provide me with the Statistics Homework Help on plotting a scatter plot with a regression line? How much should that cost? Do you charge on the basis of the workload or have a constant payment?

  40. As much as there are discouragements, it is true that mathematics is hard. Like in my case, I was never discouraged by anyone about math but I still find it very hard and that is why I am requesting your Math assignment help. I am tired of struggling with mathematics and spending sleepless nights trying to solve sums that I still don’t get right. Having gone through your Math homework help, I am sure that I will get the right help through you. Please tell me what I need to be able to hire you.

  41. Just what I was looking for. I am struggling with my accounting assignment. I want an Accounting Assignment Help tutor to offer me two services. One is to complete my accounting assignments and the other is to provide me with online classes. I believe you are experienced enough to offer both Accounting Homework Help and online classes. I know you charge assignments based on the bulk. Tell me how much you charge for the online classes per hour.
