Actually it was Craigslist that got me out of the house today. I came across a 1960's bookshelf on Craigslist last night for $25. It's a design I've always loved so I wrote to see if I could pick it up today. I figured at $25 it would already be gone but nope, I am the lucky new owner. I drove about 20 minutes today to grab it then made some thrift-stops on the way home.
Pardon the bad picture. It's so bright in my living room with the afternoon sun. I can't wait to arrange this with new mid century smalls. For now I threw on whatever I could find laying around so it wasn't bare.
I just love this multi tier look and the openness of the design. West Elm and Crate and Barrel do modern designs similar to this original 60's look.
What else did I find today?
This cool little guy caught my attention. Not sure what it is - there is a hole in the top, but I just like it. Very 60's native, tiki, folk arty huh?
Mid Century glass Blendo bowl. It was a strange find because I already have one exactly like it! This one will go in my shop.
Lotus fine china cake plate. Design by Georges Briard. I love the retro greek geometric look. I love this design on rugs.
I also picked up this awesome large glass bowl that says "Munchies" on it in a cool retro type. I had to give it to my husband as his new popcorn bowl. Why? Because one of his many pet names is Munchies. Don't ask, long story!
I just love these lazy susan style dishes. I see them often and usually pass them up but I love the pink and aqua colors of this set and they're in perfect condition. They're stamped Classica Original Made in USA.
Lastly, I found this little triangle Mersman table. Unfortunately the previous owner painted it brown but I'm confident I can restore it to its former glory.
Not a bad day thrifting!
