Sharing a few "finds" and "consigns" today.
I've gathered some things to take for consignment. I do enjoy consigning at
"The Cottage", a sweet shop in my town.
I always like what I buy, but am willing to part with
most some of it.
(See the colorful tablecloth under the loot? I'll be showing it off in a tablescape soon.)
Vintage aprons, tablecloths, tea & dish towels, all freshly laundered and ironed.
The owner asked for spring-summer looking linens. Done!
Fun colors and graphics. Bye-bye...sniff, sniff. As much as I love my linens,
selling really is a necessity because I don't have room for all of them.
What? Did you say stop buying them? Ha! When I find them
I fall in love and they need to be rescued. :)
Didn't bring home much from the sales I hit this week-end.
Some summer style plates, vintage Noritake serving plate, metal floral trash can
(already in use in the bedroom), cute fake cherries, & wooden box for crafting.
& 3 Little Golden books, who can resist them?
I couldn't pass up this glass serving bowl. It has a gold rim, etched design, and was a dollar.
It did a nice job holding the pepper plants I also bought home.
Doyle found the one spot of shade in the field under the pear tree. Smart boy!
I think I forgot to show you this ~ one of our all time best finds!
Our home is eclectic, mostly mid-century modern, and Heywood Wakefield prevails.
A couple weeks ago Mr. Retro and I went to the Habitat for Humanity store to look for
lighting for the garage. But wait~they had furniture too. We thought they were all
about plumbing fixtures, doors, and things like that. Mr. Retro spied this cool chair we had
the perfect spot for. We loved it, the price was right, and we just about danced our way out of
the store with it. This is why we continue to haunt the resale places....right? Of course!
We weren't sure it was Hey Wake until we got it home and checked ~ score!
A 1950's Heywood Wakefield "Ladies Club Chair".
Actually it is in good shape, but eventually we will reupholster. Excited just
thinking about looking for some great retro fabric to really make it fabulous.
Did you hit any sales this week? Find any fun treasures?
Would love to hear! Wishing you all a great week!
