Thrift Haul: Groovy 1960s Goodness From an Odd Little Florida Thrift Store

Everything pictured is for sell. The deer are here. Large mushroom jar here and small mushroom jar here. The shelf and cart are in my Southern Crossing booth.

The thrift and junk culture is strong here in North Florida. You can almost take any random road and encounter undiscovered thrift gems. There are two small accidentally encountered indie thrifts, a mere five minute drive from my apartment. The prices and selection are random but I had some luck the last couple of weeks and a clandestine corner thrift shop, located right next to diminutive Dreamette a legendary local icecream shop.



I try to avoid wall hangings and artwork these days, it's a slow seller that relies on a special connection with the buyer, but this rainbow piece was so gloriously bright and 1970s beautiful. Had to have it! ------> On Etsy


I found another beautiful rolling cart  (I call 'em bar carts) which hopefully sold inside of Southern Crossing.

 if you're local and you'd like to scoop it up. I'm selling it for $18.00 and I have another older, similar one like it. The 3 silver rimmed glasses may be real Dorothy Thrope glasses. They're chilling in my antique mall booth for the moment, too.

I'm also enjoying these lovely retro glass tumblers, perfect for making mixed drinks. -----> On Etsy


And these stunning coasters/serving trays. Anyone have additional information on these? I'm assuming they're from the 1960s, a lucky thrift store score and practical, too.  -----> On Etsy


It's the mark of a plant lover when one of your favorites scores ever is another damn planter. I just love the colors and organic shape on this one. Also enjoying the nice retro watering can for watering my freshly planted herbs.  See more of the planter on Etsy  here and the here.


The final sexy score (from the same thrift store a day later). This mod chair is huge and in like-new condition with sleek atomic legs. Very heavy, practically indestructible! Selling it locally for $60.00. She's huge, sturdy, and comfortable. Been enjoying reading while tucked into this voluminous seat.


Edit: Had to add a photo of Yuko enjoying the couch! It's the perfect couch for a kitty lover, her claws do not dent this baby, it's made of adamantium or something. I have never encountered such an indestructible seat!

CAN'T keep it all: If you see anything you'd like to buy, send me an e-mail! Take if off my hands! :D

  2. Florida thrift shops really are the best! Too bad we no longer live in the area, or I would snap up that bar cart. I am also loving the chair, lovely and comfy.
