Oh art, I live for thee. Yet thrifting for art is just troublesome. It's fun to store in your home, the trouble is that it takes long to sell. Ah well, here's a look at the art and impulse purchases I've been having behind-the-scenes around there parts:
I found two of these prints, one is a gift for a special friend who does a lot of bring culture and art to the city of Jacksonville, Florida. I bought it from a yard sale run by a former art gallery owner. It's a painting of Jacksonville's beautiful downtown skyline circa 1994, it's developed exponentially since then! Selling this for $15.00 if a Jax lover is interested. It's poster-size.
Remember this from my Thrift Wish List? Yep, I broke down and bought it. I am suffering buyer's remorse, so you can buy it off my wall if you desire. Shoot me an e-mail! She is an absolutely gorgeous 1962 "Big Eye Art" print with a gorgeous color palate. I love her huge almond-eyes. This is another poster-size piece.
I bought these adorable girls from a church sale. I must seek out more church sale, the low prices were beautiful, I tell you! They're $25 on Etsy but I'll sell them on the blog for $12.00.
I bought this donkey planter at the same sale, he's too adorable and filled with a pothos tropical plant at Southern Crossing at the moment. $15.00 on Etsy but you can earn it for $9.00.
Another find from the church sale, a groovy mushroom teapot. I can't resist a groovy 1970s mushroom no matter how hard I try. It's hanging out on Etsy.
It's no secret that I love the hell out of some Michael Jackson, a day is not complete without at least one MJ song playing in the background while I work.
Of course I had to have this adorable Michael Jackson book for 15 cents. Released at the height of fame in 1984, it's a thing of beauty.
There's a quiz in it, I dare you hardcore MJ fans to take it! Let me know if you want me to follow up with the questions in the comments or on Facebook. They're challenge questions, I'm an informed fan and I missed a few. One answer I only knew from listening to Quincy Jone's commentary from an "Off the Wall" re-release CD!
I love a utilitarian satchel and always scoop them up when I see them. This one is On Etsy for $30.00 but I'll sell it on the blog for $17.00. Matches everything!
This art piece purchase was a complete impulse buy, a beautiful piece by a local artist. Selling it with the matting for easy framing for $10.00, it's called "The Great Speckled Bird" and it's a limited edition print by Desirée Kantrim.
Let's Wheel and Deal: It's ALL for sale, so e-mail me if you'd like to buy anything you see. I've been making group deals and general deals on my Etsy items for blog readers, let me know if you want multiple items and I'll apply and group discount.
