I’ve been abstaining from thrift store shopping because my poor little apartment is bursting at the seams and I’m trying to be more conscientious and purposeful in regards to the things I spend money on.  I actually did a closet cleanse this past weekend in an effort to purge, so to speak, unused items that have been taking up valuable space, not to mention my fear of becoming a hoarder.  However, I can’t resist my local thrift store for too long, I love vintage and my radar is getting rusty – thrifting is a practiced skill after all.  Also, my Mr. is away tonight so a thrifting I will…, well went! Here is what I found…

This little pitcher

 

And this crystal lamp

I recently hit thrift store pay dirt, happening upon two Heath Ceramics ashtrays. One is medium in size and the other is extra large – perfect for holding all my bits and bobs.  I find vintage ashtrays to be really useful for things other than smoking, like holding jewelry or misc. items such as keys.

I visited the Heath Ceramics store when I was in LA and though I love their products, I felt a little overwhelmed, not only by the amount of choices but the prices were a bit beyond my budget. However, I was excited to see the wares in person – stoneware has a heft and organic texture that I find appealing, which was complimented by Heath’s modern shapes and designs.  I did come away with a few goodies, a tote bag, a coffee cup for the Mr. and tea cup for me.

I have a serious fondness, ok, maybe something more akin to an obsession, of vintage home goods and accessories.  I really enjoy foraging at my local thrift stores in search of my next vintage find. Here are some things that I recently procured.

I love the shape of this wooden container I found. I think it’s someones wood shop project because it has a plastic container built right in, not to mention the name dremeled into the bottom. Not sure what I will use it for yet.

I also found a two of these Mikasa plates. I couldn’t resist the bright pop of the orange flowers with the pale blue. Almost too pretty to eat on.
