When I'm in the midst of a long product photography session, denied the privilege of enjoying the delicious Florida weather taunting from my six workspace windows, I vow to stick to my temporary thrift fast. Then the wicked candy house derailed my vow! My roommate and I were curbside hunting and encountered a yard sale held at a small vintage cottage. It was the sweet gingerbread house that led Hansel and Gretel to their doom, the roof was even pitched in that charming nostalgic way that resembles an upside down ice cream cone. Of course I stopped to look. This is what I found:
The inexplicable attraction to ice buckets had to be fulfilled! It's probably the beautiful shapes, nice condition, and practicality that drew me to these. Excellent for parties, picnicking (ice on the go) and even creative craft and kitchen storage. I've got the Red Train Bucket, Sleek Black Bucket, and Sunny Yellow Bucket on Etsy.
Continuing my love for simple design, shapes, and colors, I couldn't leave these beautiful 1984 Chocolate Lovers Mugs by Ernesco behind, either. They were very reflective and hard to photograph, SO beautiful in-person.
It's hard not to buy every beautiful Japanese thing I see, I end up leaving a lot behind. But these sweet girls in Bakelite frames (from the 1960s me thinks?) were too beautiful to leave behind.
The colors are very vibrant and they're in beautiful condition. The combination of bright teal/red/and the earthy golden hues in the frame give it energy. They really pop! They're listed on Etsy.
This lovely mushroom plaque is something I would normally leave behind as well, just not the type of thing I've having luck selling lately, but she was a beauty. She's sitting pretty on Etsy and in my antique mall space waiting for a new home.
I'm a non-smoker, but can never resist a beautiful boomerang atomic style ash tray. You might even want to eat this one, the minty green and chocolate brown recall a peppermint patty! I love using them for supply storage and soap dishes until they sell. It's on Etsy, along with an ash tray set I recently added.
