After a couple of busy non-thrifting weeks, I finally got back to the thrift store this past weekend! It wasn't a best ever trip, but it was satisfying. I was looking for some jeans for friends' kids, and did well on that count, which makes me happy, since I love picking up useful things for people. I struck out on clothes for myself, but that's OK. And I also brought home the following:
A counties of Ireland tea towel (I am getting huge into the funky tea towels) and a Jamie Oliver cookbook for M. (who is reading it as I type this)
An etching by Alec Stern. I've never heard of the artist, but I very much liked the etching, and it was unlike anything else we have AND came matted!
This funny little bowl--does anybody remember what these are called? I remember when everybody's mom had them, but I don't see them much anymore.
A (sadly incomplete, but still cool) set of vintage (70s?) mini forks in their box.
A new in package set of cool block-printed notecards.
Also, something I thrifted a while ago but I don't know if showed you. This piece is in great condition and it is, I think, a limited edition or promotional piece from Pyrex. I don't know what I am going to do with it. Anybody collect these?
