July has been an extremely busy thrift shopping month for me. I've shopped so much I don't even have pictures for all of the items I've brought home in the last 30 day. Some of it I still haven't taken out of the bags yet. It's also safe to say because of this excess thrifting I haven't done much listing, so I'm ashamed to say I feel like I'm starting to feel like it's being neglected. I'm hoping, starting tonight to turn over a new leaf and get a few things up and listed. Fingers crossed.
My favorite find this month is my first piece of Catherine Holm. I was wandering the kitchenware section at St. Leo's thrift store in Hilton, and happen to look down at just the right moment. It was nested snuggly inside a number of other glass baking pans. My heart skipped a beat for sure! I won't be parting with this one, that's for sure. I also found a teal blue pyrex baking dish at an estate sale which I'll be hanging onto for my own kitchen.
This little vase, was a happy find. It's the second I've found while thrifting. The first was the same tree with an owl as seen below. He sold some time ago. When I found this one with the adorable little dear I just knew I had to snatch it up for the store. He's just so sweet!
Two more vintage paint by numbers.
Vera Neuman is a fun find on occassion. The calendar above was taped to a crib side, in the linen aisle of St. Leo's thrift shop. Almost missed it.
At the same place there was this vintage Vera Scarf. It's odd because I've never seen one that doesn't have a crazy pattern. This one is so simple it may have been missed if not for the tag saying it was.
I love these two hand painted cutting boards. They are beautiful! They are definately Russian because of the tag, but I have no idea what it says. Does anyone speak Russian??
I found this little cutie while in Vermont. I just love the cook books from the 1960 and 1970's. They have so much character, and wonderful imagery. The recipes are pretty fun too!
Who could resist leaving these little Norcrest Bunnies behind? I think they will make someone a nice addition to their shelf, and they are in amazing condition.
Norcrest right across the backside!
And last, but not least, more owl trivets. I love the shape of these little guys and they hang wonderfully on the wall, but I'm not in love with the black. I've got one on my wall already that's been spray painted, so I think these little ones will have the same treatment applied.
Well there's only about 1/3 of my July thrifting finds. It's been an amazing month. Now it's time to start focusing on the listing and think about the potential holiday sales.
What did you find thrifting? I'd love to see!
