A friend gave me this gorgeous vintage school desk when he moved. Love this piece!
I filter vintage, thrifted bits, and freebies in and out of my life like hookers go through Johns. Speaking of hookers, I have a similar shameless approach for accepting free things. I've a rep as a reseller/thrifty person/cheap-bastard-who-buys-nothing and friends and acquaintances occasionally treat me to boxes of goodness. Most of it gets filtered back to the thrift stores, quickly sold, or listed for sale. Here are some hidden secret scores you didn't see:
Another treasure trove of hidden gems include the following sets of beautiful pyrex mugs. These and many other goodies were kindly donated by Becca (See her guest post on finding mod here, her collection is stunning). I took ample photos of them a while back but then lost all my computer files! It's been fun to finally get them recaptured and online. (See the set above on Etsy)
Here's a lovely set with blue detail. (See it on Etsy)
Another with green and yellow. I'd appreciate it if anyone knew the actual pattern titles for these. (See it On Etsy)
This green striped set is quite handsome. (Hanging out on Etsy)
And a minty green set, they're made of the stuff inside your Klondike bar. Refreshing! Need to re-take the photos those, so hard to get the accurate color right. They are even more beautiful in person. (On Etsy)
I see this pattern everywhere, what's it called?! I must know! (See it on Etsy)
Another set of animals hiding in the shadows for a time are these ones I'm now trying to sell as a set. Just tired of sitting them sit around. I need to force myself to stop buying knick-knacks, working on it! (See it on Etsy)
I've had this gorgeous little Japanese teacup and saucer sitting in the shadows for ages, glad to finally show it off. (On Etsy.)
And I love the neon orange of this vintage napkin ring set. I always see them as perfect to sit out for Thanksgiving. (On Etsy)
And to go with the beautiful Japanese cup, lovely Japanese plates. (On Etsy)
And a final never-seen score for now, this vintage scale. I love the colors and used it as my trusty postal scale for a while until I found one that goes up to 10lbs. Still have yet to order a needed digital one, these old ones do the trick. (On Etsy)
Group and Daily Deals? I'm cleaning out my merchandise stockpile so daily deals are returning to social media. Follow me on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook for crazy low deals of gorgeous vintage. I also make deals on Etsy items with readers and often do group deals, so send me an e-mail if there's anything you see and would like.
