This past Friday I set out for cozy home furnishings and extras for my antique mall booth and to fill in my apartment, it's been looking bare after a big-time purge. The trouble with finding groovy home swag was wanting to keep it all, but I fought the urge and took it to Southern Crossing where they await new homes:
I almost left this mod table behind, glad I didn't! It's a lightweight folding leaf table with great gams. It fit perfectly into my Southern Crossing booth, if you're local and would like it let me know if you want to scoop it up! I forgot to get a better shot of the folding chairs I found, they've got faux wood grain on the seats. I love 'em and the rug, will totally keep it all if it doesn't sell soon. Uh oh!
My goal on Friday was to find items that make an impact at any cost, and this big groovy certainly fits the bill. The shade is less inspiring but it looks really in my mall booth. Again, it was tough to get this out of my house. That's when you know you've some good 'uns!
And speaking of lamps, found another gorgeous little guy at the thrifts. He's in the antique mall booth but will soon make it on Etsy where his kind sells well for me. ---->> Etsy
Next I let myself have some throw pillows at last, 'bout damn time. They really are comfortable as hell while adding some color to the decor.
And the mug fetish had to be satisfied with these two beautiful milk glass mugs, love the green and orange pattern on these. Also loved the circle-tray with its neon green contrasting color. ---->> On Etsy
Also had to scoop up this interesting tribal style mug, been using it for my green tea since I bought it.
I've been trying to avoid 1970s kitschy retro kitchen goodness since it's not selling as well as it used to but these two were so glorious with their dramatic wood grain, they had to come with me.
This mod tulip chair! I lusted for it when I saw one on Vintage Vixen, then encountered a similar one of my own. I may eventually switch the very worn white shag fabric on the top with a bright green shag fabric, but it's in my antique mall space for now.
I also scored tons of fun barware pieces. I love this black/bright green circle tray and these Rye and Scotch decanters. I've got an ice bucket fetish and couldn't leave this set behind, along with this beautiful trio of Sakura glasses. Now a duo. Oops. ----->> On Etsy
And a fun score I almost overlooked, a fun portable decanter set. It would be absolutely beautiful on the bar and it's small and light enough for you to tote the kid's soccer game or ballet recital. Get sloshed on the go! ---->> On Etsy
I found two of these gorgeous retro chairs, I love the shade of green and velvety texture of the fabric. They'll be going in front of Southern Crossing soon but I don't mind looking at them in my casa in the meantime.
I'm curious to see how these fluffy blue pillows will do inside of my booth at Southern Crossing. They make any room so cozy!
'Twas a very fruitful day of thrifting, I must say. I'll have to report back later with the FREE finds of the week. 'Til then, I think I've earned a little beach time before hitting work hard again! But before the beach, gotta get all this stuff unto Etsy. I'll be updating this post with the Etsy listings throughout the morning!
